Call for papers: "Applications of Data Envelopment Analysis in Manufacturing"

2017-03-23T15:00:07.260+00:00

For a special issue of the International Journal of Engineering Management and Economics.

The manufacturing sector is a major driver of growth for the economy of several countries. Technological progress and the increased wealth of consumers have stimulated manufacturing companies to sell a large variety of products in the market. Market competition has become more and more globalised, complex, and uncertain, therefore, the manufacturing environment has been drastically affected by such changes.

The need for lowering operations costs, improving production efficiency and productivity, increasing flexibility and meeting environmental requirements has made managers’ decision-making very hard, forcing firms to deal with a huge number of metrics to constantly evaluate the performance of both their manufacturing system and their competitors.

Non-parametric methods based on the data envelopment analysis (DEA) approach are now widely used and accepted as benchmarking and performance evaluation techniques. This is different from conventional statistical methods which focus on central tendencies, DEA is interested in identifying units that are either on the frontier of best performers or units which are far from them providing information that conventional methods are unable to discover. Furthermore, as DEA allows for the analysis of a multiplicity of inputs and outputs of the manufacturing system at the same time, it provides a comprehensive investigation of its performance.

We aim to address research on applications of data envelopment analysis in the broad area of manufacturing. This special issue welcomes both methodological contributions and empirical quantitative research based on surveys, case studies, etc. Interdisciplinary research is also encouraged.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Measuring eco-efficiency in production
  • Supplier selection and ranking
  • Selection of manufacturing technologies
  • Measuring performance of the supply and logistic chain
  • Performance analysis of manufacturing companies and sectors
  • Performance evaluation of production processes
  • Methodological advances of DEA

Employers! You’re having a laugh, aren’t you?

2017-03-21T13:52:57.061+00:00

Can humour on social media help managers find the most appropriate candidates for the job vacancies they hope to fill? Writing in the International Journal of Internet Marketing and Advertising, researchers from Finland, suggest that humorous recruitment campaigns can increase exposure for a given job advertisement but conversely the approach might lead to flippant applications at which point it might be difficult to separate the serious candidate from an inappropriate one. The team also suggests that choosing a particular social media channel over another may skew the type of applicants they receive for a given job, for better or worse.

Eeva-Liisa Oikarinen of Oulu Business School and Jaakko Sinisalo of Oulu University of Applied Sciences have carried out a case study of the social media recruitment campaign of a high-profile company operating in the architecture industry. The campaign used amusing text and graphics to entice people to apply for a specific vacancy and to differentiate the company from others in the market for job applicants.

The use of humour in consumer marketing is well known, indeed humour in marketing is probably as old as selling itself. However, in marketing an employment vacancy has been little used and advertising of jobs tends to be a rather dry affair. The team points out that where it has been used little research has been done to track the pros and cons. There is the potential, as with any marketing, for humour to be a double edged sword, the team suggests, with it having the potential to harm a company’s credibility and reputation if the humour is misplaced or causes offence.

Conversely, the humorous campaign can backfire if a responsive candidate is found and yet the work environment does not fit the jocular image projected. Moreover, some serious candidates perfectly suitable for the job may be put off from applying by the flippant nature of the campaign.
