Developing a User-Perceived Value Framework for Ubiquitous Computing
Lee, Jung-Woo ; Lee, Bong-Gyou ; Park, Jae-Sung ;
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 11, issue 3, 2006, Pages 1~12
In this study, a value framework for ubiquitous computing is developed and presented. Using 'value focused thinking' approach suggested by Keeney, twenty-two potential users of ubiquitous computing were interviewed and 435 statements were obtained from these interviews. Subsequent purification and redundancy removal process reduces these 435 statements into 166 objectives users have in their mind when thinking about ubiquitous computing. These 166 objectives were again simplified into 37 objectives by clustering. Through a focus group interview, these objectives were again classified into a means-ends network diagram by analyzing reciprocal relationships among them. Resulting means-ends network reveals the value framework inherent within the perception of users. This framework will be useful as a reference in developing new business models in ubiquitous computing as well as developing technologies themselves.

Mobile technology-supported services have become one of the inevitable parts of present people's lives and mobile business have been spreading remarkably fast. This study is to find out key parts for popularizing mobile banking services by clarifying mobile banking acceptance factors and to get some practical tips for service providers and users. The results show that innovation and functional risk are found to have a significant effect on the use intention. And social influence and institution-based trust factors are found to have a strong positive effect on use intention.

Information visualization plays an important role to provide a conceptual comprehension of the information and should be adjusted and featured to reflect the characteristics of the domain to which it is applied. Product searching in e-Commerce is not an exception. In this paper, we present visualization techniques that are specified for effectively browsing the results of product searching. We considered visualization techniques including MapNet and Cluster Map and modified them to reflect the characteristics of the product domain. We consider two types of search queries: category searching and product property searching, and make it possible to include more detailed product semantics in their search criteria. We also provide a query refinement mechanism so that even users with rack of understanding the products may rewrite their queries for better results.
Product Data Interoperability based on Layered Reference Ontology

In order to cope with the rapidly changing product development environment, individual manufacturing enterprises are forced to collaborate with each other through establishing a virtual organization. In collaboration, designated organizations work together for mutual gain based on product data interoperability. However, product data interoperability is not fully facilitated due to semantic inconsistency among product data models of individual enterprises. In order to overcome the semantic inconsistency problem, this paper proposes a reference ontology, Reference Domain Ontology(RDO), and a methodology for product data interoperability with semantic consistency using RDO. RDO describes semantics of product data model and metamodel for all application domains in a virtual organization. Using RDO, application domains in a virtual organization can easily understand the product data models of others. RDO is agile and temporal such that it is created with the formation of a virtual organization, copes with changes of the organization, and disappears with the vanishment of the organization. RDO is built by a hybrid approach of top-down using a upper ontology and bottom-up based on the merging of ontologies of application domains in a virtual organization. With this methodology, every domain in a virtual organization can achieve product data model interoperability without model transformation.
A Methodology for exchanging Business Process Model using XMI
Lim, Tae-Soo ;
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 11, issue 3, 2006, Pages 73~88
As a computerized application for controlling enterprise processes, BPM(Business Process Management) has been received such concerns that many solution vendors developed their own process definition and storage methods. The fact causes the needs of process modeling standards for process model exchange and at the same time, requires the appropriate methodology for adopting the global standards. In this paper, we propose a transformation methodology of BPMN-based file into XMI(XML Metadata Interchange)-based neutral file format. We devised translation templates for 21 workflow patterns, and compared the results with BPEL4WS(Business Process Execution Language for Web Services) translation. As a result, our XMI transformation model enables more complete translation of process model in comparison with existing model, and thus can be practically utilized to the BPM vendors adopting BPMN standards.
A Classification of Human Resources and Survey on the Status of Training Programs Related to Ubiquitous Technology and Service
Hong, Jung-Wan ; Seo, Jeong-Yeoul ; Leem, Choon-Seong ;
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 11, issue 3, 2006, Pages 89~108
This study is to survey on the status of human resource training programs related to ubiquitous technologies and services of domestic universities. So, this study develop a classification system about human resource related to ubiquitous technologies and services. We propose the implications and plans which are based on the status of human resource training programs related to ubiquitous technologies and services. Human resources related to ubiquitous technology are classified by the flow of information in ubiquitous environment. And human resources related to ubiquitous service are classified by ubiquitous user view. This study can be used to find collaboration alternatives for breeding up ubiquitous human resources and referred to analyzing on the supply and demand of ubiquotous human resources.
