  • Dahan, Ely; Hauser, John; Simester, Duncan; Toubia, Olivier (2002-01)
    In response to the need for more rapid and iterative feedback on customer preferences, researchers are developing new web-based conjoint analysis methods that adapt the design of conjoint questions based on a respondent’s ...
  • Campbell, Ronald B. Jr. (2004-04-14)
    Innovating is essential to sustained industrial growth and profitability. But experience amply demonstrates how difficult innovation is, especially for large companies. The synthesis of valued offerings by aligning customer ...
  • Otto, Kevin (2000)
    This paper presents an approach to determine the proper number of levels required on independent product architectural attributes, given their ability to generate added revenue through more direct targeting to smaller ...
  • de Figueiredo, John; Kyle, Margaret (2001-03-19)
    Why do products exit markets? This paper integrates rationale for product exit from a number of different literatures and compares the statistical and substantive effect of these explanations. We use a novel dataset ...
  • Magee, Christopher; de Weck, Olivier (International Council On Systems Engineering (INCOSE), 2004-07-24)
    The use of terms such as “Engineering Systems”, “System of systems” and others have been coming into greater use over the past decade to denote systems of importance but with implied higher complexity than for the term ...
  • Hsu, David (2000-06-16)
    I empirically study the effect of venture capital (VC) on product development and commercialization strategy of start-up organizations. In doing so, I segment entrant commercialization strategies into two camps according ...
  • Repenning, Nelson (1998-11)
    Understanding the wide range of outcomes achieved by firms trying to implement TQM and similar process improvement initiatives presents a challenge to management science and organization theory: a few firms reap sustained ...
  • Otto, Kevin; Tang, Victor; Seering, Warren (PDMA Toolbook II, 2003-09-13)
    This chapter has two key themes: (1) a list of customer needs is interesting, but insufficient for many development decisions, (2) establishing a quantified, dollar value for each requirement is more helpful. To that end, ...
  • Olivier, Toubia; Duncan, Simester; John, Hauser (2002-02)
    We propose and test a new adaptive conjoint analysis method that draws on recent polyhedral “interior-point” developments in mathematical programming. The method is designed to offer accurate estimates after relatively few ...
  • Abrahamson, Shaun; Wallace, David; Senin, Nicola; Sferro, Peter (2000)
    This paper presents a service marketplace vision for enterprise-wide integrated design modeling. In this environment, expert participants and product development organizations are empowered to publish their geometric ...
  • Wallace, David; Yang, Elaine; Senin, Nicola (2001)
    The potential benefits of mathematically predicting and analyzing the integrated behavior of product concepts throughout the design synthesis cycle are widely recognized. Better up-front integrated design will not only ...
  • Repenning, Nelson (2000-11)
    There is now considerable controversy concerning the role that incremental change plays in the process of organizational transformation. Some scholars assert that incremental change is the primary source of resistance to ...
  • Hauser, John (2001-07)
    The explosion of information and information technology has led many firms to evolve a dispersed product development process with people and organizations spread throughout the world. To coordinate such dispersed processes ...

  • Salminen, Vesa; Pillai, Balan (2000)
    Newton’s second law as written appears simple, but how to use the law perceptually is a complex task. Most of the cases it is good for conceptual discussion or development. Normally the sign convention is not shown and ...
  • Agus, Sudjianto; Otto, Kevin (2001-09-09)
    Methods to determine acceptable architecture for multiple platforms supporting multiple brands must represent both platform cost saving commonization as well as revenue enhancing brand distinctions. Functional architecting ...
  • Hölttä, Katja; Tang, Victor; Seering, Warren (2003)
    A module is a structurally independent building block of a larger system with well-defined interfaces. A module is fairly loosely connected to the rest of the system allowing an independent development of the module as ...
  • Wernerfelt, Birger (2003-11-11)
    The paper is concerned with communication within a team of players trying to coordinate in response to information dispersed among them. The problem is nontrivial because they cannot communicate all information instantaneously, ...
  • Tang, Victor; Huang, Biao (2001)
    The purpose of this paper is to introduce patent litigation as a leading indicator of market growth. We model the intensity of patent litigation and the market growth for the personal computer and cellular phone market ...
  • Eppinger, Steven; Salminen, Vesa (2001-08-21)
    Development of complex products and large systems is a highly interactive social process involving hundreds of people designing thousands of interrelated components and making millions of coupled decisions. Nevertheless, ...
