Abstract : Many firms employ automated information processing systems as an aid to managerial decision making. Few information systems, however, fully achieve their intended goal. To improve the probability of creating an effective management information system, designers must first identify the relevant processes that require information support. To meet this need a decision-oriented approach to information requirements analysis is presented. Then the analytic framework is illustrated through a case study of an information system that is being developed within the Department of Defense. (Author)
