    • Target costing and value engineering

      Cooper, Robin; Slagmulder, Regine (1997)
      Effective cost management must start at the design stage. As much as 90-95% of a product's costs are added in the design process. That is why effective cost management programs focus on design and manufacturing. The primary cost management method to control cost during design is a combination of target costing and value engineering.

    • The agile leader's scrapbook

      Van den Broeck, Herman; Jordaan, Barney (2018)
      The demand for organisations to become more agile has never been greater than in today's fast moving economy. This book puts forward a framework and techniques that will allow your organisation to survive and even thrive in the turbulence of the current business environment. The Agile Leader's Scrapbook inspires readers to find a 'managerial logic' that fits with the particular needs of their organisation. By laying out the basics of what it means to create an agile working environment, it provides clues to a better approach to co-creation, and to letting self-sufficient teams make better and more sustainable decisions.
    • The appropriate board chair: a reality check

      Levrau, Abigail; Van den Berghe, Lutgart (2013)
      This research investigates the impact of alternative allocation mechanisms that can be employed in the context of vaccine inventory rationing. Available vaccine inventory can be allocated to arrivals from high priority (target groups such as healthcare professionals) and low priority (non-target groups) demand classes using Partitioned Allocation (PA), Standard Nesting (SN), and Theft Nesting (TN). In any one of the mechanisms, a part of the available inventory is reserved for the exclusive use of the high priority demand class. They differ, however, in how the unreserved portion of the inventory is utilized: Under PA, demand from the high (low) priority class consumes only the reserved (unreserved) quantity. Under SN, demand from the high priority class first consumes the reserved quantity, once and if this quantity is exhausted, high priority demand competes with low priority demand for the remaining inventory. Under TN the sequence of allocation is reversed: both demand classes first compete for the unreserved inventory. Once this portion of inventory is exhausted, high priority demand is fulfilled from the reserved inventory and low priority demand is rejected. We develop service level (probability of fulfilling the entire demand) and fill rate (fraction of demand fulfilled) expressions for all three allocation mechanisms. Based on these expressions, numerical analyses are conducted to illustrate which allocation mechanism a health planner should choose depending on the availability of vaccines, and how the health planner should set the reserved quantity for the high priority class. We observe that (1) there exist certain conditions under which one of the allocation mechanisms outperforms the others and (2) this effect is determined by the decision maker’s choice of the performance measure.
    • The art of project management: a story about work and passion

      Vanhoucke, Mario (2015)
      The book contains stories about friendship, ideas, hard work and results on Project Management. It gives you a look into the endeavors done in the past and the ideas that will be done in the future. It tells about the products and ideas of OR-AS and gives you a brief overview of the most important people who inspired us and the OR-AS products. It tells about work, and the passion that has led to the results of the hard work. It's not a scientific book. It isn't a managerial book either. It's just a story ... about work and passion.
