Tulusan, Johannes, Staake, Thorsten and Fleisch, Elgar (2012): Providing eco-driving feedback to corporate car drivers: what impact does a smartphone application have on their fuel efficiency?. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 212-215.

The personal transport sector constitutes an important target of energy conservation and emission reduction programs. In this context, eco-feedback technologies that provide information on the driving behavior have shown to be an effective means to stimulate changes in driving in favor of both, reduced costs and environmental impact. This study extends the literature on eco-feedback technologies as it demonstrates that a smartphone application can improve fuel efficiency even under conditions where monetary incentives are not given, i.e. where the drivers do not pay for fuel. The field test, which took place with 50 corporate car drivers, demonstrates an improvement in the overall

Fleisch, Elgar, Oesterle, Hubert and Powell, Stephen (2004): Rapid Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems. In Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, 14 (2) pp. 107-126.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are integrated software systems for administration of all aspects of a business. A major hindrance to firms that wish to convert from existing legacy systems to ERP systems (such as SAP R/3) is that the process can take 12 to 18 months. This is an especially daunting length of time for small to midsize companies. Many ERP software vendors and consulting firms have developed methods for rapid systems integration, which, it is claimed, can cut implementation time to as little as 5 or 6 months. In this article, we explore the experience of 4 small to midsize companies who implemented SAP R/3 using Accelerated SAP (ASAP), SAP's rapid implementation process. ASAP is a reference-process-based approach to implementing R/3. As such, it does not allow for extensive customization of business processes during implementation. Nevertheless, our study showed that R/3 can be implemented quickly and effectively in small- to medium-size firms. ASAP appears to provide the ingredients for a well-structured implementation project. By reducing project scope and complexity, it reduces consulting costs and project risks. By splitting the project into small units with clear short-term goals, it increases the motivation for the project team. Finally, it can form the basis for a continuous improvement effort in which business processes are tuned to the new ERP system.

Fleisch, Elgar and Powell, Stephen G. (2001): The Value of Information Integration in Meeting Delivery Dates. In Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, 11 (1) pp. 15-30.

In this article, we consider the value of shared information within a business network. To make the problem concrete, we focus on a specific operational problem: How the final supplier to the customer determines promised delivery dates. In a traditional supply chain, the final supplier has little or no information on the delivery performance of intermediate suppliers and thus, has limited information with which to set delivery dates. On the other hand, in an information-integrated business network, the final supplier's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can interact with all the intermediate suppliers' ERP systems to determine exactly how far ahead or behind schedule the network is in meeting the needs of a specific customer. This information should improve the final supplier's ability to set realistic delivery dates. We attempt to quantify the value of this information and determine precisely why it is valuable so that management can best exploit information integration. We use a modeling approach in this research, beginning with simple analytic models and progressing to more realistic simulation models. Our analytic model establishes an important principle: Information integration not only significantly improves the average on-time delivery performance of a business network, but also dramatically improves its worst-case performance. Because customer dissatisfaction is generally associated with worst-case performance, information integration may be highly beneficial even if its effect on average on-time delivery is small. Simulation models allow us to compare the performance of more realistic business networks. These models suggest, for example, that the value of information integration is dependent on both the structure of the network itself (whether serial or arborescent) and on the typical customer order date in the production cycle. These insights allow us to begin to identify the types of business networks in which information integration will have the highest value.
