    BY SHEER COINCIDENCE, two of the three technical papers in this issue report on simulation “experiments” conducted with students and professional engineers or managers. The subject matter of the two exercises spans the stages of the overall R&D/Innovation process from early product development decisions to problem-solving with respect to plant operating problems. This kind of ... View full abstract»

    A problem of plant failure was presented individually to (a) experienced professionals, and (b) senior engineering students in the University of Melbourne. Each participant in the experiment was asked to assess the problem and try to solve it, his verbal response to this request being tape-recorded; written replies from other students who had answered the problem as an examination question were al...

    This research adapted the behavioral decision theory modeling approach to capture product development decision policies. 29 students in a strategic management course, 38 students in an introductory management course, and 50 managers completed a simulated product development decision-making exercise. Significant policy differences were observed among the groups in terms of the average weights attri... View full abstract»

  • Technical and management notes: The roles of expanded awareness and inner awareness in technological creativity

    Publication Year: 1983 , Page(s): 25 - 26

    This note lends support to an early conjecture by William Shockley (1957) on the qualities of consciousness attributable to the creative technologist. The roles of expanded awareness and the ability to experience thoughts at their source are traced through the statements of outstanding creative technologists as well as leading students of creativity. A possible technique for developing those quali... View full abstract»

    Flexiplace involves giving people greater options on where they work, including possibilities to work at home part or all of the time. There is a growing potential for such arrangements, especially for engineers. To be successful, however, flexiplace must be voluntary and designed to fit particular needs and circumstances. Possible benefits and drawbacks of flexiplace for individuals, firms, and t... View full abstract»
