This paper studies the design of process-innovation incentives in supplier networks. A real-life case study from the boat-building industry is presented to illustrate the importance of explicitly encouraging suppliers to continuous improvement. Motivated by the case study, we construct a game theory model trying to capture the possible conflicting interests(More)
– The paper describes a probabilistic method for transmission grid security evaluation. The most efficient contributions to the system reliability can be found with the probabilistic methods. The method uses event and fault trees and combines them with power system dynamic simulations. Event trees model the substation protection and trip operations after(More)
This thesis explores the applicability of game theory to the modelling of enterprise networks. Although these networks have traditionally been studied by the qualitative methods of industrial management, the utilisation of game theory seems to provide new tools and solution concepts for studying them. The thesis reviews earlier game theoretic studies on(More)
This thesis studies two management problems of collaborative networks. First, optimal partner selection is studied in the context of temporary project organisations, called virtual organisations (VO). Second, utility-sharing mechanisms that steer the network partners away from suboptimal behaviour are studied through game theoretic models. Both research(More)
