Management may opt to use a DSS as it improves operations by using the information gleaned by management systems and coupling data analysis tools with high-level optimisation procedures. In today’s competitive business climate, impeccable decision support system software has become vital as it offers undeniable advantages. The most suitable DSS depends on organisational culture, complexity, and size. You will learn that DSSs are used for making common day-to-day choices and help predict future trends in production and distribution, essential departments in a manufacturing business. Their effectiveness, flexibility, and efficiency have to be up to par. While many factors are involved, a manufacturer’s success depends on the quality of the goods produced and how quickly they can distribute their products to meet the customers' demands.

Learn what net present value (NPV) is and why it is one of the most extensively used calculations for assessing capital investment proposals. This course shows you why companies invest heavily in their production and distribution departments. Management in these departments needs capable systems to assist with unbiased and well-defined decisions as there is very little room for error.

Finally, it highlights the many benefits of having a DSS in your production and distribution department. While DSS systems are mainly designed with managers in mind, they also help other employees by reducing the workload, and lightening paperwork. But it can be harmful to the workforce because forecast trends could result in cutting back workloads if production has to slow down. However, it could be a win for the company as fewer hours worked is equivalent to fewer hours paid and may be regarded as a profit.
