Web-based Knowledge Management for Using Product Data in E-Commerce
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 1~18
As the networks (i.e., intranet and internet) proliferate all over the world, it is inevitable to move some (or all) of the enterprise activities into virtual spaces. Differently from business data, product data have complex semantics and thus are not properly exchanged among different application programs. Even though some neutral formats of product data have been developed by standard organizations, translating them among various application programs still needs the comprehensive understanding of the complex semantics. Recently, it is widely recognized that capturing more knowledge is the next step In overcome the current difficulties on sharing product data. In this paper, we present Web-based knowledge management that facilitates seamless sharing of product data among various application programs in virtual enterprises. Three types of knowledge are managed by the knowledge management system - metadata, ontology, and mapping. In this environment, we consider both business applications (e.g., ERP, SCM, and EDI System) and engineering applications (e.g., CAD and CAM system).
Logistics Competitiveness under the Electronic Commerce Environment
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 19~37
There are numerous researches being studied regarding Electronic Commerce (EC), that is one of the hottest issues for the 21 century in the various areas such as management, engineering and science; etc, This paper concerns the logistics functions which are essential for completing a commerce process even under the EC environment. Even though both the traditional and the electronic commerce via internet share many common problems regarding logistics, new logistical issues are generated as the EC is being popularized. We study the logistics competitiveness under the EC environment and provide ways to improve the logistical performance. We first point the emerging logistical paradigm to check the issues under EC. Next, logistics competitiveness factors are provided. Finally we propose several ways for the logistical performance and cost perspective.
A Study on the Development of XML/EDI Tool Prototype
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 39~54
The importance of EDI has been so emphasized that we need exchange/maintain electronic documents effectively, and convert them to other formats. The traditional EDI, however, is facing on the limitation of growth because of its high expense, and the closeness of information sharing. The EDIs of next generation, like open EDI, object-oriented EDI, and Internet EDI, have appeared to solve these problems. Finally, XML/EDI, which is very effective to solve these kinds of problems, is now replacing the traditional EDI and the HTML in Internet and, is influencing on e-Business. So, we are going to suggest a solution which uses XML/EDI as a substitute for the traditional one. First, we analyzed the problems of the traditional EDI system and organized the structure of XML/EDI system, Next, we developed the prototype of Internet bookstore to show the effectiveness and strength of XML/EDI over the traditional EDI.
An Implementation of 128bit Block Cipher Algorithm for Electronic Commerce
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 55~73
Recently; EC(Electronic Commerce) is increasing with high speed based on the expansion of Internet. EC which is done on the cyber space through Internet has strong point like independence from time and space. On the contrary, it also has weak point like security problem because anybody can access easily to the system due to open network attribute of Internet. Therefore, we need the solutions that protect the security problem for safe and useful EC activity. One of these solutions is the implementation of strong cipher algorithm. NC(Nonpolynomial Complete) cipher algorithm proposed in this paper is good for the security and it overcome the limit of current 64bits cipher algorithm using 128bits key length for input, output and encryption key, Moreover, it is designed for the increase of calculation complexity and probability calculation by adapting more complex design for subkey generation regarded as one of important element effected to encryption. The result of simulation by the comparison with other cipher algorithm for capacity evaluation of proposed NC cipher algorithm is that the speed of encryption and decryption is 7.63 Mbps per block and the speed of subkey generation is 2,42 μ sec per block. So, prosed NC cipher algorithm is regarded as proper level for encryption. Furthermore, speed of subkey generation shows that NC cipher algorithm has the probability used to MAC(Message Authentication Code) and block implementation of Hash function.
Developing an Electronic Commerce Architecture for Agricultural Product - A Business To Business model -
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 75~91
The new paradigm, which is called Electronic Commerce (EC), has greatly influenced not only enterprises but also other part of our society. Many goods have been actively transacted through EC all over the world. But there is a great difference between agricultural products and industrial products in terms of selling and buying behavior. Industrial products are well standardized and time-invariant in quality but agricultural products are not. Even the domestic distribution channels of agricultural products are much complex and are not modernized with internet technology. In this study, we first identify the behaviors of electronically transacting agricultural products and then develop and EC architecture far agricultural products in Korea. We suggest that EC for agricultural products focuses on B2B (Business to Business) model and various agricultural information should be distributed from B2B market over all supply chain and demand chain channels.
Korea Network eXchange as a B2B Network Infrastructure
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 93~104
Domestic automotive industry is also facing the moment it should be with a competitively priced and highly qualified automotive ta compete with worldwide automotive makers of world market through global marketing and global sourcing. At this point, weve been studying xNX model of USA, Japan and Europe with OEMs, suppliers and KAMA(Korea Automotive Manufacturers Association) to give a network infrastructure of guaranteed service quality network performance, reliability, security and trouble handling. We hope all efforts above mentioned will make the whole industry more competitive and powerful.
Development of Database Broker for Enterprise Integration
The Journal of Society for e-Business Studies, volume 5, issue 1, 2000, Pages 105~122
Enterprise integration and virtual enterprise are practical visions of industrial information implementations in the information society. In these environments, the distributed and heterogeneous data sources should be exchanged and shared in effective and integrated way. However, the distributed and heterogeneous data sources are managed by independent and heterogeneous computer systems, thus system users and developers are faced difficulties in implementing enterprise integration environments, In this study, we designed and developed a database broker system utilizing a routing broker method to provide transparent location access mechanisms for the distributed and heterogeneous data sources. The proposed mechanism is designed to act as a middle tier between clients and multiple servers, and adopts Java, CORBA, and JDBC as its state-of-the-art techniques.

