Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing
This book consists of selected papers presented in the framework of the 15th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2016), held in Prague, Czech Republic, September 15-16, 2016. The BIR conference
series was established 15 years ago as the initiative of some German and Swedish universities with the aim of supporting the global forum for researchers in business informatics for their collaboration and exchange of results.
The article is related to the problem of decision support in dynamic business contexts where conditions, values and goals frequently change over time, and users should participate continuously in problem definition. In our re-search we explore an opportunity to organize and simplify decision support dur-ing complex resource allocation processes by combining domain specific lan-guages (DSL) and distributed constraint satisfaction techniques (DCSP).We de-scribe a particular domain-specific language and the corresponding semantic model in terms of a newly proposed DSL&DCSP framework. Applicability of the framework is demonstrated using a real-life example of resource allocation process in the railway transportation.
