Hi there,
Welcome to the Machine Information Systems (MIS) web site.
Now I know Introductions are a good place to start!

However answer me this, how would you like to be sitting at your desk in your cosy office and be able to see whats going with all the workshop floor production equipment? Wouldn't that be good?


Here, a Management Information Systems (MIS) machine shop projects is taken seriously and with a passion. Not forgetting an unfailing attention to detail.

If an MIS project is what you're looking into, you're in the right place!

My plain simple aim on this site is to give you reliable information about these systems.

The information given on this site is intended to be factual, waffle free, useful stuff. Now you see if it's not! (Check out this websites approved manufacturing links directory! now for direct and fast solution assistance)

Find out the nitty gritty details of:

When you're digging around in a panel like this, installing a new MIS, you're gonna want to know it's gonna work.
Don't you agree, yeah?

This is a tried and tested collection of sound information and methods on the good, the bad and the ugly, (MIS) information systems around.

The improvements and advantages that come from a matched specification MIS are unparalleled.

Or... Maybe you're just interested in how they work and what they can do?

Perhaps as a custom machine builder this is a machine shop project you would like to incorporate into your equipment from the design stage.

Whether you’re at the manager end, or the operator end, well-suited machine or management information systems can be a valuable addition to any factory or production environment. A badly matched MIS can be a pain in the bank balance.
(You'll notice that at pay rise time! They don't just benefit the Boss!)

We (you and me) will look into the advantages and disadvantages of cabled and wireless connection. Covering from simple information systems indicator layout to full blown wireless data logger system with time and attendance monitoring, on the journey through this site.

We won't miss out any hardware or software issues, or what sort of information you can or can't get out of 'em. We'll cover the cost and savings of such systems both initial and long term.

There's also an every growing FAQ page for quick answers to which thingy does what AND examples of signals and connection methods.

What more could you want?

OH. . . Please forgive me for blowing my own trumpet a bit. I have been instrumental in the design, construction, installation and commissioning of many machine shop projects and control systems, including many machine information systems, in industry for over 20 years.

Through this site, I can share my wealth of knowledge and experience,
with you.
