Design of Intelligent Material Quality Control System based on Pattern Analysis using Artificial Neural Network
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 38~53
In resolving industrial quality control problems, a vector of multiple quality characteristic variables is involved rather than a single variable. However, it is not guaranteed that a multivariate control chart based on statistical methods can monitor abnormal signal in case that small changes of relationship between each variables causes abnormal production process. Hence a quality control system for real-time monitoring of the multi-dimensional quality characteristic vector under a multivariate normal process is needed to enhance tile production system quality performance. A pattern analysis approach based on self-organizing map (SOM), an unsupervised learning technique of neural network, is applied to the design of such a quality control system. In this study we present a new material quality control system based on pattern analysis approach and illustrate the effectiveness of proposed system using actual electronic company material data.
An Analysis of Relationships Between Quality Level of Healthcare and Customer Behaviors
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 54~64
Service industries are rapidly increased and the environment of service is also changing in healthcare settings. Those make them change their management strategies and carry out many researches. Till now, single-item behavioral intention scale or direct measuring has some limitations that we have to consider its efficiency and it is difficult to explain phenomena of broad part in the process of determining behavioral intentions. In this paper, we examine the dimensionality of healthcare service in Korea through the multi-item behavioral intention scale. In addition, we are going to investigate the nature of the relationship between service quality perceptions which have unique construct, and consumer satisfaction judgements in the formation of consumers' behavioral intentions. we are going to conclude that the linear combination model of service quality and customer satisfaction can describe the process of formation of customers' behavioral intentions best and provide some managerial implications to decision makers for redistribution of materials and human resources.
A Construction Model of Quality Management System in Public Administration Sector by ISO 9001:2000 / KS A 9001:2001
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 65~81
ISO 9001:1994 / KS A 9001:1998 was recently revised as ISO 9001:2000 / KS A 9001:2001, so as to be used in non-manufacturing companies as well. In this paper, a model for quality management system in public administration sector was proposed by customizing ISO 9001:2000 / KS A 9001:2001. The proposed model is compatible with ISO 9001:2000 / KS A 9001:2001, and expected to be used as a guideline for those people who are involved in establishing quality administration system in public sector.

A Study of the Software Testing Methods and fitness of the Reliability Models
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 92~102
Software testing during development and operation should exercise to obtain the desired software quality and leave failure data set. So far, many software reliability models are classified and can be used to measure a software reliability only based on its failure history But, in practice, developers or testers of software systems must decide which existing software reliability model can be fitted. In this paper, we will show that an appropriate reliability model can be selected by considering relations between characteristics of each testing environment and models' assumptions. Several methods of software testing are presented and discussed. Also, unit test, integrated test, function test and system test that are sequentially exercised during development will be introduced.

Study on the Business Performance Evaluation with VA and EVA
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 153~160
The proposed system measures business performance by considering both VA(Value-Added), which represents stakeholder's point of view and EVA(Economic Value-Added), which represents shareholder's point of view. To do so, we suggest a business performance scheme which utilizes VA per Capita (Value- Added/Workers) and EVA to Invested Capital(Economic Value-Added /Invested Capital). For effective measurement of business performance, we consider simultaneously not only quantitative financial factors such as VA, EVA and cash flow but also qualitative value drivers such as defect ratio, inventory level, customer satisfaction, enterprise culture and so on. However, we don't consider the qualitative factors due to the limited data. To demonstrate the performance of the system, we conducted a case study using financial data of Korean automobile industry over 16 years from 1981 to 1996, which is taken from database of KISFAS (Korea Investors Services Financial Analysis System).
A Study of POE on Apartment with QFD Application
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 29, issue 4, 2001, Pages 161~169
Recently, the quality of residential space is emphasized much more than ever. This is caused by various changes of social environment. Those users, i.e. the occupants, seemed very sensitive to any changes of their environment. Therefore many producers (construction companies) need to be concentrated on the occupant's needs, and try to apply those needs to their design of products(apartments). This study aims to design the POE(Post Occupancy Evaluation) categorization methodology with QFD application. Therefore QFD performed to produce much tailored occupant's needs as a transformation of technically processed value. For this purpose, categories were experimented for a pilot project of POE. As a result, it showed a possibility and need of accuracy and maturity for the design of POE in its categorization.
