The book contains contributions in the field of aspiration-led Decision Support Systems (DSS). It consists of 3 parts. Part 1 is composed of 15 theoretical papers. It starts with general papers explaining the methodological approach and the theoretical backgrounds of the methodology presented in the book. The other papers are devoted to aspects of linear programming in the context of DSS and of nonlinear model generation and manipulation for DSS and design of decision support systems for nonlinear problems. Part 2 contains six papers related to experiences in developing and using Decision Support Systems for programming development of a selected branch of chemical industry. Part 3 of the book contains short descriptions of the Decision Support Software. The software products comprise four prototype DSS for supporting various classes of decision problems, three multiple objective mathematical programming packages which can be used as components for building dedicated DSS, and an experimental version of a DSS for supporting bargaining and negotiations.
