There is a great demand for pure water that is fit for human consumption. There is also a great demand for the industrial use of this essential source in plants in order to supply certain products to consumers. The industrial use of water is often associated with water pollution and the polluted water is often discharged into rivers and natural streams. The increasing demand for the chemical monitoring of water qualities therefore emphasizes the importance of an efficient and workable management system to remain profitable and competitive in a fast growing industry. The integrated laboratory information management system (ILIMS) is developed by the authors to increase productivity by integrating the documentation relevant to safety and environmental conservation, human resources, personnel training and development, and quality.
