Parent Child Center Management Information System. System Documentation: Vol. II, MIS Data by Management Information Requirement.
Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
The basic objectives of this volume are to present a detailed overview of the system document flow, display the relationship of individual output reports to particular key management decisions, trace the input document data elements required to meet the information requirements of six key management decisions, and trace the data document element flow from the weekly Parent Child Center (PCC) records to the Quarterly Input Reports. Flowcharts are used to display the input-output relationship of each document, the person constituting the information source, and the users of the reports. Three levels of decisionmaking are identified relating to each of the six key management decisions, and performance indicators for specific contributing decisions are related to particular data elements in the records and reports. Input documents are specified in which various key data elements appear, and finally each data element is traced as it appears on each input document. (Author/WM)
