    The four articles in this issue split evenly along the “analytical-to-human” dimension. Two of them (Aaker/Tyebjee and Brown) deal with quantitative models of aspects of the Research, Development, and Engineering (R, D, & E) process aimed at improving the economic decisions and control aspects of management. The other two (Badawy and White) deal with organizational and motivat... View full abstract»

    The R&D project selection model provides for three types of project interrelationships: overlap in project resource utilization, technical project interdependence, and the project interaction with respect to value contribution. It also provides an input structure that should help diverse people in the organization communicate their knowledge and opinions to the R&D planning process. View full abstract»

    As a result of changes in economic, social and technological conditions, engineering managers are increasingly facing problems in motivating engineers. This, coupled with engineers' orientations and expectations to be treated as professionals, has caused considerable tensions and strains in the engineer-management relationship. This calls for changes in engineering management styles to maintain mo... View full abstract»

    As project management has come of age, there has been an increasing awareness of the fact that the greater the inherent difficulty of the R&D activity, the more likely it becomes that the project will encounter cost and schedule overruns. Some authors have even gone so far as to call for `built-in' allowances for overruns. It is the purpose of this paper to point out not only that such a schem... View full abstract»
