ONLINE ANALITICAL PROCESSING(OLAP)
-enables managers and analyst to interactively examine and manipulate large amounts of detailed and consolidated data from many perspectives. OLAP involves basic analytical operations:

FIGURE 10.16 Four basic types of analytical modelling activities in using DSS Types of Analytical Modeling| Activities and Examples|
What- if analysis| Observing how changes to selected variables affect other variables.| Sensitivity analysis| Observing how repeated changes to a single affect variables| Goal-seeking analysis| Making repeated changes to selected variables until a chosen variable reaches a target value.| Optimization analysis| Finding an optimum value for selected variables given certain constraints.|...
