TACTICAL MANAGEMENT IN POT PLANT PRODUCTION; WHICH KIND OF DECISION SUPPORT IS MOST SUITABLE?
This article is based on a literature review on decision support, especially for tactical management in pot plant production. It is argued that there are two distinguished views on decision support. The first emphasizes the role of the organisation, whereas the second is information-oriented. Both views can be worthwhile in supporting tactical management because they deal with different sources of difficulty in the decision-making process, being complexity, uncertainty, multiple objectives and different perspectives (Clemen (1991). The information-oriented view is mainly concerned with decreasing uncertainty and to some extent with multiple objectives, while complexity and different perspectives can be dealt with from an organization-oriented viewpoint. One of the questions for further research is: can these two views on decision support be combined?
