Intelligent Electronic Shoppingmall with Bundle Product Suggestions for Fisheries
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 5~32
The main goal of this research is at the development of a bundle product suggestion sub-system of an internet shopping mall for fishery products, which can reduce the search cost of user. To achieve the goal, we first study tie key factors of successful direct commerce for fishery products, and second, we design a bundle product suggestion module and its sub-module. For this, we identify the objectives of system, and write out the necessary functions of the system and models(process model, data model, dynamic model) through the analysis of user requirements. Based on the functions and models, we design user interfaces, database, processes, and knowledge base. In designing knowledge base and inferencing strategy, we consider two intelligent agent approach(optimal algorithms, heuristic rules) and suggest one more approach(case-based reasoning). The intelligent agent can be used in enhancing the suggestion of multiple fishery product simultaneously. The system analysis and design documents presented as the research results can be used to provide good guidelines to the companies who consider developing an production suggestion agents.
The Strategy for Developing Internet Business Models
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 33~64
With the development of the Internet, electronic commerce, electronic markets, and digital economy, new business paradigm and new ways of business have been emerging and developing. The development of right and robust business models for electronic markets is a key for Internet business success. This parer reviews previous studies and successful cases for business models based on the Internet. This paper presents strategic factors such as the business value and the source of revenue, products and services, business processes and technologies, and the characteristics of electronic markets and relationship with customers and partners as a framework for developing sustainable and robust business models. This paper presents seven propositions for developing successful Internet business models as guidelines for practitioners and theorists.
A Study on the Effect of CIO′s Characteristics on CIO′s Role
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 65~88
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between CIO's characteristics and CIO's role. The CIO's characteristics include CEO/CIO relationship, CIO's power in his/her organization, hire type of CIO, and career background of CIO. The results of this study are as follows: part of the CIO's characteristics has a positive relationship with the CIO's role. In other words, the CIO's role is influenced by the CEO/CIO relationship, the CIO's power, and the hire type of CIO. However, the relationship between the career background of the CIO and the CIO's role is not statistically significant.
A Comparative Study of Business Innovation Project : Korean Companies vs. US Companies
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 89~101
The purpose of this research is empirically investigating organizational/managerial factors affecting BPR implementation between Korean and US companies. And we compared the critical success factors and business innovation performance of Korean companies to those of US companies based on the prior research. Seven variables that represent success of BPR implementation are identified. They are : (1) reduction of process time (2) reduction of process cost (3) upgraded skill or knowledge (4) improved quality of process output (5) improved quality of work life (6) responsiveness to customer need (7) overall perception of BPR success. The result showed that the performance of US companies is better than that of Korean companies. Especially level of overall perception of BPR success of US companies is more high than that of Korean companies. The reason is that business innovation of Korean companies is focused on functional unit and incremental improvement.
A Comparison Study for Optimal Implementation of the EDI Systems of Port Logistics
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 103~128
At present, the EDI systems are indispensable software in port logistics industry. Currently, a monopolistic VAN/EDI service provider operates the EDI services. The current EDI client software has the 2-tier fat client/server architecture. However, the current EDI software is lack of Web interface and causes lots of cost for maintenance. Therefore, a variety of implementation architecture has been being tried by using script, XML and distributed object-oriented technology. Web/EDI and XML/EDI are the new EDI systems, However, the EDI systems have some limitations such as speed. This study intends to compare the variety implementation architecture for the EDI systems in the users' perspective and explore the strong and weak points of each architecture. We compared the EDI systems based on our experience of more than 2-years of implementation project for the EDI systems of port logistics. We categorized the EDI systems as client application EDI, Web EDI using script, XML/EDI, and 3-tier distributed object-oriented EDI system. We compared them with criteria such as speed, program maintenance, easiness of implementation and usage, security, and load balancing and fail-over. Finally we discuss the direction of optimal EDI system architecture for the future.
The Impact of Information Lead Time Improvement on the Distributed Supply Chain System
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 129~150
In this study, we model a decentralized supply chain system which is managed by four types of centers, sequentially located: Retailer, Wholesaler, Distributor, and Factory Each center contributes to enhancing the performance of the supply chain system individually with its own local inventory information. Through experiments which are performed with a programmed simulation (like the MIT beer game), we investigate how the information lead time improvement in each center affects the whole system. And we show that the impact of the lead time improvement in the downstream, like retailers, affects more to the system than the one in the upstream, like factories, in a cost-effective way. Moreover, by using information lead time for each center, we analyze how much the extent of the improvement affects the whole system, especially for the total cost and the order level.

An Empirical Study of the Impact of Knowledge Management Capabilities on Organizational Performance
The Journal of Information Systems, volume 10, issue 2, 2001, Pages 165~192
Knowledge Management (KM) is the systematic, explicit, and deliberate building, renewal, and application of knowledge to maximize an enterprise's knowledge-related effectiveness and performance from its knowledge assets. KM applies systematic approaches to find, understand, and use knowledge to create new capabilities, solve problems, enable superior performance, and encourage innovation. The purpose of this research is to identify the relationship of KM capabilities (KM infrastructures and KM processes) and organizational effectiveness and performance. An empirical research of the relationship of knowledge management capabilities and organizational effectiveness and performance is conducted from the information systems and knowledge management literature in order to access the following questions: (1) Does the knowledge management infrastructure contribute to the organizational effectiveness and peformance? (2) Does the knowledge management process contribute to the organizational effectiveness and peformance? The research design employs a mail survey questionnaire for gathering data from 500 firms in a number of industries. From a mail survey of 61 top managers of knowledge management, the results of empirical analyses provide the following major findings: (1) While the external effectiveness of organization is influenced by the cultural infrastructure of knowledge management, the overall performance of organization is influenced by the structural infrastructure of knowledge management. (2) While the external effectiveness of organization is influenced by the application and protection processes of knowledge management, the overall performance of organization is influenced by the knowledge acquisition process of knowledge management.
