The main purpose of this paper is to contribute to the discussion about the design of computer and communication systems that can aid the management process. 1.1 Historical Overview We propose that Decision Support System can be considered as a design conception conceived within the computer industry to facilitate the use of computer technology in organisations (Keen, 1991). This framework, built during the late 1970s, offers computer and communication technology as support to the decision process which constitutes, in this view, the core of the management process. The DSS framework offers the following capabilities: • Access: ease of use, wide variety of data, analysis and modelling capacity. • Technological: software gel)eration tools. • Development modes: interactive and evolutionary. Within this perspective, computer and communication technologies are seen as an amplification of the human data processing capabilities which limit the decision process. Thus, the human being is understood metaphorically as a data processing machine. Mental processes are associated with the manipulation of symbols aOO human communication to signal transmission.

The Hungarian economy is on a new development path after coping successfully with challenges raised by national economic transition and the increasing globalization in the first half of the 1990s. Competitiveness has become a key issue for both macroeconomic analysts and for decision makers in business and government. Recognition of the above in 1995 led the Budapest University of Economic Sciences to start a research program titled In Global Competition - Microeconomic Factors of Competitiveness of the Hungarian Economy. A focal element of the research program was an opinion survey. The analysis of the database of two surveys makes it possible to provide an overview of the changes in the behavior, performance and selected operational fields of Hungarian companies between 1995 and 1999. The main findings of this analysis are published in this book. Besides the description of the Hungarian developments, the authors provide some more general conclusions for those interested in micro and

Decision Support Systems (DSS) are typically viewed as computerized aids for managerial decision making at the individual level. By contrast, this volume focuses on DSS for group and organizational decision making. The contributions are from academics and practitioners who are developing new concepts, techniques and software to support decision-related activities involving multiple participants. The book is in five sections. The first looks at the organizational setting of group decision support systems and experiences of various enterprises in their use. The second section is concerned with supporting negotiation processes, decision situations where the participants have conflicting goals. The third section deals with analysis and design issues in developing group/organizational DSS. Behavioral issues relating to the impact of the technology are examined in section four, while the fifth section discusses practical experiences with group decision rooms'.
