Learning Outcomes

It the first lesson for comprehending what is System, Information System and Management Information System. It also provides knowledge regarding organization and operation o business. The application of these concepts is examined with reference to established and well known categories of management information systems, which are: DSS, MIS, ESS, KWS, OAS, TPS, ERP, SCM, CRM, HRM).

We also briefly examine the software analysis and design methodologies, as the basic blocks for composition, revision and protraction of management information systems. Among the analysis steps, we give attention on how to record the results of the requirement analysis. This is crucial because we examine well established management information systems and need to define clearly their common ground.

For a standardized recording of the requirements of MIS, students are trained to compose Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) and also to compose and understand Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs). Specific case studies are used to improve and assess their comprehension and skills acquired. We focus on systems like “General accounts”, “Customer and Supplier management”, “Fixed Assets management”. We also examine “Electronic Prescription”, “Payroll” and “Commitment, Invoice and Payment management”.

Students with successful participation will be able to:

  • Understand analysis and design of management information systems
  • Collect and classify information of organizations, towards the duty to compose a feasibility analysis report for a management information system.
  • Detect and declare the functional and non-functional requirements
  • Model the aspects of a system (structure, behavior, interaction, states, integrity constraints, architecture, etc)
  • Design the architecture of an Information system, using structured analysis techniques (Data Flow Diagrams and Entity Relationship Diagrams)
  • Design the database conceptual schema and also the interface of an information system
  • Service as a project manager for every scale of information systems
