Abstract

This work in progress discusses the effectiveness of "pictures," reviews methods used in preparing this paper (and which are proposed for use by managers and engineers in building their own picture collections for communicating with one another), and provides examples. Supplementing their use in communication is the value of pictorial symbols in decision making and problem solving. This paper is expected to be more enlightening than controversial, and it may lead some in the audience to retrieve their own past experiences with slides or chalk talks and put them in a picture file of their own for future use.
