  • Social enterprise tree network games
    • Authors: Darko Skorin-Kapov
      Pages: 5 - 20
      Abstract: We investigate the cost allocation strategy associated with the problem of providing service among network users residing at nodes of a social network. We assume that the social network platform is established in a symmetric complete network. There is a cost associated with each link and the service between any pair of nodes can be delivered via a directed path. The example of a cost efficient solution for such network is a (non-rooted) minimum cost directed spanning tree. The network cost should be distributed among users who might have conflicting interests. The objective of this paper is to formulate the above cost allocation problem as a cooperative game, to be referred to as a Social Enterprise Tree Network (SETN) game, and develop a “fair” and efficient cost allocation scheme. The SETN game is related to the minimum cost spanning tree game. The profound difference is that in the minimum cost spanning tree game the service is delivered from some common source node to the rest of the network, while under the social network platform there is no source and the service is established through the interaction among all participating nodes. The input to our cost allocation problem is the optimal non-rooted directed spanning tree SETN. We formulate several associated SETN games in characteristic function form. Then we construct a couple of efficient cost allocation algorithms that find some points in the core of those SETN games and thus result in subsidy-free cost allocations.

  • Investigating task and risk orientations in social behavior in networks: a
           fuzzy set-based model connecting natural and social sciences
    • Authors: Margaret F. Shipley; Faiza Khoja; J. Brooke Shipley
      Pages: 21 - 40
      Abstract: This research extends the discourse of Behavioral Operations Management to relate human behavior in social networks with the behavior of fish ecosystems. Using the theory of swarm intelligence, a comprehensive model is presented setting forth the basic theoretical framework for both firms and fish, and identifying the analogous environmental factors and cultural values. It is posited that fish social behavior is dependent upon the work of consumption and energy involved in foraging. Comparatively, for organizational units the cultural values of task and risk orientations influence the development of social networks. Fuzzy set-based rules are used to conduct the analysis and it is found that the results for organizations and fish are similar with both risk and task orientations shown to affect social network behavior with an acceptable certainty of belief. Low risk to foraging and small need for consumption for fish do not send them from the safe haven reef. The fish self-organization which tends to follow collective behavior based on a looser rule system was more dominated by risk taking contributing to its social networking. Overall, the organization’s units responded to high risk taking as contributing to the social network behavior but also a high level of task orientation fostered social behavior. Several theoretical, empirical and practical contributions are discussed.

  • A joint analysis of production and seeding strategies for new products: an
           agent-based simulation approach
    • Authors: Ashkan Negahban; Jeffrey S. Smith
      Pages: 41 - 62
      Abstract: The goal of this paper is to provide a joint analysis of marketing and production strategies for new products to find the optimal combination of seeding and inventory build-up policies. We propose and experiment with an agent-based simulation model of new technology diffusion to evaluate different seeding criteria, fraction of the market to seed, and inventory build-up policies under various social network structures, demand backlogging levels, and product categories. In contrast to previous findings (that are mainly based on the assumption of unlimited supply), we show that the seeding strategy that maximizes the adoption rate is not necessarily optimal in the presence of supply constraints. More importantly, we show that determining seeding and build-up policies sequentially may lead to suboptimal decisions and that the optimal combination of seeding and build-up policy varies for different product categories. We study different small-world and scale-free networks and illustrate how the distribution of long-range connections and influential nodes affect the adoption, demand backlogging, and lost sales dynamics as well as the overall profit. The important implications of the findings for diffusion research as well as marketing and operations management practice are also discussed.

  • How exposure to different opinions impacts the life cycle of social media
    • Authors: Armin A. Rad; Mohammad S. Jalali; Hazhir Rahmandad
      Pages: 63 - 91
      Abstract: As a lot of communication and media consumption moves online, people may be exposed to a wider population and more diverse opinions. However, individuals may act differently when faced with opinions far removed from their own. Moreover, changes in the frequency of visits, posting, and other forms of expression could lead to narrowing of the opinions that each person observes, as well as changes in the customer base for online platforms. Despite increasing research on the rise and fall of online social media outlets, user activity in response to exposure to others’ opinions has received little attention. In this study, we first introduce a method that maps opinions of individuals and their generated content on a multi-dimensional space by factorizing an individual–object interaction (e.g., user-news rating) matrix. Using data on 6151 users interacting with 287,327 pieces of content over 21 months on a social media platform we estimate changes in individuals’ activities in response to interaction with content expressing a variety of opinions. We find that individuals increase their online activities when interacting with content close to their own opinions, and interacting with extreme opinions may decrease their activities. Finally, developing an agent-based simulation model, we study the effect of the estimated mechanisms on the future success of a simulated platform.

