Abstract

This paper draws attention to a shift in the relationship between the fields of Management Information Systems and Product Design due to new developments in the roles of corporate vision, mission and strategy; increased emphasis on brand and image in marketing and business success; the broadening conceptualisations of product and designer; the increased use of outsourcing and virtual organisations; and increased intra- and Inter- networking of computerised information systems. The paper concludes, inline with recent moves by major software developers such as SAP, IBM, PTC, Dassault Systemes and Fujitsu-Seimens, that Management Information Systems is conceptually best regarded as a sub-field of a extended discipline of Product Design.
