It is usual that an MIS (management information system) is categorized by the three levels, TPS (transaction processing system), MIS in a narrow sense and DSS (decision support system). A TPS of the first level constitutes the infra-structure of an MIS, which handles transaction process of a business, and maintains a corporate DB (data base). This DB supplies basic information for the MIS.
