Abstract

Model management is an important research topic in the Decision Support Systems. Current research focuses on methods and theories to improve shareability, and effective utilization of decision models in an organization. This paper presents a Web services approach to the representation and design of model base in organizational model management. Ontology is used for the model base design, and "decision ontology" is proposed for model management. XML is used for the exchangeable representation of decision ontology. The proposed methods and theories are used in the construction of a DSS for R&D project selection at the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). The proposed approach makes use of the Web services technologies, it allows the sharing and reuse of decision models in the Internet environment.
