Practical Problems in Connection with the Planning and Introduction of Information Systems. Technical Report.
Major reforms brought about in July 1969 at the Free University of Berlin in its organization, planning, and decision making are reviewed. Specific problems are addressed, such as plans for introducing an information system on technical data and space use, plans for an information system on personnel employed by the university, and plans for an information system on students in connection with a new student registration procedure. The utilization of capacity models in these areas is discussed. It is concluded that universities will more often have to be measured in terms of objectives and the degree to which they are met. The size of groups, teaching techniques, rules concerning teaching obligations, proportions of time spent in different activities, area ratio factors, etc. must be considered. There is also the problem of deviations from normal practices of study and the popularity of different establishments, which is difficult to define statistically. (LBH)