  • Carbon emission reduction and pricing policies of a supply chain
           considering reciprocal preferences in cap-and-trade system
    • Authors: Liangjie Xia; Tingting Guo; Juanjuan Qin; Xiaohang Yue; Ning Zhu
      Pages: 149 - 175
      Abstract: The traditional self-interest hypothesis is far from perfect. Social preference has a significant impact on every firm’s decision making. This paper incorporates reciprocal preferences and consumers’ low-carbon awareness (CLA) into the dyadic supply chain in which a single manufacturer plays a Stackelberg-like game with a single retailer. This research intends to investigate how reciprocity and CLA may affect the decisions and performances of the supply chain members and the system’s efficiency. In this study, the following two scenarios are discussed: (1) both the manufacturer and the retailer have no reciprocal preferences and (2) both of them have reciprocal preferences. We derive equilibriums under both scenarios and present a numerical analysis. We demonstrate that reciprocal preferences and CLA significantly affect the equilibrium and firms’ profits and utilities. First, the optimal retail price increases with CLA, while it decreases with the reciprocity of the retailer and the manufacturer; the optimal wholesale price increases with CLA and the retailer’s reciprocity, while it decreases with the manufacturer’s reciprocity. The optimal emission reduction level increases with CLA and the reciprocity of both the manufacturer and the retailer. Second, the optimal profits of the participants and the supply chain increase with CLA, the participants’ optimal profits are concave in their own reciprocity and increase with their co-operators’ reciprocity. Third, the participants’ optimal utilities increase with CLA and their reciprocity. Finally, the supply chain efficiency increases with the participants’ reciprocity, while the efficiency decreases with CLA.

  • Order allocation of logistics service supply chain with fairness concern
           and demand updating: model analysis and empirical examination
    • Authors: Weihua Liu; Shuqing Wang; DongLei Zhu; Di Wang; Xinran Shen
      Pages: 177 - 213
      Abstract: Regarding a two-echelon supply chain consisting of a logistics service integrator (LSI) and several functional logistics service providers (FLSPs), this paper establishes a two-stage order allocation model considering demand updating and the FLSPs’ fairness preferences. This model is a multi-objective programming model, whose goal is to maximize profits of the LSI and the total utility of FLSPs. The ideal point method is used to obtain the optimal solution. In the numerical example, the impacts of FLSPs’ behavioral parameters and demand update parameters on the order allocation in the social services network are discussed. Besides, multi-methodological method is used to verify the theoretical perspectives through an empirical study of Tianjin SND Logistics Company. Our study obtains a few important conclusions. For example, when demand of the second stage is updated, there is an optimal updating time maximizing the supply chain performance. Increased demand of the second stage results in greater supply chain performance. When the demand during the second stage decreases, the bigger the difference of the fairness preference coefficients among FLSPs, the greater the LSI’s profits and the lower the FLSPs’ total utility will be. However, the difference of the fairness preference coefficients among FLSPs has little influence on the LSI’s profits and total utility of the FLSPs, when the demand during the second stage increases.

  • Inventory centralization with risk-averse newsvendors
    • Authors: Jiahua Zhang; Shu-Cherng Fang; Yifan Xu
      Pages: 215 - 237
      Abstract: In the paper, we study the inventory centralization problem with risk-averse newsvendors using cooperative game theory. Pareto-optimality and collective rationality conditions are adopted to characterize the stable profit allocations among coalition members. Pareto-optimal profit allocation rules are derived for exponential and power utilities while the necessary and sufficient conditions are shown for stable profit allocations. We also show that the game model has a nonempty core when the exponential and power utilities are adopted to describe the risk-averse behavior.

  • Impacts of retailer’s risk averse behaviors on quick response
           fashion supply chain systems
    • Authors: Tsan-Ming Choi
      Pages: 239 - 257
      Abstract: Supply chain systems for fashion apparel products face a high level of risk as the market demand is very volatile and unpredictable. In order to cope with demand volatility, the quick response system which aims to shorten replenishment lead time has been well-established. With a shortened lead time, retailers can postpone the ordering decision and improve their demand forecast by gathering updated market information. However, there is a limit for quick response in which the market demand forecast is never fully accurate and uncertainty can never be fully eliminated. Thus, to keep the level of risk under control, retailers tend to possess a risk-averse behaviour in making their respective inventory decisions. In this paper, we explore the make-to-order quick response fashion supply chain with a risk averse retailer. We employ the mean-risk framework to incorporate the retailer’s risk averse behavior into the optimization model. With the focal point on uncovering the impacts brought by the retailer’s risk averse behavior to the quick response fashion supply chain system, we analytically derive important theoretical insights regarding the retailer’s optimal decisions, the implied inventory service levels, the values of quick response, and the contractual arrangements to attain Pareto improvement when the retailer is risk averse.

