Management Reporting: An Application for Computer Graphics.
Kenepp, Paul L.
With increasingly large quantities of management-oriented information being produced for decision-making, administrators are finding that they have insufficient time to adequately review and digest its meaning. This paper discusses the development of a computerized graphics system that will permit nearly all types of management information to be displayed in graphic form. Graphic information is more understandable and helps take the drudgery out of the information review process. This paper discusses the motive and approach for systems development along with specific applications for higher education institutions. Illustrations of computer displays are included. (Author/DAG)
