Performance Modeling Of Distributed Collaboration Services With Independent Inputs/Outputs, Toqeer A. Israr, Gregor V. Bochmann 2017 Eastern Illinois University

Performance Modeling Of Distributed Collaboration Services With Independent Inputs/Outputs, Toqeer A. Israr, Gregor V. Bochmann

Toqeer A Israr

This paper deals with modeling and performance analysis of dis-tributed applications, service compositions and workflow systems. From the functional perspective, the distributed application is modeled as an activity in-volving several roles, where behavior is defined in terms of compositions from several sub-activities using the standard sequencing operators found in UML Activity Diagrams. Each activity is characterized by a certain number of input and output events, and the performance of the activity is defined by the mini-mum delays that apply for a given output event in respect to each input event. We use a partial order to model these events, whose ...

The composition of the project establishes an analysis between historical and geographical approaches for the artists selected.

Implications Of The Sharing Economy For Online And Blended Education, Rassule Hadidi, Daniel Power 2017 University of Illinois at Springfield

Implications Of The Sharing Economy For Online And Blended Education, Rassule Hadidi, Daniel Power

Daniel Power

The sharing economy phenomenon is disrupting traditional organizations. Sharing concepts coupled with e-Learning can and likely will disrupt higher education. We explore the sharing phenomenon and compare and contrast it with online and blended education. We conclude more effective use of sharing technologies and better course content, innovative instructional technology, and good teaching can help accredited institutions of higher education provide better learning environments as well as stronger degree programs and certifications.

Daniel Power

This panel starts a MWAIS community conversation about privacy, technology and surveillance in the digital age: the Big Brother scenario. The Big Brother metaphor captures many of our concerns about a future scenario that is increasingly possible. Issues to be discussed by the panel include: 1. How do we define ‘privacy’ in the digital age? 2. Who gathers our information online, and why? 3. What is the scope of surveillance in our culture – governmental, corporate, and interpersonal? 4. How much can be learned about us from our online presence? 5. What are the risks, and how can we protect ourselves ...

Firm-Specific Knowledge Assets And Employment Arrangements: Evidence From Ceo Compensation Design And Ceo Dismissal, Heli WANG, Shan ZHAO, Guoli CHEN 2017 Singapore Management University

Firm-Specific Knowledge Assets And Employment Arrangements: Evidence From Ceo Compensation Design And Ceo Dismissal, Heli Wang, Shan Zhao, Guoli Chen

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Research Summary: We argue that firms with greater specificity in knowledge structure need to both encourage their CEOs to stay so that they make investments with a long-term perspective, and provide job securities to the CEOs so that they are less concerned about the risk of being dismissed. Accordingly, we found empirical evidence that specificity in firm knowledge assets is positively associated with the use of restricted stocks in CEO compensation design (indicating the effort of CEO retention) and negatively associated with CEO dismissal (indicating the job securities the firm committed to CEOs). Furthermore, firm diversification was found to mitigate ...


Social Value Creation And Relational Coordination In Public-Private Collaborations, Nigel D. CADWELL, Jens K. ROEHRICH, Gerard GEORGE 2017 Heriot Watt University

Social Value Creation And Relational Coordination In Public-Private Collaborations, Nigel D. Cadwell, Jens K. Roehrich, Gerard George

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Public-private collaborations, or hybrid organizational forms, are often difficult to organize because of disparate goals, incentives, and management practices. Some of this misalignment is addressed structurally or contractually, but not the management processes and practices. In this study, we examine how the coordination of these social and work relationships, or relational coordination, affects task performance and the creation of social value. We employ a dyad perspective on two long-term relationships that are part of a wider ecosystem. We illustrate the social value creation process, identifying mutual knowledge and goal alignment, as necessary to create relational coordination. We find that the ...

Optimizing (S, S) Policies For Multi-Period Inventory Models With Demand Distribution Uncertainty: Robust Dynamic Programming Approaches, Ruozhen Qiu, Minghe Sun, Yun Fong Lim

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

We consider a finite-horizon single-product periodic-review inventory managementproblem with demand distribution uncertainty. We formulate the problemas a dynamic program and prove the existence of an optimal (s, S) policy. Thecorresponding dynamic robust counterpart models are then developed for thebox and the ellipsoid uncertainty sets. These counterpart models are transformedinto tractable linear and second-order cone programs, respectively. Weillustrate the effectiveness and practicality of the proposed robust optimizationapproaches through a numerical study.

Impact Of Socioeconomic Factors On Florida Consumers' Perceptions On Use Of Chemical In Locally Or Regionally Produced Livestock Products, David Nii O. Tackie, Akua Adu-Gyamfi, Janette R. Bartlett, Bridget J. Perry

Professional Agricultural Workers Journal

Abstract

The use of chemicals in livestock production has been an issue for consumers for several decades. This study, therefore, assessed the impact of socioeconomic factors on Florida consumers’ perceptions on the use of chemicals in locally or regionally produced livestock products. Data were collected from a sample of 404 participants from several Florida counties and were analyzed using descriptive statistics and ordinal logistic analysis. Most of the respondents were of the opinion that using chemicals in locally or regionally produced and sold beef or goat meat was a serious or somewhat serious hazard. The ordinal logistic regression results showed ...


Do Employee Citizenship Behaviors Lead To Customer Citizenship Behaviors? The Roles Of Dual Identification And Service Climate, Kimmy Wa Chan, Taeshik Gong, Ruixue Zhang, Mingjian Zhou 2017 Hong Kong Baptist University

Do Employee Citizenship Behaviors Lead To Customer Citizenship Behaviors? The Roles Of Dual Identification And Service Climate, Kimmy Wa Chan, Taeshik Gong, Ruixue Zhang, Mingjian Zhou

HKBU Staff Publication

This study pertains to whether and how employees’ organizational citizenship behaviors toward customers (OCB-C) influence customers’ citizenship behaviors (CCB) directed toward the firm, employees, and other customers. Drawing on a social exchange perspective, this study proposes that a dual identification mechanism—spanning customer-employee identification (C-EI) and customer-firm identification (C-FI)—mediates the social exchange relationship between OCB toward customers (OCB-C) and CCB. Service climate as a key contextual factor moderates the mediating mechanisms of identification. With data collected from a field survey and an experiment, the findings confirm that the dual identification mechanism mediates the effect of OCB-C on customers’ reciprocation ...
