    During the last ten years strategic analysis has become a major focus of management theory and practice. From this has emerged a general consensus on basic strategic principles and processes, which will play an ever larger role in engineering thought and practice. This article explores the interface between engineering and strategy. We outline the fundamental philosophy and basic method of strateg... View full abstract»

    Results of a field study designed to assess structural and communication differences between research units and development units indicated that development units were characterized as having more routine jobs, having more interunit dependence and coordination, having more communication outside the work unit but less within the larger organization, and were less tightly structured than research un...

    When a technological innovation, a new technology or a new technological product is introduced in an economic sector, a market, a country, or in the international environment, the technology manager, based on the already observed data, needs, from the early stages of the diffusion process, to make reliable predictions for the future trends. In practice, forecasts are frequently based on the logist... View full abstract»

    The crucial strength of the CIM/FMS is the capability to produce variety at lower cost. This article provides a justification for the move towards computerized flexibility in manufacturing based upon the premise of uncertainty reduction in sales through extensive product differentiation. The economic feasibility of this marketing strategy is shown by delineating the sources of economies and diseco... View full abstract»

    Maintenance shops appear to be the most likely locations for robots in the railroad industry. The few robots that railroads have installed are found in shops, and shop activities such as welding, grinding, cleaning, and painting are well-suited to the use of standard robots. The study identifies and evaluates more than two dozen technically feasible applications at Conrail's Juniata locomotive reb... View full abstract»

    A model of the organizational conditions of effective implementation of integrated CAD/CAM is developed. The central proposition is that the conditions of successful implementation cannot in general be created concurrently with the technological effort of CAD/CAM integration. The model proposes that integration effectiveness is principally a function of the skills, procedures, strategies, and cult... View full abstract»
