Assessing advanced engineering technologies

International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 14, No. 2/3/4, 1997

Abstract: The process of evaluating new technologies significantly affects their development, diffusion and adoption. While academic literature reviews on the assessment of advanced manufacturing technologies have been completed, there is insufficient understanding of the actual processes for evaluating advanced engineering technologies in the professional world. This paper reports on the results of a survey of US engineering managers and their knowledge, experiences and perceptions of the process by which advanced engineering technologies are evaluated in their firms, and compares these results with those of prior, notable surveys. The engineering managers surveyed are members of the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM) which generously pre-screened and provided the member database.
