    THE PROBLEM of how to handle one's own research publications often poses a dilemma for the editor of a journal. The editor of this Transactions has struggled with this problem for years and has still not resolved it. The first paper, jointly authored with two of his colleagues, represents at least a temporary resolution. It was, of course, reviewed in the usual manner and is first in this issue fo...

    A flow model is presented which identifies some of the organizational factors influencing idea generation behavior in industrial R&D laboratories. The model is constructed from literature-based propositions which make explicit the role played by several organizational factors identified in the model. Data were collected on about 300 ideas created in a divisional laboratory of a major U.S. c... View full abstract»

    The relationship of Reliability Engineering to other disciplines, its purpose, and its function in the scheme of organization is a subject of continual concern. This paper views Reliability Engineering as a managerial tool to assist management and its engineering staff in accomplishing the purposes of an enterprise. The risk of unreliability is discussed with emphasis on the risk which the supplie... View full abstract»

    After reviewing the beta distribution and its properties, a simple technique is described for obtaining exact solutions to the cubic equation which results from the PERT constraint on standard deviation. These solutions are then used, together with the expression for the mode of the beta distribution, to determine graphically the specific values of the parameters of a beta distribution which may b...

    The four major types of organization structures found in research and development laboratories were investigated. This study, conducted at a large AEC laboratory, recommends how these structures can be most effectively utilized. The structures are broad-span-of-control, projects, project-functional, and functional. They are discussed in terms of the mission, the span-of-control, and the personnel ... View full abstract»

    A numerical example from R&D project selection is used to illustrate an analytical procedure for including subjective knowledge about certain types of unforeseen occurrences in the decision process. The R&D manager describes each project with a decision tree whose structure is not known exactly because of the possible occurrence of research results that could not have been anticipate...

    This paper reports the results of a study undertaken by the Computer Personnel Research Group to gain some insight into the relationship between, on the one hand, rated job performance, and, on the other, cognitive abilities, vocational interests, and biographical information of computer programmers. A test battery composed of the IBM Programmer Aptitude Test, the Test of Sequential Instructions (... View full abstract»
