In this paper a quantitative model of process management is introduced for the continuous period focusing on the process until end of new business development from starting early research stage after idea creation. Many of researches have been done as a microscopic approach to understand the R&D management for many years. They focused on specific aspects of R&D to understand clearly, such as organization, leadership, process management, etc. It is quite difficult to overview the whole progress… Expand

Opening the Door for the New Methodology for Optimizing Functional Material Development in Technology Management Framework II
A research study of the R&D management from various kinds of focus and scope has been done for many years. Especially, it has been quite difficult to explain the research & development project statusExpand
Opening the door for the new methodology for optimizing functional material development in technology management framework
This paper expressed the state of the research and development process by means of quantitative physical model as modified magnetic model and defined the R&D project as dynamic model and estimated interactions among internal elements within the company. Expand
Novel Validation Method for the R&D Project Status Visualization
This paper attempts to understand the R&D project current state by the visualization of Physics model simulation and finds that it is likely to be able to add new findings based on quantitative data analysis by text mining to the conventional evaluation method. Expand

A six-dimensional quantitative analytical model (based on the Ising model, a physical phase transition model) that can be applied to the state of technology management activities with respect to the wider business context is presented. Expand
A structural equation model of the impact of the “fuzzy front end” on the success of new product development
A conceptual model of relationships among key variables related to the fuzzy front end, project execution, and project success indicated that efforts spent on the reduction of uncertainty to improve project execution and success may be influenced by the degree of newness of new product concepts.

The Effect of 'Front-Loading' Problem-Solving on Product Development Performance
The authors propose that front-loading can be achieved using a number of different approaches, two of which are discussed in detail: project-to-project knowledge transfer—leverage previous projects by transferring problem and solution-specific information to new projects; and rapid problem-solving —leverage advanced technologies and methods to increase the overall rate at which development problems are identified and solved.
