Purpose: In the private sector, many Customer Satisfaction Index Models have already been developed and are being applied in a variety of industries. In spite of continuously increasing of quality for military goods, measuring tools of Quality Satisfaction have not been developed yet. Method: In 2004, Defense Quality Assurance Agency and Seoul National University jointly developed MCSI(Military Customer Satisfaction Index) as a benchmark NCSI(National Customer Satisfaction Index), but it is limited to aply to military goods. We focused on product quality and developed MQSI(Military Quality Satisfaction Index) Model. Result: We propose a new Satisfaction Index Model(MQSI, Military Quality Satisfaction Index) that can be applied to military goods. Conclusion: In this study, configuration and variables of MQSI Model are described. Also the result of preliminary survey is briefly explained.

Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 40, issue 3, 2012, Pages 245~258
DOI : 10.7469/JKSQM.2012.40.3.245
Purpose: Recently, many quality issues are aroused in military forces, such as failures in K-series weapons, combat boots defects and 40mm ammunition explosion accident. To address these problems, the one and only government defense quality assurance agency, DTaQ(Defense Agency for Technology & Quality) tried to improve many quality assurance procedures and introduced new systems such as MRA(Manufacturing Readiness Assessment), TRA(Technology Readiness Assessment), and etc. However, as the amount of war supplies increasing every year, the resource(budget and manpower) for quality assurance is limited. Therefore, DTaQ had difficulty to handle the issue efficiently and effectively, and we propose the method to address this problem. Methods: The most popular quality assurance technique is a sampling method, in this research, we first review the many sampling techniques and compare the strength and weakness of each method. After then, we selected the most appropriate sampling techniques and applied the procedures in combat force support material and ammunition areas. Results: We can reduce the number of samples dramatically, thus the required amount of labor time and money can be saved. Also, the new sampling technique enforces the supplier to produce the product which meets the target value(desirable value). Conclusion: We can reduce the number of samples dramatically, thus the required amount of labor time and money can be saved. Also, the new sampling technique enforces the supplier to produce the product which meets the target value(desirable value). Lastly, since the new sampling method requires many numerical calculations, we developed a simple android OS smart-phone application which can be used easily in field.

Analysis of mixture experimental data with process variables
Lim, Yong-B. ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Quality Management, volume 40, issue 3, 2012, Pages 347~358
DOI : 10.7469/JKSQM.2012.40.3.347
Purpose: Given the mixture components - process variables experimental data, we propose the strategy to find the proper combined model. Methods: Process variables are factors in an experiment that are not mixture components but could affect the blending properties of the mixture ingredients. For example, the effectiveness of an etching solution which is measured as an etch rate is not only a function of the proportions of the three acids that are combined to form the mixture, but also depends on the temperature of the solution and the agitation rate. Efficient designs for the mixture components - process variables experiments depend on the mixture components - process variables model which is called a combined model. We often use the product model between the canonical polynomial model for the mixture and process variables model as a combined model. Results: First we choose the reasonable starting models among the class of admissible product models and practical combined models suggested by Lim(2011) based on the model selection criteria and then, search for candidate models which are subset models of the starting model by the sequential variables selection method or all possible regressions procedure. Conclusion: Good candidate models are screened by the evaluation of model selection criteria and checking the residual plots for the validity of the model assumption. The strategy to find the proper combined model is illustrated with examples in this paper.

Purpose: Due to the explosive growth and widespread use of smartphones, new business opportunities are emerging. Despite the importance of creating customer value in using smartphone applications, past studies on have mainly focused on functions or factors and specifications that influence users to use the device. Methods: This study is intended to identify how customer dissatisfaction from the use of smartphone application services affects customer sentiment and behavior. The research model is tested via a survey of 290 smartphone application users. Results: The result of this empirical study indicates that customer dissatisfaction significantly affects the user`s disappointment and regret in using a service, which are subordinate values of customer emotion. The user`s anger is positively associated with `Negative word of mouth` and `Complaint`, which are subordinate values of customer behavior, but not with an intention to switch to another service. `Regret` and `Disappointment` are positively associated with `Negative word of mouth` and `Switching intention`, but not with `Making direct complaints`. Finally, customer`s negative sentiments are a significant intermediary in the relationship between customer dissatisfaction and behavioral response. Conclusion: Finally, the study offers a more systematic understanding on the phasal response process of customer dissatisfaction in relation to the provision of smartphone application services.
