    The functional organization is described together with several forms of matrix organizations which have been successfully implemented. Engineering management's responsibility and contribution to the work output when the engineering organization is also matrixed for a large program are somewhat different from that in either a functional or single-matrix organization. A program-oriented second- and ... View full abstract»

    The Galbraith model is analyzed as an instrument to differentiate matrix structures. Then, other variables are introduced to improve the model, and a matrix index is formed based on these new variables. This index is a valuable tool for the management consultant and for the researcher on matrix structures because it can be used to highlight the differences among the several types of matrices. The ... View full abstract»

    The characteristics of successful Brazilian industrial research institute project leaders are examined. Three performance measures are used: the number of project-related reports, the evaluation of the division director, and the rating of a panel of judges. An investigation is made of the association between these measures and the following characteristics: the project-leader orientation, his prim... View full abstract»

    Deals with the financial control of network projects in a Belgian construction form. An integrated computerized planning and control system is developed based upon network computations and the principles of budgeting and control with cumulative S curves. Budget forecasts are made for each new projects. During the execution of the project, feedback information concerning work progress and associate... View full abstract»

    Describes the current status of SCERT (synergistic contingency evaluation and response techniques). SCERT is an attempt to provide a systematic approach to the planning and financial evaluation of large engineering projects involving significant risks. Its mathematical basis is a decision tree/semi-Markov process representation of a project. This basis is integrated with qualitative risk assessmen... View full abstract»
