A comprehensive decision support system, GMCR II, is developed for the systematic study of real-world interactive decision problems. Model formulation is presented in Part I, and analysis and output interpretation in Part II. GMCR II is based upon existing and new research developments of the graph model for conflict resolution. In Part I, specially designed data structures and corresponding algorithms are implemented for generating and representing possible states, removing infeasible states, coalescing indistinguishable states, and specifying and storing allowable state transitions. Algorithms implementing different approaches to the elicitation of preferences over states enable GMCR II to construct and manage an efficient, flexible, and complete graph model of a strategic conflict.
