    Editor, DSSResources.com

    Implementing a decision support database involves tradeoffs. A designer needs to transform an ideal, logical data model into a model that exploits effectively the capabilities and constraints of the actual hardware computing environment and a specific database management system. The overall goal is designing the database component of a data-driven DSS to minimize query times. Efficient use of storage space is much less a concern. Tradeoffs involve reasonably safe design changes, more aggressive compromises and technical optimization changes (cf., Haughey, 2006). There is no single best physical design. DSS analysts must ask probing questions and understand the design tradeoffs.
