A Case-Based Reasoning Approach for Evaluating and Selecting Human Resource Management Information Systems Projects

This paper presents a case-based reasoning (CBR) approach for evaluating and selecting human resource management information systems (IS) projects in an organization. The concept on case-based distance is introduced for measuring the degree of similarity between each case in the case base and the new case. To avoid the inconsistency of the decision maker’s subjective assessment, an induction technique is applied to help assign the importance of the criteria in the similarity measure. A human resource management IS project evaluation and selection problem is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
