    One of the research areas in the field of R, D, & E management which presents a rough parallel to research in the natural sciences concerns the analytical and decision processes involved in project selection and resource allocation. Although, like much of the literature on management topics, progress in the field is not monotonic as it appears to be in some areas of physics and chemistry, t... View full abstract»

    Presents an application of stochastic integer-programming formulation to a portfolio of projects (each of which were planned with the aid of a decision-tree structure). Follow-up studies undertaken one year later are described in an attempt to assess the accuracy of the data and adequacy of the model in practice. View full abstract»

    Explores the effects of nonroutine requirements and a high-pressure situation on the process of technological information acquisition by R&D managers for problem solving in R&D groups. A survey of R&D managers in 116 firms in four industries reveals that nonroutine requirements in a contingency situation do affect their technical information acquisition behavior. Firm size and the dire... View full abstract»

    Increasing size of R&D projects poses problems of matching workload with capacity when the size of the R&D department and exploiting capability remain fixed. Potential diseconomies arising from such mismatching are described, and strategies for alleviating such diseconomies are discussed. View full abstract»
