A Generalized Management Information System for Computer Facilities at Educational Institutions.
Bowman, Patrick Awalt
The problem of managing computer facilities at educational institutions is examined. User categories are defined, and the interrelations between user requirements and the goals/objectives of the facility are discussed. Enumerations of the factors that influence computer facility operations is also accomplished. In addition, management information system theory is applied to the educational computer facility problem, and a proposed generalized management information system is developed. The overall operation of the MIS is explained, and each component of the system is described. Future development, installation, and validation procedures are discussed. (Author)
