Establishing trust within groups or teams of scientists and technicians working on large‐scale projects is considered an essential critical success factor when working in a virtual environment. To build trust among team members for any project requires a selection decision on which trust factors will best achieve the goals of the project. This paper presents application results of using two analytic methodologies used to evaluate trust survey information from the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS),...

The primary objective of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is to help integrate an organization's business operations and processes effectively and efficiently. Not all firms have been successful in their ERP implementations and to that end research has helped to identify many factors that might be critical to a successful implementation. Such factors as the use of business process reengineering (BPR), and establishing a total quality management (TQM) culture have all shown to play im...

Many of the financial instruments used in classic investment analysis do not apply to typical information technology investment decision making because of the multi‐criteria and multi‐objective nature of the problem. This is particularly true when integrating strategic, tactical, and operations planning objectives in the decision. One approach for making IT investment decisions is a multi‐objective goal programming (GP) model proposed by Talluri in 2000. The purpose of our paper is twofold: to d...

The U-shaped assembly line-balancing problem can be solved using optimization procedures or algorithms, including branch-and-bound procedures. This paper considers design elements that should be included in these solution methods for solving the U-shaped assembly line-balancing problem. New solution procedures are proposed and compared experimentally with several existing procedures using a variety of problem sets from the literature. The results show that the substantial improvement in the effi...

Recent models comparing inventory costs under just‐in‐time (JIT) purchasing plans and economic order quantity (EOQ) purchasing plans have tended to favor EOQ purchasing in situations where annual demand of inventory is moderately large. Contends that these cost models are lacking dynamic cost components inherent in virtually all JIT purchasing plans. Presents a series of inventory purchasing cost models that extend prior methodology by Fazel by including relevant physical distribution cost savin...

The purpose of this paper is to compare implementation of short‐run (i.e., small lot‐size) statistical process control (SPC) techniques in just‐in‐time (JIT) manufacturing environments. Using U.S. and Japanese questionnaires, this research focuses on the use of several manufacturing elements such as setup time, stability of process and quality improvement. Barriers to the implementation of short‐run SPC techniques are also examined. Results show significant difference in the way some short‐run S...
