    This paper extends the analysis of supplier development investments to a triadic setting where a second buying firm also invests in the development of a supplier. The analysis of buying firms' cost-based decision of the optimal supplier development investment shows that noncooperation between the two buying firms leads to higher total development investments than cooperation. Hence, the decision t... View full abstract»

    We study the problem of optimally integrating contractual and spot market procurement sources for a risk-averse buying firm that purchases a commodity product at a specified rate over time. The sources involve deterministic and stochastic price processes, respectively. The risk-averse firm is concerned about the magnitude and uncertainty of procurement expenses. The problem is of increasing signif... View full abstract»

    Heterogeneous knowledge sources may have decreasing returns for innovation performance. While scholars have widely examined the effect of knowledge heterogeneity (KH) on innovation performance, little has been done to explore the differences between external and internal KH, and to integrate these two sources of KH. This study examines the independent and combined effects (the multiplicative and b... View full abstract»

    Because of more and more complexity of an operation environment in today's industrial production process, it is difficult to monitor the process operation quality and to estimate the performance efficiency based on the existing mathematical model and knowledge. This paper proposes a new method to estimate the process capability, and a new criterion for capability and performance assessment. This m... View full abstract»

    Maintenance service outsourcing is a strategic driver for asset intensive industries pursuing the enhancement of supply chain performance. Maintenance service supplier selection plays a relevant role in this premise since its significant impact on equipment availability, and hence, on business success. To periodically review suppliers' performances and update the outsourcing contract, a discrete s... View full abstract»

  • Construction Material Safety-Stock Determination Under Nonstationary Stochastic Demand and Random Supply Yield

    Nonstationary stochastic demand and random supply yield have led to a great challenge in construction material management. Appropriate safety stocks can cope with uncertainty in both demand and supply yield, and improve the construction cost and productivity significantly. But the safety stock is usually determined by planner's experience or rough evaluation in management practice, which results i... View full abstract»

  • The Individual Environment Nexus: Impact of Promotion Focus and the Environment on Academic Scientists’ Entrepreneurial Intentions

    Using a sample of academic scientists, we show that promotion focus interacts with the work and family environments to predict academic scientists' entrepreneurial intentions. Concretely, we find that the relationship between promotion focus and entrepreneurial intentions is particularly strong when scientists' parents have owned a business and when they work in laboratories with more industry-fin...

  • Multiobjective Optimization for Multiperiod Reverse Logistics Network Design

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    In recent years, the ever-rising return streams for repair service have forced the electronics manufacturers to expand their reverse logistics capacities. However, most existing papers on the reverse logistics network design neglected the time sensitivity of the return flows. Moreover, most of these investigations were primarily concerned with the single objective problems of either minimizing the... View full abstract»

    In practice, product design decisions in a buyer-supplier setting can be either centralized or decentralized. Yet, it is unclear in what circumstances either of these settings can result in higher new product performance. In this study, we show that the choice of the level of centralization of product design decisions should be made contingent to the product complexity and behavioral factors of pr...

    Early supplier involvement (ESI) infuses upfront supplier resources and expertise to accelerate the research and development (R&D) timeline, and allow for risk sharing. Successful implementation of ESI in a new product development setting, however, remains elusive due to the intricacy of interfirm collaboration while dealing with unproven technology and market uncertainty. Extending from prior ESI... View full abstract»

    The vehicle routing problem is one of the most important and well-known issues that is considered by researchers in recent years. There are some vital or expensive shipments, such as fuel shipments, vehicles carrying money, prisoner transfer vehicles, and so on, that are being assassinated by some interdictors. The problem of routing in these kinds of shipments is more complicated in comparison wi... View full abstract»
