An Ontology-driven Framework for Supporting Complex Decision Process [article]

Junyi Chai, James N.K. Liu
2011 arXiv   pre-print
The study proposes a framework of ONTOlogy-based Group Decision Support System (ONTOGDSS) for decision process which exhibits the complex structure of decision-problem and decision-group.  ...  The system allows decision makers to participate in group decision-making through the web environment, via the ontology relation.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors would like to acknowledge the partial supports from the GRF 5237/08E of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  ...
