An Example of the Application of Generalized Information Systems Concepts to the Quantification of Information in a Decision System: The Examination of Quantified Information Flow in an Industrial Control Problem.
This research study is based on an application of concepts derived from the Yovits-Ernst Model for a generalized information system. These concepts and their implications are applied to a management decision model for a hypothetical production control problem. The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate that the theory of the Yovits-Ernst Model can provide a valid analytical base from which a precise quantification of the flow of information through a decision system can be achieved. An additional goal is to formulate and to investigate some of the overall implications that may result from such a quantification. (Author)
