    In concurrent engineering, project tasks generally involve the establishment of multifunctional design teams in order to simultaneously consider various activities throughout the entire product life cycle. Team members from different functional departments of the company interact in every phase of development tasks to design the products and processes concurrently. To ensure a successful multifunc...

    In this paper, we examine the impact of just-in-time (JIT) implementation and International Standards Organization (ISO) 9000 certification (as specified by the original standards of the early 1990s) on quality management efforts of manufacturing firms. Responding firms in the study were grouped into four categories based on their ISO 9000 and JIT orientation: 1) firms that are ISO 9000 certified ... View full abstract»

  • The product life cycle theory and product line management: the case of mobile phones

    This paper applies the product life cycle theory to the issue of product line management with two goals in mind: 1) to understand how product line management evolves over the life of an industry and 2) to compare Klepper's model (1986), which emphasizes economies of scale, with the traditional model of the product life cycle, which emphasizes dominant designs. We find that Klepper's model of the p... View full abstract»

  • An exploration of the adoption of E-auctions in supply management

    Increasingly, reverse e-auctions are replacing traditional competitive bidding for sourcing decisions. Using the Internet, reverse e-auctions allow suppliers to compete dynamically, in real-time, for a buyer's business. During a reverse e-auction, suppliers submit multiple electronic bids over a fixed time period, often 30 min or less. Typically, the price of the item or service being purchased dr...

  • A composite model of product development effectiveness: application to services

    This paper explores the extent to which an enlarged, generic version of a "composite" model of concurrent product development previously tested for goods industries also applies to services. The model is comprised of four types of building blocks commonly used in theories of organization design. The operating core of the model includes a troika of practice sets dealing with the organization of cro... View full abstract»

  • The underlying event model for approximating probabilistic dependence among binary events

    This paper presents a model for approximating positive probabilistic dependence among binary (success/failure) events in decision, economic evaluation, and risk analysis problems. It is not always feasible to obtain the probabilities needed to completely specify the joint probability structure among the binary events in real-world problems, so simplifying assumptions such as independence that requ...

  • Organizational warning systems: a probabilistic approach to optimal design

    The optimization of warning systems includes the choice of signals to be monitored, the sensitivity of the alert level and the response to these signals. In organizations that design or manage complex, risk-critical systems, the problem is not only the observation of a signal, but also its accurate communication to the appropriate decision maker, and the actions that he or she can take upon receiv...

    The screening of a new product concept is perhaps the most critical activity in new product development (NPD), yet such screening is often not adequately performed. Limited by both the nature and the timing of NPD, new product screening is associated with uncertainty and complexity. This paper presents and discusses an actual illustration of a new product screening analysis performed in the develo... View full abstract»

    Successful benchmarking can improve a company's return on investment (ROI) ratio, facilitate cost reductions, identify new business opportunities, and help develop market competitiveness. However, there is limited evidence to understand factors that contribute to successful outcomes during benchmarking. This paper tests a sequential framework that identifies the key constituents of successful benc... View full abstract»

    This paper examines the evolution of the role, structure, and orientation of SEMATECH in supporting the competitiveness of U.S. semiconductor industry between the late 1980s and the late 1990s. SEMATECH overcame its early challenges and succeeded by shifting its emphasis from horizontal (competitive) to vertical (precompetitive) collaboration, and then to a combined horizontal/vertical form (compe...

  • A note on "An empirical comparison of forgetting models"

    In the above paper, Nembhard and Osothsilp (2001) empirically compared several forgetting models against empirical data on production breaks. Among the models compared was the learn-forget curve model (LFCM) developed by Jaber and Bonney(1996). In previous research, several studies have shown that the LFCM is advantageous to some of the models being investigated, however, Nembhard and Osothsilp (2... View full abstract»

    The modeling of human learning and forgetting has justifiably received increased attention in recent years. The ability to bridge the gap between the findings of experimentalists and empiricists in this area should allow for the research community to develop ever-improving models. In their research note Jaber and Sikstrom (see ibid., vol.51, no.2, p.233-4, 2004) raise an important issue, namely th... View full abstract»
