The report discusses the effectiveness of computer-based information systems as dependent upon many factors. The investigators in the MIS study addressed two major questions--1 What are the most critical factors contributing to the successful development of an information system and 2 can the factors be measured so that a models can be developed to predict the success or failure of a particular information system effort. Data were collected through interviews with systems and management personnel in various industries and governmental agencies, through use of questionnaires, and through a search of the literature. Study efforts resulted in the development of a general purpose goal programming model in the interactive computer mode.
