In the past 2 years the Maryland Department of Transportation has developed a decision support system that provides financial advice to the Secretary of Transportation and to other policy-making officials within Maryland state government. The components and techniques used in developing this system are described. To place the system in perspective, there is a brief comparison of the process before implementation of the system with current practice. General guidelines are given to assist the reader in identifying issues and criteria for development of decision support systems. These criteria are general in nature and may be applied to a wide variety of situations, not just financial planning or transportationrelated analysis. Comments, conclusions, and specific hardware and software evaluations based on experience to date are offered.
