Abstract

A management information system (MIS) is one of the important systems to control materials and information harmoniously. The previous design approaches dealt with it qualitatively. Therefore, it was impossible to smooth the office works in the management system. In this paper, we design the MIS using a stochastic Petri net (SPN). First, we describe a typical MIS and explain the concept of SPN. Next, we construct the MIS as the SPN model and obtain the total expected sojourn time of documents in each section. Finally, we propose the design for the MIS with consideration for the smoothing of the office works.
