How might an automobile company use a management information system to reduce its costs and better serve its customers? Explain the various types of input data the system might use, and describe what types of output reports managers would find useful.


Wow. Masters Thesis' are written on just elements of this.

THe idea of MIS is to control costs, schedules, and quality issues. So you can design any report to address any subelement of those three. Personally, I like to focus on schedules and quality: if those two are going well, generally costs are under control.
