The current disaster management manual is being utilized as a book or document-based type. It causes a low applicability and interoperability in practical business because each information has a different document format and it is difficult to recycle those information as common disaster information. The information reading by text type without electronic data and visual object also has a limitations in guaranteeing a quickness of disaster management business. Accordingly, the electronic document management system with visual information is necessary and the system needs to tie framed by XML schema because the electronic document standard will be changed from DTD to XML schema. This study attempts to develop a procedural methodology of an electronic document management system based on XML for disaster management. The applicability of the proposed results is verified by the simulated scenario.
A Pilot Study on the Present State and Transformation of Construction Management Actors of USFK's EC Projects
Kim, Duk-Su ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 65~75
Emerging trends regarding USFK(United States Forces, Korea)'s EC(Engineering/Construction) market include: (1) introduction of MATOC(Multiple Award Task Order Contract); (2) increase of DB(Design-Build) contract; and (3) encroachment of large US-origin private EC firms upon Korea. This study analyzes the change of USFK's EC market with focus on the change of construction management actors for USFK's EC projects. Specifically, USFK's EC projects have been managed by FED(Far East District). Recently, however, the large US private EC companies substitute the role previously taken by FED. This phenomenon is accelerated by the business chances in Korea due to LPP(Land Partnership Plan) and intentions of US Government to save military construction costs by means of utilizing US private EC companies. The large US EC firms entering into Korea are business opportunities as well as challenges to Korean EC firms, which are contracting USFK's EC projects. This study concludes that, through teaming joint venture with the large US EC firms, the market changes can be opportunities to acquire foreign market information and learn advanced construction management skill from them.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 76~85
Quality is the core competence for customer satisfaction in current competitive business environments. The manufacturing companies regard the quality as the success factor in enhancing competitiveness and foremost concept of the management innovation. But in many cases, the basis for the quality management and the action programs are not prepared yet. In construction industry, normally schedule and cost have priority over quality and the level of overall quality is relatively lower than other industries. This is caused by the vague quality goal and result-oriented management. This study suggests the quality performance indicators for measuring performance objectively, and develops the continuous quality monitoring system based on those indicators. By using this system, the quality improvement can be expected and corporate quality competitiveness can be ensured.

Kim, Sun-Kuk ; Kim, Tae-Hui ; Yu, Jung-Ho ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 86~93
Compared with the Certification Requirements for Professional Engineer in other country, those of Korean are not satisfactory. This is due to a few facts such as no relation with accreditation of engineering education and no separation of technical field and engineering field. Eventually, this problem makes it impossible to ensure the international mobility of Korean professional engineers. This research reviews the international trends regarding the professional engineer certification requirements, compares the requirements of Korea and other countries, proposes three alternatives for improvement, and suggests two implementation plans for the alternatives.

Choi, Chang-Hoon ; Kim, Soo-Yong ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 102~111
In the analysis of function, which is the core and early phase among the procedure of construction VE Job Plan, the accuracy of function definition directly connects to VE result. However, the method of defining function, which is currently used is not accurate and comprehended or is difficult to utilize it systematically. Also, there is not a clear definition about the function for selecting VE so that many difficulties occur in the organic connection between each of functions in the summarization of function after defining function. Therefore, this study cleared the definition of function and made up any counter measured problem occurred in FAST Diagram later on and suggested CAFAT(Combined Antithetic Function Analysis Technique) in order to induce better phase in functional analysis.

Lee, Du-Heon ; Lee, Kyo-Sun ; Park, Hee-Sung ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 122~129
The Ministry of Construction and Transportation(MOCT) announced the General Policy for Effective Implementation of Public Construction Projects(the Policy) in 1999. Fifty two regulations were amended to embody the Policy between 1999 to 2001 Then MOCT performed the analysis to show the quantitative performance of the Policy. However, there has been no effort to evaluate the degree of implementation and effectiveness of the Policy so far. Therefore, this paper was initiated to perform the survey on industry's perceptions, implementation degree, effectiveness, and satisfaction of the Policy. The result shows that most policies were implemented in the construction industry but some policies were little adopted. Therefore, this paper proposes to update the Policy based on the survey results to effectively implement public sector projects.
Improvement of Human Motivation in Lean Construction Implementation
Kim, Dae-Young ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 130~137
Since Lean Construction has been introduced in 1992, much research is in progress to popularize lean concepts and principles. Most research focuses on developing lean concepts and tools and strengthening the limited domain of instrumental rationality and technical efficiency. However, the basic concepts of human resource management seem to be ignored by those who advocate lean production. Thus, the lean construction research related to human resource management must be once considered for popularization and activation of lean construction at the beginning stage in the domestic construction industry. Because human resources have a major influence on lean implementation and its success, especially at the beginning stage of lean construction. This paper considers the human resource requirements for the implementation of lean construction in the USA construction industry. The results from the study will provide the foundations to adapt lean construction into the domestic construction industry. Consequently, the study found that lean construction could improve the capability of human resource and human motivation if effectively implemented in the construction sites. Since lean construction emphasizes and focuses on improvement of relationships among project participants, constant application to human resource management is crucial for successful lean implementation.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 7, issue 3, 2006, Pages 149~158
For construction projects, it is required to estimate the Environmental Management Cost(EMC) for pollution prevention, using the calculation standards prescribed in the Construction Technology Management Law(CTML). However, the EMC standards are difficult to utilize without definite site information. Therefore, it is needed a new calculation method reflecting project site information. According to the definition of EMC in the CTML, this study identifies the EMC items and classifies them into the pollution types such as air, water, noise, waste and others. With this EMC classification, the stud:』 analyzes using the SPSS the EMC for the 78 new multi-housing projects, which were executed during the past three years, 2000-2002. And then an EMC estimating matrix is developed with simple information such as site location and size of area from historical data. The proposed matrix can be effectively used to check and control budgeting and estimating the EMC of the multi-housing projects. In addition, the proposed EMC matrix are validated through a case study.
