The purpose of this paper is to explore the ideological foundation of open innovation strategies and the open business model, which are appearing as new industrial paradigms based on information technology (IT).
First, this paper examined the ideological foundation of Deleuze, Whitehead, and Popper. Next, Taoism was scrutinized to discover concrete bases for open innovation.
Here, it was found that Taoism completely coincides with the logical basis of open innovation. The theory “the supreme good is like water” of Taoism means to vacate oneself and fill the space with others to create paradoxes, thereby filling oneself with a more creative method.
Taoism provides a way to present paradoxes through the idea of vacating and opening to reach a creative stage of leaving nature as it is.

It is important for an IT service company (IS company) to fully take into account the differences in customer satisfaction across different customer groups. In this article, we consider three layers of customers in the client company. There are project directors who interface with and accept the final product (i.e. IT system) from the IS company, users who actually use the IT system for their daily operations, and finally operators who do maintenance works for the IT system. We propose that each customer group (i.e. project director, user, or operator) evaluates the IT systems success with a different set of criteria. Transaction relationship and partnership turn out to be important determinants for the project directors: task‐related and IS‐related output performances seem to be less influential. The reverse conclusion can be made for users and operators. One additional insight is that IS company’s efforts to understand its customer’s tasks and share risks with the customer company might have unexpected effects. Although the project directors seem to like such close involvement, it can be detrimental to the users’ satisfaction with the IS outsourcing projects.
Aims to discuss iron loss analysis and experimenting with linear oscillating actuator for linear compressor.
The iron loss analysis of the linear oscillating actuator is performed by using ANSYS and iron loss curves, which is obtained by an Epstein test apparatus.
The way to calculate the iron loss of the linear oscillating actuator for the linear compressor and the method to experiment the iron loss of that can be studied.
Iron loss analysis of the linear compressor considering the motor part and the structure part is needed.
Each iron loss analysis method examined here can be used to analyze the iron loss of the linear motor.

Strong and productive partnerships between buyers and suppliers are important for effective outsourcing. Such partnerships should be based on mutual understanding, which can be hampered by a perception gap between the supply chain partners with respect to what are the critical factors for a successful buyer‐supplier relationship. The nature of such a perception gap is explored by looking into the partnership between a Korean semiconductor manufacturer and its suppliers. Results indicate that there exist statistically significant differences in some of the perceptions both between the manufacturer and its suppliers and among the suppliers according to their production capability and product requirement.
