    Network management techniques were at one time mandatory for aerospace R&D projects. This study investigates the current extent to which network management techniques — the basic PERT/CPM network, cost duration analysis, and critical resource analysis — are being used as part of aerospace R&D management. Ninety-eight interviews with individuals in government and industr... View full abstract»

    The matrix organizational form seems well suited to the needs of R & D managers due to its ability to balance, through dual hierarchies, system and functional workflows. This article presents an innovative, yet practical approach to make an initial assessment as to whether a large Federal agricultural research agency possessed the necessary structural and behavioral properties for formal im...

    Systems analysis is evolving into a coherent field of research and practice. Several decades of interdisciplinary problem-solving efforts have yielded considerable insight and an impressive array of techniques to help accomplish systems analysis. But the extended evolution of systems analysis has created a challenging problem for the modern student, scholar, teacher, and practitioner: an overabund... View full abstract»

    Within highly technological industries a separation, by departments, of the research and development functions is common. Yet, in often inappropriate ways, the phrase “R&D” is used not merely to link the two functions, but rather to minimize differences, and describe the functions as a single operational entity.
