Abstract:THE spate of technical publications which management is urged increasingly to read, contain references to Management Information Systems or, equally, Total Information Systems, and this fairly new terminology is becoming the “in phrase” of the moment. The attraction of this total approach is considerable. Any business, whatever the nature of the products or services it offers, can be considered as an information machine, and as management spends much of its time making decisions with inadequate information the idea of having access to complete management information sounds a few stages removed from paradise.
