Quality of data model for supporting mobile decision making

This paper describes research investigating ways in which a mobile decision support system might be implemented. Our view is that the mobile decision maker will be better supported if he/she is aware of the Quality of the Data (QoD) used in deriving the decision, and how QoD improves or deteriorates while he/she is on the move. We propose a QoD model that takes into account static and dynamic properties of the mobile decision making environment, use multicriteria decision analysis to represent the user’s decision model and to derive a single QoD parameter, and investigate use of powerful graphics to relay information to the user.
