Abstract—DSS is a special type of IS and the theory of DSS have been evolved since the inception of the field and shaped into many diverse directions. As DSS has more specific nature (its core concept) than any other system we need a suitable Software Development Methodology that copes with the significant characteristics of such kinds of systems. We believe that Agile Methodology are the most suitable for DSS, despite this there were significant limitations for both Agile Methodologies and DSS Development Methodologies In this paper we will preview DSS Development Methodologies, compare between software development methodologies both agile and traditional according to their suitability for building DSS, and propose a new software development methodology.
Index Terms—DSS, software development methodology, agile software development, knowledge management.
