Abstract: The idea to build a Group Decision Support System (GDSS) to support the decision makers at all the hierarchic levels in an organization to take the decisions efficiently and just in time appeared in the ’70. The main advantage of using a GDSS proved to be, over the years, a better understanding of the decision process through the involvement of all the decision makers in all the phases of the decisional issue from statement to solving and interpretation. With time, GDSS turned the collaboration activities into a competitive advantage for all the actors involved: public administration, academic environment and enterprises, contributing to a higher competitiveness in a time when the cooperation between the various organizations and the self-administration plays a key role in a global economy. In this paper, 3 GDSS’s developed in research projects and implemented in LBUS (Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu) and other industrial companies are presented and analysed; we come also with recommendations on developing further GDSS for different needs.

Keywords: GDSS, e-platforms, e-learning.
