    Schmied's paper tackles, head on, one of the most pressing problems for government sponsored Research, Development, and Engineering (R, D, & E) — the question of payoff. As costs have risen and the total national R, D, & E budgets of the industrialized countries have escalated, policy makers and the general public are increasingly demanding to know how much this “invest...

    This study empirically examines the relationship between perceived environmental uncertainty and the information search behavior of managers in organizational boundary-spanning positions. It tests hypotheses related to the perceived importance managers attach to external, internal, formal, and informal information sources, as environmental uncertainty increases. Managerial search behavior of elect... View full abstract»

    The study attempts to quantify the technical and economic benefits to the manufacturing industries involved in CERN contracts in relation to the expenditures on CERN by its member states. Interviews were carried out in some 130 European firms, which supplied data on estimates of increased sales and decreased costs due to CERN contracts. This economic utility totals 1665 million Swiss francs (MSF) ... View full abstract»

    The aim of the article is to demonstrate how decision analysis can be helpful in formulating and solving capacity expansion problems faced by electric utility companies. This general problem involves the specification of sizes and types of generation capacity (i.e., nuclear units, coal units, combustion turbines) to be brought on line at various points in time. Decision analysis is suggested as a ... View full abstract»
