The characteristics of IPS² pose new challenges to top managers in IPS² enterprises. However; current commercial EIM systems mostly focus on finance and business operations. In this paper introduced is a new approach to Executive Information Management (EIM); based on an IPS² Lifecycle Management (LM) system. It offers top managers an integrated IT environment about offered IPS²; and thus has the potential to enhance their work. The approach; the IT architecture; and the meta-information model for IPS² lifecycle management are explained in detail.
