  1. For each system/application in the mini-cases, discuss whether its description suggests features/functionalities from one or more of the following categories of information systems covered in chapter 2,9,11 and 12 of the test – TPS, DSS, ESS, ERP, SCM, KMS, collaboration, GIS, and GDSS. Some of these categories have multiple sub-categories, so be sure to identify any applicable sub-categories in your answer. (As a hypothetical example, one particular system in a mini-case may appear to primarily be a decision support system targeted at mid-level managers in sales and marketing. Your answer will need more elaboration and discussion, of course).
  1. In which stage (or stages) of decision making does each system best assist its respective user community – intelligence stage, choice stage, and /or implementation stage? Discuss and justify your answer.
  1. As implemented, each systems is probably interconnected/linked to other systems or applications in the organization. Although the mini-cases do not necessarily address the aspect, from your understanding of organizations, business processes, and systems describe some possible examples of such interconnections for each systems. Explain your reasoning while explicitly stating any assumptions.
