DOI : 10.7469/JKSQM.2013.41.3.337
Purpose: As there are more cases of forged brands, change of awareness is urgently required at the governmental, corporate and consumer levels. Therefore, this study aims to positively analyze the correlation between forged brand quality and purchase intentions perceived by consumers based on types of preference of luxury brands. Methods: In order to achieve the above purpose, this study derived a model of causal relationships among the forged brand quality, preference of typified luxury brands, and purchase intentions. SPSS 20.0 was applied for data processing. Frequency analysis ad descriptive statistical analysis were conducted for basic data and measurement tools were verified through feasibility and reliability analyses. Multiple regression analysis was conducted to verify the hypotheses. Results: Based on the results, only utilitarian quality positively (+) affected non-intrinsic preference while its impact on intrinsic preference was negative (-). On the other hand, hedonic quality was significantly positive (+) but the impact was not significant. Both utilitarian and hedonic qualities had significantly positive (+) impacts on the intentions to purchase forged brands with the impact of hedonic quality relatively higher. Conclusion: These results clarified that the overall consumption of Korean consumers had not entered its maturity, yet. Also, Korean consumers regard forged brands as alternatives to luxury brands mostly because of hedonic quality. As hedonic quality is added, Korean consumers` purchase intentions became higher. Based on these results, this study suggested the measures to be taken for the country to develop into an advanced country in the luxury market which is becoming more global and overcome the barrier of its old trend in imitation at the four levels of manufacturers, distributors, government, and consumers.

Lee, Mal-Young ;
Journal of the Korean society for quality management, volume 41, issue 3, 2013, Pages 405~412
DOI : 10.7469/JKSQM.2013.41.3.405
Purpose: In this paper, the improvement of the image quality is investigated. The image quality is degraded by the drift phenomenon of EO/IR (Electro-Optical/Infrared) device on UAV. The drift phenomenon means that the image of EO/IR equipment on UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) moves to the unintended direction. This phenomenon should be improved for successful flight mission. Methods: To improve the drift phenomenon, the drift compensation method, the combination algorithm of FMC(Forward Motion Compensation) and AMC(Angular Motion Compensation) method, are introduced to calculate pitch and azimuth angle. Result values of pitch and azimuth angle are used for the improvement of image quality in EO/IR control logic. Results: The image quality is quantitatively improved more than 15 times through field test data of flight. Conclusion: Using the drift compensation technique, the image quality for EO/IR equipment is improved over 15 times than existing methods. This means the user of UAV with EO/IR device can perform a successful mission by keeping the line of sight for the target accurately.

DOI : 10.7469/JKSQM.2013.41.3.413
Purpose: System availability and life cycle cost are often used to evaluate the system performance and is influenced by the operation and maintenance characteristic. In this paper, we propose the method to improve life cycle cost and satisfy the target availability through redundancy allocation. Methods: We consider the redundancy is available at all items in multi level system. Thus, we assume that sub-assembly, module, components can be duplicated. Simulation and genetic algorithm are employed to optimize redundancy allocation. Results: Target availability is higher, the life cycle cost is increased. In addition, the items for redundancy are selected at higher level in multi level system if target availability is higher. Conclusion: We could know that target availability affects the duplication number of items and the selection of redundancy items. For further study, we will consider new optimization algorithms to compare with the proposed GA algorithm and improve optimization performance.

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, this paper suggests to use so called, Defense Quality Score, which is based on Taguchi loss function and developed in this research. Methods: Current defense specification states only the minimum requirement to produce the military supplies. Therefore, it is not easy to indue the continuous quality improvement of the supplies. This research suggests to use the defense quality score which measures the current status of defense supplies`quality characteristics. Results: We applied the defense quality score concept into the hot pepper sauce and long time stockpiled ammunition. We first categorize the quality characteristics into three categories, then assign the certain amount of score based on the importance of the characteristics. Lastly, we applied the modified Taguchi loss function to calculate the achieved score of the characteristics. The perfect score is 100 and the closer to the score, the better product it indicates. Conclusions: In this research, we developed the modified Taguchi loss function to apply into the korean defense supplies. The loss function is utilized to calculate the achieved level of satisfaction of the supplies based on the defense specifications. The application of defense quality score may help to stimulate the continuous quality improvement and encourage the good will quality competition among the military providers.
