  • Willingness to pay and wait for mass customised products   Order a copy of this article
    by Hassan Kalantari Daronkola, Lester W Johnson 
    Abstract: Researchers have investigated whether customers would be willing to pay more for mass customised products and also whether they would wait to receive them. But surprisingly, these two issues have not been examined simultaneously. We describe a study where we use conjoint analysis, a market research technique, to examine the customer trade-off between price, delivery waiting time and type of customisation in the walking stick market in Australia. Our approach should be relatively easily repeatable in other mass customisation markets.
    Keywords: Mass Customised products; conjoint analysis; willingness to pay; willingness to wait; segmentation.

Special Issue on: Sustainable Supply Chain Management and Production

    by Nina Vojdani, Mathias Knop 
    Abstract: Supply chain networks change continuously due to varying objectives, requirements as well as restrictions. The ability of supply chain networks to adapt to changing requirements, especially in fast moving industries, is decisive. As sustainability issues in supply chain management are increasingly concerned among companies, adequate approaches for redesign and replanning considering sustainability become essential. This paper proposes a fuzzy based approach to support the dynamic design and planning of sustainable supply chain networks from a stakeholders perspective. An approach is introduced to define and select sustainability measures. In addition, a continuous monitoring of stakeholder requirements, supply chain performance, and market trends accounts for the necessity of redesign and replanning. The approach will qualify companies to select sustainability measures to handle rising complexity within sustainable supply chain decision making context. The findings contribute to the literature on stakeholder management within sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) research.
    Keywords: supply chain design; sustainable supply chain management; stakeholder management; stakeholder requirement; sustainability measure; replanning; redesign; fuzzy logic.
