MetadataShow full item record
The increasing complexity of communications systems management is introduced and the framework for a solution to management problems is presented in the form of a management information system. The role and value of information in an organization are shown so as to highlight the benefits of a well designed information system. The mission and objectives of an information system are defined to serve as guidance for the managerial aspects of the design effort. A method is developed to analyze a system by identifying the general elements of information required by a manager around which a computer-based information system could be designed. This procedure is applied to the Marine Corps communications system, resulting in a detailed description of the functions of the communications manager. Further analysis determines the elements of information required to perform these functions.
