Primer for GMIS : General Management Information System

By John J. Donovan


GMIS (Generalized Management Information System) is a set of tools for building information systems. These tools include a flexible data management capability, various modeling and analytical capabilities. Facilities for on line queries and execution as well as facilities for multi- user access to a data base. These tools have been applied to produce a facility (NEEMIS, New England Energy Management Information System) for energy planning and analysis within New England. This manual's purpose is to be a primer for using GMIS and the NEEMIS facility. For motivation and overview of the research involved in GMIS, see "GATIS - An Experimental System for Data Management and Analysis", by J. Donovan and H. Jacoby. For a complete description of the facility, see GMIS User's Guide.Prepared in association with the Sloan School of Management.New England Regional Commission Contract no. 10530680, the MIT/IBM Joint Study, and MIT internal fund
