  • Florin Gheorghe Filip The Romanian Academy: BAR and INCE, and the Nat. Inst. for R&D in Informatics -ICI, Bucharest, Romania


This paper aims at highlighting several aspects and associated decision situations which may be met in the process of designing and building modern information systems, such as: choosing the approach and methods to be utilized for building the system and selecting the IT tools, integrating the system into the enterprise and evaluating the project. A particular emphasis is put on evaluation criteria to be utilized in solving the various decision problems.
