Considering both the engineering complexity and social complexity in the complex production system Parallel Management System (PMS) provides us a promising approach for comprehensive and predictive management for it, however, the system architecture of the PMS need to be further established. In this paper, the concept of Parallel Management Information System (PMIS) based on the PMS methodology, its system architecture as well as its execution modes are investigated in detail with the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). Taking the complex ethylene production as an example, the system architecture of PMIS is divided into the collaborative layer, application layer, service layer, component layer and resource layer. The artificial ethylene systems in the PMS are designed in the service layer and component layer, and the computational experiments and parallel execution are arranged in the collaborative layer and application layer. With such architecture, the PMIS can provide the training, assessment and optimization service based such an open and flexible system.
