DSS Types

Dennis wrote: 

Dear Dr. Power, I am wondering what are the types of DSS? From your 
site, I know two types, data-driven and model-driven. Are there other 
types of DSS or are the types actually created when a business really 
need them? Regards, Dennis

There are 5 generic types of DSS in terms of the dominant component of 
the Decision Support System. Also, I identify other types of DSS based 
on users, delivery and purpose. 

The five generic DSS are: 

* Communications-Driven DSS
* Data-Driven DSS
* Document-Driven DSS 
* Knowledge-Driven DSS
* Model-Driven DSS

Group DSS are a hybrid of Communications-Driven and Model-Driven DSS. 
In terms of users, there are Inter-Organizational and 
Intra-Organizational DSS. In terms of delivery, there are Web-Based, 
LAN-Based, and Mainframe-Based DSS. Finally, in terms of purpose, there 
are function specific, industry specific and general purpose DSS. 
Comments on this framework are welcomed.
