Abstract

One of the activities of the System and Decision Sciences Program is the collaboration with scientists and institutes from different countries and with other programs and projects at IIASA in the field of Methodology of Decision Analysis. The main results of these activities are the development of theory, methodology and software for Decision Support Systems. A considerable amount of experience and software has been accumulated for over ten years of this type of cooperation. However, the analysis of the results of software development activities indicates the need for setting and observing some specified Guidelines for Software Development.

This Working Paper contains a first version of such Guidelines which is the result of discussions with software developers. The draft of this Working Paper has been distributed for comments to about hundred scientists involved in development of software for Decision Support Systems. Since no reservations for the proposed Guidelines have been communicated to the author, one can assume that there is a general agreement for setting these Guidelines as a working scheme for the development of software for Decision Support Systems within the cooperation with the System and Decision Sciences Program. Although the Guidelines are oriented for a specific type of software, most of them can and should be observed in the development of any kind of software.
