A decision support process (DSP), defined as an approach to decision support, uses a programming environment to aid the decision maker. The DSP is discussed and a system architecture using a hierarchical planning approach to support DSP activities is proposed. These stages include problem solving, solution planning, tools integration, and model execution. A comparative study of DSP research with respect to these stages is made. Using a conceptual framework for DSP as the basis for proposing a system architecture for assisting DSP, the design and development concerns based on hierarchical planning and an attribute based approach are outlined, and the system, expert decision support process (XDSP), presently under development is described.
