Abstract:

The effective management of R and D laboratories requires a continual appraisal of what they are doing and what they should be doing. To rectify some of the deficiencies in appraisal systems, the laboratory resources data base was developed to provide comparative statistical and trend data on the characteristics and performance of laboratories. Professional technical people with a substantial degree of industrial, university, or Federal laboratory experience - mostly in the management of R and D programs and organizations - were asked to rank the laboratories according to their opinion of a laboratorys ability to perform its assigned mission. Findings are discussed.
