    From a sociotechnical systems theory framework, this study investigates the effect of the introduction of advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) on communication, interaction, and other job outcomes at a large manufacturing firm. Ninety-four skilled workers, some with supervisory responsibility, responded to a mail questionnaire about the introduction of industrial robots on a manufacturing line.... View full abstract»

    The research and development project selection decision is concerned with the allocation of resources to a set of proposals for scientific and engineering activities. The project selection and resource allocation process can be viewed as a multiple-criteria decision-making problem, within the context of the long-range and strategic planning process of the firm. The purpose of this paper is explore... View full abstract»

  • Implicit capital cost of project investments

    We propose a capital cost approach to compute impact of delays on projects costs. One effect of delaying a project completion is to keep some capital innactive. In particular, in the case of high investment or lengthy projects, the marginal capital cost may become significant. Our approach is to compute the opportunity cost of the incurred investment during the delay. This method helps to support ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a process used to determine critical success factors that are felt to be predictive of successful project management. Full time managers who have had experience with projects were used to generate critical success factors that they felt to be crucial to successful project implementation. Ten factors were discovered that relate well to previous theoretical formulations in the l... View full abstract»

    Recent studies of excellent R&D management have highlighted the management of loose and tight elements — of change and continuity. Building on these studies, this paper reports on a comprehensive review of the literature and an in-depth study of an R&D laboratory including a series of twenty-nine detailed interviews with research performers and research managers. It presents a... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a model for evaluating technology transfer agreements between firms when production costs decline with experience. Results indicate that licensing is advantageous for the potential licensor only under special conditions. Several possibly advantageous licensing situations are examined including licensing in response to a second-source requirement by a large potential customer. A... View full abstract»

    Are the simple, abstract mathematical models of optimal R&D investment consistent with reality, or even relevant conceptual models of the R&D investment process? In this paper we adduce evidence that suggests the answers to each of these questions is yes. The paper first presents a brief review of the key concept of a convex time-cost tradeoff, which by assumption forms the basis for... View full abstract»
