    Technological innovation drives economic growth, and the pioneering activity of scientists and engineers produce technological innovation. We provide a mathematical model of pioneering strategic choice by adopting a perspective familiar to microeconomics, but less common in the engineering management literature. Instead of focusing on the specific features of a pioneer's technology, we focus on th... View full abstract»

  • The Bullwhip Effect in an Online Retail Supply Chain: A Perspective of Price-Sensitive Demand Based on the Price Discount in E-Commerce

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):134 - 148

    This paper investigates the difference in bullwhip effects in online and offline retail supply chains, offering insights into how frequent price discounts in e-commerce influence the bullwhip effect in the online retail supply chain. We consider a two-level online retail supply chain with a manufacturer and an online retailer in which the demand faced by the retailer is price sensitive and based o... View full abstract»

    The multiobjective permutation flow shop scheduling problem with sequence dependent setup times has been an object of investigations for decades. This widely studied problem from the scheduling theory links the sophisticated solution algorithms with the moderate real world applications. This paper presents a novel multiobjective discrete artificial bee colony algorithm based decomposition, called ... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a mathematical model and new solving algorithm for scheduling of a distributed production network with heterogeneous parallel factories distributed in the different geographical places. In this problem, two subproblems must be solved, i.e., 1) assigning jobs to appropriate factory and 2) scheduling jobs on parallel machines in each factory. We also assume that after initial ass...

    Testing is a critical activity in product development. The academic literature provides limited insight about overlapping between upstream testing and downstream design tasks, especially in considering the qualitative differences between activities that are overlapped. In general, the existing literature treats two overlapped sequential activities as similar, and suggests optimal overlapping polic... View full abstract»

    In response to fast-growing and rapidly changing global markets, launching new products faster than competitors does not only assist enterprises in acquiring a larger market share, but also in reducing development lead time. However, owing to the intrinsically uncertain properties of new product development management, manufacturing companies often struggle with the dilemma of whether to increase ... View full abstract»

    Scholars and practitioners have recently shifted their attention from traditional closed internal innovation to open innovation (OI). Building on both the resource-based view and the network perspective, we explore the roles of three types of informal ties (i.e., business, government, and university) in driving inbound and outbound OI, and further examine such effects contingent on market dynamism...

    This paper introduces the procedure and results of the dependence modeling for a complex supply chain management (SCM) system using the design structure matrix (DSM). The elements of the DSM are determined by the functional analysis of the overall SCM system. Population of the matrix results from utilizing the biperspective group decision method, which evaluates the degree of dependence between th... View full abstract»

    Supply chain security (SCS) breaches (a form of supply chain risk) are distressing supply chains and they have the potential to engender acute pain on the society at large. To counteract such breaches, international bodies, nations, societies, industries, and firms have instituted several countermeasures in the form of standards and respective practices. Given that not all incidences/breaches can ... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes a duopoly-like situation in the wet shaving industry featuring an innovation leader and a follower. In this, the leader claims to have filed “interlocking” patents. The explorative case study examines how the leader filed said patents and how their structures have affected potential value appropriation. In fact, the market leader has claimed technical elements in ... View full abstract»
