R&D Project Control System.
Wilkinson, Gene L.
The recurrence of problems in connection with research and development (R and D) activities supported by the Audio-Visual Center of Indiana University led to the development of a proposed control system. This paper lists those problems and examines the assumptions which must be met by the control system--that the Center will support all types of R and D activities, that there should be a single control process for all R and D projects, that there is a fundamental distinction between production and development activities, that all members of the staff are fully programed, that ideas and proposals for activities from individuals other than staff will be accepted and supported, and that there are a number of points at which the Center might wish to begin support of a promising idea. A basic model of the proposed control system is presented and detailed according to each of its three major stages: Stage I dealing with generation and initial screening of ideas, Stage II dealing with development and generation of initial screening of ideas, and Stage III covering project execution and control.
