Abstract

Das Wissenslabor Betriebswirtschaft ist eine internetbasierte Lehr-, Lern- und Kommunikationsumgebung, die im Rahmen eines Kooperationsprojektes von mehreren Thüringer Universitäten entwickelt wird. Ausgehend von einer Beschreibung der grundlegenden Zielsetzungen und einer Einordnung in das Begriffsspektrum des E-Learning, wird das Wissenslabor Betriebswirtschaft anhand seiner Architektur und seines integrierten Geschäftsmodells vorgestellt. English Abstract: The internet-based teaching, learning and communication system Business Administration Knowledge Laboratory (WiLabBW) is developed and continuously expanded within a co-operation project of Thuringian universities. The paper gives a survey of the basic goals and the systematization of the WiLabBW within the general e-learning approach, explains its architecture and business model.

Assembly line balancing problems (ALBP) arise whenever an assembly line is configured, redesigned or adjusted. An ALBP consists of distributing the total workload for manufacturing any unit of the products to be assembled among the work stations along the line. The sequence-dependent assembly line balancing problem (SDALBP) is an extension of the standard simple assembly line balancing problem (SALBP) which has significant relevance in real-world assembly line settings. SDALBP extends the basic problem by considering sequence-dependent task times. In this paper, we define this new problem, formulate several versions of a mixed-integer program, adapt solution approaches for SALBP to SDALBP, generate test data and perform some preliminary computational experiments. As a main result, we find that applying SALBP-based search procedures is very effective, whereas modelling and solving the problem with MIP standard software is not recommendable.

This paper provides empirical tests of hypotheses of cooperative behavior provided by evolutionary approaches in the resource-based view of the firm. The influences of "technological proximity", individual incentives to cooperate and managerial tools to the choice of research partner are analyzed. Using German patent data we can show the positive influence of those three determinants. The results of this paper confirm theories dealing with the path-dependency of research activities.

Graf H. and Henning T. Public research in regional networks of innovators: a comparative study of four East German regions, Regional Studies. Universities and public research organizations are said to be integrative and essential elements of a functioning innovation system. Four East German regional networks of innovators are analysed and the characteristic role of public research within these networks is investigated by applying methods of social network analysis using patent data. The results show that universities and non-university institutions of public research are key actors in all regional networks. Differences between regional innovative performance seem to be related to differences in the structural properties of the networks. [image omitted] Graf H. et Henning T. La recherche publique sur les reseaux regionaux d'innovateurs: une etude comparative de quatre regions situees en Allemagne de l'Est, Regional Studies. On dit que les universites et les etablissements de recherche publics constituent des parties integrantes et essentielles d'un systeme d'innovation operationnel. Ici, on analyse quatre reseaux regionaux d'innovateurs en Allemagne de l'Est et a examiner le role type de la recherche publique au sein de ces reseaux en employant des methodes qui cherche a analyser les reseaux sociaux a partir des donnees sur les brevets. Les resultats laissent voir que les universites et les etablissements de recherche publique en dehors des universites sont des elements cle de tout reseau regional. Il semble que les differences de la performance regionale d'innovation se rapportent aux differences des proprietes structurelles des reseaux.

Es besteht empirische Evidenz, dass reale Spieler weitaus mehr Vertrauen und Vertrauenswürdigkeit entwickeln als es nach den Voraussagen der klassischen Spieltheorie rational ist. Das Papier skizziert den Indirekt Evolutionären Ansatz zur Erklärung der Entstehung von Vertrauen nach Güth und Kliemt (2000). Nach einer kurzen methodischen Diskussion des Ansatzes wird dessen Ergebnis im Rahmen eines alternativen verhaltensorientierten Erklärungsmodells zunächst reproduziert und durch den Aspekt der sozialen Integration erweitert. Es zeigt sich, dass eine Senkung der Screening-Kosten die Investitionen in soziale Integration zurückdrängt.

The paper investigates the optimal regulation of a (software) firm which acts as a natural monopolist, who also offers a complementary good (IT services) on a competitive market. It is shown that a first-best-regulation accompanyied with an optimal taxation schedule in order to compensate the losses is equivalent to a cross-subsidisation of the software by the complementary good. This is the same result as in business models with Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS). Even if a price of zero for F/OSS does not reflect the use of resources for software development, the price system in F/OSS related markets leads to a welfare improving allocation. F/OSS license models can be seen as institutional arrangements which mimick a social planner.
