    Explores the problems in controlling and evaluating a radical process innovation in a batch manufacturing firm. Data come from interviews with individuals in various hierarchical levels and functions. The decision to adopt tended to be qualitative in nature and essentially made by two representatives of the organization's technostructure. Their major objective was to minimize the chance of disaste... View full abstract»

    Systems design involves the determination of interdependent variables. Thus the precedence ordering for the tasks of determining these variables involves circuits. Circuits require planning decisions about how to iterate and where to use estimates. Conventional planning techniques, such as critical path, do not deal with these problems. Techniques are shown which acknowledge these circuits in the ... View full abstract»

    The mix of academic and practitioner authors in the IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management is apparently an item of recurring interest. Repeatedly, the question is asked: “Why can't we get more papers from practitioners?” The question remains unanswered in spite of unvalidated statements to the contrary. View full abstract»

    Reviews two theories about safety: the values that society uses when evaluating the work of engineers, and the principles of engineering design. Interaction of these factors is discussed, resulting in suggestions to guide engineers and managers in making design decisions for three different futures: individualism, regimentation, and middle-of-the-road.
