    Link structures among items within an E-commerce Web site can be regarded as a potential recommendation that helps new consumers quickly locate relevant products. In this paper, combining a modified version of Google's PageRank method with economic analysis of word of mouth, we investigate whether a product's position within a network composed of recommendation links is incrementally informative a...

    This paper addresses the comparison and selection decision of reactive strategies for supply disruption management. We consider an assemble-to-order supply chain with one manufacturer who employs a single-sourcing strategy for each kind of component. The manufacturer assembles products for customers using components purchased from the suppliers in a just-in-time environment. Demand for the product... View full abstract»

    Predicting commercialization progress (CP) for early-stage technologies is critical for funding agencies and private equity investors. This study employed an ex-ante analysis of expert assessments on the future potential of early-stage technologies by a U.S. Department of Defense funded Technology transfer agency. We examined expert assessments of 271 technologies that were considered for funding.... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a decision analytic model to determine the optimal bidding sequence in a repeat-bid name-your-own-price (NYOP) channel. The model takes into account the impatience of the bidders, and determines the optimal bidding strategies when time intervals are enforced between successive offers. We also use the model to measure the impatience and the frictional costs exhibited by bidders ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a revenue optimization framework integrating demand learning and dynamic pricing for firms in monopoly or oligopoly markets. We introduce a state-space model for this revenue management problem, which incorporates game-theoretic demand dynamics and nonparametric techniques for estimating the evolution of underlying state variables. Under this framework, stringent model as... View full abstract»

    In the enterprise software industry, large providers (hubs) are fostering partner networks with smaller companies (spokes) that complement their platforms. This study takes the perspective of these spokes and seeks to understand their motivation to partner. It is the first to simultaneously examine two theoretical perspectives that help explain partnership formation. The input-oriented perspective... View full abstract»

  • Understanding End-Users’ Acceptance of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System in Project-Based Sectors

    This study aims at providing an alternative view of users' enterprise resource planning (ERP) acceptance. Despite the large body of literature, there are still empirical inquiries to investigate the ERP system implementation from end-users' perspectives as well as from different organizational contexts. To address these issues, we set a project-based sector as our population of interest and seek t... View full abstract»

  • Employees’ Break-offs and Location Selection: The Birth of Industrial Clusters

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Empirical observation suggests that several industrial clusters originate from employees who break off and locate their new firms close to former employers. The reasons for such a choice are complex and include a variety of costs' considerations. We present a two-player three-stage simultaneous game with interdependent decisions concerning break-offs, deterrent compensations, location, and profit-... View full abstract»

    Complexity measures can be used as a yardstick for budgeting, resource allocation, and planning in enterprise maintenance projects. Maintenance projects have two primary areas of complexity (i.e., technical and managerial aspects) that may not be measured precisely due to uncertain situations. In this study, a fuzzy graph-based model to measure the relative complexity of projects is presented that... View full abstract»

    Analyzing mobile telephony diffusion involves identifying drivers and forecasting growth using a growth model. However, to our knowledge, no framework for model selection exists. To eliminate ad hoc model selection, this study presents a novel model-comparison method based on an analysis of mobile telephony diffusion in China, which accounts for one-fifth of global mobile telephony subscriptions. ...

  • Optimal Feed-in Tariff Schedules

    We analyze the design of optimal feed-in tariff schedules under production-based learning. We examine least cost policies in a simple two-period model that focuses on bringing down the levelized cost of renewable technologies to a predefined target under two well-known dynamics: learning-by-doing (LBD) and economies of scale (EOS). We show that, when the levelized cost reduction target is stringen... View full abstract»

  • Instilling the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Your R&D Team: What Large Firms Can Learn from Successful Start-ups

    Prior research studies have found that even though new ventures face the possibility of bankruptcy without large product portfolios on which to fall back, they are more innovative than large firms. Large, established firms have become experts at implementing best practices as a way to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of costly R&D. Yet in practice, relying upon these routine paradigms... View full abstract»
