Using Analog Models based in Physical Systems for Technology Management Processes

Vega-González Luis Roberto


The empirical management work done in research, development and innovation projects (R & D + I) conducted at the liaison and technology transfer office of a public Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, from Spanish), allowed us to identify discrete management processes. The objective of this work was to present some of these processes, through the elaboration of pragmatic analog models based in physical systems. Models presented can help students, novices and other professionals to understand the way in which these processes are carried out. This eventually will make their learning more efficient and improve the way in which they address the management problems. We conclude that by complementing the professional and individual empirical views with technical, organizational and societal perspectives, it is possible to obtain useful knowledge from building and developing analog models which represent reality. Finally, complementing the models with a good management theoretical dose will provide good technology management practitioners for all kind of institutions.
