    THE THREE technical papers in this issue all deal with the perennial problem of evaluation in RD&E. Regular readers of this TRANSACTIONS will have found this to be a major theme in the published papers. One discouraging aspect of research and experimentation in this field of evaluation, such as that reported by Glass, Goodwin, and Moskowitz, is that it is not very cumulative. That is, ...

    For many years, R&D managers have been trying to devise better yardsticks for measuring the effectiveness and utility of organisations engaged in research and development. This paper summarizes a number of techniques used by the Department of Defense in evaluating the effectiveness of its in-house laboratory systems. The purpose is not to suggest that solutions to the problem of organiz... View full abstract»

    The current trend in aerospace business is to provide cost-effective programs and designs that are optimized to provide the most for the dollar but not overdesigned beyond the necessary requirements. Too many dollars can be spent on achieving results far above those required to meet the function for which the design is intended. A systematic, quantitative method is required for deciding how much s... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the results of some experiments, based on a research and development (R&D) game that examined R&D managers' proclivities for various options that hedge against uncertainty and the overall quality of their choices with respect to the Bayesian decision-theoretic model. Thirty R&D managers participated in the experiments, which were conducted at an industrial R&D ... View full abstract»

    The development of an industry around the laser has failed to match early expectations. This is discussed in terms of the more general high-technology phenomenon of preoccupation with the physical product and lack of market awareness. View full abstract»

    The Proceedings of the 3rd Symposium on Long-Range Forecasting and Planning contain the papers that were presented and the discussion of those papers. The discussion was recorded during the Symposium and has been edited to clarify the speakers' meaning. However, during the editing process a conscious effort was made to retain the flavor of free discussion that marked the Symposium. We feel that th... View full abstract»
