Abstract

This volume presents papers from the fourth biennial Information Systems Foundation Workshop, held at The Australian National University in Canberra from 2–3 October, 2008. The focus of the workshop was, as for the others in the series, the foundations of Information Systems as an academic discipline. The emphasis in this workshop was on the movement known as ‘Design Science’ and its importance in practical disciplines such as Information Systems. The chapters in the volume provide a critical examination of current design science ideas, with the role of human creativity given special mention. The philosophical underpinnings of design science thinking are also examined. Practically, the volume shows how the design science approach can be used in academic research that leads to artefacts that add value for individuals, organizations and society.

Abstract

Companies with high-performing supply chains enjoy essential competitive ad- vantages. However, supply chain management faces an environment of rising risk that endangers these competitive advantages. One of the reasons is to outsource parts of their business. This bears the risk of significantly increased lead times and lead time variability. It is the impact of lead time variability on inventory management that is the central aspect of this book. It describes a mathematical model for dual sourcing with two reorder points, shows the deviation between stochastic and deterministic calculations in a sensitivity analysis, and investigates different relaxations of a traditional dual-sourcing policy.

Abstract

On occation of the end of the founding phase of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences with the integration of the formerly independent Hamburg University of Economics and Politics (HWP) as well as the former Faculties of Economics and Social Sciences of the University of Hamburg, a scientific symposium on university governance with a top-class cast was held. The aim was to compare different management models, especially from other European countries, and to analyse and evaluate them from an experience-based management perspective as well as from a scientific-analytical point of view. A special aspect was the tension between centrality and decentralisation, which is relevant for all universities. The lectures are documented in this volume.

Abstract

The coast is one of our most valuable assets but how is it being treated and what is being done to look after it? Coastal Management in Australia is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of this important subject. Interesting case studies are used to illustrate human impact on coastal processes as well as demonstrating the global significance of the coast and the international imperative to manage it properly.

Coastal Management in Australia introduces the background to the various coastal management systems operating in Australia and illustrates these with ‘real world’ examples from the different states and territories.

Since this book was first published yet another parliamentary inquiry has been added to some 30 years of national inquiries into coastal management, with further calls for national co-ordination. In addition, the Australian government has focused attention on the potential risks of climate change for the Australian coast.

Both authors have national and international coastal expertise; significant academic teaching experience in coastal processes and coastal management; coastal planning and policy skills; and have extensive government expertise in coastal management.

Abstract

La prise de décision est au coeur du travail de gestionnaire. Or, la toute première étape de ce processus semble être la moins bien maîtrisée : formuler clairement le problème à résoudre. Tout comme l'on ne saurait prendre une décision éclairée sur un problème mal circonscrit, on ne peut attendre la collaboration de toutes les parties concernées que si chacun s'accorde à reconnaître la situation à rectifier. Sans cette participation, la meilleure des solutions restera lettre morte. Comment, ...

Abstract

Bei der Umsetzung von Geschäftsmodellen wird verstärkt auf das Architekturkonzept der serviceorientierten Architektur (SOA) zurückgegriffen. Vor dem Hintergrund der wachsenden Komplexität der resultierenden dienstorientierten Systeme stellt die vorliegende Arbeit einen systematischen Ansatz zur effektiven Zusammenführung von Informationen, Werkzeugen und Methodiken in ein übergreifendes und konsistent anwendbares Modell zur Verwaltung und Überwachung dienstorientierter Systemlandschaften vor.

Abstract

Eine der Ursachen für die ungenaue Bestimmung von Service-Levels in IT-Dienstleistungsvereinbarungen liegt in der informellen Repräsentation von IT-Dienstleistungsprozessen. In der Arbeit wird eine integrierte Methode entwickelt, mit der Dienstanbieter verschiedene Qualitätsmerkmale von IT-Dienstleistungen und die zu ihrer Erbringung benötigten IT-Dienstleistungsprozesse modellieren und simulieren können.
