This study examined the role effect provided by top management and team operations in applying the inner capabilities of R&D manufacturing and marketing to the performances of new product development. In examining the relationships of the factors in the study direct and indirect effects were determined in the structural model. Implications for new product development were made in the conclusive section.
A Study on the Effectiveness of Protective Capacity in a Re-entrant Line
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 17~30
This paper addresses the effect of protective capacity on the lead time and throughput of a re-entrant line where statistical fluctuations exist in the form of variation in processing times and machine breakdowns. The specific framework employed in the paper is a five station re-entrant line structured as a closed network mode. This paper argues that protective capacity can be used in conjunction with WIP inventory in order to reduce the lead time and to increase the increase the throughput of a line. Simulation analyses are included to give insight into the effectiveness of protective capacity.
Task Characteristics and Utilization of Electronic Approval System : Media Richness Theory Perspective
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 31~40
With the rapidly changing external environment and the increasing internal process complexity more and more organizations are adopting the Electronic Approval System(EAS) for their competitiveness. This paper defines EAS as a core organizational communication medium investigates factors which influence EAS's use from a media rich-ness theory and shows sutiable EAS functions for equivocality resolution and uncertainty reduction. Results from the five EAS implementation sites show that most organizations use EAS only for tasks with low equivocality and low uncertainty. Additional functionalities such as video conferencing and database access were suggested for fu-ture EAS system to enhance their utilization for more cirtical and unstructed tasks.
A Heuristic for parallel Machine Scheduling Depending on Job Characteristics
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 41~54
in the real world situations that some jobs need be processed only on certain limited machines frequently occur due to the capacity restrictions of machines such as tools fixtures or material handling equipment. In this paper we consider n-job non-preemptive and m parallel machines scheduling problem having two machines group. The objective function is to minimize the sum of earliness and tardiness with different release times and due dates. The problem is formulated as a mixed integer programming problem. The problem is proved to be Np-complete. Thus a heuristic is developed to solve this problem. To illustrate its suitability and efficiency a proposed heuristic is compared with a genetic algorithm and tabu search for a large number of randomly generated test problems in ship engine assembly shop. Through the experimental results it is showed that the proposed algorithm yields good solutions efficiently.
An implementation of network optimaization system using GIS
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 55~64
By managing not only geographical information but also various kinds of attribute data. GIS presents useful information for decision-makings. Most of decision-making problems using GIS can be formulated into network-optimization problems. In this study we deal with the implementation of network optimization system that extracts data from the database in GIS. solves a network optimization problem and present optimal solutions through GIS' graphical user interface. We design a nitwork optimization system and present some implementation techniques by showing a prototype of the network optimization system. Our network optimization system consists of three components : the interface module for user and GIS the basic network the program module the advanced network optimization program module. To handle large-scale networks the program module including various techniques for large sparse networks is also considered, For the implementation of the network optimization system we consider two approaches : the method using script languages supported by GIS and the method using client tools of GIS. Finally some execution results displayed by the prototype version of network optimization system are given.
Developing a Meta-information System for Corporate Hyperdocuments
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 65~86
Recently many organizations have attempted to build hypermedia systems to expand their working areas to internet-based virtual work places. It is thus important to manage corporate hypermedia documents effectively. Metadata play a critical role for managing these documents. This paper identifies metadata roles and components to build its schema. Furthermore a meta-information system HyDoMiS(Hyperdocument Meta-information System) is proposed by the use of this metadata schema. HyDoMiS performs three functions; metadata management search and reporting The metadata management function is concerned with workflow document and database. The system is more likely to help implement and maintsain hypermedia information system effectively.
Population Learning with Coercive Isomorphism in the Korean Business Groups: A Comparison between the Samsung and Hyunda Group
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 87~116
The Purpose of the current study is to understand population learning with coercive isomorphism in the Korean Business Groups. Can we observe isomorphic phenomena by coercive isomorphism\ulcorner Why do these happen\ulcorner What mechanisms are embedded in the coercive isomorphism. To answer these questions this study focused on the two Korea's largest Chaeblos the Samsung and Hyundai. An empirical study to compared daily routines used in these two Chaeboles and contents analysis on the founders' characteristics were performed. Three major mechanisms were suggested as main processes to impact the formation of the coercive isomorpism in the two Korean Chaebols. Research implications were discussed at the end of study.
A Modified EGEAS Model with Avoided Cost and the Optimization of Generation Expansion Plan
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 117~134
Pubilc utility industries including the electric utility industry are facing a new stream of privatization com-petition with the private sector and deregulation. The necewssity to solve now and in the future power supply and demand problems has been increasing through the sophisticated generation expansion plan(GEP) approach con-sidering not only KEPCo's supply-side resources but also outside resources such as non-utility generation(NUG) demand-side management (DSM). Under the environmental situation in the current electric utility industry a new approach is needed to acquire multiple resources competitively. This study presents the development of a modified electric generation expansion analysis system(EGEAS) model with avoided cost based on the existing EGEAS model which is a dynamic program to develope an optimal generation expansion plan for the electric utility. We are trying to find optimal GEP in Korea's case using our modified model and observe the difference for the level of reliabilities such as the reserve margin(RM) loss of load probability(LOLP) and expected unserved energy percent(EUEP) between the existing EGEAS model and our model. In addition we are trying to calculate avoided cost for NUG resources which is a criterion to evaluate herem and test possibility of connection calculation of avoided cost with GEP implementation using our modified model. The results of our case study are as follows. First we were able to find that the generation expansion plan and reliability measures were largely influenced by capacity size and loading status of NUG resources, Second we were able to find that avoided cost which are criteria to evaluate NUG resources could be calculated by using our modified EGEAS model with avoided cost. We also note that avoided costs were calculated by our model in connection with generation expansion plans.
A Hybrid Genetic Algorithm for Scheduling of the Panel Block Assembly Shop in Shipbuilding
Korean Management Science Review, volume 17, issue 1, 2000, Pages 135~144
This paper describes a scheduling problem of the panel block assembly shop in a shipbuilding industry. Because the shipbuilding is a labor intensive industry the most important consideration in a panel block assembly shop is the workload balancing. which balances man-hour weight and welding length and so on. It should be determined assembly schedule and workstation considering a daily load balancing and a workstation load balancing simultaneously. To solve the problem we develop a hybrid genetic algorithm. Hybrid genetic algorithm proposed in this paper consists of two phases. The first phase uses the heuristic method to find a initial feasible solution which provides a useful information about optimal solution. The second phase proposes the genetic algorithm to derive the optimal solution with the initial population consisting of feasible solutions based on the initial solution. Finally we carried out computational experiments for this load balancing problem which indicate that developed method is effective for finding good solutions.

The medical records of diagnostic and testing information include sensitive personal information that reveals some of the most intimate aspects of an individual's life. The hospital information system (HIS) operates in a state of high risk which may lead to the possible loss to the IS resources caused by various threats. This research addresses twofold : (1) to perform asset identification ad valuation and (2) to recommend countermeasures for secure HIS network using case studies This paper applied a risk management tool CRAMM (Central Computer and Tele-communications Agency's Risk Analysis and Management Method) to assess asset values and suggest countermeasures for the security of computerized medical information of two large hospitals in Korea. CRAMM countermeasures are recommended at the reference sites from the network security requirements of system utilized for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The results of the study will enhance the awareness of IS risk management by IS managers.
