This new text provides an introduction to management for engineering students and professional engineers moving into the area of management. It does not attempt to provide an integrated approach to management as this would be unconvincing and divorced from management as it is currently practised. It does, however, provide appropriate links and aims to make intelligible the structure of organizations, the thinking of the managers operating within them, the procedures they can adopt to tackle the ...

This paper reports a case-study investigation into the economic desirability of generating hydroelectric power from the River Stour for Canford School, Dorset, as part of a larger feasibility study, which won a 1985 Molins Design Prize. A parametric discounting approach to net present-value assessment was used to examine the economic benefits of installing a small run-of-river hydropower scheme. Sensitivity analysis was used to clarify the effects of uncertainties in the limited cost and rate da...

Abstract This paper demonstrates the flexibility of a command and control modelling approach based upon system structure. The approach is part of a broader scheme for command and control modelling. Qualitative models of four different naval command and control systems are presented: a shipboard Anti-Air Warfare Section; a Type 42 destroyer; a shipboard weapons system; and a Maritime Headquarters unit. The common modelling framework allows the systems to be compared.

This paper describes a risk analysis undertaken for a consortium of engineering consulting firms who were favoured bidders for a turn-key thermal electric power project in the Middle East. The risk analysis pursued two areas: the development of a cash-flow model for the project; and the development of an understanding of project risk in qualitative terms with respect to individual sources of risk and their combined effect. Integration of these two areas produced results which demonstrated a rela...

This paper discusses a risk analysis study which considered the best way to cross a river with a large diameter gas pipeline, one possibility being a bridge carrying a large diameter oil line. About 30 ‘riskateers’ were involved, over a 3-month period, most of whom were engineers or economists with no risk analysis, O.R. or systems experience. A large number of interested parties were involved, with different perspectives. The paper stresses methodology design as an organizational vehicle, and t...

Credit policies are shown to be important in the basic economic order quantity inventory model. An economic order quantity model is derived which explicitly considers possible credit periods allowed by suppliers. This model is shown to be very sensitive to the length of the credit period, and to the relationship between the credit period and inventory level. It is also shown to be more sensitive to estimates of demand for inventory items and less sensitive to order costs than the basic economic ...

A decision situation and model-specific O.R. method developed for reliability analysis of an Arctic liquid natural gas facility is outlined. It was developed by modifying a decision situation and model-specific O.R. method developed earlier for time (schedule or programme) risk analysis of offshore North Sea projects. The role and value of such methods is discussed in relation to general O.R. methods and specific techniques like C.P.M./PERT.

Abstract This paper describes the development of risk analysis models for a variety of clients and problems over the past eight years, in terms of relationships between perceived problems and the structure of the models used, using contentions or statements of prejudice prior to and after each study. It begins with a situation involving seismic risk to nuclear power stations. En route it considers Arctic pipeline labour availability and consequential cost and time (duration, programme or schedul...
