summary:A decision support system (DSS) is defined as the combination of data, information, and computer- (and non-computer-) based tools and services working within a structured framework to improve the process and outcome of decision-making. In this special edition, researchers from around the world present their projects and findings related to the fundamentals, concepts and applications of DSS in infrastructure management. This special edition includes papers from a wide range of infrastructure disciplines; although the disciplines range from institutional buildings to urban planning, the common theme is how and when to optimize decision-making.
