R&D-cooperation by small and medium sized companies
1991 Edition, January 1, 1991 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

It is suggested that there is reason to suppose that small and medium-sized manufacturing companies (SMEs) are dependent to a growing degree on R&D cooperation, this being governed by the size and direction of a company's...

Software development process tailoring for small and medium sized companies
2014 Edition, June 1, 2014 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Software development process tailoring is an emerging practice in today's IT industry. A limited number of research works have been published in this area. The existing process tailoring approaches describe similar set of operations and do not provide proper guidelines on performing process...

Implementing Software Effort Estimation in a Medium-sized Company
2011 Edition, June 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Effort estimation in software development projects is far from being an easy task. In fact, despite the several effort estimation techniques available in the literature and the need for companies to perform such task in a daily basis, most small and...

Applying Product Line Concepts in Small and Medium-Sized Companies
2000 Edition, Volume 17, September 1, 2000 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Small and medium-sized enterprises work under heavy constraints: They need to be very flexible and fast in their reaction to customer requests, thus limiting their possibility for long-term planning. In a partially publicly funded project, the authors have started...

Introducing a software modeling concept in a medium-sized company
2000 Edition, January 1, 2000 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Describes, using the Quality Improvement Paradigm (QIP), how an improvement project aimed at improving the modeling and documentation approach of a medium-sized company (Markant Su/spl uml/dwest Software und Dienstleistungs GmbH) was conducted. We discuss the new...

IT Service Management from a Perspective of Small and Medium Sized Companies
2016 Edition, September 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Most of the existing information security management studies focus on information security of large organizations preventing security threats. However, a security management perspective of a small and medium-sized (SME) company is relatively different....

Logistics service provider as a business growth raiser of small and medium sized companies
2009 Edition, August 1, 2009 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This study focuses on a company network that develops, produces, markets, sells and delivers windmills for consumers. The hub company of the network has concentrated on R&D, marketing, and its subcontractors and logistics service provider performs...

Management Information System for small and medium-sized forwarding companies
2010 Edition, July 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The deregulation of the German transport market in 1993 and of the road haulage rates in 1998 faced forwarder companies to new challenges [1]. The changes necessitated a success and cost control as well as a consistent use of improvement potentials. These are essential...

Introducing sensitive compliant robots for assembly operations in a medium-sized company
2016 Edition, September 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In this paper the developmental process of a flexible robot-based assembly cell by a research institute in cooperation with the cells end-user is described. The developed cell contains novel processes-such as the assembly of parts with only minimal geometrical clearance-and is...

Toward an agent oriented virtual organization dedicated to risk prevention in small and medium size companies
2002 Edition, January 1, 2002 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This article presents a grid architecture allowing the implementation of virtual organization based on work done in the field of multi-agent systems. A model of communication architecture allowing the exchange of information between distributed information systems is presented. The AUDI-R...
