Abstract: With in-depth exploration of core issues and the development of information technology, process information has been receiving more and more attention in decision making researches in last 50 years. Process technologies mainly include Mouselab, Eye Track, and Decision Moving Window (DMW). Mouselab and Eye Track have been used in varieties of decision tasks to test prevailing decision-making theories. DMW is developed recently and combines the advantages of both Mouselab and Eye Tracking. Its scope of application needs to be extended in more researches. In future studies, the comprehensive use of different technologies will help avoid the defect of single technology, separate the impact of the research technology from people’s behavior and improve the validity of studies.

Key words: process model, mouselab, eye track, decision moving window