  • Uncertain outcome presentations bias decisions: experimental evidence from
           Finland and Italy
    • Authors: Azzurra Morreale; Jan Stoklasa; Mikael Collan; Giovanna Lo Nigro
      Pages: 259 - 272
      Abstract: Even in their everyday lives people are expected to make difficult decisions objectively and rationally, no matter how complex or uncertain the situation. In this research, we study how the format of presentation and the amount of presented information concerning risky events influence the decision-making process, and the propensity to take risk in decision makers. The results of an exploratory survey conducted in Finland and in Italy suggest that decision-making behavior changes according to the way the information is presented. We provide experimental evidence that different representations of expected outcomes create distinct cognitive biases and as a result affect the decisions made. This identified change in the perception of risk has, to the best of our knowledge, not been identified nor directly studied previously in the scientific literature. The paper thus presents novel insights into managerial decision-making that are potentially relevant for decision support theory, with implications to decision-makers and for information providers. Understanding the impact of various forms of presentation of risk is crucial in being able to convey information clearly and in a way that avoids misunderstandings. The implications of the results on being able to avoid opportunistic manipulation of decisions, are also of great concern in many application areas. Social networks are more and more frequently being used as a source of information and in this context it is crucial to acknowledge the effect that different ways of presenting and communicating risky outcomes may have on the behavior of the target group. Here presented results may, for example, be highly relevant for marketing and advertising that is conducted by using social media or social networks.

  • Supply chain decisions with reference quality effect under the O2O
    • Authors: Yanyan He; Juan Zhang; Qinglong Gou; Gongbing Bi
      Pages: 273 - 292
      Abstract: The reference quality effect is an important factor that influences consumer purchasing behavior. To investigate how firms should incorporate the reference quality effect under different business models, we focus on a supply chain consisting of a supplier and a retailer where the retailer can be an offline store, a pure online store or a combination of offline and online stores within an offline to online model. We formulate the reference quality effect with a modified Nerlove-Arrow model and use two different sales functions to reflect the fact that the reference quality effect will affect consumers in various ways when the business model varies. Utilizing differential game theory, the equilibrium decisions of the channel members are derived, and the analysis illustrates how the firms should adjust their decisions when the retailers use different retail patterns. The basic model does not allow product returns, but then this assumption is relaxed. Comparison between the two cases shows under what conditions consumers will benefit from the retailer’s allowing product returns.

  • Reverse auctions with regret-anticipated bidders
    • Authors: Xiaohu Qian; Shu-Cherng Fang; Min Huang; Qi An; Xingwei Wang
      Pages: 293 - 313
      Abstract: Suppliers may experience emotional/behavioral consequences of anticipated regrets that consist of winner and loser regrets in first- and second-price sealed-bid reverse auctions. Constructing mathematical models that incorporate regret theory to derive closed-form solutions of regret-anticipated suppliers’ bid decisions, this paper theoretically examines the effects of anticipated regrets on suppliers’ bid prices, buyer’s expected procurement cost and auction format decision. Comparing with the no regret scenario, we find that winner regret has adverse effects on the buyer’s expected procurement cost in first-price sealed-bid reverse auctions with regret-anticipated suppliers. To mitigate the adverse effects, we propose using the reserve price strategy for the buyer with theoretical analysis and numerical supports. An interesting analysis reveals that as the number of suppliers increases, the optimal reserve price increases or decreases depending on the degree of winner regret is lower or higher than that of loser regret. Also, the classical revenue equivalence theorem no longer holds when the degree of winner regret differs from that of loser regret.

