Optimal Procurement Auctions under Multistage Supplier Qualification We consider a firm that solicits bids from a fixed-sized pool of yet-to-be qualified suppliers for an indivisible contract. The contract can only be awarded to a supplier who passes a multistage qualification process. For ...
Role Refinement in Access Control: Model and Analysis Access control mechanisms in software systems administer user privileges by granting users permission to perform certain operations while denying unauthorized access to others. Such mechanisms are essential to ensure that ...
Fixed-Dimensional Stochastic Dynamic Programs: An Approximation Scheme and an Inventory Application We study fixed-dimensional stochastic dynamic programs in a discrete setting over a finite horizon. Under the primary assumption that the cost-to-go functions are discrete L♮-convex, we propose a pseudo-polynomial time ...
Optimal Software Reuse in Incremental Software Development: A Transfer Pricing Approach This study develops optimal transfer pricing schemes that manage software reuse in incremental software development, namely, a development regime wherein users begin utilizing parts of the system that are released to them ...
