dc.description.abstract Decision Support Systems (DSS) are designed to help the manager in modelling the decision process and assist in decision making by enabling sensitivity and other kinds of analyses with ease. The database and dialogue management components of DSS have received a great deal of attention in the past but a new awareness of models being stable, sharable, reusable corporate resources has focused interest on the model management component of DSS. Integrated Model Management Systems (IMMS) have been proposed as systems that could support the model management component of DSS. Decision making in the managerial context is often unstructured, ad hoc, and complex. It involves structuring and solving the problem, and interpreting the results. Design and implementation of a computer-based environment to support this activity is characterised by a modelling approach that enables the representation of the complexity of the problem, access to data and solvers, persistence of problem representation, and the ability to manipulate and integrate problem representations. IMMS represent an attempt at achieving such an environment. Lack of a general framework for conceptual modelling and constraints imposed by technology have, in the past, limited the design and implementation of IMMS. This research attempts to advance core knowledge in the Information Systems (IS)and Management Science/Operations Research (MS/OR) disciplines through the demonstration and testing of ideas and concepts that have been proposed in the area of MMS. It attempts to overcome key problems in IMMS design and implementation by proposing, implementing, and evaluating a modelling framework that uses Structured Modelling to describe models, object-oriented and relational constructs to represent models, and predicate calculus-based extended Structured Query Language (SQL) to manipulate models. en
