The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, in conjunction with Drexel University, engaged in a research effort directed toward an improved understanding of large-scale systems technology and management. This research program has as its major objectives: (1) the demonstration of the applicability of the NASA organization and management experience to the solution of large-scale public administration problems; (2) the expansion of the university's research competence in this area, as well as strengthening the faculty and curriculum of the university; and (3) the generalization of the knowledge gained in this demonstration project to other similar large-scale problems of concern to the nation. Included in this document is background information on the program with initial results, research organization, academic and research program, and the multidisciplinary team approach. Section 2 contains the action research and methodology; Section 3, the Site Selection, Entry and Project Assignments; Action Research Projects and Client Feedback are included in Section 4, and conclusions are presented in Section 5.
