Abstract

This is an R&D project on design optimization of the inner shield of the Omega colour picture tube at Samsung SDI in Korea. This was an R&D project which basically used the IDOV (Identify, Design, Optimize, Validate) process for Six Sigma implementation. Most Six Sigma projects use the process of DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control). However, this project introduces a new cycle, RDIDOV (Recognize, Define, and IDOV∥. Here CPT means Colour Picture Tube. Samsung SDI is one of the two companies which began Six Sigma in Korea. This case study shows a good exmaple how an R&D Six Sigma project can be usefully employed in manufacturing companies using a new process cycle.

Abstract

In order to achieve sustainable growth in the era of global competitiveness, a speedy and flexible strategy is needed in the fast changing management environment. For this purpose, strengthening the core confidence in the organization along with acquiring competitive advantages that cannot be easily copied by competitors should be done based on dealing with needs from customers and markets positively. In this study, the creative value innovation strategy and creative value design methodology will be presented to improve company competitiveness.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the management process considering risks and performances in developing new products.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper provides risk factors and performance factors based on literature reviews and then discusses risk and performance management processes during the product development period. Some lessons for effective risk management and performance measures are reported.

Findings

The timing of risk management and performance measures is important to the impact level of performance.

Practical implications

This proposed framework could be used as a basis for systematic management of R&D investment projects.

Originality/value

The paper provides insights into the R&D committee's role in developing new products.

Abstract

Six Sigma uses DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) methodology as the process of a solving problem. Enterprises already propelling Six Sigma successfully, such as Motorola, GE and consulting companies, also traditionally propose DMAIC methodology. But, from activating Six Sigma, enterprises and Six Sigma‐consulting companies propose Six Sigma methodology matching indirection part of office and R&D part. As an exmaple, DFSS (Design For Six Sigma) is part of R&D application in GE. This study investigates Six Sigma methodology corresponding to the Right Process of the kernel factor. Especially for the optimum design of R&D, the study revises the definition of DFSS and the general organization through Lean DFSS methodology research and analysis.

Abstract

Many 6‐sigma innovation companies are obtaining ISO9000 series or ISO/TS16949 certifications. However, not many of them have considered the integrated management of ISO/ TS16949 at the time of 6‐sigma introduction. ISO/TS16949 focuses on the process of an overall company. In particular, APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) requires that from the beginning all the planning should have a clear quality planning business process. Each company can decide the best course of action to suit its individual needs. Lean DFSS in 6‐sigma offers the concrete development steps of the product development process. And if analyses of Input, Output, Target, Process, KSF, KPI, and FMEA is done in each process and clearly defined in APQP, mutual organic and effective systems can be initially achieved.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to provide a scale development process, in order to preliminarily address the reliability and validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance constructs. Data for this study were collected from 264 manufacturing firms in Thailand. The measurement scales were pre-assessed using the Q-sort method, and exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was also conducted to assess the construct reliability and validity. This research established a theoretical framework of CEO transformational leadership, organizational factors including innovation strategy, organizational learning, innovation culture, new product development process, and product innovation performance. Q-sort technique and EFA can help improve the content validity and the construct validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance. This study provided the initial developmental steps toward the building of a theoretical framework and scale measurement to allow better understanding of the constructs based on the context of firms in Thailand. This will allow researchers to bring new insights when exploring these constructs under differing operational conditions. The findings address additional steps required towards improved methodological aspects in terms of how to pre-validate and develop a measurement scale in various constructs within alternative domains.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the direct and indirect effects of CEO transformational leadership on product innovation performance. This research investigates the mechanism between CEO transformational leadership and product innovation performance, to understand the process through which transformational CEOs exert their influence.

Design/methodology/approach

This study is a quantitative research. Data were collected from 269 manufacturing firms in Thailand through a mail survey. This research applied a two-step structural equation modeling process.

Findings

The results indicate that CEO transformational leadership indirectly affects product innovation performance through an innovation culture, organizational learning, and the new product development (NPD) process. CEO transformational leadership has a strong effect on innovation culture and organizational learning. Organizational learning is strongly associated with the NPD process, which significantly leads to product innovation performance. By integrating the knowledge of leadership and operations management fields, this study helps extend the understanding of how leaders at the top of an organization influence the NPD process and product innovation outcomes.

Practical implications

For practical implications to be more effective, CEOs focusing on product innovation should develop their skills and behaviors of transformational leadership to foster innovation culture and organizational learning, which in turn will affect product innovation performance.

Originality/value

This study makes a contribution to the literature by filling the research gaps proposed by several prior studies and offering a theoretical framework of the relationship between CEO transformational leadership and product innovation performance.
