This Web-Based, Model-Driven DSS can help evaluate the Return on Investment (ROI) for a specific DSS project. Enter values under Assumptions and Estimates and then click Calculate. The results are then displayed. Use this decision support tool to test different sets of assumptions and to see results change.
Benefit/Cost Ratio -- When benefits equal costs the ratio is 1. Projects with ratios greater than one
have benefits that exceed costs.|
LT Return -- Long term return for the project is future benefits minus costs discounted to the present time.
Payback -- The payback calculation estimates how many years are needed for benefits to exceed costs of developing and operating the proposed DSS.
