    The study centers upon new, technologically based firms founded on the San Francisco peninsula since 1960. Spin-off rates were calculated for individual organizations and for different classes of organizations in this area. It was found that organizations varied widely in the extent to which they had served as incubators of new firms. Firms with less than 500 employees and small subsidiaries had h...

    Network models with both time and cost dimensions have not been used extensively on industrial construction projects. Analysis of 33 companies participating in the study revealed that network model requirements were incompatible with information currently generated by the organization. Moreover, the organizational structure of a company was a strong determinant as to the level of model sophisticat... View full abstract»

    In this paper a nomogram is presented as a quick method for precomputing the economic range of expenditure on a project before its actual initiation. After a brief discussion of the several factors that distinguish the problem as presented to a research establishment in a developing country, the theory underlying the construction of the nomogram and its application is outlined, and the technique i...
