• Cost of maintaining this form in a multiproduct company would be prohibitive due to duplication of effort, facilities, and personnel; inefficient usage.

• A tendency to retain personnel on a project long after they are needed. Upper-level management must balance workloads as projects start up and are phased out.

• Control of functional (i.e., organizational) specialists requires top-level coordination.

• Lack of opportunities for technical interchange between projects.

• Lack of career continuity and opportunities for project personnel.
