    ALTHOUGH this has been a year for special issues (more are on the way), the normal flow of unsolicited papers which have completed the review and revision cycle yields the current set of miscellaneous papers. They range from fairly formal and quantitative papers related to project selection resource allocation (one of the TRANSACTIONS regular topic areas) and evaluation, to managing engineers. Two...

    A comparative analysis was undertaken of the performance of firms in the scientific instrument industry in the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany. Forty on-site interviews were undertaken representing 33 companies in the two countries. A scored structured interview technique was used to collect data which were then analyzed for factors affecting performance in new product developme... View full abstract»

    Complex R&D programs, such as end product oriented VLSI development, require utilization and integration of teams consisting of individuals representing a wide variety of different areas of expertise. VLSI development and pilot manufacturing, particularly, require dimensional and material quality control expertise not usually found in computer product or process design laboratories. The nee...

    The evaluation of scientific and technological performance is a complex process requiring many sources of input that must be carefully synthesized and interpreted. One measure of performance is the number of citations received by an individual's scientific publications or patents. A methodology is proposed for standardizing citation counts that allows them to be directly compared for individuals w... View full abstract»

    This paper reports empirical results of research into the relationship of R&D management and performance. It is based on the contingency approach, in particular, the work of Lawrence and Lorsch [14]. It looks at global management of R&D and includes: • its place in the organization; • the organizational structure of the R&D department; and • the relationsh... View full abstract»

    In an R&D laboratory, Behavioral Decision Theory was used to identify operative goals as a method of organizational analysis. Six goals were used as criteria in a decision-making exercise wherein 69 managers made decisions about hypothetical projects. Two goals accounted for 84 percent of the explainable variance and were deemed operative goals. Furthermore, a lack of concensus concerning t... View full abstract»

    The professional needs of engineering personnel are investigated. Their degree of satisfaction is positively associated with overall engineering performance. All of the 16 specific needs analyzed involve 3 primary issues: 1) people skills, 2) organizational structure, and 3) management style, influenced by the task to be performed and the surrounding environment. To be effective, engineering manag... View full abstract»

    Developing Managerial Skills in Engineers and Scientists: Succeeding as a Technical Manager is addressed to engineers, scientists, technical executives, managers, supervisors, and students of engineering and R&D management who wish to become better managers. It is, for the most part, a book on managing rather than a book about management. It takes a broad view of managing as an occupation, ... View full abstract»
