Part of the Series on applied business logistics book series (SABL, volume 1)
Materials management and electronic data processing (EDP)
In Chapter 1, it is argued that the internal components of a company (objectives, elements, structure and technology) are interdependent and changes to one can affect and influence the others. Also covered in Chapter 1 is the possibility of viewing an organization as a collection of aspects. Of these aspects, the social aspect and the effect of organizational changes have been considered in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 is designed to give attention to yet another aspect, that of information. Briefly stated, as an organization undergoes continuous change, a well-used information system undergoes continuous development in terms of:
- further development (expansion);
- further integration;
- upgrading and maintenance;
- adjustments to new requirements;
- conversion to new hardware.
