Garcia-Sabater, J. P.; Maheut, J. & Marin-Garcia, J. A. (2013). A New Formulation Technique to Model Materials and Operations Planning: The Generic Materials and Operations Planning (GMOP) Problem. European Journal of Industrial Engineering 7[2], 119-147.

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.

Keyword: Alternative bill of materials; Alternative operations; Alternative routings; Generic Materials and Operations Planning; Material Requirement Planning; Packaging; Product substitution; Reverse bill of materials; Stroke; Supply chain management.

Perello-Marin, M. R.; Marin-Garcia, J. A. & Marcos-Cuevas, J. (2013). Towards a Path Dependence Approach to Study Management Innovation. Management Decision 51[5], 1037-1046.

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;

Marin-Garcia, J. A.; Alfalla-Luque, R. & Medina-L贸pez, C. (2013). Supply Chain Integration Scales Validation and Benchmark Values. Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management 6[2], 423-440.


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.

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.)

Marin-Garcia, J. A. & Conci, G. (2012). Verification of the reflective model of first order factorsfor reward and empowerment constructs based on questionnaires derived from Lawler et al. (1991). Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management, 5, 473-495


Purpose: High involvement practices have traditionally been classified in four main categories: training, communication, rewards and empowerment. In order to measure the degree of implementation of these programs, different questionnaires have been developed. In this paper, we have identified 3 types of questionnaires and we have deeply analyzed the psychometrical properties of one of these types: questionnaires derived from Lawler et al. (1991). The most recent investigation seems to show that psychometrical properties of both training and communication constructs are appropriate. However, it is necessary to work on rewards and empowerment scales. This research聽 analyzes, by means of confirmatory factorial, two reflective measurement models, already present in the previous literature of rewards and empowerment scales.
Design/methodology/approach: Spanish samples from 1997 (n=105), as well as United States ones (n=212 dating 1996 and n=143 dating 1999) have been used. Convergent and discriminant validity were tested.
Findings and Originality/value: None of the models presents and acceptable adjustment in the used samples. Therefore, a possible future line of investigation in order to check whether the measurement model of rewards and empowerment constructs is formative instead of reflective, has been opened.

Practical implications: Practitioners can profit from the results of this research because questionnaires validity will allow companies to have measurement and good practices diagnosis tools that can be used either for internal benchmarking or for the comparison with reference groups of companies.
Originality/value: Our paper identifies three questionnaire typologies used in the field of investigations of rewards and empowerment practices. We show that the point of view with which the scales of theses questionnaires have been treated has always been reflective. Moreover, this is one of the few papers that have checked the validity of the measurement model of questionnaires derived from Lawler et al. (1991). It questions the validity of a single questionnaire with similar samples, of different years, and simultaneously, with samples from same years but from different countries.

El objetivo del presente trabajo fue analizar el uso y las preferencias de uso entre el profesorado universitario sobre nueve din谩micas de trabajo en grupo. Para ello se realiz贸 una encuesta a una muestra de 193 profesores de universidades espa帽olas. El an谩lisis de datos mediante an谩lisis de correspondencias m煤ltiples permiti贸 identificar tres grupos de profesores en cuanto al uso de estas t茅cnicas y otros dos adicionales relativos a las preferencias de uso. Dichos perfiles fueron caracterizados por medio de la informaci贸n sobre el perfil profesional de los profesores. Concretamente los factores m谩s significativos resultaron ser el 谩rea de conocimiento, la experiencia docente, y los conocimientos y opini贸n que se posee de las metodolog铆as activas.
