    THE ANALYTICAL LITERATURE on PERT and related methods for planning, scheduling and controlling R, D, and E continues to pile up. Criticisms and suggestions for modifications and re-evaluation are generally aimed at two aspects: the underlying assumptions and the practical limitations. These TRANSACTIONS have carried many articles on both aspects in the past few years. See, for example, the followi... View full abstract»

    The extension of PERT and Critical Path planning models for analysis of cost-time trade-offs and resource allocation is discussed. Various scheduling algorithms with and without resource constraints are noted and compared as reported in the literature. Key assumptions and some practical limitations are analyzed. Recommendations for further research are offered. View full abstract»

    The process of solution identification is defined and structured as one of the four key components of the R & D planning process. Within the process some workable concepts of mobility are derived relating to the time factor in military operations. Data for the ballistic projectile hardware family are used to illustrate mobility capabilities. The counter guerrilla strategy of reaction to gue... View full abstract»

    The reliability program plan outlined herein represents what is considered a minimum program for an R & D laboratory or industrial company. If a requirement exists for an R & D laboratory to set up a reliability program, it should determine the desirability of having an overall reliability program which encompasses all projects or applying this reliability program to individual proje...

    A Matrix organization which seeks to achieve the advantages of both functional and project organization, is described. In the Matrix organization a Program Management group is set up with the purpose of getting a job done by drawing upon the capabilities of functional or line groups, including engineering and support services. In effect, Program Management becomes a quasi-permanent line group. Ind... View full abstract»

    IN RECENT YEARS a number of conferences have been held on various aspects of Research, Development, and Engineering. Most have been directed at practicing managers of R, D and E activities. A few, however, have been conferences among people studying R, D and E as a research subject — research-on-research. The two conferences mentioned below were of this type. Although there was a slight ove... View full abstract»
