The Impact Of Lean Level Material Flow On Performance Of Manufacturing Systems For Large Complex Parts, Manocher Djassemi 2009 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

The Impact Of Lean Level Material Flow On Performance Of Manufacturing Systems For Large Complex Parts, Manocher Djassemi

Eric Olsen

In this paper, the effectiveness of lean level load scheduling in manufacturing of large complex parts is discussed, and its impact on processing capacity is examined. These types of parts are common in aircraft manufacturing and shipbuilding, both of which can be characterized by large size and expensive capital equipment, low production volume, and long processing times. A discrete-event simulation model is constructed to assist decision making, with several part loading policies being modeled in detail. Data from a large aircraft manufacturer are used as input to the model. The results of simulation experiments indicate that lean level scheduling improves ...

The Rbv And Value Creation: A Managerial Perspective, Angelina Zubac, Graham Hubbard, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

Purpose: The paper aims to explain why the customer value construct is important to resource-based view (RBV) scholars and how one might define it to study it. Design/methodology/approach: By a summary of the ideas behind the RBV and previously applied definitions of customer value, the paper explains why Woodruff's multidimensional definition of customer value is suited to studying customer value from a managerial perspective. To this end, it develops a framework and derives three research questions for studying how managers use the firm's resources to creat customer value. Findings: It was found that to understand how ...

On The Dynamics Of Energy Consumption And Employment In Public And Private Sector, aviral tiwari 2009 IFHE University-IBS Hyderabad, AP, India

On The Dynamics Of Energy Consumption And Employment In Public And Private Sector, Aviral Tiwari

Aviral Kumar Tiwari

This study intended to analyze the direction of Granger-causality between energy consumption and employment in public and private sector. We have adopted DL approach for Granger-causality analysis. We found from the whole analysis that there is evidence of bidirectional causality between energy consumption and employment in organized public and private sector. Therefore our study supports for our third testable hypothesis i.e., “feedback hypothesis”


Using Historic Mutinies To Understand Defiance In Modern Organizations., Ray Coye, Patrick Murphy, Patricia Spencer 2009 DePaul University

Using Historic Mutinies To Understand Defiance In Modern Organizations., Ray Coye, Patrick Murphy, Patricia Spencer

Patrick J. Murphy

Purpose: Guided by voice and leadership theory, we articulate the underpinnings of upward defiance (competence deficiency; ignorance of concerns; structural gaps between echelons) and describe the managerial actions that help depose those underpinnings. Design / Methodology / Approach: We analyze 30 historic narrative accounts of actual mutinies. The journalistic accounts from bygone eras provide unparalleled insight into the basic dynamics of mutiny and provide novel insights into organizational defiance. Findings: Our principal findings show that the underpinnings of mutiny in organizations derive from three foundations: disconnections between authority echelons, modes of addressing member disgruntlement, and the need for management to develop competencies ...


Crisis Opportunism: Bail Outs And E-Scads In The Gfc, Judy Johnston, Alexander Kouzmin, Kym Thorne, Stephen Kelly 2009 University of Technology, Sydney

Crisis Opportunism: Bail Outs And E-Scads In The Gfc, Judy Johnston, Alexander Kouzmin, Kym Thorne, Stephen Kelly

Adjunct Professor Stephen J Kelly

As a response to the “junk-debt”- inspired, global, economic crisis, governments, with supra-national organizational approval, have appropriated billions of taxpayers’ dollars for bail-outs, have set-up special funds and under-written depositors’ savings in the desperate hope of alleviating the threat of rapid, economic decline and systemic destruction of value. Whether these governments have a democratic mandate for such unprecedented action is debatable. More importantly, though, is whether such decisions amount to good re-regulatory policy.

First, it is known that some of the bail-out money to large corporations has been squandered by oligarchic recipients and appropriated by them in their own interests ...
