We welcome the competition for good articles (our competition for readership is, at present, not significant). When this TRANSACTIONS embarked on its “new” editorial policy in 1960 (see inside of back cover), it wa... View full abstract»

    Thirty-nine customer-initiated R&D projects were studied from the standpoint of those involved-salesmen, product engineers, R&D management, and R&D technical personnel. The technical and time success of the projects were correlated with six project dimensions as perceived by the R&D person working on the project, with participation and knowledge of product variables derived from ma...

    R&D evaluation methods and associated techniques are briefly reviewed. First, the use of checklists-ranging from a simple list of elements to a catalogue of profiles, or information patterns-is investigated. Then, some of the difficulties of interpretation and application of the deceptively simple index method-including consideration of the Olsen, Pacifico, Teal, and Disman formulas-are examin...

    It is generally recognized that practicing managers plan and take decisions by considering a few `key' factors in a given situation. However, this process of simplification can result in many different `decision models' and the question arises: which model is an `adequate and sufficient' representation of reality for the decision problem in hand. A methodology for comparing alternative mathematica... View full abstract»
