INCEPTION, DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM.
LEWIS, DAVID ALFRED
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO DEVELOP AN INSTRUCTIONAL AND SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM. GOALS, OBJECTIVES, STRUCTURE, AND RESPONSIBILITIES FORM THE FRAMEWORK OF A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM. THE TASK OF A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM IS TO PROCESS RAW DATA IN SUCH A WAY AS TO GENERATE THE INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR MANAGEMENT USE. THE SYSTEM IS COMPOSED OF FIVE INTEGRATED SUBSYSTEMS--INFORMATION, PERSONNEL, COMMUNICATIONS, HARDWARE, AND SOFTWARE. THE FOUR BASIC GOALS OF THIS SYSTEM INCLUDE--(1) TIMELY, ACCURATE DELIVERY OF INFORMATION WHEN AND WHERE NEEDED, (2) FILTERED DISTRIBUTION OF INFORMATION, (3) READY ASSEMBLAGE OF INFORMATION FOR SPECIAL REPORTS, AND (4) EXECUTION OF FEASIBLE CONTROLS THROUGH INTERNAL SYSTEM LOGIC. AN OVERVIEW OF DESIGN IN TERMS OF SYSTEMS INTEGRATION AND AN ANALYSIS OF THE CONCEPT OF TOTAL MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS ARE MADE.
