    THE papers in this issue demonstrate the broad range of subjects and methods of presentation within the area of engineering management. The ubiquitous concern with systems engineering has, in recent issues, been represented by papers on specific topics. Hill's paper presents an overall view that will be a useful reference for readers who have somehow missed the extensive literature on the subject. View full abstract»

    The systems engineering approach provides an increasingly widespread and pervasive integrative framework for modern systems analysis and management practice. Systems engineering methodology stems primarily from extensive experience in the development and management of highly complex large scale military systems by the Department of Defense. An attempt is made in this paper to present a background ... View full abstract»

    The causes and consequences of disrupted startups of new product and production processes are examined in relation to examples drawn from several, diverse industries. It is demonstrated that inappropriate management actions can often precipitate significant deviations from expected patterns of productivity increases during startups, resulting in important short- and long-run productivity losses. B... View full abstract»

  • Optimal reallocation of R&D money under budget decrement

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):142 - 145

    There sometimes arises in R&D (and other) management the necessity to revise the current allocation of R&D money among projects because of a decrement in the total budget appropriated for research. What is usually required in such circumstances is a quick computational procedure (though not necessarily 100 percent accurate) based on a minimum of input data. New constraints expressing minim...

    An examination by the authors of the complexity of business decision making led to the conclusion that an organized information gathering and analysis mechanism is necessary to cope with this complexity. In this paper a proposed structure of the decision-making process is presented in the context of an R&D organization engaged in many different technical programs and projects. The foundation o...

    This note defines software, lists examples, establishes a basis for software management, and recommends implementation of management by the establishment of an Associate Program Manager with the total software responsibility. Some of the problems inherent in the generation of the data are examined. View full abstract»
