Abstract : The problems of planning scientific research (henceforth research and development) and experimental design work have not as yet been satisfactorily illuminated in the economic literature. The book by M. L. Bashin is an attempt to correlate the experience in planning and accounting of the leading research and development and design organizations of those machine-building and instrument-making industries which are now profit-oriented. This experience pertains to planning and accounting of research and development and experimental design work. The book examines the sequence of developing and approving long-range and annual project plans, typical project stages, methodology of topic project planning, and calculations of the labor time which goes into the work and production estimates. It also illuminates the problems of planning the work of programming departments, laboratories, pilot plants, information services of research institutes and design offices. The book utilizes the available instruction materials.
