    As the IEEE (nee IRE) Transactions on Engineering Management celebrates its 50th anniversary, we look back to see how the journal has progressed over the years... Begun as an outlet for the thoughts on management of IRE members primarily from industry, the Transactions soon became a recognized scholarly journal. At the same time, in the opinion of the authors, it has retained its relevance to prac... View full abstract»

    I observe that despite 50 years, the field of engineering management has not yet established itself with the stability and all-presence of corporate finance or marketing. A quick survey of business school curricula will prove that, but engineering schools increasingly have a department that focuses upon engineering or technology management, often as part of the overall field of industrial engineer...

    This paper offers the author's personal reflections on the past 50 years of research in engineering management. I suggest that the most important development in this field has been the continuing broadening of the relevant bodies of knowledge and the increased attention paid by scholars in the pertinent social science and systems disciplines to issues involving technology and its management.

    I am using the combined term "Engineering and Technology Management" (ETM) to describe a growing field that has many practitioners worldwide. One of the remarkable changes over the past five decades is the growing professionalization of the field-via graduate degrees, professional associations, conferences, publications, and systematic research into component issues. Another is the scope of ETM ac... View full abstract»

    Based on my experience as an engineer and educator, I believe that "engineering leadership" rather than "engineering management" should be the goal of engineers in key roles and the focus of their management education. I would also like to see programs in technical organizations led by engineering leaders rather than nontechnical managers. I believe that it is more beneficial to enhance the leader...

    The objective of this paper is to gain a better understanding of factors influencing software piracy. A model explaining the contribution of different factors to software piracy intention and its subsequent effect on actual software piracy is constructed based on established theories of human behavior. The model is then tested empirically in a longitudinal study with a survey. Findings show that s... View full abstract»

    Rework is an endemic problem in building construction projects and is an area of research that has received limited attention. Recent research has shown that rework is the primary cause of time and schedule overruns in projects and that rework levels do not significantly differ between current procurement methods despite calls from government for the use of more integrated procurement approaches s...

    This paper uses a game-theoretic framework to suggest the fair value for information extracted via data mining and shared between two retail-market competitors. For mutual benefit, the two players each owning a privileged information set (a collection of data or database) may want to share or pool all or part of the information contained within their respective databases. Assume that each player i... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a model that determines the optimal budget allocation strategy for the development of new technologies, for safety-critical systems, over multiple decision periods. The case of the development of a hypersonic passenger airplane is used as an illustration. The model takes into account both the probability of technology development success as a function of the allocated budget an... View full abstract»

    Each year, billions of dollars are spent by U.S. manufacturers to acquire hard and soft manufacturing technologies. Hard technologies are bundle of equipment, computer hardware and software such as computer numerical control, computer-aided manufacturing, robots, etc. In contrast, soft technologies are manufacturing techniques and know-how such as just-in-time, total quality management, statistica...

    Using data from 137 completed new product design (NPD) projects, we examine the direct and indirect effects on new product design quality of technological novelty, project organization complexity, and design-manufacturing integration (DMI). We use structural equation modeling to test the potential of DMI as a mediator of the effects of project organization complexity and technology novelty on prod... View full abstract»

    The U.S. Shipbuilding Industry, while producing the finest ships for combat, are generally not competitive when it comes to commercial ships. However, when questioned many U.S. Shipyards seemed to believe that their status quo was good enough to compete in the present and future. They did not seem to know that they needed to change in order to compete for commercial business. What was needed was a... View full abstract»
