A Dynamic Evolutionary Game Model of Modular Production Network

Wei He
2016 Discrete Dynamics in Nature and Society  
As a new organization mode of production in the 21st century, modular production network is deemed extensively to be a source of competitiveness for lead firms in manufacturing industries.  ...  To encourage the cooperation of production integrator and modular supplier, some suggestions are also provided.  ...  Because the production integrator usually works as lead organization in the modular production network, it takes bigger pieces of the extra payoffs.  ...
