    A recurrent refrain among technology management researchers and practitioners is the need to adapt to the increasing pace and unpredictability of change within many industry environments. Yet, both the characterization of industry environments and evidence of how they evolve over time has been decidedly mixed. This reflects the limitations and overreliance on linear methods in management research.... View full abstract»

  • Customizing licensing strategies to inventions: Comparing business unit and R&D inventions

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):204 - 215
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (189 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Most of the focus in the licensing literature has been on how firm and market characteristics affect licensing activity. However, in the field of management of technology licensing, there is also a need to understand within-firm heterogeneity in managing licensing activity beyond firm- and market-level approaches. Inventions originate in different parts of the firm [research and development (R&D) ... View full abstract»

  • The fit between managerial ties and resource bundling capabilities: Implications for performance in manufacturing firms

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):216 - 226
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (585 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This study advances managerial ties and firm performance research by examining the contingent value of resource bundling capabilities in the context of China's manufacturing industries. Using a sample of 290 manufacturing firms, we demonstrate that managerial ties and resource bundling capabilities can interactively impact firm performance. Specifically, business ties are positively related to, bu... View full abstract»

  • Managerial ties and exploratory innovation: An opportunity-motivation-ability perspective

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):227 - 238
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (224 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Drawing on the opportunity-motivation-ability perspective, this study examines the linkages of business and political ties to exploratory innovation, and explores the joint moderating effects of innovation orientation and absorptive capacity on the linkages. It finds that the positive linkage between business ties and exploratory innovation is jointly strengthened by innovation orientation and abs... View full abstract»

  • How do assurance mechanisms interact in online marketplaces? A signaling perspective

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):239 - 251
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (380 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Although multiple assurance mechanisms (e.g., third-party certification, web assurance seals, and reputation systems) are commonly used in online marketplaces to ameliorate transaction risks, there is little understanding about how different assurance mechanisms may be combined, and under what conditions these serve as substitutes or complements. From a signaling perspective, this study examines h... View full abstract»

  • Toward a sustainable modern electricity grid: The effects of smart metering and program investments on demand-side management performance in the US electricity sector 2009-2012

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):252 - 263
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Building a sustainable modern electricity sector is a key part of the United Nations' 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Smart meters are expected to contribute to the achievement of this goal by providing new demand-side management opportunities for utilities. Attempting to address existing gaps in the extant literature, this paper examines the effects of metering technologies and demand-side ma... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (470 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Given that much of the technology management literature espouses that selection of a make strategy provides greater performance advantages than selection of a buy strategy in the face of an architectural innovation, recent studies have investigated moderating factors improving the performance of a buy strategy. Some scholars suggest the acquisition of knowledge regarding outsourced components as a... View full abstract»

  • A consensus-based multicriteria group decision model for information technology management committees

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):276 - 292
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1047 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Reaching consensus on decisions - especially when they involve multiple criteria, uncertainty and risk - is a major challenge that Information Technology (IT) Management Committees routinely face. Multicriteria decision-making models could offer support, but may be cumbersome to use when uncertainty and risk are also to be factored in, as it is common in IT service management contexts, for more co...

  • A novel multicriteria decision aiding method based on unsupervised aggregation via the Choquet integral

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):293 - 302
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (585 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In multicriteria decision aiding (MCDA), the Choquet integral has been used as an aggregation operator to deal with the case of interacting decision criteria. In this context, a practical problem that arises is related to the identification of the parameters associated with the Choquet integral, which are known as the Choquet capacities. In this paper, we address the problem of capacity identifica... View full abstract»

  • Hybrid fuzzy-probabilistic approach to supply chain resilience assessment

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):303 - 315
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (824 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, the existing models of supply chain resilience assessment are extended by incorporating ripple effect and structure reconfiguration. Ripple effect mitigation control is vital for supply chain risk management from positions of structural resilience and recoverability. The research approach is based on a hybrid fuzzy-probabilistic approach. The genome method is applied with the object... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1847 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Production systems with waiting time constraints are frequently encountered in semiconductor, automotive, battery, food, and many other manufacturing industries. Under the waiting time constraints, the residence time of in-process inventories is constrained by a predetermined time limit. A part exceeding the maximal time limit has to be inspected for quality assurance and it is subject to be scrap... View full abstract»

    Hybrid flow shop scheduling problem (HFSP) has been extensively discussed and the main objectives are related to completion time. The reduction of energy consumption should be considered fully in HFSP in the era of green manufacturing. In this study, biobjective energy-efficient HFSP is considered, which is made up of three subproblems including scheduling, machine assignment, and speed selection.... View full abstract»
