Today, computers are widely used in all industries for data collection and analysis, interpretation of data and decision making processes. Especially Decision Support Systems, which are computer-based Information Systems providing tools for assisting managers in making semi-structured decisions, have gained stronger ground parallel to the latest developments in information technologies including artificial intelligence applications like fuzzy logic, machine learning, natural language processing, etc. There are on-going efforts to produce effective models, frameworks, and algorithms for decision making processes. However, construction industry has an intense volume of semi-structured or unstructured knowledge, and knowledge is mostly transferred as experiences from one project to another. This paper aims to find out how decisions are made in practice and how effective Decision Support Systems are in the construction industry.
