    Analysis of design engineering functions has suggested the practicality of determining the normal degree of their occurrence by means of supervisor samplings of the elements of work being done during representative work periods. Such sampling data can be analyzed to determine 1) the intrinsic time-out or job fatigue trends; 2) elemental work profiles for each representative work category; 3) produ... View full abstract»

    The techniques described in this paper to control research, development and engineering projects are adaptations of those developed and well-proven methods used for controlling manufacturing processes. To complete an engineering project to meet established specifications, within allotted funds and in the scheduled time, it is necessary to program the various phases and requirements of the project ...

    R and D projects are viewed as networks of inter-related events to be achieved in proper ordered sequence. This paper generalizes some earlier work. The present paper takes cognizance of technical performance and scarce resources as well as time. By means of the analysis presented herein, it is possible to find the optimal combination of time, technical performance level, and resources for any pro... View full abstract»

    Surveys of spending for Research and Development have been undertaken by the Office of Special Studies, National Science Foundation, for several years. In this report, the latest figures on industrial R and D spending are presented for 1958. Comparisons between 1953 and 1958 indicate an increase of 229 per cent in federally financed R and D, 64 per cent in company financed R and D, and a total inc... View full abstract»

    A decision regarding the best scope and depth of effort is often difficult to make in writing proposals for study contracts. A model is presented for systematizing this decision making. The factors considered include: contract price, various components of cost, and profit. A ``potential performance capability'' is defined, and its use is illustrated. An example of the suggested method of analysis ... View full abstract»
