Decision Making for Experiments: Using MOSFET Development as a Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
Decision making is not a topic commonly taught in academia, even though it is essential to researchers. This presentation gives an introduction on decision making in research and project management from the point of view of business and research projects. The goal is to provide a framework for beginning researchers on how to get from the start of a project towards achieving their longer-term goal. The concepts will be introduced from the point of view of running a development project in a business. Strategies to manage risk will be applied to the standard approach of breaking the problem down into the development of smaller components and to each individual component. Risk mitigation strategies will be applied to a framework on how to solve problems at the component level. All the concepts will be put together and differences between research and development will be highlighted. At the end, the concepts will be applied to the MOSFET development, as a case study, to show how one utilizes the proposed framework.
