Architecture of a decision-support system

Application of optimization in real life situations is often defeated by “real-life” issues that have nothing to do with the optimization algorithm, and more to do with how well (or how badly) the model being optimized fits reality. This is the second in the series of articles on optimization by “real life optimization guru” Dr. Narayan Venkatasubramanian. In the first article, he presented a case study and this article analyzes how a layered architecture to tackling this problem would have surfaced the problems much earlier and many of the surprises that caused them to swing wildly between jubilation and depression would have been avoided.
