A FIELD REPORT ON
MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS
Submitted by: Group 7
Management information Systems (MIS), sometimes referred to as Information Management and Systems, are the discipline covering the application of people, technologies, and procedures — collectively called information systems — to solving business problems. Management Information Systems are distinct from regular information systems in that they are used to analyze other information systems applied in operational activities in the organization. Academically, the term is commonly used to refer to the group of information management methods tied to the automation or support of human decision making, e.g. Decision Support Systems, Expert systems, and Executive information systems. The terms MIS and information system are often confused. Information systems include systems that are not intended for decision making. MIS is sometimes referred to, in a restrictive sense, as information technology management. That area of study should not be confused with computer science. IT service management is a practitioner-focused discipline. MIS has also some differences with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) as ERP incorporates elements that are not necessarily focused on decision support.
We are very grateful to our mentor, Prof Swaroop Mohanty and also to the Asst. General Manager of Godrej & Boyce Mfg.Co.Ltd, Mr Sudip Kumar Choudhury for guiding us in completing this field work report on Management Information System.
One of the largest privately held diversified industrial corporations in India, the company celebrated its centenary in 1997. In 1879 a young man named Ardeshir Godrej gave up law and turned to lock making. Ardeshir went on to make safes and security equipment of the highest orde, and then stunned the world by creating toilet soap from vegetable oil. His brother Pirojsha Godrej carried Ardeshir’s dream forward, leading Godrej towards becoming a vibrant, multi-business enterprise.