  • The hot-versus-cold effect in a punishment game: a multi-round
           experimental study
    • Authors: Yukun Zhao; Xiaobo Zhao; Zuo-Jun Max Shen
      Pages: 333 - 355
      Abstract: We conduct a multi-round experiment on a punishment game using both the strategy method and the direct-response method. In the game, the sender may make decisions that are either favorable or unfavorable to the receiver, whereas the receiver may reward the favorable decision and/or punish the unfavorable decision. The hot-versus-cold effect is observed in both sender behaviors and receiver behaviors. Under the strategy method, the senders more often adopt decisions that are favorable to the receivers, whereas the receivers impose punishment more frequently than under the direct-response method. We suggest that in the multi-round experiment, the strategic value of punishment dominates the taste for punishment from the perspective of the receiver. According to our explanation based on mental accounting, the utility of imposing punishment is higher under the strategy method than under the direct-response method. Hence, the receiver is more likely to make punishment decisions. This difference in receiver behaviors prompts the sender to make receiver-favorable decisions more frequently under the strategy method.

  • Multi-stakeholder decision theory
    • Authors: Danny Samson; Pat Foley; Heng Soon Gan; Marianne Gloet
      Pages: 357 - 386
      Abstract: Decisions made by people at work often have outcomes for their employer (sales, costs, profits) and for themselves personally (career progression, bonus), which are not perfectly aligned across the choice options. When such misalignment exists, decision-makers at all levels in organizations must evaluate choices in terms of conflicting outcomes across stakeholders. Existing theories of agency and stewardship provide very different answers to this question, and utility theory does not address this question at all: it assumes that the decision maker will act so as to maximize the expected utility of the firm, essentially a pure steward position. Yet we see commonplace practices of incentives and monitoring of people’s work and decisions aiming to overcome agency problems, with mixed success in practice. We also sometimes see ‘super-agent’ choices, of managers lining their own pockets while their organizations lose out. In this study, we propose, develop, mathematically model and illustrate a new theory of decision-making, based on a multiple stakeholder utility function approach, where the argument of that function explicitly includes both the employer’s and the employee’s utilities as stakeholders. This new approach is shown to be more generalizable than both pure agency and stewardship approaches, within a broad continuum of tradeoff-based decisions.

  • Cooperation strategy of technology licensing based on evolutionary game
    • Authors: Jinshi Cheng; Bengang Gong; Bangyi Li
      Pages: 387 - 404
      Abstract: This study analyzes the issue of technology-licensing cooperation between a firm with production patent technology and a firm with inferior production technology, and obtains the evolution trend of the technology-licensing deal and cooperation strategy under fixed-fee licensing and royalty licensing situation. We find that the probability of successful cooperation between the two firms increases when fixed technology-license fees and cost savings from technology licensing increase simultaneously, and change of fixed technology license fees and cost savings affects the willingness to cooperate of the firm with inferior production technology, and not the firm with production patent technology. Furthermore, modest royalty fees promote successful cooperation. In both licensing situations, for the firm with production patent technology, an increase in the market share of its products or non-licensing resource sharing cost-saving value reduces the cooperation probability. Meanwhile, for the firm with inferior production technology, an increase in the market share of its products promotes successful cooperation in the royalty licensing case, but requires conditions for fixed technology-licensing fees and cost savings lower than a certain value in the fixed-fee licensing case.

  • On the optimality of coupon books
    • Authors: John G. Wilson; Jing Chen
      Pages: 405 - 423
      Abstract: Our research was motivated by the challenge that a discount airline can set prices below traditional levels. One possible response for the traditional airline is to offer a book of coupons at a fixed price, in an attempt to retain or even increase market share. Offering coupon books is a way to induce changes in customer buying practices. Here we assume that each customer acts strategically in deciding whether or not to switch airlines and whether to buy the coupon book or the regular tickets. Other than price, the number of coupons in the book provides a way to segment the market. Airlines usually have data on circumstances where no coupon books were offered, but they generally do not have the luxury of experimenting by offering coupon books and gauging the response. The focus for this work is therefore: using only the data that is currently available (from the non-coupon case), are there key indicators that can help an airline decide whether or not to offer coupon books' We demonstrate that the crucial factor is the company’s current market share, and we show how to establish a threshold market share above which coupon books should not be offered. This becomes useful when advising a manager on a course of action, as the decision can be based on knowledge of current market share and beliefs about future market share. We show that there can be a broad region in which a manager can tolerate the give and take involved in behavioral and group decision making.

  • Environment-biased technological progress and industrial land-use
           efficiency in China’s new normal
    • Authors: Malin Song; Shuhong Wang; Kaiya Wu
      Pages: 425 - 440
      Abstract: The slow growth of the Chinese economy has led to a reduced number of environmental regulations. This study aims to establish whether China’s “new normal” economy can stimulate environment-biased technological progress to improve industrial land-use efficiency. First, we set up a two-sector theoretical model where in the new normal is treated as an exogenous variable to analyze the combined effects of technological progress, industrial land-use efficiency, and environmental regulations. Then, we establish a multi-index and multi-indicator constitutive equation, in which environment-biased technological progress is taken as an intermediate variable. The results show that the effects of weak environmental regulations on environment-biased technological progress are not significant and that China’s new normal economy can stimulate the progress of clean technology, thereby improving industrial land-use efficiency. Finally, foreign direct investment restricts the improvement of industrial land-use efficiency.

