    Knowledge repository systems (KRSs) have gained popularity for enabling knowledge codification and reuse. This paper develops and tests a model of KRS success, including perceived KRS searchability, perceived KRS output quality, perceived usefulness, and user satisfaction, and examines how three aspects of social context (extrinsic rewards, intrinsic rewards, and organizational trust) affect these...

    This paper proposes a model to analyze joint R&D projects from a systemic approach. We argue that joint R&D projects are an economic and organizational reality that can be studied through their two principal aspects: from the perspective of the process developed to fulfill the objectives of the project and from the point of view of the network of partners constituted to undertake the proje...

    Investment decisions in new aircraft development programs are difficult because of large capital expenditures, long lead times, and many technical and market uncertainties. A flexible strategy, that takes advantage of the ability of managers to incorporate information as uncertainties are resolved, is suggested as a means to manage risk. In this paper, the use of real options analysis to evaluate ... View full abstract»

  • Repeat Bidding on Internet-Based Multiple-Item “Name-Your-Own-Price” Auctions

    Name-your-own-price (NYOP) auctions have gained recent popularity on the Internet. In many NYOP settings, the auction firm displays multiple bidding items for the bidders (such as multiple options of airline tickets) and restricts them to place a single offer. Recent studies have, however, shown that the Internet environment enables many customers to engage in repeat bidding. Our purpose in this p... View full abstract»

    It is an established fact that projects are almost always behind schedule. Consequently, there is a great need for the allocation of additional resources with a view to accelerating projects, so as to ensure delivery on the planned date. These resources are obtained from project budget contingency, whose purpose is to foresee and budget for delays arising from disruptions, inaccurate activity time... View full abstract»

  • A Contextual Approach to Improving Software Metrics Practices

    Even though empirical studies report less than satisfactory results with software metrics, we have limited knowledge on how to improve programs that are already implemented. On this backdrop, we report from a three-year collaborative action research project in Software, Inc., aimed at increasing the benefits of their metrics program. The perceived challenge was not to improve individual metrics, b... View full abstract»

  • A Cost Sharing Warranty Policy for Products With Deterioration

    Warranties play an important role for marketing products in the intensively competitive market, since an attractive policy can dramatically increase market share. However, offering an unlimited warranty with intent to monopolize the market is unrealistic because of the extremely high cost for maintaining such a policy. This paper considers a decision problem under the policy of a pro-rata warranty... View full abstract»

  • Internal and External Dimensions of Computer Self-Efficacy: An Empirical Examination

    Researchers have found computer self-efficacy (CSE) to be important to technology adoption. Past research has treated CSE as a unitary concept. This paper proposes that CSE has two dimensions-internal and external. The idea that CSE has internal and external dimensions is based on attribution theory, which identifies the human tendency to attribute events to causes that are either internal or exte...
