Abstract:
En este art铆culo, describimos los datos recogidos en las entrevistas realizadas a 101 directores de producci贸n y en las visitas posteriores a sus plantas. En nuestros an谩lisis, podemos observar que existen diferencias significativas en el grado de uso de determinadas herramientas de gesti贸n de la producci贸n, cuando agrupamos a las empresas por tipo de producto que fabrican. Tambi茅n hemos apreciado que las empresas con m谩s de 150 trabajadores en plantilla, usan m谩s las herramientas contempladas en nuestra investigaci贸n (ISO-9000, mejora continua en grupos, mantenimiento preventivo, controles de calidad…). Adem谩s, hemos comprobado que existen algunas herramientas, como por ejemplo el SMED, que apenas se han implantado en las empresas del sector.

Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to review the concept of innovation capacity in higher education students, proposing
constructs for a measurement model of innovation capacity as a second-order formative model and validation of measurement
scales with 332 students from a Spanish university. The proposed model can be considered to meet, in general, the criteria for
content validity and the validation tests suitable for the formative model. Thus, the academic community can benefit from a validated
measurement instrument that can be used in the future to collect data on dependent and independent variables in causal
models. The paper also presents a contribution for teaching professionals interested in measuring the degree of development of
innovation competence in their students.
Keywords: questionnaire validation, innovation, competence, capacity, skills, assessment, higher education, PLS.
Resumen: Este trabajo presenta una definici贸n de la capacidad de innovaci贸n de los estudiantes universitarios. Para ello se propondr谩
el modelo de medida de las variables latentes, considerando la capacidad de innovaci贸n como un modelo de segundo orden
formativo. Las escalas se han validado con una muestra de 332 estudiantes universitarios espa帽oles. Podemos considerar que
el modelo propuesto cumple, en general, con los criterios de validez de contenido y las pruebas de validaci贸n de escalas formativas.
Ofrecemos a la comunidad acad茅mica un instrumento validado que puede ser usado, en el futuro, para medir variables dependientes
o independientes de modelos causales. Tambi茅n representa una contribuci贸n para los profesores universitarios interesados
en evaluar el grado de desarrollo de la competencia de innovaci贸n en sus alumnos.

Abstract:
This paper presents a technique that mathematically models relationships between operations and materials, which amends the usual technique used to model Materials and Resources Requirement Planning through Mathematical Programming. This technique represents operations and materials requirement planning by extending the bill of materials concept beyond the Gozinto structure. This so-called Generic Materials and Operations Planning (GMOP) Problem is based on the “stroke” concept. The decision variables are the operations (strokes) each resource is capable of, and not materials or resources. This form extends modeling capacity to transformation operations, resource and product substitution, and material transportation. It considers most conventional bills of materials types (direct, alternative and reverse BOMs, alternative resources and routings) with the same data structure. It contemplates multi-level problem modeling, and even packaging and alternative transport modes. The same data structure represents these characteristics. The problem, its mathematical modeling approach and examples illustrating its use are provided.

Abstract:
Purpose – Scholars in social sciences tend to use the term of path dependence without explaining
exactly what they mean by it Path dependence is a useful approach to understand the success or
otherwise of the implementation of management innovation. The aim of this paper is to identify under
which conditions it makes sense to talk about path dependence, and the relevance of using path
dependence to the analysis of management innovation
Designlmethodology/appmach – The path dependence literature in different contexts and
knowledge areas within social science is reviewed using a nanative approach
Findings – The concept of path dependence can be used to study management innovation,
particular ly when analyzing the introduction of new management practices The authors argue that
the order in which management practices are introduced has a profound effect on the outcomes for the
organization When the appropriate practices are introduced first, these create enhanced capabilities
for the implementation of subsequent practices. If inappropriate practices are rolled out, they may
severely impede management innovation and thus evolution and change of the firm
Research limitations/implications – This work highlights the need to conduct further research to
understand the interaction between existing practices and the new ones This study can be extended
with an empirical work to corroborate the results presented here
Originality/value – By reviewing the different definitions of path dependence that exist in the
literature, this paper will stimulate a debate on the necessary and sufficient conditions of path
dependence and encourage a greater level of clarity in the management innovation area.

