This paper is one of the series of 11 Working Papers presenting the software for interactive decision support and software tools for developing decision support systems. These products constitute the outcome of the contracted study agreement between the System and Decision Sciences Program at IIASA and several Polish scientific institutions. The theoretical part of these results is presented in the IIASA Working Paper WP-88-071 entitled "Theory, Software and Testing Examples in Decision Support Systems". This volume contains the theoretical and methodological backgrounds of the software systems developed within the project.

This paper describes the methodological background and user manual of the Dynamic Interactive Network Analysis System (DINAS) which enables the solution of various multiobjective transshipment problems with facility location. DINAS utilizes an extension of the classical reference point approach to handling multiple objectives. A special TRANSLOC solver was developed to provide DINAS with solutions to single-objective problems. It is based on the branch and bound scheme with a new implementation of the simplex special ordered network (SON) algorithm with implicit representation of the simple and variable upper bounds (VUB & SUB). DINAS has been designed as a menu-driven and user-friendly system armed with a special network editor which reduces to minimum effort associated with defining real-life problems.
