CALS Implementation Policy for Information-based Management of Small and Medium Companies
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 1~20
This study aims to suggest CALS implementation strategies and policies for information-based management of small and medium companies in Korea. At the turning point from traditional document-based management to recent digital-based one, it is well known that implementation of CALS concept is crucial for advancing business management of small and medium enterprises In order to attack the aim, this paper critically analyzes the empirical difficulties and obstacles of the current information-based management of small and medium companies in Korea. On the basis of the above analysis, this paper suggests the strategic plans and policies of CALS implementation for small and medium enterprises in Korea as follows. First, government should provide the supporting policies and proper system so that the large enterprise can be linked with small and medium companies for sharing necessary information. Second, similar enterprises should be integrated on the basis of information and automation evaluation. Third, implementation strategies and plans should be advanced on the basis of the informationalized phases with respect to the technology level of small and medium enterprises. For more efficient CALS implementation, this paper also proposes the following subsidiary policies. First, it is substantially important to publicize the nation-wide spreading of CALS mind. Second, it is strongly recommended to educate and train CALS specialist on a consistant basis. Third, government should support the enterprises by providing sufficient fund for CALS implementation. Fourth, the ideal CALS implementation models for small and medium enterprises should be developed. Fifth, the consulting and training program for CALS implementation should be established through ECRC (Electronic Commerce Resource Center). My study was based upon the enterprises' responses to the questionaires I made
A Process Management Framework for Design and Manufacturing Activities in a Distributed Environment
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 21~37
As the complexity in design and manufacturing activities of distributed virtual enterprises rapidly increases, the issue of process management becomes more critical to shorten the time-to-market, reduce the manufacturing cost and improve the product quality. This paper proposes a unified framework to manage design and manufacturing processes in a distributed environment. We present a methodology which utilizes process flow graphs to depict the hierarchical structure of workflows and process grammars to represent various design processes and design tools. To implement the proposed concept, we develop a process management system which mainly consists of a cockpit and manager programs, and we finally address a preliminary implementation procedure based on the Object Modeling Technique. Since the proposed framework can be a formal approach to the process management by providing formalism, parallelism, reusability, and flexibility, it can be effectively applied to further application domains of distributed virtual enterprises.
IDEFO Models for Construction CALS Implements
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 39~52
This paper presents the results of analysis for the flexible computer integrated Construction(FCIC) system to adapt CALS on the construction industry. Acquisition and supply processes of the system are represented by IDEFO function models and FCIC information systems are briefly described in this paper. The model presented here used as a reference for the development of CALS system.
The Methodology for Information System Development by the Concept of Extended Components
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 53~77
This paper presents an efficient methodology for information system development by adopting the concept of extended components which can achieve the improvement of development productivity, reductrion of development time periods, quality improvement of information systems, etc. when information development projects are carried out. First of all, for efficient development of information systems, development steps of current methodologies for information system analysis are subdivided into components in detail and outputs required at each step are defined. The components are extended by types and various application methods are proposed in each step of information system development. In addition, a method which uses advantages of current methods such as SDLC, prototyping, and RAD, is also proposed. In this research, a CASE tool named S-Designer is used for the development of extended components and their interface, and a system development method called DSDM for the deviation of detailed steps and corresponding outputs.
A Study on Electronic Commerce Transaction Modeling based on SET
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 79~94
Commerce activities which are free form space and time constraint using a communication network are called Electronic Commerce(EC). Because of sending a commercial information using open network such as Internet in EC, they need the security of commerce information (payment information and purchase information), checking the integrity of transferring data and certifying all parts participated in commerce for a secure commerce. Recently Visa and MasterCard Co. released the Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) Protocol for secure payment card transaction on Internet. This paper proposes a Secure Electronic Commerce Transaction Model(SECTM) using SET in order to support the secure commerce on Internet. The proposed transaction model prevents merchant from abusing the cardholder's payment information (credit-card number etc.) and enables cardholder to shop securely in Electronic Shopping Mall.
A Study on Interactive Electronic Technical Manual(IETM) Implementation Approach in CALS Environment
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 95~115
Over the past several years, numerous CALS technologies have been developed for improving productivity and the quality of products and services in an organization. Among these technologies, Interactive Electronic Technical Manual(IETM) has been recognized as one of the most important CALS technologies. IETM is a technical manual authored by means of an appropriate media in a digital format. This study was an attempt to establish conceptual foundations in the literature for IETM. This study described the concept of IETM and differentiated IETM from a technical manual. Also, the author suggested an effective approach to developing an ITEM and explained the relationship between HyTime/MID and IETM.
A Study on the Development of CITIS System Prototype - Using a Web Development Tool -
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 117~129
As the lifecycle of a product becomes shorter, the communication between a contractor and a supplier in product information has got more importance. The CITIS(Contractor Integrated Technical Information Service) is required to provide authorized users with access to both data and applications they need to complete a task for contract. With the growth of WWW, there has been much study for the use of WWW for the implementation of CALS. The WWW has been proved as an efficient tool for CALS implementation due to its of publicity, openness, and free accessibility. In this study, we suggest using WWW tools, here, an intranet tool, as a basis for the implementation of CITIS
The Trends of Domestic SI Industry and Promotion Strategies for the CALS Model Projects
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 1, 1997, Pages 131~151
The CALS/EC is the world-wide accepted concept and its application domain is being expanded continuously throughout the private and public sectors. One of the essential points for realization of CALS/EC is to promote the domestic system integration(SI) industry. This paper describes the present status of the domestic SI companies and the clues to solve their facing problems. In order to evaluate the status of the current SI technology, the MBNQA(Malcom Baldridge National Quality Award) is adopted. The surveyed results show that the average levels of 14 SI companies over 7 evaluation criteria turn out to be 30% through 40% point. The major projects' activities of the SI companies on the information systems over the areas of trade, science and technology, industrial manpower, health and welfare, national security, etc are explained. Also, the competitive power of the SI companies is also discussed. As a target sample, the Korea Telecom(KT) CALS model project is described in terms of its Progresses and Problems. Furthermore, the strategic plans and detailed research items are proposed to resolve on-going issues.
