BIS 202 and senior standing.

Course Description

This course covers decision support systems and expert systems in roughly equal measure. Issues that integrate the two fields, such as executive information systems, are addressed briefly. This is a hands-on course primarily using spreadsheets as examples of DSS and expert systems generators when addressing ES. Students develop a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of the role of each class of system as well as an understanding of the limitations of technology.
