    THIS WILL BE a brief editorial because this is a thin issue and because I am winding up (or down) as Editor of this TRANSACTIONS. Although no clear outline of my “farewell editorial” for the November issue has yet come to mind, I hope to pass on some ideas resulting from 25 years as editor of this TRANSACTIONS and as an active researcher and practitioner for over 35 years in the fiel...

    A methodology is outlined for the assessment of large-scale research and development programs that involve multiple research phases and parallel approaches. Among its capabilities, the assessment methodology assists in the estimation of the effect of alternative budget levels, allocation of resources within the total budget, and alternative management strategies on various measures of program succ...

    Distributed processing configurations have a distinct advantage over a centralized approach in their adaptability to a constantly changing environment. There are many other desirable attributes of distributed processing, including enhanced survivability (with the consequent increase in system availability), reconfigurability, and recoverability. Views have also been expressed on the desirability o... View full abstract»

    Examines how the value to a decision-maker of formal, quantitative decision aids changes as the setting shifts from the program level to senior executives and, ultimately, to external groups to which the decision-maker is accountable. Examples drawn from the use of research and development project selection models in the US Department of Energy are used to illustrate the various meanings that `use... View full abstract»

    Transferring technology from development to manufacturing is often not straightforward. Many who have been involved with development-production transition have found that a technology's existence in the laboratory does not ensure success as a mass-produced item. Complexity and rate of change associated with today's technologies make it difficult to predict results, ascertain risk, set objectives, ... View full abstract»

    Modern engineering practices are too multidisciplinary to be structured strictly on functional lines. The project approach to engineering management, which emerged in the 1960s, responds to the need for effective integration and execution of the many operations that come into play during a modern engineering program.
