Group decision support system for facilities planning

Abstract: Institutions, both public and private, are restructuring due to major global changes: some of which include the unification of Europe, introduction of fiee enterprise in the Eastern European countries, and the major trade deficits of the United States. Given constrained finding available for building investments in a climate of major change in organizational goals, decision makers need improved planning tools for choosing optimal facility investments, just as for other investment decisions, This paper describes a facilities planning and prioritization system developed at the Army Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) which assists in selection and provides project information on costs and multiple attributes for describing requirements. The system provides multi-level prioritization information for use by decision groups within the organization hierarchy. In addition, proposed enhancements to this system include group decision information handling for realigning projects to the evolving goals of the organization.
