    FRISCHMUTH and Allen present data on a subject that has been explored in a number of articles in this Transactions over the past several years — the thought processes involved in solving scientific or engineering problems. It is a field receiving increased attention for a number of reasons. One of the major reasons it is of current interest is related to the situation in the fields of techn... View full abstract»

    Tape-recorded weekly protocols were gathered from three different engineers engaged on the same problem in a three-way parallel R&D project. Based on these protocols and a post-project interview with each engineer, a model of the individual technical problem solving process is developed. The model is in the form of a process flow chart and details the engineer's interaction with sources of ... View full abstract»

    Configuration management is the management of technical requirements which define systems, system equipment, or individual equipment and changes thereto. It is implemented through procedures by which uniform and mutually supporting methods for configuration identification, control, and accounting are established and maintained for systems and equipment and for components of systems and equipment.

    This paper discusses the need for in-house R&D management research activities in government agencies. Problems of manning and training of personnel to conduct such research programs, project portfolio, and strategy are described. Case studies of new and on-going activities are presented. The paper summarizes a workshop, devoted to the subject of in-house management research activities, that... View full abstract»

    A method is described for organizing, evaluating, and classifying contestants in a competition. The technique facilitates the task of decision making by introducing orderliness of approach, quantification technique, and mathematical processing to the subjective problem of judging alternatives. The system is essentially two-phased: 1) an organizational structure that is simply adjusted to encompass... View full abstract»
