    • New summary measures and datasets for the multi-project scheduling problem

      Van Eynde, Rob; Vanhoucke, Mario (European Journal of Operational Research, 2022)
      In recent years, more researchers have devoted their attention to the resource-constrained multi-project scheduling problem, resulting in a growing body of knowledge on solution procedures. A key factor in the comparison of these procedures is the availability of benchmark datasets that cover a large part of the feature space. Otherwise, one risks that the conclusions from experiments on these sets do not hold when they are repeated on a different set. In this paper we propose new multi-project datasets that contain instances with a wide variety of characteristics. We first develop several new summary measures that describe three types of portfolio characteristics, two of the three types are not present in any of the existing datasets. Second, an algorithm is developed that can generate instances with the desired parameter values in a controlled manner. With this procedure, we create three datasets that each focus on one of the characteristics and a fourth dataset that contains all combinations. The computational results show (a) that these sets cover a significantly larger part of the feature space than existing benchmark libraries and (b) that they are more challenging for advanced algorithms.
    • New Technology Innovation Model Centered on Enterprises

      Du, Jingshu; Chen, Yufen; Xie, K. (Science and technology management research, 2008)
      As the elderly care sector is characterized by several challenges, rethought and restructured organizations and institutions and thus innovation are necessary. This study investigated (1) what innovation in the elderly care sector means and (2) which factors determine the innovativeness of elderly care organizations. Our goal was to develop a framework to catch innovation and explain the capacity for innovation in the elderly care sector. Via case studies within five Flemish elderly care organizations, the applicability of the complex adaptive system (CAS) theory was examined. The results showed that organizations partially acted as CASs, but totally acting as CASs was restrained by top-down forces, procedures, and regulations.

    • Next concepts for successful organizational change

      Will, Georg Mathias; Wetzel, Ralf (Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change, 2018)
      Next concepts for successful organizational change. According to a Capgemini Consulting (2010) study, 25 per cent of all the change management initiatives fail, productivity decreases about 25 per cent in times of change and employee turnover increases by approximately 10 per cent. Other studies show similar findings (Shin et al., 2012; Zhang and Rajagopalan, 2010). These numbers indicate that, typically, change management not only has a major impact on company’s performance – but in many cases, it makes the situation even worse. This is an unacceptable outcome because, obviously, companies apply change management to achieve a turnaround in performance and productivity
    • Nieuwe kennis uit ongestructureerde tekst

      Elzinga, Paul; Poelmans, Jonas; Viaene, Stijn; Dededene, Guido (Informatie, 2012)
      De Katholieke Universiteit Leuven en de Regiopolitie Amsterdam-Amstelland hebben nieuwe analysemethoden ontwikkeld voor ongestructureerde tekst. Het voornaamste doel is de ontwikkeling van een efficiënte en operationeel inzetbare methode om bruikbare kennis te onttrekken aan de grote hoeveelheid ongestructureerde informatie in de politiedatabases en die toe te passen om potentiële daders en slachtoffers beter en sneller te herkennen.

      Rombouts, Jeroen; Scaillet, Olivier; Veredas, David; Zakoian, Jean-Michel (Journal of Econometrics, 2020)
      This special issue is based upon the conference in honour of Professor Luc Bauwens, held in Brussels on October 2017. The conference was sponsored by UCLouvain and the theme was nonlinear financial econometrics. The generality of the theme reflects precisely the broad research scope of Luc Bauwens. During his career, he has contributed to various areas of time series econometrics, always with applications in economics and finance in mind, and, although being a Bayesian econometrician, he developed both Bayesian and frequentist inference.

      The COVID-19 pandemic is emphasising the extent of inequalities, both between and within societies. In the dynamics between nations, these inequalities revolve around the reliance on international funding bodies for humanitarian aid — and what happens when these big funders withdraw their support.
    • Not all international assignments are created equal: HQ-subsidiary knowledge transfer patterns across types of assignments and types of knowledge

      Duvivier, Florence; Peeters, Carine; Harzing, Anne-Wil (Journal of World Business, 2019)
      Drawing on 50 semi-structured interviews in a case study of a Belgian multinational and its foreign subsidiary in Poland, we develop new insights into how using different types of international assignments (long-term expatriation, short-term expatriation, short-term inpatriation) allows a HQ-subsidiary dyad to transfer different types of knowledge (declarative, procedural, axiomatic, relational), both from and to HQ, during and after the assignment. We show how each type of assignment acts as a unique knowledge transfer channel, and why it is critical that HQ-subsidiary dyads use an appropriate combination and sequence of international assignments reflecting their specific knowledge transfer needs.
    • Numerical study of inventory management under various maintenance policies

      Poppe, Joeri; Basten, Rob; Boute, Robert; Lambrecht, Marc (Reliability Engineering and System Safety, 2017)
      Capital assets, such as manufacturing equipment, require maintenance to remain functioning. Maintenance can be performed when a component breaks down and needs replacement (i.e., corrective maintenance), or the maintenance and part replacement can be performed preventively. Preventive maintenance can be planned on a periodic basis (periodic maintenance), or it can be triggered by a certain monitored condition (condition-based maintenance). Preventive maintenance policies are gaining traction in the business world, but for many companies it is unclear what their impact is on the resulting inventory requirements for the spare parts that are used for the maintenance interventions. We study the impact of the maintenance policy on the inventory requirements and the corresponding costs for a setting that is realistic at an OEM in the compressed air industry. Preventive policies increase the total demand for spare parts compared to corrective maintenance, since the former do not exploit the entire useful life of the components. This leads to higher inventory requirements. At the same time, the preventive policies inhibit advance demand information, as the interventions, and correspondingly the spare parts demands, are planned in advance. Using a simulation study, we show that by using this advance demand information in managing the spare part inventory, the increase in inventory requirements of preventive maintenance policies can to a large extent be offset, for condition-based maintenance, we find that inventories can even be lower compared to corrective maintenance, provided that the advance demand information is used correctly when managing inventories. Our analysis sheds light on the behaviour of the inventory related costs under various maintenance policies.

    • Objective environmental conditions and perceived environmental uncertainty: Cognitive models as explanation for a perceptual gap

      Weiss, Martin; Wittmann, Christina (Journal of Accounting & Organizational Change, 2018)
      It appears as if a gap exists between objective environmental conditions and the respective managerial perception of those conditions. This situation poses severe problems for executives deriving effective strategies and initiating successful organizational change. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to develop and provide a deeper understanding of the factors that lead to such a gap.
