Rapidly changing conditions which affect manufacturing industries globally make that new demands be imposed on methods, tools and philosophies, also providing an increasing ability to companies in competing. In addition to several remarkable technology advances enabling a mimic of the human brain activity, a human centred approach is intended and pleaded for. This paper aims at identifying those characteristic features of modem DSS that are highly demandable and acceptable by human factors, and
