    A perennial subject of discussion among members of the editorial group of this Transactions and the administrative group of our parent organization — the Engineering Management Society (EMS) of IEEE is: “Why can't we get more papers from practitioners?” For a professional technical society we have had a reasonably good mix of papers from academic researchers and practitioners ...

    Emphasizes the practical aspects of selecting projects or programs for funding utilizing an experience-based resource group or team of experts. A process is proposed for identifying research and development needs in a systematic manner which attempts to minimize impulsiveness, while maximizing careful review and decision making. The methodology discussed has proven to be effective at clarifying pr... View full abstract»

    The purpose of the research was to develop methods for shortening the procurement time for complex components by releasing some engineering information prior to the final design freeze. The investigation covered review and analysis of records of engineering and procurement at a major defense contractor, interviews with key contractor personnel, and a literature search. The study, concluded that ea... View full abstract»

    The paper first proposes a matrix model for the general classification of corporate training and development (T&D) objectives. A study is then initiated to test the model's structure. After obtaining support, survey data are used to derive first approximation values for individual cells within the model. View full abstract»

    A dynamic and spatial model of technology transfer is presented, in relatively simple mathematical form, which incorporates time and potential technological distance as a level parameter. The existing models of technological change at a particular location (that is, the technological substitution models) are shown to be special cases of the developed time-level model. Transfer of computer technolo... View full abstract»
