When making important decisions, most companies and organizations require the input of several individuals in order to generate new ideas and make judgments. However, when the complexities of a group decision problem exceed normal decision making approaches, a more formal collaborative process and decision support environment is required. The primary goal of this project is to develop a group decision support system (GDSS) recommendation for the aerospace corporation that allow users to generate ideas electronically, make quantitative judgments, and identify the group's preferred outcome(s) using robust decision analysis and facilitated group collaboration methods. This paper outlines the overall GDSS recommendation and supporting objectives that were met, including the completion of an industrywide software trade survey, a ''rate and weight" decision model of prospective software solutions, and an examination of group collaboration techniques and GDSS facility designs.
