Abstract

The Institution of Chemical Engineers sponsored this series of lectures on the information programmes of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Engineers Joint Council, and other organizations of interest to those in science and technology. The Institution has been interested in these developments and wants to assess what role it should play in the processing of technical information. From the trends of these organizations and from the developments in equipment and microforms patterns are emerging which will help the information officer in his work.

Abstract

A major event which is likely to have a considerable impact on engineering libraries and librarians is the inauguration (January 1, 1980) of the American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES), which, as a central organization representing the engineering profession, will now consolidate and augment the work hitherto handled by the Engineers Joint Council, Engineering Council for Professional Development and Association for Cooperation in Engineering. This is primarily looked upon as a device to enable engineering societies to communicate with each other more effectively. A unique feature of the AAES will be one of its autonomous groups, the Accreditation Commission for Engineering and Technology (ACET). The collection and dissemination of data on matters like engineering manpower and continuing education, until now handled by bodies like the EJC, will be entrusted to ACET.

Abstract

Purpose

The research in this paper is aimed at re‐engineering existing approaches to the analysis of proposed developments in local authorities – from land pricing to planning permission – hence reducing the loss of revenue in councils, and nurture property development.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper is a case study of seven city councils on the Copperbelt province of Zambia was conducted using the same template of questions.

Findings

The research found that councils had overly politicised management structure, static appraisal methods, poor market data capture, analysis and use. Additionally, councils did not use market data on property values; hence the existing analysis and appraisal systems are static and ineffective.

Research limitations/implications

The paper shows that extracting current data from the councils proved a severe limitation.

Practical implications

The paper shows that councils can: learn how overly politicised their interdepartmental communication and data exchange is; enhance paper based systems of appraising proposed developments by adding established methods of project appraisal that can ease the collection, analysis and synthesis of construction business data used in the appraisal process; Employ, and support qualified personnel with adequate resources necessary to perform their duties professionally; make gradual improvements to existing systems within the cultural and political atmosphere of the council; and appraise proposed developments using accepted business approaches; just like private sector consultants do.

Originality/value

The research provides practical solutions that enhance professional appraisal techniques in councils of most underdeveloped countries, hence setting the basis upon which market driven strategies for nurturing property development can be made

Abstract

A gloomy picture of the state of engineering education in British universities is painted by statistics published in recent months. So few school leavers appear to be attracted by the prospect of becoming engineers that university places go begging for want of suitably qualified candidates. The overall standards of those who do get in are so low that one in every five students leaves or is sent down without gaining a degree. And the gloomy picture does not end there. About 40 per cent of those engineers who do graduate each year join the Brain Drain to America, leaving Britain with the serious worry not only of how to keep abreast of new developments but of how to innovate in a period of rapid technological change when an increasingly high proportion of its intelligent young people either don't want to become engineers or else don't want to be engineers in Britain.
