    Several special issues and special sections are being planned for this Transactions over the next 2–3 years (the planning and executing cycle sometimes is as long as 3 years). One in particular requires participation from some of our “nonacademic” readers. It is a special issue on “Project Management” in Research, Development, and Engineering (R, D, & E). ...

    Technological change is discussed in the context of systems cost analysis in two ways. First, it is a specific objective of research and development (R&D) programs and is a direct determinant of R&D cost. Methods of measuring technological change are evaluated and an example of an R&D cost equation is set forth. Second, technological change underlies the relationships between design/pe...

    A system dynamics model of the interrelations in an R&D organization between management by objectives (MBO), social interaction, and employee motivation and productivity is presented. In many cases, MBO is shown to increase employee productivity by generating task-related work pressures. However, longer run counteracting decreases in productivity may result if management neglects the negative ... View full abstract»

    The present paper aims at presenting a rational way of collecting, selecting, and ranking problem-generating ideas to be solved by R&D on a national plane. In order to carry out the above target, the author worked out a questionnaire for the collection of information (technological, economic, and financial) related to the idea supplied. So as to select from among the ideas collected, a sifting... View full abstract»

    In an earlier study of scientific instrument innovations, it was found that instrument users rather than instrument manufacturers dominated the innovation work in approximately 80 percent of the innovation cases studied. In the present paper, this work is extended by examining 55 process innovations used in the manufacture of semiconductors and electronic subassemblies. In 67 percent of the proces...
