4.What kinds of management reports can be generated from the data from these systems? All data input into the baggage handling systems are recorded in transaction processing systems. From there, a variety of Management Information Systems (MIS), Decision Support Systems (DSS), and Executive Support Systems (ESS) reports can be generated. MIS reports may include information about the number of bags at any given time in any given place; how long it takes to move a bag from point A to any other point in the system; the number of bags processed through the baggage handling system that are outside the norms. Equipment management reports can be generated that provide information about the maintenance status of the various system components. DSS reports can be generated that advise managers when to perform maintenance on equipment or whether equipment should be moved to alternate locations based on baggage loads. These kinds of reports can also provide information to managers about whether the system is meeting its goals and how it can be improved. ESS reports can advise executives about cost factors and if the system is providing the targeted return on investment. Information about the efficiency of the system is also available to executives based on data generated by the baggage handling systems.
