Programmed  Decision is applied to structured or routine problems. This decision is used for routine and repetitive work; it relies primarily on previously established criteria. It is, in effect, decision making by precedent.



            NonProgrammed Decision are used for unstructured, novel, and ill-defined situations of a nonrecurring nature.
