DEVELOPMENT OF AN ANNUAL RESEARCH PROGRAM

A PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED IN WHICH AN ANNUAL REQUEST FOR RESEARCH STUDIES IS SENT THROUGHT THE DEPARTMENT. THIS IS SUPPLEMENTED BY 2 OR 3 REMINDERS A YEAR (IN THE MONTHLY DEPARTMENT NEWSLETTER). THIS PROCESS GENERATES SUGGESTIONS WHICH ARE THEN EVALUATED FOR APPROPRIATENESS FOR IN-HOUSE RESEARCH. A RESEARCH LIAISON REPRESENTATIVE SELECTED BY THE PROGRAM MANAGER, WORKS WITH THE RESEARCHERS IN EACH PROGRAM AREA. A RESEARCH NEEDS STATEMENT IS PREPARED (IN COOPERATION WITH THE LIASON REPRESENTATIVE), WHICH DEFINES THE PROBLEM, STATES THE OBJECTIVES, AND OUTLINES THE IMPLEMENTATION. BENEFITS EXPECTED FROM THE STUDY, AND THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR THE STUDY ARE ALSO REVIEWED. THIS STATEMENT WHICH CAN BE OF GREAT ASSISTANCE IS PREPARED WITH THE AID OF LITERATURE SEARCHES CONDUCTED BY RESEARCH ENGINEERS. A SAMPLE ENGINEERING RESEARCH PROGRAM IS INCLUDED.
