The Special Issue entitled “Decision Making in Resources Management: Problems, Methods and Tools”, dedicated to the 17th edition of ICABE conference, focuses on the broad topic of decision-making concerning resources management in various aspects—theoretical, methodological, practical, ecological, and legal.
Resource management involves allocating resources according to the needs, aspirations, and desires of people within the framework of society’s technological inventiveness, political and social institutions, and legal and administrative arrangements regarding broad living and the working environment. This process is a conscious procedure, involving judgment, preference, commitment, and sustainability, whereby desired outputs are sought from a limited set of perceived resource combinations through various managerial, technical, and administrative alternatives. Such resources may include financial resources, inventories, human skills, production resources, information technology (IT), managerial capabilities, and natural resources. Therefore, resource management decisions are part of a complex, multi-faceted process offering wide possibilities for scientific investigation, challenges, and innovations.
We invite everyone interested in the above subjects to submit high-quality research articles covering the wide range of topics, as described above, related to theoretical aspects of decision-making in resource management and practical problems that arise at various levels (case studies).
Topics of interest for this Special Issue are connected with the use in supporting the process of decision making in resource management and data acquisition for decision making purposes, including (but not be restricted to) such methods and tools as multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA), operational research methods, multidimensional comparative analysis (MCA), modeling and computer simulation, artificial intelligence, econometric and statistical methods, neuroscience techniques, focus group interview (FGI), individual in-depth interviews (IDI), data text mining, IT tools, decision support systems, computer games, virtual reality, and other methods and tools.
