CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION
1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Management information system was introduced in Nigerian firms in order to enhance productivity. And for management information system to be effected in any organisation, effective communication process must be adhered to, appropriate equipment used and information processed is chanelled to relevant destination in time.
In Enugu Urban today, most manufacturing industries have introduced management information system in the operation of their various firms. Some of these manufacturing industries are PRODA, ALUMACO, ANAMCO, NBL, COCA-COLA and EMENITE Company limited. Among all more emphasis is laid an Emenite company limited.
Emenite Company limited is one of the lead manufacturing companies in Enugu Urban Enugu state. Emenite company limited is a member of Etex group that was incorporated in 1961 as Tubers Asbestos Cement (TAC) Nigeria limited. The company commenced production in 196. The product line as at 196 was mainly flat sheet and pressure pipes and later expanded to include corrugated roofing in 1975.
Emenite company limited has 5) five major department namely, personnel administrative, finance, commercial, Engineering and production department. Five senior managers who report to the managing director who approves all the activities going on in the company head these departments. There are three minor departments that report directly to the managing director. These departments includes supply, health and safety and quality control departments. They are also headed by junior managers respectively. There are also subsetime under the major department where the officers report to the senior managers. Since its incorporation in 1961. The company has gained a wealth of expenses  though constant product research adhere to international standard specification and more through total consumer satisfaction by promoting the development of Nigeria and the introduction of other quality roofing materials and improve it’s services.
With the assistance of it’s European partner the region eternity group through REDIO was latter changed to Enterx Group in 1995. The company is well able to meet the requirements of the grouping market through a continuing programme of qualitative improvements, strict quality controls and emphasis on customer satisfaction. The company looks forward to being of service to any increasing number of citizens in the years ahead.
MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (MIS)
Management information system was introduced in Nigeria firms in order to enhance productivity. For management information system to be effected in any organisation, effective communication process must be adhered to, appropriate equipment used and information processed is channelled to its relevant destination in time.
Emenite Company limited introduced the office information system because they discovered that there is low productivity of output in their organisation. In order for the company to attain the output level set as a target, management information system was introduced. In most cases their output is below their target due to:-
(i)    Capacity under utilization:- In most firms, some machines are either outdated or worn out due to poor refur bihsing syndrome.
(ii)    Communication gap:- Without up to the minute and accurate information most firms would make mistakes that could deter the productivity and progress of their establishment. Information flow from top to bottom in some firms is not sound because of communication gap, consequently, productivity is low.
The concept of management information system was introduced to bring a lasting solution to this problem of low productivity in our firms. Because of these short-comings, the researcher was compelled to investigate use of management information system in manufacturing industries as it related to enhancing productivity of secretaries in an organisation. The essence of information in any manufacturing industry can never be over emphasized, since this information is essentially tailored to management needs and wants.
Sometimes these information system usually computerized are designed to provide management of such organization or firm with major information needed for managerial decision making. Computers application in this process of management information system is not a key condition for effective information flows. Management information system should be supportive to executive usage and cross organizational lines, either from up to down or vise versa.
However, an information system might be too costly and difficult to use where an organisation or firm as a solution, common data-base is used wherever, possible for each functional group or area with firms having separate models or sub system.
Moreover, management information system in Nigerian manufacturing industries is mostly accounting information but in real terms, it should reflect both financial and non-financial data. The non-financial data should include information about personnel manufacturing, marketing and the environment like socio-political information.
    Management information system enables management and firms to obtain adequate information about output levels, capacity utilization, productivity and product possibility frontier where the factors of production are combined. This is accomplished in the planning process which has to do with setting of objectives and targets given the present budgets; evaluating the alternative ways of accomplishing the targets.
    Because of the above mentioned concept which management information system is aimed at the writer has therefore chosen to make an investigation research on the impact of management information system on the productivity of secretaries in an organisation.
1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Most managers, infact are not aware of those problems in some selected organizations, hence, they fall victims of this circumstances. Few of them who are aware, and who have used this standard extensively excel in business but where management information system is not properly use, productivity will be very low.
    In-spite of these therefore, the impact of management information system in establishments have not been without problems such as
1.    Most establishments have no clearly defined information system.
2.    Most firms are reluctant to adopt information as a company resort.
