The focus in current decision management systems is on supporting selected decisions and transactional processes, rather than including decisions and information resulting from decisions and action processes over time. Thus, specific information is tailored to use specific DSS technology. The purpose of this research was to understand how decision information is organized in a complex, decision-rich organization. Documentation and archival records are the basis of this case study. An object-oriented framework with five key elements for linking decisions and information is introduced: issue, based-on, decision, agents, and consequence. It is suggested that an overall object-oriented approach would contribute to clarifying the decision context, the relationship to other decisions, and defining the roles and responsibilities of the decision and action team. Thus, the framework as a platfonn facilitates using different DSS technologies.
