Design of a management information system for a small manufacturing firm : a case study Hallat, Kenneth Bruce


This paper deals with the design of a management information system for a real world, small manufacturing firm. The major portion of the study was concerned with analyzing the case firm to initially gain an understanding of the system, evaluating the information needs, and then designing a system to provide management with information relevant to the decision making processes. It was concluded that designing an information system for a small firm was a highly creative process although the systems approach provided a good framework. The recommended system for the firm under study included both manual processing, (based on stratified sampling) to provide the regular information needed for operating and control decisions and electronic data processing to provide more detailed information for longer range policy and planning decisions.
