In recent years, there has been considerable fruitful collaboration between the System and Decision Sciences (SDS) Program and the Energy Project at IIASA. This paper gives an overview of this joint work, which involves the use of methodological tools developed in SDS to analyze decision situations based on models constructed in the Energy Project.

The paper starts with a study of the use of the earliest version of DIDASS in conjunction with the energy supply model MESSAGE. It then describes how construction of more advanced energy models such as MESSAGE II, SEMA (an Austrian energy model), and GATE (a model of gas trade in Europe) took place in parallel with the development of an interactive multiple-criteria LP-solver (IMM), which represents a first step towards the integration of modeling and optimization processes in the analysis of complex decision situations.

We hope that such collaboration will continue to provide a driving force for advances in different areas of IIASA research.
