"Forecasting and Management of Technology" discusses the planning, operation, analysis and control of complex technological systems and new technology. The book covers the fundamentals for long term planning, development and production of new products and shows how technologies are developed and complex products produced which require a co-ordinated effort involving engineering, organization and project management. It describes how the resources of a firm are to be utilized and focused to the greatest advantage of the company through product development. Practical methods that industrial managers can apply to their own needs are emphasized throughout the text. A software package is also available that will solve the very complex real-life forecasting problems.
