First, a simple main effect of relationship magnitude on knowledge sharing is hypothesized to provide the foundation for the subsequent TPCM hypotheses.
In either example, the supplier's TPCM may be perceived as a threat to a collaborative relationship by a buyer.
If a supplier's TPCM is perceived as a violation of the expectation of shared responsibility in a relationship, a buyer may retaliate and pull back from the relationship.
H2: TPCM exhibited by supplier personnel will negatively influence the following knowledge sharing behaviors by a boundary spanner in a buying firm:
It is also important to compare the differential effects of each TPCM on knowledge sharing behaviors.
For a 4KB cache, TPCM improves the miss rate by 6% to 29% over PH, with a geometric mean of 13%.
The improvement of TPCM over PH is greater for larger caches, because there are more opportunities for avoiding mapping conflicts.
A code-placement algorithm that is less effective than TPCM tends to leave more mapping conflicts.
In all cases, the difference between the PH and TPCM placements is less pronounced for the two-way associative cache than for the direct-mapped cache.
