Overview

In an integrated manufacturing environment, precision in scheduling, inventory levels, and marketing data is more important than ever. Manufacturers depend on smoothly functioning information systems to capture, process, and distribute the information that is necessary to guide the parts of often far-flung operations. Managing Information provides a detailed description of the underlying technologies associated with information systems, including the roles and capabilities of hardware, software, databases, and communication technology. Using numerous charts and illustrations, MIS experts Gordon Davis and Scott Hamilton show you how information systems affect the performance of a wide range of key job functions. You'll also find practical measures your company can take to improve the efficiency of information flow while keeping costs manageable. Managing Information provides a plan for evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your current business structure, so you can pinpoint and fulfill your company's unique information requirements; helps you understand the technical aspects and strategic goals of manufacturing information systems - and manage them successfully; clearly demonstrates how to implement a workable information system in an integrated manufacturing environment; and offers valuable insights into why MIS has grown in importance and what is in store for the future. As information technology continues to advance, manufacturing professionals will face new challenges and a wide range of alternatives. Managing Information will help you recognize and select appropriate alternatives for your organization, then integrate them into current functions to make them more effective.
