  1. Reference Model for Strategic Supply Network Development

    Antonia Albani; Nikolaus Muessigmann; Johannes M. Zaha
    Based on rapidly changing market conditionsand increasing pressure on cost and productivity,companies in different industries have startedto concentrate on their core competencies andto decrease vertical range of manufacture. Thisresulted in an increasing dependency between theproducing companies and their suppliers. Enterprisenetworks are formed creating the necessityto focus on the strategic development of supplynetwork partners. While currently strategic purchasingmainly deals with direct suppliers, futurestrategic purchasing needs to deal with flexibleand dynamic supply networks. This results in aparadigm shift in the domain of strategic sourcingfrom a supplier-centric to a supply networkscope. In order to support the paradigm shift,the development of a reference model...

  5. The economic impact of tourism in six German national parks

    Marius Mayer; Martin Müller; Manuel Woltering; Julius Arnegger; Hubert Job
    Tourism in protected areas can create considerable income for adjacent communities. Based on face-to-face visitor surveys, the present study measures the structure, size and economic impact of tourist expenditure in the six German national parks Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer, Bayerischer Wald, Eifel, Müritz, Hainich and Kellerwald-Edersee. We find that mean daily expenditure per person is considerably below the national averages for tourists in Germany: day-trippers spend between EUR 7 and 13 per day (national average: EUR 28), whereas overnight visitors spend between EUR 37 and 57 (national average: EUR 120). The proportion of visitors with high national park affinity varies between a...

  6. Identifying Business Components on the Basis of an Enterprise Ontology

    Antonia Albani; Jan L. G. Dietz; Johannes Maria Zaha
    Companies are more and more focusing on their core competencies, outsourcingbusiness tasks to their business partners. In order to support collaboration between businesspartners, adequate information systems need to be built automating inter-organizationalbusiness processes. The bases for such information systems are business componentscombining software artefacts from different vendors to applications which are individual toeach customer. The crucial factors in identifying and building reusable, marketable and selfcontainedbusiness components are the appropriateness and the quality of the underlyingbusiness domain models. This paper therefore introduces a process for the identification ofbusiness components based on an enterprise ontology, being a business domain modelsatisfying well defined...

  10. From Reference Model to Component Model

    Antonia Albani; Johannes Maria Zaha
    Stable component models are an essential prerequisite for developingcustomer-individual business applications. Thereby the information for theidentification and specification of their components is gained from domainmodels. Reference models constitute a potential source for building enterprisespecificdomain models. Based on the analysis of existing reference models,this article shows how information available through reference models can beused for the development of stable component models. The derivation ofinformation required for the identification and specification of reusablebusiness components is discussed using example reference modellingtechniques. Additionally, potential extensions of existing reference modellingtechniques are shown.

  13. Productive organizational energy as a mediator in the contextual ambidexterity-performances relation

    Christian Schudy; Heike Bruch
    Contextual ambidexterity has been proposed to be crucial for company performance. Yet, only little is known about how contextual ambidexterity impacts firm performance. Based on prior research, we propose contextual ambidexterity to drive productive organizational energy toward the organizational overarching goals which in turn will positively impact firm performance. Our results support all four hypotheses by showing (a) contextual ambidexterity to facilitate firm performance, (b) contextual ambidexterity to positively impact productive organizational energy, (c) productive organizational energy to fosters firm performance, and ultimately (d) productive organizational energy acting as a partial mediator in the positive relation between contextual ambidexterity and...

  15. Leistungsmodellierung als Voraussetzung für Produktionsplanung und -steuerung (PPS) für die Bereitstellung von IT-Services

    Alexander Vogedes; Nico Ebert; Henrik Brocke; Falk Uebernickel; Walter Brenner
    Steigender Kostendruck und zunehmende Dienstleistungsorientierung erfordern ein Umdenken beim Einsatz von Methoden zum Management der Bereitstellung von IT-Services. Wurden in der Vergangenheit primär Projektmanagementmethoden genutzt, rücken mit zunehmender IT-Service-Standardisierung Methoden aus der Sachgüterfertigung in den Mittelpunkt. In diesem Beitrag wird dargestellt, welche Möglichkeiten und Grenzen industrielle Produktionsplanungs- und -steuerungssysteme für die Bereitstellung von IT-Services am konkreten Fallbeispiel der Global Delivery Unit SAP Services der T-Systems Enterprise Services GmbH aufweisen.

  16. Integration of SOA-ready Networked Embedded Devices in Enterprise Systems via a Cross-Layered Web Service Infrastructure

    Stamatis Karnouskos; Oliver Baecker; Luciana Moreira Sá De Souza; Patrik Spiess
    Today manufacturers require efficient reaction to critical events occurring at the shop floor. Therefore, device-level data needs to be integrated into business processes in a standardized and flexible way to avoid time-consuming media breaks. Current approaches are characterized by a late indication of changes in the production environment and a delayed implementation of changed production plans. As a solution, we propose a web service-based integration of enterprise systems with shop-floor activities, using SOA-ready networked embedded devices. We examine the requirements for the integration and derive an appropriate architecture that tries to close the integration gap. The timely provision of data, the impact of device-level information on business processes, as well as the direct bidirectional...

  19. Design for Business Innovation: Linking the value chains of logistics service and cargo insurance companies by designing a collaborative service infrastructure

    Alexander C.H. Skorna; Christoph Bode; Oliver Baecker; Jan Vom Brocke; Elgar Fleisch
    Both, the logistics and insurance companies rely on software intensive systems and IT-infrastructure to run their core business operational. In recent years IT-improvements have resulted e.g. in better tracking and tracing capabilities for the whole logistics industry. Designing an interface in this case between the logistics and insurance value chain further enhances visibility and transparency on transportation. Though, the design of a large collaborative service infrastructure is a complex task. In this paper, we investigate whether design science supports this. The research follows design science guidelines creating a message hub based on sensor telematics technologies, which physically links the two...
