Traditionally decision support systems (DSS) are designed to help the users
make better decisions. However, the empirical evidence concerning the
impact of DSS on improved decision making and leaning in dynamic tasks is
equivocal at best. In this article, we introduce a new type of DSS based
system dynamics technology as tool not only to support users’ decision
making and leaning but can also provide an effective assessment of the
performance and learning as well.
