Abstract : The paper reports on a study designed to (1) analyze the reasons for the lack of the use of such models by practitioners; (2) attempt a comparison and reconciliation of the formal models for project selection that are in the literature; (3) conduct real-time comparisons of decisions made with the aid of analytical (typically mathematical) models versus those made by currently employed (typically non-mathematical) methods; and, (4) develop a conceptual design for a real-time information system for project selection and review.
