    ALTHOUGH RESEARCH, development, and engineering contain many uncertainties, among the most risky kinds of business decisions are those that lie in the marketing areas. The decisions related to introducing a new product, pricing it, and selecting a production volume involve the kind of risks that could spell disaster for a company. View full abstract»

    A report on a heuristic program which performs work formerly done by chemists is presented here. The first part of the paper describes briefly the task and the program. Because the technique of heuristic programming is now well known, however, the emphasis of this paper is on the organizational problem of successfully introducing such an innovation. The last section of the paper discusses briefly ... View full abstract»

    A stochastic model is presented which purports to assess the “probability” of a given proposal “capturing” a job contract award. Parameters of the process are estimated by a constrained set of linear regression equations involving the ranked positions of identified competitors relative to factors thought to be influential in the award process. Intended use of the model ... View full abstract»

    In recruiting technical people, education, experience, and competency are required, but there is one more dimension which should be sought — a match between creative talent and the field of experience. Creative people can be divided into several categories, and their characteristics are discernable. Within these subdivisions of creative personnel, the proper mixture of creativity and field ...
