Decision Support System for Assessment of Enterprise Competence

  • Jan Andreasik
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 57)


The paper includes description of the main elements of a decision support system (DSS) for positioning enterprises according to assessment of their competences. An enterprise model created according to original conception of defining features is presented. In the author’s conception, it is assumed that the enterprise competence system is the object which is assessed. The system is assessed from two points of view: assessment of competence potential and assessment of competence gap. A procedure of making assessment in the ranges determined by the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method is depicted. A procedure of explanation of the enterprise position based on an adaptation of the EUCLID and ELECTRE TRI methods is given. Results of research on the SME sector in south-east Poland are presented. These results lead to distinguishing four classes of assessment of enterprise positions.