1. Introduction
In an increasingly competitive environment, in which changes happen so r搂lpidly,
organizations endeavor to evolve in order to achieve a sustainable competitive
advantage .. Firms’ emphasis on maximizing flexibility and adaptability to continuous
change becomes key to ensure future success changes (Adamides and Pomonis, 2009;
Antonelli, 2009; Burnes, 2004b; Farinos聽 et aI, 2011; Karlsson and Ahlstrom, 1996;

Abstract:

Purpose: The clarification of the constructs of the supply chain integration (clients, suppliers, external and internal), the creation of a measurement instrument based on a list of items taken from earlier papers, the validation of these scales and a preliminary benchmark to interpret the scales by percentiles based on a set of control variables (size of the plant, country, sector and degree of vertical integration).

Design/methodology/approach: Our empirical analysis is based on the HPM project database (2005-2007 timeframe). The international sample is made up of 266 plants across ten countries: Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, Sweden and the USA. In each country. We analized the descriptive statistics, internal consistency testing to purify the items (inter-item correlations, Cronbach’s alpha, squared multiple correlation, corrected item-total correlation), exploratory factor analysis, and finally, a confirmatory factor analysis to check the convergent and discriminant validity of the scales. The analyses will be done with the SPSS and EQS programme using the maximum likelihood parameter estimation method.

Findings: The four proposed scales show excellent psychometric properties.

Research limitations/implications: with a clearer and more concise designation of the supply chain integration measurement scales more reliable and accurate data could be taken to analyse the relations between these constructs with other variables of interest to the academic l fields.

Practical implications: providing scales that are valid as a diagnostic tool for best practices, as well as providing a benchmark with which to compare the score for each individual plant against a collection of industrial companies from the machinery, electronics and transportation sectors.

Originality/value: supply chain integration may be a major factor in explaining the performance of companies. The results are nevertheless inconclusive, the vast range of results obtained are due, amongst other things, to the fact that there is no exactness to the group of scales used, no-one has yet published an analysis of the measurement models nor clear benchmarks as to the variety of the scales used.

Abstract:
En este art铆culo se han identificaci贸n varias preguntas a plantear para identificar la relaci贸n entre los programas de recursos humanos de alta implicaci贸n (HIWP) y el desempe帽o organizativo: 驴qu茅 constructos medir?, 驴c贸mo medirlos?, 驴qu茅 prevalencia tienen los constructos?, 驴c贸mo act煤an los HIWP?, 驴cu谩les son las variables moderadoras a contemplar?, 驴qu茅 correlaci贸n existe entre los constructos?). Analizar cu谩les de ellas est谩n respondidas ya y cu谩les no y plantear una posible l铆nea de trabajo para resolver las cuestiones pendientes. Los resultados apuntan a una necesidad de seguir haciendo aportaciones en la investigaci贸n sobre relaci贸n de HIWP y desempe帽o organizativo mediante estudios transversales. Tambi茅n se van a dar recomendaciones de hacia d贸nde se pueden orientar esas aportaciones para ayudar a tener integraciones (meta-an谩lisis) m谩s potentes en el futuro. Todo ello con el fin de abrir un debate acad茅mico sobre estos temas y para ofrecer a potenciales autores un espacio donde publicar sus resultados de investigaci贸n si deciden investigar en estas l铆neas y no encuentran otros canales de publicaci贸n acad茅mica que consideren m谩s interesantes que la revista WPOM.

(Article raises several questions to identify the relationship between high involvement human resource programs (HIWP) and organizational performance: which constructs to measure?, how to measure them?, and what are the constructs prevalence?, how HIWP works ?, what are the moderating variables to consider?, and what correlation exists between the constructs? Then we analyze which of them are answered already, and which are not. This raises a possible line of work to resolve outstanding issues. The results point to a need for further research on HIWP and organizational performance relationship through cross-sectional studies. Will also give recommendations to where these contributions can be oriented to help take integrations (meta-analysis) more powerful in the future. All this, in order to open an academic debate on these issues and to provide a space where potential authors publish their research results if they decide to investigate on these lines and found no other academic publication channels they find more interesting than WPOM the journal.)
