    Today's manager is confronted with a paradox: within his organization there are “giant brains”, but still he is forced to make daily decisions without adequate knowledge of the “facts” of his enterprise. However, techniques are emerging which will permit a more efficient distribution of the tasks of decision making between man and machine and thus, soon executive capabi... View full abstract»

    This report describes a computerized method for obtaining useful manpower control data. The types of data obtained are described, factored samples are provided and sample uses made of the data are related. The most significant element of the control system is its ability to adjust the history of an organization so that it is directly applicable for controlling the operation of an organization as i...

    This report presents the results of applying basic management principles to the Airborne Long Range Input (ALRI) test program. The testing involved system integration of airborne electronic sensor and communication equipment with ground electronic data processing and computation equipment. The management of the test program coordinated the efforts of approximately ten industrial subcontractors to ... View full abstract»

  • Formulas for investment and management decisions that maximize the expected exponential rate of growth of capital

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):174 - 177

    In 1956, J. L. Kelly, Jr., gave a new interpretation of “information rate” as the maximum rate of exponential growth of a gambler's capital where best strategic use is made of “inside information.” An extension of this theory, applicable to investment or management problems, has been derived. Equations are obtained for determining the distribution of capital among n cat... View full abstract»

    POED (Performance Organization for Evaluation and Decision) is an evaluation and decision technique which permits computing performance of a device, equipment, system or system complex; compares and scores this performance against requirements or value judgments representing users' needs; and organizes results in a useful manner so that assessment of value is readily achieved. It is a basic ingred... View full abstract»

    A dynamic simulation of a man-machine information system has been developed to provide analytical and evaluative aids in system design, implementation, and verification. This form of on-site simulation is called “Normative Exercising,” because of its two distinguishing characteristics: 1) specification in advance of preferred problem solutions; 2) guidance of player performance into ...

  • The problem of assessing scientific accomplishment: A potential solution

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):192 - 196
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1198 KB)

    The failure to understand the relationship between organizational setting and scientific accomplishment can result in structures that inhibit rather than promote effective research. Yet, relatively little of a factual nature is known about the effect of the increasingly complex personal and institutional structure within which research is conducted on the nature and quality of scientific work. The... View full abstract»
