    SEVERAL PAPERS in this issue deal with major management techniques such as decision analysis, systems analysis, and an emerging management technology having to do with problem solving. A striking feature of the papers in this issue is that most of them are authored by people who are not in university groups. They are from laboratories and companies which are not usually the source of papers about ... View full abstract»

    Management of the development of complex dynamical systems includes the task of establishing system performance requirements. These requirements are typically obtained from a nonsystematic process, which often results in premature constraining of system design. This paper describes an orderly methodology for establishing performance requirements for complex systems. The methodology uses a “... View full abstract»

    Based upon extensive data on 51 R&D projects in high-tech companies, a discriminant analysis produced 16 factors which discriminated very well the decision to continue or terminate a project in the development phase. The most important discriminating variables were virtually strategic parameters of the high-technology research environment. Specifically, high rates of product turnover, high ...

    Fossil-fueled power-plant technology is mature but continually evolving. It was recently the subject of transfer from a U.S. Engineer/Architect firm to a joint venture in Taiwan. The transfer was a success is that the aims were attained within the time limits set. The original plan was flexible enough to tolerate changes warranted by experience. This paper treats the electrical group as typical an... View full abstract»

    This article offers practical insights into the technically-oriented personality by briefly discussing several developmental, educational, and work experiences which are often common to such people. It deals with the classic dilemma faced by people who provide a technically-specialized service to an organization when they must choose between the management route or the technical individual-contrib...
