Considers alternative types of computer models designed to assist decision makers on questions of site location. Relates to a larger scale research project which aims to examine the necessary requirements for computers to provide practical decision support. It involves comparing a wide range of modelling techniques, with a view to establishing their relative strengths and the conditions under which each would be the most appropriate choice. Discusses the range of modelling techniques available and provides a more detailed review of one particular model which combines a “conventional” approach, based on algebraic equations, with an expert systems approach.
