    Technology projects today are being increasingly executed in project sourcing structures that span country boundaries. However, the performance implications of such offshoring efforts are often ambiguous vis-à-vis those that are executed within country boundaries. Further, little is known about project execution capabilities that may be central to improving the performance of offshore tech... View full abstract»

    In order to maximize the value of an organization's data assets, it is important to keep data in its databases up-to-date. In the era of big data, however, constantly changing data sources make it a challenging task to assure data timeliness in enterprise systems. For instance, due to the high frequency of purchase transactions, purchase data stored in an enterprise resource planning system can ea... View full abstract»

  • Risk-Based Comparison of Consolidated and Distributed Satellite Systems

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2681 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Governments and large private satellite operators face a strategic decision for multipayload satellite programs: whether to use large consolidated satellites with multiple payloads or constellations of a few smaller spacecraft (here a “distributed” system). One advantage of the latter is that it allows faster replacement of failed payloads and more efficient insertion of new technolo... View full abstract»

  • Product Line Design and Outsourcing Strategies in Dyadic Supply Chains

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):316 - 326
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (495 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    Motivated by the practices of product design and production outsourcing, we develop a game-theoretic model of a dyadic supply chain to study the joint decisions on product line design and outsourcing. We derive equilibrium decisions on product quality levels and identify the conditions under which the manufacturer outsources production. We first study the case of symmetric outsourcing where the ma... View full abstract»

  • A Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem With Synchronized Pick-Ups and Drop-Offs: The Case of Medication Delivery and Supervision in the DR Congo

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):327 - 336
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (530 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In postemergency contexts such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo), one of the crucial challenges that rural hospitals face is maintaining a pharmacy with essential medications and supplies. There is a negative humanitarian impact when hospitals do not have medications for treatable diseases; hospitals incur financial losses when too much medication is ordered and expires. Moreover, the... View full abstract»

  • The Emergence and Collapse of Knowledge Boundaries

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (451 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The dynamics of knowledge transfer is an important topic for engineering managers. In this paper, we study knowledge boundaries-barriers to knowledge transfer-in groups of experts, using topic modeling, a natural language processing technique, applied to transcript data from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Circulatory Systems Advisory Panel. As predicted by prior theory, we find that knowl... View full abstract»

  • Alignment Between Internal and External IT Governance and Its Effects on Distinctive Firm Performance: An Extended Resource-Based View

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):351 - 364
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (356 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Only a few firms possess all of the information technology (IT) resources required to compete effectively in today's dynamic business environment. Consequently, firms face critical challenges in developing their IT governance by integrating, building, and reconfiguring IT resources available internally and externally to achieve a competitive advantage. However, prior studies have mostly examined I... View full abstract»

  • Improving Quality of Care Through Integration in a Hospital Setting: A Human Systems Integration Approach

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):365 - 376
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (269 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    While many studies suggest that integration is positively associated with improved quality of care, others assert that this may not be so. The inconsistent success of integration to improve performance is not limited to healthcare operations, but is prevalent in operations and engineering management in general. We suggest that this inconsistency exists because many integration studies examine tech... View full abstract»

  • Synergy, Tensions, and Smart Power Strategies: How to Effectively Implement a Dual Business Model in Product Management

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):377 - 388
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1162 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    We examine how product suppliers can effectively implement brand-and-original equipment manufacturing dual business models by investigating the synergy and tensions generated during different phases of implementation, and providing strategies for increasing synergy and reducing tensions. We conduct a longitudinal case study of an electronic supplier's various products. We find that during the seek... View full abstract»

  • Crossing the Valley of Death—An Integrated Framework and a Value Chain for Emerging Technologies

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):389 - 399
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (822 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The paper develops an integrated technology-push and market-pull framework, a value chain model for crossing the valley of death (VOD - the gap between laboratory and market) for emerging technologies based on primary and secondary data analyses, and a survey conducted on European research and development projects. The study uses a case of micro- and nano-manufacturing technology (MNT), and confir... View full abstract»

  • Optimization for the Integrated Operations in an Uncertain Construction Supply Chain

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):400 - 414
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (782 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Large construction and infrastructure projects are a billion-dollar business, but few studies have addressed the integrated operations in this unique domain of the construction supply chain (CSC). The comparison between the CSC and a conventional supply chain enables us to examine its framework and establish a quantitative optimization model for the CSC. To introduce the integrated operations conc... View full abstract»

  • Managing User Diversity in ES Pre-Implementation Through Discursive Framing: A Spatiotemporal Analysis

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):415 - 427
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (300 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Discursive strategy is important in engaging users when an organization-wide strategic change, such as an enterprise system (ES), is introduced. Although some information system (IS) studies have suggested the use of discursive framing, little is known about how such framing is conducted. Hence, our study aims to conceptualize discursive framing strategies by taking into account user diversity. A ... View full abstract»
