Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to develop a uniform systematic approach to the design and implementation of a management information system. In recent years there has been published reams of literature about various aspects of management information systems, and, some specific design considerations of these systems. However, nowhere during the course of this authors research could there be found a comprehensive guide or instructive document directed towards the design of a management information system. To this end - the creaction of such a document - is this paper dedicated. The procedures developed in this paper are, as most similar procedures in general, designed to guide the manager and analyst through all phases from initial inception to successful implementation of a management information system. Many factors must be considered while applying this procedure, e.g., complexity and scope of the information system. These factors are discussed throughout this paper in terms of their impact on each phase of the design process.
