Management information services, now an accepted railroad function, have frequently become autonomous and moved from their original role as an adjunct of the accounting operation. The rate of change in computer hardware development has produced data system capabilities that far outstrip requirements; in the future mini and microsystems will increase so that larger systems are freed to become host processors. Their ability to provide information to support decision-making is now accepted. The ability of MIS staffs to fulfill their roles is discussed, along with the ways their users can better utilize new computer-system capabilities.
