This paper presents and exemplifies a combination of techniques for deriving and modelling decision-maker and/or stakeholder preferences using a decision conference process. The applied techniques are used for the development of customised decision support systems (C-DSS) which can be used for appraisals of large transport infrastructure projects. The paper exemplifies how the process at a decision conference can be effectively supported by a DSS customised using appropriate techniques for the specific task in hand. In this respect a conventional cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is combined with a multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) featuring the REMBRANDT and the swing weights techniques. The approach is presented based on a case study, which concerns the interaction between stakeholders and decision-makers at a decision conference which was set up for the appraisal of proposals for the alignment of a high-speed railway line in Sweden.
