    AS mentioned in the August issue, this is the last issue I will edit for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT. This provides an opportunity to look ahead, rather than back, at the field of R&D/Innovation, R&D/-Engineering, or whatever we want to call the general focus of this TRANSACTIONS. During the twenty-five years of my tenure as editor, a number of changes have occurr... View full abstract»

    AL RUBENSTEIN has achieved something that very few people do. He has become a legend in his own time … legend as an educator, legend as a researcher, and legend as the editor of this TRANSACTIONS for quarter of a century. This is the last issue under his editorship but his impact on the emerging engineering management discipline has been so great that he will always remain as one of the lea... View full abstract»

    Professor Albert H. Rubenstein has been Editor of the ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT TRANSACTIONS OF THE IRE and starting in 1963, the IEEE since 1958. In 1983 when I was President of the Engineering Management Society (EMS), Al informed me that 25 years as editor was sufficient, and that we should start the search for his successor. With his guidance we completed that search in 1984. He will officially r... View full abstract»

    Often the top management of a firm makes decisions affecting facility plans prior to the commencement of engineering design activity on the plans. Since the decisions made by top management are judgmental in nature, it is important to recognize the limitations of the process of human judgment. A procedure is described to aid the facility planning function, taking into account the process of human ... View full abstract»

    Technical innovation is a concept proposed in 1939 by economist Joseph Schumpeter. Initially ignored, it is now considered the key to improving high-tech productivity. Most writers agree on a definition which identifies the start as a novel creative step, and the end as the time of commercial availability or general use. There appear to be two basic categories of technical innovation: the first st... View full abstract»

    The career and professional attitudes of engineers whose individual needs matched organizational rewards were compared to those whose needs failed to match such rewards. Seventy-two professional engineers employed by four multinational corporations were divided into quadrants, on the basis of whether they were satisfied or dissatisfied with their jobs and whether their needs matched or failed to m...
