    This paper presents a summary of methods of evaluating and selecting R&D projects. Approximately thirty methods, which have appeared in scattered places in the literature, are described briefly, and a bibliography is provided for further information. The various methods are compared and contrasted with each other relative to a standard set of features which they may possess, to a standard s... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a model that stores, tracks and properly relates judgments concerning systems; shows the impact of these judgments; permits real-time iteration of planning problems to facilitate the assessment and selection of system candidates for development. Criteria are threat, types of war, policy objectives, functions, systems contributions, force structure, technical feasibility, sched... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the allocation of common physical resources among multiple development tasks. The contribution of this research will be the evolution of a quantitative model for performing the resource allocation. The model differs from others in that it allocates commonly used resources to multiple tasks over time; available resources are constraints and the allocation process is based upo...

    This report is concerned with the development of mathematical models, computer programs, and data requirements to conduct development systems planning in large Research and Development organizations. The specific planning decision problems are 1) the selection of technical alternatives, 2) the funding of system components, and 3) the funding of systems. Cost-effectiveness relationships are develop... View full abstract»

  • A research laboratory performance model

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):44 - 46
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (531 KB)

    A mathematical model is developed for use in measuring and evaluating the performance of a research laboratory in meeting the needs to develop items to satisfy stated Army operational requirements. Three submodels are developed, where the overall laboratory model is obtained by means of matrix multiplication. Illustrative examples have been developed using Army research laboratory data. The model ... View full abstract»

    The Marine Engineering Laboratory (MEL), the Annapolis Division, Naval Ship R&D Center, has developed a procedure for the development of long-range R&D planning particularly aimed at the logical objective determination of the requirements imposed on new ship procurement by the Navy mission. Starting from a broad concept suggested by Naval Ship Systems Command (NAVSHIPSYSCOM), MEL has... View full abstract»

  • A classification system for military functions, technologies, and sciences

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):63 - 65
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (642 KB)

    Systems for classifying or categorizing areas of science and technology are required, not only for use in information retrieval operations, but also for methods used for R&D project selection and evaluation. This paper describes the background and development of one such system which was devised for information retrieval purposes. Either the system itself, or the methods by which it was dev...

    A concept for relating research programs sponsored by the military services to future military mission requirements is described. Developed by the Office of Research Analysis, this concept is currently being used to assist its parent command, The Office of Aerospace Research, in insuring that the Air Force's basic research program is relevant to future aerospace missions and that the Air Force sys...
