    By coincidence of timing in the editorial cycle, three of the papers in this issue relate to questions of productivity. A further coincidence is that two of them relate to technologies and industries other than electrical and electronic. Over the years we have had contributions from people in other industries which dealt with problems of a general enough nature to be relevant to those faced in man... View full abstract»

    Measurement of productivity growth at thirty continuous steel casting plants disclosed universally long startup duration ranging from one to six years. This research finding extends the development of productivity growth measurement, which began with the aircraft learning curve forty years ago, to a significantly sized sample taken from one new machine-intensive technology. The manufacturing progr... View full abstract»

    This analysis was conducted to aid management of a large corporation's Research and Engineering Division in planning the allocation of its budget among six areas of responsibility. The allocation problem is complicated by multiple competing objectives and by uncertainty in the outcome corresponding to a given allocation policy. These characteristics were taken into account by eliciting a multiattr... View full abstract»

    Since the Second World War the textile machinery industries in the advanced Western countries have undergone a technological revolution. Not only has the pace of technical change increased, but much of this change has become technically more radical than before, often embodying techniques from other sectors. This paper outlines the attempts of a number of machinery manufacturers to import technolo... View full abstract»

    Productivity in an Air Force Research and Development (R&D) Laboratory was measured with eight separate kinds of output, an unweighted total, and a weighted total measure of output for 135 scientists/engineers. The relationships among productivity and several individual and organizational variables were examined. View full abstract»
