    You're right - they do need to actually produce the information. If you look at the assessment guidance in the unit spec, this clarifies that they need to produce a report (or similar) and that the criteria directly ties in with P7 (and P6 and D2). We're planning on covering it in our Unit 42 (Spreadsheet Modelling) work - for this, our students already produce pivot tables and graphs of the sales for their fictitious company, and these could count as management information.You can cover P6 and D2 by getting them to choose which information is relevant for a particular user MIS need (like forecasting sales for the next few months), and then cover P7 and M3by the actual production of the information in a suitable format.
    It could also be done as a database, maybe by giving a database with sample information in and then getting them to create an appropriate query and report.
    HTH.
