Today's typical probabilistic cost analysis assumes an "ideal" project that is devoid of the human and organizational considerations that heavily influence the success and cost of real-world projects. In the real world " Money Allocated Is Money Spent " (MAIMS principle); cost underruns are rarely available to protect against cost overruns while task(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and assess CytoView, a prototype computer image-based cytology proficiency testing (PT) system, as an alternative to glass-slide cervical cytology PT. STUDY DESIGN The computer-based PT consists of 10 cases taken from 10 Pap smears, each of which had received a consensus Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments-category diagnosis(More)
This paper presents a realistic and practical approach to quantitatively assess the risk-reduction capabilities of military counterterrorism systems in terms of damage cost and casualty figures. The comparison of alternatives is thereby based on absolute quantities rather than an aggregated utility or value provided by multicriteria decision analysis(More)
TelePath(SM) a telerobotic system utilizing virtual microscope concepts based on high quality still digital imaging and aimed at real-time support for surgery by remote diagnosis of frozen sections. Many hospitals and clinics have an application for the remote practice of pathology, particularly in the area of reading frozen sections in support of surgery,(More)
Today's typical probabilistic cost analysis assumes an "ideal" project in which whenever a cost element comes in low its savings are passed on where they are needed. Unfortunately in the real world " Money Allocated is Money Spent" (MAIMS principle), and cost underruns are rarely available to protect against cost overruns while task overruns are passed on(More)
