2009 (English)In: 23rd European Conference on Operational Research, Bonn, 2009, 193-193 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we will present in detail the structure and work process of EthXpert - a computer system for supporting ethical decision making. Through examples, we will show how the tool can be used to reach a better-structured and more holistic overview of moral problems. Based on case studies with students, we will also discuss the level of experience in handling ethical problems that is required to make proper use of the system in real-life decision-making. Finally we will suggest how the resulting documentation of ethical implications can serve as justifcation for decision-making.
