use in different contexts However a system may be defined as a set of elements which are. joined together to achieve a common objective The elements are interrelated and. interdependent, The set of elements for a system may be understood us input process and output A. system has one are multiple inputs these inputs are processed through a transformation. process to convert these input into outputs The three elements of a system are. INPUT PROCESS OUTPUT, 2 What are the various functions of information systems. One of the mostly widely used bases for organising activities in almost every. organisation is the business function Business activities are grouped around functions. such as production marketing finance and personnel etc Resulting in the respective. department or an area of the business organisation These departments or functional areas. are commonly known as the functional areas of business.

In information system includes four major resources hardware software people. and data Let s briefly discuss some basic concepts and examples of how these resources. contributes to the information processing activities of information system.

systems The concepts of data resources have been broadened by. managers and information system professionals,4 List out the different types of information.

Business expert system BES is a knowledge based information system that uses its. knowledge about a specific complex application area to act as an expert This system is. one of the knowledge based information system, Expert system provides decision support to managers in the form of advice from an. expert in a specific problem area Expert systems find application in diverse areas. ranging from medical engineering and business,Knowledge base inference engine. user interface,2 Discuss about cost benefit analysis. Every legitimate solution will have some advantages is benefits and some. disadvantages or costs These advantages and disadvantages are identified when each. alternative solution is evaluated This process is typically called cost benefit analysis. Examples in sales or profits,in operating costs,in required investment. Selecting the best solution, Once all alternative solutions have been evaluated the process of selections the best.
solution can begin Alternative solutions can be compared to each other because they have. been evaluated using the same criteria It is possible that to decide to select the best solution. to the problem,Implementing a solution, Once a solution has been selected it must be implemented An implementation plan. may be developed An implementation plan specifies the activities resources and timing. needed for proper implementation,Post implementation review. The final step of the system approach recognized that an implemented solution can. fail to solve the problem for which it was developed The results of implementing a solution. should be monitored and evaluated This is called a post implementation review process.

Database that hold processed and organised data, Knowledge bases the hold knowledge in variety of forms such as facts. rules and case,Network resources, Telecommunications technologies and networks like the internet intranets and.
extranets The concept of network resources emphasizes that communications technologies. and networks are a fundamentals resource component of all information systems Network. resources include, Communications media is includes twisted pairs wire coaxial and fiber. optic cables and microwave cellular and satellite wireless technologies. Network infrastructure this generic category emphasizes that many. hardware software and data technologies are needed to support the. operation and use of a communication networks, 4 Write about the fundamentals and dimensions of information system.
