    RECENTLY a number of meetings have been held in the area of management of Research, Development and Engineering (RD&E) during which a persistent question has been raised: “Has the art of managing RD&E improved much in the past 10 to 15 years?” This is a complex question and deserves careful consideration. Certainly the size and scope of R&D programs have increase... View full abstract»

    The development of a new design aid (a computer simulation of a particular engineer's design behavior) is described. Improvement in the engineer's technical performance has resulted from the more extensive and systematic examination of design alternatives, which the simulation has made possible. As a case study of engineering design, this study also represents an intensive effort to identify and t... View full abstract»

    The advent of large-scale, complex electronics systems utilizing integrated, semiautomatic test equipment and integrated, semiautomatic maintenance support equipment, can cause the determination and definition of the exact configuration of the system to be extremely difficult, if even possible. By extending the concept of compatibility to include not only the interrelationship of equipment to equi... View full abstract»

    The effect of two basic types of organizational form on the stability and flexibility of manpower in companies engaged in research and development for the United States government was investigated. Important criteria for selecting one organizational form rather than another were investigated in order to ascertain which criteria provide the rationale for choosing specific organizational forms.
