A discussion of the steps involved in creating the information system for Laboratory Problem II, a large-scale manned simulation of ICBM tactical support. The Memorandum describes the issues faced in designing LP-II's information system, indicates how they were resolved, and suggests some generalizations that may have broader application. It is stressed that information systems should be designed in an integrated fashion to achieve more fully their potential contribution to overall management control.
