In order to overcome the modeling limitations for management experiments, we proposed to integrate the Internet technology with role-playing, and developed a novel modeling method called similarity-extension modeling method. By the novel method, we found a new way to transform an economic experiment into a management one. The basic steps of similarity-extension modeling are presented, and their applications are illustrated by taking Cournot Oligopoly Management Experiment as an example. In the example, the primary Cournot Oligopoly Management Experiment is first established with reference to the basic element model of the Cournot Oligopoly Economic Experiment, and then how to transform the economic experiment into a management one is focused on in detail by introducing management factors. Finally, an improved quantitative process method is delved into for fuzzy management factors based on the Market Quiz Method in psychology.

    ABSTRACT: This paper seeks to answer the following two questions: which management factors have great effect on the management performance of telework teams? and How should management choose suitable team members for telework? The research will use experimental methods for exploring the novel topic of management performance of telework teams. The experimental design, implementation and result analysis was done by using a computer experimental system we developed. The experimental research results show that an effective way of improving management performance of telework teams relates to the positive and the negative degrees of psychological factors, team factors, ethical factors and individual background. The experimental research results also show that some people are more suitable for telework than others.
