19. Jalili, Monire, Tolga Aydinliyim, Nagesh Murthy. “Making the Monopolist’s Product Line Green: The

Effects of Consumers’ Opposing Perceptions of Recycled Content, Material Cost Savings, and the

Diseconomies of Scope in Production.”

We consider a monopolist selling two product variants (ordinary and green) in a setting where consumers are

heterogeneous in their willingness-to-pay, perception of recycled content, and likelihood to recycle. Specifically, in our

model, some consumers’ willingness-to-pay for a product variant with recycled content is higher (relative to their

willingness-to-pay for an ordinary product), and are more likely to recycle, whereas others associate disutility with a

green product variant. The differential (dis)utility associated with the product variants is a function of the firm’s quality

decision, i.e., the amount of recycled content. Taking into account the recycled material return rate, and the firm’s

technology and costs with (dis)economies of scale effects, we solve the firm’s optimal quality and pricing decisions, and

discuss how such decisions drive demand and profit.

20. Aydinliyim, Tolga, Xiangtong Qi 11 . “Strategic Use of Carbon Reduction Labels as a Marketing Strategy.”

Environmental considerations have a significant impact on the operational decisions (e.g., sourcing, engineering design,

pricing, product line design) managers have to make to maintain their firms’ competitiveness. Consequently, even the

most (traditionally) profit driven managers face new challenges in their pursuit of matching the supply of their firms’

products with what consumers demand. On the demand side, it is essential for a firm to get a better understanding of

consumers’ preferences for eco-friendly product alternatives while making product line and pricing. Especially when

consumers’ perception of environment-related quality attributes is significant, firms can devise marketing strategies

that use such eco-attributes as a signaling device to induce a demand shift from competing products. In this project, we

study the competitive implications of providing detailed CO 2 reduction labels on products—a policy implemented by

some producers such as Tesco, Dyson, and Kingsmill. Specifically, we investigate if such labels can be used to signal the

eco-friendliness level of the competitors’ products to invoke demand.

21. Aydinliyim, Tolga, Eren Cil 12 , Nagesh Murthy. “Incentivizing Input Reduction in Product Design vs.

Recycling for Supply Chain Coordination.”

We consider a problem wherein a buyer of structural components made of specialty materials (for example, titanium

and its alloys) is faced with the problem of excessive material removal because the forgings provided by the supplier

can be 10-20 times the size of the final weight of the part. These structural parts tend to have a very large surface area

per unit weight of the part that is further complicated by angular surfaces. Forgings are considered to be the best

option for the forged blanks because of the strength related engineering specifications for the components. The

supplier typically does not have an incentive to invest in forging capabilities that can offer more near net shape forgings

for these parts. The process technology in the forging industry that is predominantly developed for forging steel alloys

is typically not geared for offering near net shaped parts for titanium parts. Further, a large size and a more fin or webshaped

geometry of the component coupled with need to forge specialty material (titanium) in a relatively low volume

environment leads to only a handful of forging suppliers who can offer this capability. This creates an interesting

problem for the buyer to consider how to incentivize the supplier in the presence of limited competition to offer a

forging that is closer to the final geometry, in a manner that can make both parties better off.

22. Aydinliyim, Tolga. “Disclosing Low Stock Levels and Offering Generous Refunds: Compliments or

Substitutes.”

Earlier research has concluded that the Internet retailer can mitigate strategic purchase deferrals by disclosing low

stock levels accurately. I investigate how optimal inventory disclosure results change for retailers that implement

flexible return policies and offer sizable refunds.
