Abstract

GDSS is a popular and attractive topic in decision field. It is reasonable to introduce multi-Agent technology and methodology into GDSS because they are both distributed systems and support interaction in group members. We look at the development of GDSS as being a process of putting together a coordinated workflow of collaborating Agents that is able to support a problem-solving process. We propose models to describe character of Agents and issue in GDSS, define the modules of group-decision as cognitive, group organizing, decision-making by cooperation, feedback and adjust decision, conduce consensus decision by negotiation, knowledge management and repository evolution, and explain the process of every part.
