    The article by Souder and Chakrabarti reports on a study in an area of increasing importance to R, D, &E. In industry after industry, the R&D dominance of the 1950's and 1960's has given way to sales and marketing dominated companies and industries. As a result of many factors — including increased competition in formerly “protected” markets, inflation and cost-p... View full abstract»

    Employs and demonstrates a multiattribute value (MAV) measurement technique due to Keeney and Raiffa (1976) to identify a MAV function for generation expansion planning, containing attributes of: (1) the loss of peak load probability for each time period (e.g., one year) of the planning horizon for a proposed generation system, and (2) the total discounted capital and operating costs over a planni...

    Explores the effect of organizational factors which characterize the interface between marketing and R&D, with respect to the innovation process. The basic premise is that the degree of collaboration/integration between functional units, such as marketing and R&D, has a profound influence on the success/failure outcome of innovation projects in industrial settings. Several important variab... View full abstract»

    Concerns the resource allocation problem in project management. Besides a review of the literature, a new heuristic method, the dynamic time now procedure, is presented. Unlike the classical heuristics, it appears to be less affected by the network and resource characteristics of the project. This yields significant project duration reduction, especially on projects with a heterogeneous network st... View full abstract»