  • Decomposition method for oligopolistic competitive models with common
           environmental regulation
    • Authors: E. Allevi; A. Gnudi; I. V. Konnov; G. Oggioni
      Pages: 441 - 467
      Abstract: Global climate change has encouraged international and regional adoption of environmental policies aiming at reducing the generation of greenhouse gas emissions. Europe has taken the leadership in environmental regulations by introducing the European-Union Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS) in 2005 and other policies to mitigate carbon emissions and increase the efficiency of production processes. These environmental policies have significantly affected the production choices of the European energy and industrial sectors. In this paper, we consider a market where a set of players (firms) produce different commodities under a common environmental regulation that limits their emissions. Due to these environmental restrictions, the problem is treated as a generalized non-cooperative game where players have joint (environmental) constraints caused by the common and compulsory emission regulation. The problem is to find a natural mechanism for attaining the corresponding generalized equilibrium state. We suggest a share allocation method, which yields a suitable decomposition type procedure and replaces the initial problem with a sequence of non-cooperative games on Cartesian product sets. We also show that its implementation can be simplified essentially after the application of a regularized penalty method. In the case study, we take inspiration from the EU-ETS and we introduce an environmental regulation that restricts the carbon emissions of firms representing the energy, cement, and steel sectors respectively in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. Our results confirm the important role played by energy sector in reducing carbon emissions.

  • Centralized fixed cost and resource allocation considering technology
           heterogeneity: a DEA approach
    • Authors: Tao Ding; Ya Chen; Huaqing Wu; Yuqi Wei
      Pages: 497 - 511
      Abstract: Many studies have concentrated on fixed cost and resource allocation issues by using data envelopment analysis (DEA). The existing approaches allocate fixed cost or resource primary based on efficiency principle. They usually assume that all of the DMUs become efficient after fixed cost or resource allocation. However, due to the existing of technology heterogeneity among DMUs, it is impractical for all the DMUs to achieve a common technology level, especially when some DMUs are far from the efficient frontier. In this paper, under the centralized decision environment, we present a new approach to deal with fixed cost and resource allocation problems by considering the factor of technology heterogeneity. Specifically, the concepts of meta-efficiency and group efficiency as well as meta-technology ratio are firstly introduced to reflect the technology level of the DMUs. Then two centralized DEA models considering technology heterogeneity are proposed to allocate fixed cost and resources, respectively. Finally, two numerical examples are presented to illustrate the feasibility and superiority of the proposed approach compared with prior studies.

  • Operational performance management of the power industry: a distinguishing
           analysis between effectiveness and efficiency
    • Authors: Ke Wang; Chia-Yen Lee; Jieming Zhang; Yi-Ming Wei
      Pages: 513 - 537
      Abstract: The trend toward a more competitive electricity market has led to efforts by the electric power industry to develop advanced efficiency evaluation models that adapt to market behavior operations management. The promotion of the operational performance management of the electric power industry plays an important role in China’s efforts toward energy conservation, emission control and sustainable development. Traditional efficiency measures are not able to distinguish sales effects from productive efficiency and thus are not sufficient for measuring the operational performance of an electricity generation system for achieving its specific market behavior operations management goals, such as promoting electricity sales. Effectiveness measures are associated with the capacity of an electricity generation system to adjust its input resources that influence its electricity generation and, thus, the capacity to match the electricity demand. Therefore, the effectiveness measures complement the efficiency measures by capturing the sales effect in the operational performance evaluation. This study applies a newly developed data envelopment analysis-based effectiveness measurement to evaluate the operational performance of the electric power industry in China’s 30 provincial regions during the 2006–2010 periods. Both the efficiency and effectiveness of the electricity generation system in each region are measured, and the associated electricity sales effects and electricity reallocation effects are captured. Based on the results of the effectiveness measures, the alternative operational performance improvement strategies and potentials in terms of input resources savings and electricity generation adjustments are proposed. The empirical results indicate that the current interregional electricity transmission and reallocation efforts are effective in China overall, and a moderate increase in electricity generation with a view to improving the effect on sales is more crucial for improving effectiveness.
