N-01 Management of aeronautical technology and engineering

This paper identifies some of the unique problems experienced by
the aeronautical sector and assesses the common key factors for
success. The theme is that these factors, the desired outcomes
such as safety and quality, can be improved by applying best
practice management and by using assessment tools. Yet the use of
a single model or standard is not sufficient to generate an integrated
management strategy. The motives for pursuing an integrated
strategy must be analysed, articulated to and supported by the entire

Recent Developments

Over the last 30 years, small teams of engineers and businessmen have worked to develop the airship concept.  Using advances in engineering techniques, improved materials and practical innovation these groups have tested new ideas, and in many cases re-discovered concepts that have lain dormant until the materials sciences could catch up.  Occasionally larger corporations or government departments put some effort in to projects to investigate the state of the market; but shifting personnel, budgetary constraints and a lack of immediate need, have usually closed down these projects
