5. CONCLUSION
This paper has illustrated how GIS can be integrated with
SMART models to develop an operational SDSS for business
decision-making. It should be noted, however, that because of
confidentiality considerations, no information about the financial
status of branch banks is included in the analysis. This
notwithstanding, it is demonstrated that the SDSS could be used
to generate alternative strategies based on spatial and
demographic analysis before implementing a final decision as
well as exploring whether other factors should be considered in
deciding whether or not a branch should be closed. The system
combines the functions such as a visual user interface, flexible
weighting mechanisms, sensitivity analysis and contribution
analysis capabilities to help decision makers effectively
formulate, validate and communicate complex decisions.
Further development and testing of the system is required to
fully demonstrate the usefulness of the SDSS for planning future
branch networks. In particular, additional research needs to be
undertaken to explore further the different criteria and their
weights in calculating decision scores, and to better understand
