    The concept of applying basic economic principles to minimize the life-cycle cost of product or system development is outlined. The costs and benefits of alternative programs during the design phase are considered and the economic impact of reliability, maintainability, and availability is included. The activities necessary to maintain a finished system are then considered and an approach for maxi... View full abstract»

    The result of an earlier investigation, that the efficiency of research teams increases with team size, has been verified by extending the investigation to further samples. The increase is exponential with team size and amounts to about a threefold increase in productivity per team member as the team is increased from 1 to 50 members. No optimum team size was found.

    A characterization is given about certain dynamic aspects of an existing organization which sells systems-engineering studies. A model built using Forrester's methodology, is reported, as well as simulations results. It is shown that a few large contracts should be preferred to many small ones, at least in the numerical case examined. View full abstract»
