Decision support systems

Decision support systems

Decisions are based on a multitude of information which can't possibly be taken in and interpreted all at the same time. Interactive software systems support with curating the information necessary for specific tasks and visualising it. This makes it possible for the deciding person to consider all the relevant aspects. The decisionmaking is based on an in-depth analysis of the current situation. Special procedures of interactive visualisation are used to show just as much as is needed in dynamic overviews of the situation. Then a probability-based analysis is made for the simulation and prediction. Depending on the predefined assessment criteria for the use-case, optimal decisions can be derived from that.

One of the areas where this gets used is civil security. In the BMBF-Project ArGUS, an assistance systems is used to protect against possible drone attacs, in the BMBF-Project S2UCRE the decision support is used for security at major events. In the BMBF-Project ASARob procedures of decision support are used for the navigation of an assitance robot.
