Abstract: In the 'Triple Brain' approach ('3-Hirn' in German) one
human and two computers with different programs are involved.
Both programs are started and present one solution each.
The human is a controller. He inspects the computer
solutions and selects one of them. The human is not allowed
to outvote the machines.
'Triple Brain' is a 'Decision Support System with Multiple
Choice Structure': Computer programs (one or several)
provide a handful of interesting candidate solutions, and
a controller (typically a human) has the final choice among
these candidates. This article exhibits and discusses
various aspects of Decision Support Systems with Multiple
