This paper presents an approach to the design and construction of an innovative decision support system to help the top management of multi plants companies to take the optimum decision in case of power limitation to choose which plant or plants will be stopped with minimum losses. A case study is also presented for a steel company, it contains a technical study for applying the DSS concepts. This case study can be considered as a model for any multi plants company either in steel industries or else, which faces the same problem and needs a DSS to take the optimum decision. It describes the system in terms of the nature of the decision problem, discusses factors which affect the problem and considers the design goals.
