    A data-base management system has been applied to the management of test results in the development of an integrated-circuit (IC) memory device. The system software is largely independent of the specific device tested and can be applied to any IC device that can be characterized by chips within slices within lots. Several sets of parametric and go-nogo test sequences can be maintained simultaneous... View full abstract»

    The work plan analysis and scheduling technique, WoPAST technique, was developed to plan and schedule complex engineering programs when early ideas and goals are still fluid and responsibilities are general and gross. The basic techniques were adapted from other planning systems, and the approach was kept as simple as possible without sacrificing any necessary detail. It lends itself well to enhan...

    The questions of do and should universities provide management education for undergraduate engineers are addressed. Then, the approach to management education that is being used at the State University of New York at Buffalo is described. This approach consists of a senior-level elective engineering course. The central theme of the course which unifies the many topics of discussion is the preparat... View full abstract»

    The relationship between technical uncertainty and the technical decision maker's selection of information channels/sources is investigated. A questionnaire survey was conducted among 384 engineers and scientists in a large government R&D organization. Findings indicate a strong correlation between technical uncertainty and a decision maker's choice of more efficient information channels/sourc... View full abstract»

    The author's experience of managing a medium-sized engineering organization using `management by objectives' (MBO) is described. A description of some of the problems encountered, the means by which they were solved, and some guides for others who might wish to apply MBO in an engineering context are included.
