Nader Ale Ebrahim, Shamsuddin Ahmed & Zahari Taha
New interaction tools such as internet allow companies to gain valuable input from research and development (R&D) engineers via virtual teams. Consequently, engineers also get more expertise in diminutive timeframes. Virtual R&D teams present the key impetus to the technology acquisition process. The present knowledge-economy era is characterized by short product life-cycles. Virtual R&D teams may reduce time-to-market, make available a large pool of new product know-how and provide greater flexibilities, which are the key...

Does Criticisms Overcome The Praises Of Journal Impact Factor

Nader Ale Ebrahim نادر آل ابراهیم, Hadi Farhadi & Nader Ale Ebrahim نادر آل ابراهیم
Journal impact factor (IF) as a gauge of influence and impact of a particular journal comparing with other journals in the same area of research, reports the mean number of citations to the published articles in particular journal. Although, IF attracts more attention and being used more frequently than other measures, it has been subjected to criticisms, which overcome the advantages of IF. Critically, extensive use of IF may result in destroying editorial and researchers'...

Abstract

Effective Strategies For Increasing Citation Frequency

Nader Ale Ebrahim نادر آل ابراهیم & Nader Ale Ebrahim نادر آل ابراهیم
Due to the effect of citation impact on The Higher Education (THE) world university ranking system, most of the researchers are looking for some helpful techniques to increase their citation record. This paper by reviewing the relevant articles extracts 33 different ways for increasing the citations possibilities. The results show that the article visibility has tended to receive more download and citations. This is probably the first study to collect over 30 different ways to...

Nader Ale Ebrahim, Shamsuddin Ahmed, Zahari Taha & M. A. Wazed
Use of common parts for different products (commonality) is important methods for managing product variety and preserving competitiveness in the age of mass customization and supply chain competition. In literature, the advantages of inclusion of common components in a product family are well established. Unfortunately, most of the works have been conducted via simulation or conceptual thinking. The mathematical models in the premises are not adequate for production, planning and control in multistage production. This...
