Digital Equipment Corp.: The VT320 Video Text Terminal

By Karen J. Freeze, Director of Research, Design Management Institute

Highlights the role of the project manager in the product development process while presenting a detailed treatment of the design function at a major computer manufacturer. The project manager needs to harness varied talents together and keep them focused on a clear target for this highly cost- and time-sensitive product. An added challenge is the international nature of the project: design is in the United States, engineering and manufacturing in Taiwan. Several design issues and other problems confront the project manager at once, and he needs to prioritize them and motivate his product development team to solve them under intense pressure. Also available: Supplement (9-992-031), Supplement (9-991-034), and Teaching Note (5-992-032).