Over the past several decades, several architectural approaches have been applied to develop Information Systems, The software architectural model has been recognized as one of the most important methods for improving productivity. Most conceptual models are difficult to understand and interpret at various system models. As a consequence, conceptual models of many Information Systems fail to represent, exploit, and apply to various aspects, which is needed for reducing development step of the architecture. In this paper, we will explain the architectural model as the 4＋1 View of UML. This model integrates the Knowledge Management System into five views： the Logical View, the Process View, the Deployment View, Implementation View, and the Use-Case View. Moreover, this paper will not only provide information on the application of the software architectural model by stakeholders, but also ultimately improve productivity,

In recent years, many retail businesses jumped on the Internet auction bandwagon and paid substantially high fees to learn and develop proper business strategies for this new environment. Unlike what most businesses in the real world presume, this research shows that discriminatory-price ascending-bid auctions in a digital economy might be not very beneficial for the sellers on the Internet, if sellers sell the identical digital products through both a typical posted-price market and an auction. Using an extensive technology infrastructure along with suitable incentives and rules for market agents, we found that a discriminatory-price ascending-bid auction, which is the most popular auction mechanism on the Internet, serves consumers better than it does the sellers or producers in the digital economy. That is, the average prices for digital goods in these auctions are substantially lower than the prices in a posted-price market. This shows that it is not so wise for sellers to jump on the bandwagon of Internet auctions, if there is a market place with posted-price mechanisms which sells comparable items, or if a seller does not have special advantages or strategies in this new market institution. Electronic market mechanisms provide powerful means of understanding and measuring consumer characteristics including willingness-to-pay and other demographics for sellers or producers. Many concern that sellers may extract the entire surplus from the market by using customization on the Internet, thus consumers will be worse off in this digital economy. We found that these sellers who can customize their products and prices fail to capture the whole consumers surplus and cannot exercise a monopoly. One major explanation for this phenomenon is that the competition among the sellers prohibits them from charging prices according to customers demand for each product, where switching from one seller to another is not so difficult for the customers, and reselling products among the buyers are prohibited.
ATTITUDE IS AN ANTECEDENT TO INFORMATION SYSTEMS USE: A META-ANALYSIS OF NEARLY THIRTY YEARS OF EMPIRICAL RESEARCH

In spite of seemingly conflicting findings, a meta-analysis of studies published between 1971 and 1998 demonstrates an unambiguous relationship between attitude and IS use. The apparent contradictions arise principally because of methodological inconsistencies in the way that attitude was measured (belief or affect) and the timing of the measurement of attitude vis-5-vis the use of the technology. We found that the affective dimension of attitude is more powerful than the cognitive dimension for explaining IS use. However, neither is particularly strong in predicting future use.
