A Stage Model of Organizational Knowledge Management: A Latent Content Analysis
Lee, Jang-Hwan ; Kim, Young-Gul ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 1~9
This study developed an integrated management framework for KM, consisting of four major management objects and organizational initiatives: managerial and technical initiatives. Based on the developed framework, it proposes a stage model of organizational KM from Initiation, Propagation, Integration to Networking stage with detail explanations focusing on management goals and activities. To validate the proposed stage model, this study conducted a preliminary study with a latent content analysis of 15 KM cases. Form the results, though is could not validate the time sequence of each stage because of the limited information of cases, it shows meaningful findings in that there are a kind of relationship among management goals, activities and characteristics of management object of cases.
Knowledge Representation and The Role of Meta-Knowledge in Knowledge Management
Kim, Hong-Gee ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 10~16
The main purpose of this paper is to explore the role of meta-knowledge for knowledge creation and knowledge transformation in cooperative problem solving processes. For this I will discuss what the primary functions of meta-knowledge are from the knowledge representation perspective. The proposed theoretical model is useful to develop a new form of knowledge management support systems beyond the first generation of knowledge-based systems.
Knowledge-based Decision Making using System Dynamics

IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 17~28
As knowledge has been recognized as a new resource in gaining organizational competitiveness, Knowledge Management (KM) is suggested as a method to manage and apply knowledge for business management. KM research, however, has focused on identifying, storing, and distributing the transaction-related knowledge in an organization. There has been little research on applying the knowledge to decision-making or strategy development that is the main task of business management. The application of knowledge to decision making has higher impact on organizational performance rather than just the knowledge management for process transaction. In this research, we suggest System Dynamics (SD) for the knowledge-based decision-making. Based on the modeling method of SD, we can translate partial and implicit knowledge resident in individual's mental model into organized explicit knowledge. The simulation test of the organized knowledge model enables decision-makers to understand the structure of the target problem and its behavior mechanism, which facilitates effective decision-making. We will compare the proposed method and other KM methods and discuss this research based on the application case to a real telecommunication company.

Kim, Young-Gul ; Yu, Sung-Ho ; Lee, Jang-Hwan ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 29~36
Many organizations have applied the traditional Information Strategy Planning methodologies to planning knowledge management. This approach, however, cannot sufficiently realize the strategic value of various kinds of knowledge. To overcome above problems, this research classifies knowledge according to its features and identifies characteristics of each knowledge category. And then, structured Knowledge Strategy Planning methodology,
, is proposed. With
, an organization can identify organizational knowledge and develop KM architecture from both perspectives of the performance measurement system and business processes.

With the rapid changes of business environments and the tremendous amount of information generated from those environments, most companies must learn to manage those changes and information more effectively. Furthermore, within those amounts of information, the information that meets with achieving the goal of each company should be selected and managed as a core competency, i.e. the knowledge, visible and invisible assets of the company. Knowledge management, as a tool of creating, sharing, and applying such knowledge, has pursued those requirements of companies and been studied by many researchers and consultants, especially focusing on the Knowledge Map'. It is said that a knowledge map is a powerful tool for scanning and managing the knowledge that exists in a company and that it is the most important part of establishing a knowledge management base. Until now, however, there have been no specific or practical models for establishing a knowledge map, in spite of the concern. For this reason, this paper suggests a practical model for establishing a knowledge map in terms of a knowledge acquisition procedure based on the traditional research concerning concept maps. In addition to this, for examining the validity of the model, a case study on the 'P' steel and iron company has been performed. This paper's methodology on developing a knowledge map and the procedures to apply them to the real business environment will suggest a cornerstone in the field of practical implementation of knowledge management.

IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 44~53
While knowledge management (KM) needs to be introduced in order to enhance the competitiveness of Korean firms, most of the current literature focuses on defining the concept of KM and developing its framework. This research attempts to develop an introduction methodology of KM, based on four dimensions such as organization, information technology, process, and culture. The methodology was applied to firm L, which recently adopted KM. A result from the analysis of this case study shows that firm L performed well in the dimensions of organization, information technology, and culture.
The Development of Knowledge Management System Based on a Knowledge Life Cycle
Han, Kwan-Hee ; Song, Hee-Kyoung ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 54~59
Presented in this paper is a development of knowledge management system based on knowledge life cycle. Knowledge processes in an organization have a life cycle from creation to disposal. So, KMSs have to support the entire life cycle of knowledge. This paper proposes desired knowledge life cycle model, and extracted functional requirements for KMS. For the fulfillment of this requirements, we developed KMS called XM-Brenic/MSX. This system has 6 components for supporting the knowledge life cycle.

IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 60~64
Faced with increasing competitive pressures to reduce time-to-market, many business organizations have recognized that shortening the design cycle by taking full advantage of their intellectual property is inevitable in maintaining their market share. This paper describes a knowledge management system for machine tool design. Product structuring, change management, and complex design knowledge management are possible through the developed system. The system can speed up the design process by making necessary data instantly available as it is needed and keeping track of all the relevant design information and knowledge including individual decisions, design intentions, documents, and drawings.

Nowadays, the modeling of systems have been enabled by various models and methodologies that are used for different purpose and perspectives upon the systems. The integrated modeling methodology that integrates these models and methodologies has become challenging issues in system integration such as CIM and PDM. The primary objective of this paper is to propose the comprehensive integrated modeling methodology that integrates the Extended IDEF0 function model, OOIDEF0 information model, navigation model, interface model, and organization model for an effective analysis and design of the CIMS for ship production. This methodology can be used for the integrated system, and cover the systems development life cycle in an integrated fashion. In order to prove the consistency and efficiency of the proposed methodology, the CIMS for ship production is modeled.

Jung, Ho-Sang ; Jeong, Bong-Ju ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 78~91
This paper presents a computerized quality forecasting system for glass manufacturing. In forecasting the molten glass quality, we are concerned with three major issues : (1) to find the reasonable time lags between a set of process conditions and the quality measurement of glass products, (2) to find the most significant process variables affecting the quality, and (3) to construct the appropriate causal forecasting models using genetic algorithms. The experimental results show the proposed model results in better forecasting than linear regression model. The suggested forecasting model was implemented successfully and is being currently used in a real manufacturing line.
A Decision Support System for Machining Shop Control
Park, Hong-Seok ; Seo, Yoon-Ho ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 92~99
Conflicts and interruptions caused by resource failures and rush orders require a nonlinear dynamic production management. Generally the PP&C systems used in industry presently do not meet these requirements because of their rigid concepts. Starting with the grasp of the disadvantages of current approaches, this paper presents a control structure that enables system to react to various malfunctions using a planning tolerance concept. Also, production processes are modeled by using Fuzzy-Petri-Net modeling tool in other to handle the complexity of job allocation and the existence of many disparities. On the basis of this model the developed system support the short-term shop control by rule based decision.

This paper presents an economic analysis for alternatives of the building telecommunications cabling system to accommodate multimedia services. Four alternatives are developed with respect to capacities of the building telecommunications cabling systems. Economic analysis includes qualitative analysis as well as quantitative one and the results of those analyses are incorporated with AHP(analytic hierarchical process) method. In analyzing the alternatives, based on the possible growth of multimedia traffic and evolution of access networks, various scenarios are considered. The results suggest not only the most competitive alternative but also the conditions for each alternative to gain the competitive edge.

Kong, Myung-Dal ; Kim, Jung-Ja ;
IE interfaces, volume 13, issue 1, 2000, Pages 110~119
Resource-constrained project scheduling is to allocate limited resources to activities to optimize certain objective functions and to determine a start time for each activity in the project such that precedence constraints and resource requirements are satisfied. This study suggests a multi-project scheduling model which can level work loads, make the most of production capacity and restrain the delay of delivery by developing a heuristic algorithm which minimizes the project completion time and maximizes the load rate under resource constraints.

As science advances in many fields, the task of accommodating all human beings with comfort and safety becomes increasingly complex. The anthropometric data are basis of product design, but most of the anthropometric data for Korean emphasize the anthropological, physiological and engineering points of views. Also due to the scarce of body dimensions needed in designing products, the industrial designers are cautious in applying these data to design products. The purpose of this study was to select and measure the body parts that are necessary for the industrial designers but are scarce in existing data, and to illustrate the human body with measures instead of tables for easy understanding and application to industrial product design. Three hundreds and eighteen males and 260 females of age from 18 to 60 participated for this study. Eighty-two dimensions in standing and seating posture were selected to measure. The front views, side views and some working postures for man and woman are illustrated with measures. This study could provide the most vital data to assist designers in creating products and environments that better accommodate human needs.

As the internet dramatically grows, internet electronic commerce is being increased. But, as products distributed with ESD(Electronic Software Distribution) are in the form of electronic file, it is difficult to prohibit illegal copy of products. Therefore, new technology is needed to distinguish legal products from illegal ones. In this paper, we present the ESD's requirements, characteristics and a new dynamic license management technology to prevent illegal copy.
