CHAPTER ONE 1.0 INTRODUCTION Kibuli Supermarket is a Supermarket which manages sales, products, stock and information about the buying and supply of commodities. The manual system of data entry, updates and storage of data of riddled with problems. As a way of solving the above problems a computerized system has been introduced where there will be easy accessibility of data, reliability, and security which makes decision making and administrative activities simplified even with fewer employees. 1.1 Back ground of the Study A Management Information System is a formal method of making available to management the accurate and timely information necessary to facilitate the decision making process and enable the organization’s planning, control and operational functions to be carried out efficiently and effectively (Laudon, 2000) ~l5j. Management Information Systems forecast trends, support routine decisions, provide answers to queries thus making the business strategies of Supermarkets come to fruition in an efficient manner. However, as always; Management Information Systems are difficult to maintain and costly to construct (Turban, 2002) [03). A Supermarket is a food store that carry a wide selection of edibles and non edible products, the concept was started in United states in the 1930’s although the large Supermarket is a fixture in the united states; it has not caught on to a large extent in other parts of the world and it must be remembered that a wide variety is less important than quality and local ambiance. They deal in the buying and selling of commodities. Supermarkets have become famous for retailing of various commodities including building materials, office products and of course groceries through self service at low prices and support of national development through tax payment and providing employment to citizens (Michael, 2001) [02]
