There is still too much irrelevancy and too long a time lag. (4) The interactive mode is frustrating. Present day query languages restrict the user. (5) On-line, real time often means off-line and/or down-time. BUT costs are declining on hardware and designs are getting better. Management Information Systems are integrating decisions at the operating levels of many manufacturing divisions of companies.

Managers are inclined toward intuition and action. They see the situation as a mosaic. Their value systems often outweigh facts where the whole picture 38 seems to justify it. Management Information Scientists dissect and analyse, are less action-oriented and averse to risk-taking. Management Information Scientists must think in terms of the manager's perceptions, needs, expectations and pressures. On the other hand Top Management should not isolate Management Information Scientists but give them line responsibility.

It facilitates transformation and effects transfer, between sender and receiver. The next level of technology, written and printed, extended and amplified this capability. This had to suffice and still does to a very large degree today. Concurrent with the development of the written and printed media came the development of a type of information system to fulfill the need for an external memory from which to retrieve on demand. This was called a Zibrary. Today because of electronic media and devices, Information Technology has become more complex and better organized; at the same time society has become more complex.
