    AFTER a concentrated dose of “operations research” and “economic” type of papers in the March issue (a special issue containing selected papers on R&D Management from the 1966 Military Operations Research Symposium), the papers in this issue again discuss a variety of topics related to the management of R, D, & E. This variety does, however, contain two pa... View full abstract»

    Scientists and engineers, like other people, vary in their ability to be creative. Although some jobs in R & D are of a purely routine nature, it is commonly believed that creative ability is a useful attribute for the man in the laboratory. Yet when we measured the creative ability of some scientists and engineers, we found no simple relationship between it and their performance. Upon furt... View full abstract»

    A highly simplified model for growth of corporate sales resulting from new product research shows that investment of a fixed annual fraction of profits in new product research and development leads to a feedback effect on growth. When the parameter β(k + Sγ) exceeds unity, annual sales grow exponentially. For values less than unity, sales reach a steady annual value... View full abstract»

    This paper notes the increase in management possibilities for technically trained personnel, describes problem areas encountered by engineers in executive positions, and suggests ways to overcome such problems. By virtue of his training in orderly thinking and his involvement in technology — often a dominant function in modern industry — the engineer is particularly well suited for a... View full abstract»

    This paper constitutes an attempt to explore and consider some pertinent management problems associated with planning a highly diversified research program. Research-planning methodology is defined as a broad plan for utilizing an ordered set of principles and/or procedures which describe, quantify, and evaluate areas and categories of research in accordance with their respective contributions to ...

    A study of a three-year-old incentive-maintenance scheme administered by the engineering department of a medium-sized British manufacturer of electrical insulation products is presented. A series of flow diagrams represents the operating procedures that have been developed. This scheme is represented as a control system in order to detect the feed-forward and feedback paths that determine its effe... View full abstract»

    The required senior course in engineering economy now gives a broad perspective to business operations, discusses the engineering functions, and summarizes the techniques for project evaluation. The professional demand for reports and proposals emphasizes the need for clear, concise writing. Proper economic analysis demands thorough planning and scheduling such as offered by the diagrammatic sched... View full abstract»
