Abstract : The various graphical and mathematical techniques available for controlling research and development projects are considered in relation to the needs of the manager of a small project. The PERT/TIME model is recommended. The implementation of PERT/TIME in the R and D field is discussed, and a brief account is given of experience gained from its use in managing the engineering development and manufacture of the data handling sub-systems of the U.K.3 satellite. Appendices are included which describe the basic PERT/TIME system and postulate operating instructions for its use. Mention is made of derivatives of the original techniques which may be of use in the future.
