Management Information System. The functional part of a JDF/XJDF workflow that oversees all processes and communication between system components and system control.

In JDF, this is used as an umbrella term that may include workflow, production management and pressroom management systems, as well as print MIS systems, and should not be confused with the broader usage of MIS or Management Information Systems. The JDF/XJDF usage of "MIS" does NOT require management reporting, financial systems, accounting, or other functions implied by the broader general usage of MIS.
