    Multiple criteria scoring models have been suggested for use in evaluating competing research and development project proposals. This model form, more than any other, affords the decision maker the opportunity to combine, in exacting fashion, both qualitative and quantitative factors that affect his decisions. To date, however, the project scoring models that have appeared in the R&D litera... View full abstract»

    THE accelerating pace of technology in recent years is a fact of common knowledge. The most significant manifestation of it is the growing mountain of technical information spewed forth by the printing presses. Matching this expansion is a rapidly growing scientific and technical population, which, in the United States, has doubled from perhaps 300 000 in 1930 to over 600 000 in 1950, and then dou...
