Abstract : The design of management information systems is concerned with the identification and detailed specification of the information and data processing resources required by an organization for decision-making and control. This paper surveys a representative selection of the literature on management information systems in which mathematical models are employed as the basis for analysis and systems design. Operations research provides a natural framework for the specification of management decision-making and control processes in information system designs. To realize the full economic potential of advanced data processing techniques in management information systems today, the close coordination of operations research and data systems activities has become a practical necessity for the modern business firm.
