The scope and complexity of engineering responsibilities have dramatically changed during the past 20 years. Stiff competition in the marketplace and the need to increase productivity in manufacturing and service delivery have put an emphasis on better management of technical functions of a company. In addition, in the last decade, many companies have reduced the numbers and levels of management positions and given more decision-making authority to teams at the working level, moving to management responsibilities many engineers at some point in their professional careers. As a consequence, engineers perform many management activities in the modern companies. However - bridging the gap between engineering and management - engineering management differs from ordinary management as the engineering managers differ from managers since they possess both the ability to apply engineering principles and the skills for organising and directing people and projects. IJEME is a refereed and authoritative journal aimed at bridging the latest advances in the engineering management and engineering economics areas with a multidisciplinary perspective.
