A DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM TAYLORED FOR ROMANIAN SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES

Razvan Petrusel

Abstract

This paper presents an overview of a prototype of a real-world decision support system (DSS) that was developed in order to improve financial decisions in Romanian small and medium enterprises (SME). The goal of the paper is to show weaknesses in strategic, tactic and operative financial decision making in Romanian SME and to show how improvement is possible by use of a cash-flow based DSS and several specialised expert systems. The paper focuses mainly on requirements elicitation and on system validation. The impact and benefits of using the Information Technology in decision-making processes within the enterprise are highlighted.
