Configuration Management Processes and Its Information Systems Development Environments
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 1~30
In this research, the concept of CM (configuration management) is introduced for proper applications to the life-cycle product data management. In addition, the activities for CM - CM management and planning, configuration identification, configuration control, configuration status accounting, and configuration verification and audit - are described in detail. For the management of distributed configuration data among governments, prime contractors, and subcontractors, development environments and functions for the configuration management information system (CMIS) are proposed.
An Analysis of Technology Architecture and Application Factors for Electronic Commerce Implementation
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 31~54
While Electronic Commerce is believed to provide new opportunities and environments toward the information society, not many companies have achieved successful construction of Electronic Commerce systems regarding their own technology factors and business process types. This work provides a brief review of Electronic Commerce information infrastructure based on the technology architecture developed. Three major technologies-telecommunication, information processing, and process enhancement - support the architecture, and each major technology consists of its technical enablers. Also, the application factors of Electronic Commerce are defined and analyzed in term of inter-enterprise, intra-enterprise, and enterprise-consumer interactivity. Finally, the implementation strategy is drawn with respect to the technology architecture and three application types.
A DAI Coordination Model for Cooperation in Multiagent Systems
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 55~74
In this paper, the concept of coordination under the setting of cooperative multiagent systems is examined. Based on the concept, a computational model in which the key constructs of coordination can be precisely defined is developed. This model can serve as a basis for developing software systems designed to support coordination in Eletronic Commerce. Coordination is viewed as management of conflicting demands on finite resources by actors or acitivities. The model views coordination as a cycle of four phases: the definition phase, the conflict resolution phase, the action phase, and the adaptation phase. Then, a formal model of coordination, both as a phenomenon and as a process is devloped. Within the context of this model, important concepts such as decomposability, informational privacy, informational decentralization, and informational efficiency are examined.
The Impact of Environment and Adoption Factors on the Performance of Financial EDI systems
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 75~88
Many Korean banks and companies have adopted EDI to replace traditioanal paper documents by electronic ones, which can move much faster with greater accuracy, Also, it is expected to reduce overall costs and maintain good relationships with customers. However, in practice, the performance of EDI seems to be less than expected. The purpose of this paper is to identify the impact of environment and adoption factors on the performance of financial EDI. We proposed a model for the relationships based on the existing literature and peformed a survey of Korean commercial banks and companies using KTNET. The results of this study are as follows: First, the business environment represented by the size of companies and the frequency of transactions showed a negative impact on the performance in terms of efficiency, which is quite converse to the common belief. Second, the technical environment, including computing skills of users and operators, showed a positive impact on the performance in terms of effectiveness. Third, the clearer the adoption purpose, the higher is the performace as intended, while the initiative for the adoption process showed no significant impact.
Functional Requirements about Modeling Methodology for CALS
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 89~113
Modeling methodology has been widely used for analysis and design of a information system. Specially, under the CALS environments, modeling approach is more important because the enterprise functions are inter-related and information sharing speeds up the business. In this paper, we suggest functional requirements about modeling methodology for CALS by surveying the IDEF0 and ARIS. The former is FIPS 183 and the latter is basic methodology of SAP/R3 which is world-wide ERP system. The proposed functional requirements include all semantics of IDEF0 and adds some features. The first is adding modeling components which are semantic representations. In addition to ICOMs, we add the time and cost component which is required to execute the function. The second is tracing mechanism. When we need some information, we drive the functions related with the information by reverse tracing of the function which produces the information as a output and input. Through the tracing, we find out the bottleneck process or high cost process. This approach guarantees the integrity of data by designating the data ownership. Finally, we suggest the final decomposition level. We call the final decomposed function into unit function which has only one output data. We can combine and reconstruct some of functions such as 'lego block' combination.
The Analysis of Functions and Development of CITIS(Contractor Integrated Technical Information Service)
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 115~135
In this paper, we discuss CITIS(Contractor Integrated Technical Information Service) as the information infrastructure of CALS. CITIS is a contractor-developed and maintained service to provide electronic access and/or delivery of Government-procured contractually required information. As the concept of CALS is expanded government acquisition process into industry business, the CITIS is also expanded military CITIS into commercial CITIS. First, we describe CITIS services and functions defined by MIL-STD-974, and then specify the difference of military CITIS and commercial CITIS. The problem of current CITIS for inter-operable business process is indicated, and legal issues for sharing of CITIS data are also discussed.
A Study on the Development of Enterprise Resource Planning System for Small-and-Medium Sized Enterprises
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 137~153
The acceptance of enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in the industries is essential to enhance the enterprise-wide productivity and global competitiveness. In this study, we first describe the needs for the ERP system and the structural backgrounds of the system. Then we suggest our strategies for the implementation of the standard ERP system under the small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
A CALS Integrated Database Design Utilizing CORBA
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 2, issue 2, 1997, Pages 155~169
The CALS integrated database is a key information technology in which CALS implements an information sharing system to enable digital data transfers for technical and non-technical information in distributed and heterogeneous environments. Such heterogeneously distributed CALS information needs to be systematically incorporated so that it can provide a global data view for CALS users. In this paper, we investigated the technologies of CALS integrated database, and proposed a system prototype to implement an integrated data environment (IDE) utilizing distributed object environments CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture).
