Information systems are often developed to introduce new technology or to overcome severe maintenance problems rather than to improve fundamental business practice. In today's manufacturing environment, any attempt to develop effective information systems must benefit the organization as a whole and reflect the strategic needs of the business. The goal is the development of systems that help produce constructive change in business operations to achieve a competitive edge. For most organizations, this means defining a strategy or plan for moving from their current position to the desired goal. Emphasizes the importance of effective information systems planning, details its requirements in today's manufacturing environment and outlines a planning methodology that helps identify and rank opportunities to develop information systems to meet business needs.
