[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This study based on the technology acceptance model(TAM) and theory of planned behaviour (TPB) presents an extended TAM that integrates trust related construct (‘perceived credibility’) and resource-related constructs (‘perceived cost’) into the TAM to analyzing adoption behavior of mobile service. The proposed model was empirically tested using data collected from a survey of mobile service consumers. The structural equation modeling technique was used to evaluate the causal model and confirmatory factor analysis was performed to examine the reliability and validity of the measurement model. Our findings indicated that all variables except perceived ease of use significantly affected users’ behavioral intention. The implication of this work to both researchers and practitioners is discussed.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In this paper, we establish the supervision game model between government quality supervision department and production enterprises who establish a quality management system, based on the production enterprises decide how to establish a quality management system in order to improve the products quality level and government quality supervision department decides how to supervise more effectively. Through analyzing the game theory model of pure strategy Nash equilibrium, dominant strategy and mixed strategy Nash equilibrium, we reveal the supervision game internal operations mechanism between the government quality supervision department and the production enterprises who establish a quality management system, which points out the direction for the supervision game model to apply in practice.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: An integrated technology acceptance model, which comes from the theory of planned behavior and the extended technology acceptance model with perceived credibility based on the mobile servicespsila characteristics, is used to identify the factors that affect consumer intention to use mobile services. The results indicate that the Integrated technology acceptance model has significant effect on explaining behavioral intention to use mobile services.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This research briefly introduces the Theory of Planned Behavior and the Technology Acceptance Model, extends the Technology Acceptance Model with Perceived Credibility based on the mobile services' characteristics. An Integrated Technology Acceptance Model, which comes from the Theory of Planned Behavior and the improved Technology Acceptance Model, is used to identify the factors that affect consumer intention to use mobile services. The results generated by Structural equation model indicate that the Integrated Technology Acceptance Model has significant effect on explaining behavioral intention to use mobile services.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: To satisfy improvement requirements for business process, the quantitative analysis method for process reengineering is established. Firstly, the method presents the Petri Nets (PN) model for the process of business flow of manufacturing system; secondly, the analyzing method based on behavior expressions is adopted to deal with the performance evaluation of the PN model, and the functional relations among different processes of business is also presented. The analysis results facilitate the reengineering of the business processes, help to enhance the throughput, reduce the resource use and balance the process control. At last, a modeling and analyzing example for the process plan design is presented.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The manufacturing industry is experiencing a major change from mass production to mass customization. Both dedicated machine line (DMLs) and flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) fail to deal with the new market characteristics in a cost-effective manner. One alternative is reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMSs) that can provide a high degree of capacity scalability and functional adaptability through different configurations. The reconfiguration ability of RMSs, however, leads to great challenges over product scheduling. On the one hand, the product scheduling should take into consideration possible configurations; on the other hand, the configuration should meet the needs of scheduling. These two issues are closely related and have a strong impact on each other. Therefore, the product scheduling and configuration should be concurrently addressed to obtain the optimal or near-optimal solutions. In the paper, firstly, an integrated model based on deterministic timed Petri nets (DTPN) is developed to deal with the two problems simultaneously; secondly, the heuristic search algorithm is proposed to obtain the optimal or near-optimal solutions; lastly, an example of aerospace automobile electromechanical manufacturing line is presented to verify the efficiency and effectivity of the proposed model and algorithm.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The integration of global economics improves the international development of Asian enterprises. During this process, how human resource management (HRM) contributes to the core competence of an enterprise becomes the focus of discussion. This paper firstly talks about the significance of strategic human resource management (SHRM) based on analyzing Porter's Generic Strategies. And secondly it summarizes the existing status of Asian enterprises' human resource management. Finally, this paper represents a model of SHRM of an Asian enterprise with traditional Asian culture during its course of internationalization. And it also brings forward three main points of SHRM as following: first, matching the vision of the enterprise; second, adapting to different cultures; and last, absorbing advanced western managerial techniques under the guidance of classic oriental ideologies.
