Pagination or Media Count:
A research and development program prioritization process proposed by the Marine Corps Development and Education Command is investigated. Relevant literature is reviewed and the process classified with the majority of accepted industrial program selection models. Linear programming formulations of the process illustrate resource allocation improvements suggested by the literature. Two linear programming approaches are demonstrated with available process test data. The subjective research and development program values proposed by the original process are discussed in terms of measurement scale properties, and further research is suggested in the areas of alternative model forms, subjective program evaluations, and model implementation cost-benefit analysis.
