UCD’s CBA (previously known as the Centre for Management Science and Systems) incorporates a cross-section of disciplines associated with Management Science, Operations Research, Systems Science and Decision Support Systems. Our main aim is to facilitate the development of, and provide ongoing support for, an internationally recognised, UCD-based community of researchers whose work focuses on:Decision-Making: its Structures, Modelling, and Realisation in Practice. The CBA aims to lead research in management science, decision science, decision support systems and systems science in Ireland.
The emphasis is on the practical application of technical approaches to solving problems in business, and on developing methods for management decision making. This involves a combination of decision science, modelling, algorithm development, software writing and testing, and applications of ICT (Information Communication Technologies).
Specific topics of interest include multi-criteria decision-making, decision methodologies and processes, Decision Support Systems, Geographic Information Systems, quantitative modelling for Logistics, and Technology Management. Business applications of CBA research cover a wide range from technical problems to inter-cultural differences in decision approaches. In general, the CBA will give a context for providing solutions that combine systems, mathematics and applied computer science, and for determining their appropriate usage.
