    In this investigation, it was proposed that achieving a fit between coordination requirements and the institution of optimal modes and levels of integration will result in optimal patterns of information processing, but will not necessarily minimize coordination problems or deficiencies. Data were collected at three time intervals from engineers and scientists working in 24 department of defense p... View full abstract»

    When the final tally was in, the year 2000 (Y2K) software compliance issue had cost over a hundred billion dollars worldwide. The fact that essentially everyone was busy tackling the same problem provided a unique opportunity to use data envelopment analysis (DEA) to measure software team efficiency and productivity. The data set analyzed in this paper contained about 70 programs from a large Cana... View full abstract»

    This paper considers the upstream flow of product attribute forecast information often used to drive the technology planning process. It is noted that, while downstream customers are willing to pay for improvements in key product attributes, they do not always provide accurate and timely product attribute forecasts to upstream suppliers. As a result of this increasing distortion of product attribu... View full abstract»

    Transportation project selection is one of the most important planning activities encountered by a government, especially in a developing city. In this paper, we explore the potential of applying the analytic network process (ANP) to evaluate transportation projects in Ningbo, China. ANP differs from traditional hierarchical analysis tools in that it allows feedback and interdependence among vario... View full abstract»

    A key issue in enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation is how to find a match between the ERP system and an organization's business processes by appropriately customizing both the system and the organization. In this paper, we advance a framework for supporting management decision-making about customization choices and the capabilities required to accomplish them. In this framework, we i...

    Business process reengineering (BPR) has made a significant impact on managers and academics. Despite the rhetoric surrounding BPR, articulated mechanisms, which support reasoning on the effect of the redesign activities to the performance of the business model, are still emerging. This paper describes an attempt to build and operate such a reasoning mechanism as a novel supplement to performance-... View full abstract»

    ISO 9000 is a management standard that provides customers with assurance that their registered suppliers have a consistent quality system to which they adhere. This paper draws on four sources to show how ISO 9000 can lead to performance improvement: 1) theories of induced innovation and improvisation; 2) the literature on ISO 9000; 3) a case study of a telecom company; and 4) a survey of 1,150 No...

    This paper examines how seven process innovations have been shared and adopted (or not adopted) between four factories of a multinational company located in Asia. In contrast to most previous studies in this area, these process innovation diffusions happened in a bottom-up manner in which the decision to share and to adopt is made by the individuals at the sites involved rather than by top managem...
