Abstract:

A formulation and digital computer program is presented as a management tool to allocate the budget of a research organization. The value of a specific research task is defined and an optimization technique is employed to maximize the total value achieved for a given yearly budget constraint of the organization. A maximum of 250 research tasks may be considered. The program performs a yearly optimization for up to five years. It generates a number of reports which indicate the progress of each research task during the given time period and the effect of this progress on other organizational entities.
