A Management Information System (MIS) is a decision-making methodology that provides an orchestration of organizational control and analyses that involve processes, people, and technology.
A management information system objective is to increase the profit and value of businesses. An effective MIS system should provide timely information to managers throughout an organization.
An Enhanced Management Information System: Benefits and Deliverables
Organizations benefit when they incorporate an enhanced management information system that provides more than the traditional MIS objectives, as stated in Wikipedia .
An Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) management information system addresses this need by providing the following additional items through IEE Enterprise Performance Reporting System (EPRS) software:
- Organizational scorecards that lead to the best behavior from a process-output point of view so that games are not played with the numbers, and there is no firefighting common-cause process-response variability as though it were special-cause. IEE 30,000-foot-level process-output response reporting can be automatically updated (e.g., daily) throughout an organization.
- Organizational-functional-performance-metric reporting that provides for a stable-process-output response a predictive statement, where unsatisfactory futuristic statements ″pull″ for the implementation of process improvements so that predictive statements in the future are acceptable.
- Targeted strategic plans are determined from the blending of analytics with innovation so that the enterprise financials will improve.
- Information is available and updated frequently (e.g., daily) so that not only managers but all authorized have access to process-output performance metrics that are aligned to the processes that created them throughout the organization. Through IEE EPRS software, personnel from operations level to a CEO can have this access, 24×7.
- An information management system that centralizes information so there is no duplication in different places or formats, which can lead to inconsistent versions of documents accessible by people. These inconsistencies can lead to differing conclusion and work executions.
- Ready access to the performance metrics of all function and their needs in an organization; e.g., operations, marketing, sales, accounting, maintenance, safety, voice of the customer (VOC), supply-chain, legal, human relations (HR), and research and development (R&D).
- Organizational transparency of both processes and metrics throughout an organization for all those who have authorization. This transparency will dispel the fear of ″shooting the messenger″ when someone or a function uncovers something that is undesirable in the lower ranks of an organization.
- The analytical identification of process improvement efforts that will enhance KPI metric responses that are reported from a process-output point of view (i.e., IEE 30,000-foot-level metric reporting) so the whole-enterprise financials benefit. A summary of an organization’s process improvement efforts is summarized in its IEE Enterprise Improvement Plan (EIP).
- A summary of process improvement efforts and the organizational 30,000-foot-level metrics that are to be improved through these efforts are available through its EPRS software where there can be access by all authorized 24×7. In an IEE deployment, there is an owner of each organization’s 30,000-foot-level metric that is to be improved. This owner will be asking or demanding a timely completion of the process improvement effort by the process-improvement team because he/she will be reporting the status of their metric improvement efforts through the execution of their project(s) to their leadership either monthly or quarterly.
