Abstract: The new product development (NPD) is crucial to firms’ survival and success. Tough decisions must be madebetween the binary NPD strategy (i.e. incremental NPD strategy and radical NPD strategy) to ensure that scarceresources are allocated efficiently. The inappropriate NPD strategy that does not meet the internal and externalconditions may lead to resources waste and performance decline. The binary NPD strategy forecasting is helpfulto guide the firms when to improve existing products and when to develop ‘really new’ products. Therefore, theprimary purposes of this study are to construct an evaluating indicator system and to find the appropriatemethod for the binary NPD strategy forecasting. Here we obtain 1088 valid sample datasets from Chinese automotiveindustry, covering the period 2001–2014. The empirical results indicate that RS-MultiBoosting as akind of hybrid ensemble machine learning (HEML) method demonstrate an outstanding forecasting performancein dealing with the small datasets by comparison with the other four ensemble machine learning (EML) methodsand three individual machine learning (IML) methods. The findings can help firms to make the right businessdecision between incremental and radical NPD strategies so that they can avoid resources waste and improve theoverall NPD performance.

Abstract: In recent years, financial institutions (FIs) have tentatively utilized supply chain finance (SCF) as a means of solving the financing issues of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Thus, forecasting SMEs' credit risk in SCF has become one of the most critical issues in financing decision-making. Nevertheless, traditional credit risk forecasting models cannot meet the needs of such forecasting. Many researchers argue that machine learning (ML) approaches are good tools. Here we propose an enhanced hybrid ensemble ML approach called RSMultiBoosting by incorporating two classic ensemble ML approaches, random subspace (RS) and MultiBoosting, to improve the accuracy of forecasting SMEs' credit risk. The experimental samples, originating from data on forty-six quoted SMEs and seven quoted core enterprises (CEs) in the Chinese securities market between 31 March 2014 and 31 December 2015, are collected to test the feasibility and effectiveness of the RS-MultiBoosting approach. The forecasting result shows that RS-MultiBoosting has good performance in dealing with a small sample size. From the SCF perspective, the results suggest that to enhance SMEs' financing ability, ‘traditional’ factors, such as the current and quick ratio of SMEs, remain critical. Other SCF specific factors, for instance, the features of trade goods and the CE's profit margin, play a significant role.

Abstract: Supply chain finance (SCF) becomes more important for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) due to global credit crunch, supply chain financing woes and tightening credit criteria for corporate lending. Currently, predicting SME credit risk is significant for guaranteeing SCF in smooth operation. In this paper, we apply six methods, i.e., one individual machine learning (IML, i.e., decision tree) method, three ensemble machine learning methods [EML, i.e., bagging, boosting, and random subspace (RS)], and two integrated ensemble machine learning methods (IEML, i.e., RS–boosting and multiboosting), to predict SMEs credit risk in SCF and compare the effectiveness and feasibility of six methods. In the experiment, we choose the quarterly financial and non-financial data of 48 listed SMEs from Small and Medium Enterprise Board of Shenzhen Stock Exchange, six listed core enterprises (CEs) from Shanghai Stock Exchange and three listed CEs from Shenzhen Stock Exchange during the period of 2012–2013 as the empirical samples. Experimental results reveal that the IEML methods acquire better performance than IML and EML method. In particular, RS–boosting is the best method to predict SMEs credit risk among six methods.

Abstract: We propose a new integrated ensemble machine learning (ML) method, i.e., RS-RAB (Random Subspace-Real AdaBoost), for predicting the credit risk of China’s small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) in supply chain finance (SCF). The sample of empirical analysis is comprised of two data sets on a quarterly basis during the period of 2012–2013: one includes 48 listed SMEs obtained from the SME Board of Shenzhen Stock Exchange; the other one consists of three listed core enterprises (CEs) and six listed CEs that are respectively collected from the Main Board of Shenzhen Stock Exchange and Shanghai Stock Exchange. The experimental results show that RS-RAB possesses an outstanding prediction performance and is very suitable for forecasting the credit risk of China’s SME in SCF by comparison with the other three ML methods.

Abstract: Based on logistic regression (LR) and artificial neural network (ANN) methods, we construct an LR model, an ANN model and three types of a two-stage hybrid model. The two-stage hybrid model is integrated by the LR and ANN approaches. We predict the credit risk of China’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for financial institutions (FIs) in the supply chain financing (SCF) by applying the above models. In the empirical analysis, the quarterly financial and non-financial data of 77 listed SMEs and 11 listed core enterprises (CEs) in the period of 2012–2013 are chosen as the samples. The empirical results show that: (i) the “negative signal” prediction accuracy ratio of the ANN model is better than that of LR model; (ii) the two-stage hybrid model type I has a better performance of predicting “positive signals” than that of the ANN model; (iii) the two-stage hybrid model type II has a stronger ability both in aspects of predicting “positive signals” and “negative signals” than that of the two-stage hybrid model type I; and(iv) “negative signal” predictive power of the two-stage hybrid model type III is stronger than that of the two-stage hybrid model type II. In summary, the two-stage hybrid model III has the best classification capability to forecast SMEs credit risk in SCF, which can be a useful prediction tool for China’s FIs.
