Optimal cost design of replicated data in distributed database systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

3 Scopus citations


The field of production and operations management nowadays includes various concepts, theories and approaches. The theoretical background of these concepts and theories however, can be found in many different disciplines and it is therefore not surprising that still no clear body of knowledge exists with respect to the area of productioncontrol. Remarkable enough, within the field of productionand operations management few comparative studies about the various theoretical perspectives exist. It is for this reason why in this article we make a comparative assessmentof sociotechnical theory within the area of production andoperations management. An overview is given of the seemingand apparent affinities between the modern sociotechnical approach and the traditional operations management focus. From this, the question is answered in what way sociotechnical theory can contribute to a more integrated view on operations management.
