dc.description.abstract This study has presented a Planning Support System (PSS) design which is an integrated collection of computer technologies, and models, organized in the form of a toolbox to enhance and improve the planning practice. Such a system combines and facilitates different technologies in one well-designed environment to solve planning problems. Theses problems could address both routine (managerial) and non-routine (forecasting, location-allocation) activities.My goal in this thesis is to conceptually design a PSS from a regional planning perspective. If a Planning Support System is designed for the most complex planning problems (which typically concern regional planning issues), it would be adaptable to the other, more managerial types of activities.The process of Planning Support System would be similar, but not identical to the flow of strategic planning. The PSS would consist of five phases and each phase would include different combination of databases and workflows supported by recent and appropriate computer technology packages.
