    SCHNITTGER'S paper represents a long-term trend in many industrial companies toward long-range techno-economic planning. It is far advanced in many large U. S. companies, and is beginning to appear in individual companies in Europe and elsewhere. This kind of activity, long advocated by academic people, is being performed by a variety of groups inside the industrial corporation. Some of these grou... View full abstract»

    The first section presents a conceptual analysis which is a method of reducing the fundamental technology of any company. Venn diagrams and matrix formulation are used to apply the technology of the company in diversified areas. The second section employs the simplest entropy concept of information theory to describe the management of a development program. Selection of the portfolio is included. ... View full abstract»

    The study reported focuses first on the relationship between a project manager's background characteristics and certain characteristics of the projects he is asked to manage. The impact of this decision process is then examined by relating project manager experience and project characteristics to measures of project performance. The findings indicate that organizations select their oldest and most... View full abstract»

  • The relationship between interstate variations in the growth of R&D and economic activity

    The relationship between regional R&D growth and subsequent regional economic growth is analyzed empirically. The rates of growth from 1920 to 1964 are calculated for various economic variables and R&D in the 48 contiguous states. The correlation coefficients of the growth equations measure consistency in growth. These coefficients are then analyzed via a correlation procedure. The r... View full abstract»

    Since the benefits of a military investment are not marketable, the investment itself is also not marketable. It follows, in particular, that there is no way in which the cost profile of such an investment can even conceptually be varied, except by government borrowing or by adoption of an alternative investment. Hence, in the absence of borrowing, a cost stream represents a unique profile of reso... View full abstract»

    An important feature of dealing with overall management problems is the fact that the economic behavior of a company is averaged over a fixed quantum of time, i.e., one year. Because economic variables are yearly averages, the economic world is endowed with a periodic substrate. The economic world is a sort of crystal, and economic variables behave much in the manner of physical entities in crysta... View full abstract»

  • The need for an organized approach to EMI (electromagnetic interference) control

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):149 - 152

    EMI control refers to the ever-increasing problem of controlling the adverse effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI) on electronic equipment. Atmospheric noise, due to the phenomena of solar radiation and the ionosphere, is one form of ambient interference, but man-made noise adds to the ambient solar interference and increases the ambient intensity by many orders of magnitude. Descriptions ... View full abstract»
