    Using the knowledge-based view of the firm as our theoretical underpinning, we study partnerships between industrial firms and university research centers (URCs) in order to identify facilitators of knowledge transfer, particularly focusing on how firms learn from URCs. Data for this study were obtained from senior-level executives from a random sample of one hundred and seventy-three firms locate... View full abstract»

    As a new network computing technology, Web services help reduce application integration cost and have become the foundation for the next generation of service-oriented architecture. While there is ample research on the technological issues of Web services, little has been done thus far on the business implications of this groundbreaking technology. In this paper, we attempt to close this research ... View full abstract»

  • Incorporating Quality Considerations Into Project Time/Cost Tradeoff Analysis and Decision Making

    Existing models and methods of project scheduling implicitly assume uniform quality when evaluating time/cost tradeoffs, but do not model quality explicitly. For a project manager such as a general contractor who subcontracts most tasks of a project, or other project managers who face decisions concerning the level of quality to perform for each task, this is not a realistic assumption. In this pa... View full abstract»

    Literature suggests that new product development (NPD) is critical for industrial firms to gain a competitive advantage. Intriguingly, the systematic application of NPD tools in industry, despite the extensive effort that has been invested and the benefits that can be obtained, remains mostly uncommon. By conducting ten semi-structured interviews with selected academics and industrialists and usin... View full abstract»

    The turn of the century has seen a rapidly graying population concurrently with increasingly ubiquitous information technology (IT). The elderly population being less familiar with IT implies that issues pertaining to their acceptance of information systems (IS) deserve special attention. However, the IS and gerontology literatures seldom explore IS acceptance among the aged. Attempting to address... View full abstract»

    Many models of Product Development (PD) are concerned with managing the decomposition and integration of tasks, teams and subsystems transforming a conceptual idea into a finished product. Specifically, a PD process is formed of cross-functional teams continuously exchanging information on specified tasks to integrate the product's final structure. Recently, it has been shown that large PD network... View full abstract»

    Maintenance consumes the majority of software's lifecycle resources. Factors affecting the maintenance phase are of practical concern to systems developers and users, but only a few of those factors are under direct control of the project manager. Modeling formalisms are generally touted for their impacts on the development of software; however their impact on maintenance is less discussed and les... View full abstract»
