Decision Support Systems (DSS) are a new kind of information systems as yet not well understood by managers or even by researchers in management science. The purpose of this paper is to present, as simply as possible, the concept underlying DSS, to discuss its applications to management and to examine some of the concerns managers might have regarding DSS. It is important to understand DSS because they offer managers the opportunity to directly improve their managerial effectiveness.
