A Study on Electronic Commerce for Industrial Design Related Items
Lee, Won-Young ; Kim, Dae-Woon ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 218~229
This paper proposes how to develop the EC(Electronic Commerce) for industrial-related items, which has not been tried yet in EC areas. Usually industrial design derives an idea and concept for a new product from the needs of end-users and manufacturers. Then this product is developed through the design process such as idea-sketch, rendering, and design modeling mock-up. The purpose of this paper is to vitalize the trade for some items which are necessary for the design process and are intermediate products. That is, the idea and concept from the needs and seeds can be dealt with as one item. Furthermore, the idea-sketch and rendering materializing from the idea can be an item also. By doing so, excellent design items which could be thrown away in the middle of the process can be made into valuable commodities. Then we can specify the role of Designer, Manufacturer, and End-User as a buyer or a seller.

Information technologies centered on the internet in the area of shipbuilding and marine engineering further incur the needs to increase the flexibility of the organization, the dispersion of work process, and the use of out sourcing, as well as the globalization of related market. In near future, electronic commerce and concurrent engineering based on CALS/EC and the Internet will be an integral part of the environment and upon these changes, ship design and construction will become a computer supported cooperative work of many dispersed and specialized groups. As the means of active response to these environmental changes, many new concepts such as digital shipbuilding, virtual shipyard, and simulation based design are appearing. In this paper, the concept and current status of digital manufacturing in general manufacturing industry will be reviewed. Then, related technologies, area of application and methods of digital manufacturing in shipbuilding and marine industries are presented. In addition, virtual assembly simulation system for shipbuilding(VASSS), a tool for crane operability and block erection simulation in virtual dock based on 3D product model, will be introduced.

Some extensions of minimum spanning tree problem are NP-hard problem in which polynomial-time solutions for them do not exist. Because of their complexity, recently some researcher have used the genetic algorithms to solve them. In genetic algorithm approach the Prufer number is usually used to represent a tree. In this paper we discuss the problem of the Prufer number encoding method and propose an improved genetic operation. Using a numerical comparison we demonstrate the excellence of the proposed method.
Survivable Network Design with Hop Limit Using Longest Shortcut Method
Kwack, Sun-Jung ; Han, Chi-Geun ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 247~255
For the recent multimedia service, the network should be fast, stable, and reliable. In order to provide reliability of the network, certain survivability of the network, which guarantees it's functions even though there is some failure on the network, should be satisfied. Also, for a pair of nodes on the network, there must be paths of which numbers of hops are within a certain limit for realtime service between them. In this paper, we propose a longest shortcut method for solving the survivable network design problems with hop limit. Through the computational results, we compare the efficiency of the method with an existing shortest shortcut method and find that the proposed method is more efficient than the shortest shortcut method.

Cho, Kee-Sung ; Jang, Hee-Seon ; Lim, Seog-Ku ; Kim, Yeoung-Sun ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 256~262
In this paper, we develop a framework for identifying the quality of service(QoS) and network performance (NP) in the IMT-2000 services, and analyze the QoS/NP system in the 3GPP IMT-2000 services. Based on the ITU-T E.800, the QoS is classified into customer, technical, contents, telecommunications quality, and internet communication quality, and the NP consists of the service access/transmission, reliability/operating & maintenance, charging performance, and mobility management performance. Under the basic framework, the major parameters in the IMT-2000 services are identified for each QoS/NP criterion. The QoS framework in the IMT-2000 user aspects is also introduced to determine the major QoS parameters. Finally, to define the performance factors of the network elements in the NP system, the various control parameters for the wireless and core networks are presented.

Lee, Seung-Hoon ; Min, Byeong-Hyeon ; Kim, Byeong-Gon ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 263~269
The injection molding process is a one of the most efficient techniques for manufacturing plastic parts of complex shape at low cost. In injection molding, molten plastic material is injected into the mold and cooled. Selection of molding conditions greatly affects the quality of molded parts. In this case study, we attempted to optimize the injection molding condition for a cooling filter using Taguchi experimental design methodology. The injection molding experiments were carried out using the Moldflow simulation software.
Product Liability Prevention Policies through the Improvement of Product Safety and Reliability
Kim, Jin-Kyu ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 270~278
Product Liability(PL) is a legal policy to deal with global competition by improving domestic industrial competitive power and to reduce the cost of defect products. The purpose of this paper is to address the state of the art solutions to dispute on PL, in reality of a frequent occurrence of global product exchange focussing on product safety that is one of the most important functions of PL and to improve solution of the product safety and reliability responsive to PL. To minimize PL exposure, manufacturers should reflect comprehensive product safety and reliability concepts in establishing PL prevention policies. Total PL prevention policies are composed of total quality management and product safety management system in respect of safety design, risk, and reliability. These PL prevention activities should be performed consistently during the total product life cycle, especially product research and development periods.

Kim, Jin-Wook ; Lee, Hyun-Ju ; Kim, Jin ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 279~285
A break-even analysis is a method used widely for profit planning or decisions in most companies. It is useful tool in financial studies because it is simple and offers useful insights from a modest amount of data. Although it is widely used, it has some weaknesses. It is limited in particular to the analysis for a short term time horizon or one period. We suggest a new break-even procedure to analyze projects with a long term time horizon as keeping the simplicity of a conventional break-even analysis. We will make efforts doing to include actual data for a cost or an income as much as possible rather than developing a mathematical model to improve unreality of a traditional break-even analysis. Also, we will use the spreadsheet software to solve problems.
Warranty Models with Discrete Preventive Maintenance
Kim, Che-Soong ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 286~296
Products which are sold with warranty, preventive maintenance actions by manufacturers and/or buyers have an impact on the total costs for both parties. In this paper, we develop the models to study the expected warranty cost for products with free repairable warranty with three types of discrete preventive maintenance. We deal with by utilizing the concept that preventive maintenance reduces the virtual age of the system. We assume that the maintenance planning horizon can be segmented into k discrete and equally sized periods. In such a scenario, numerical examples are presented.

Mok, Hak-Soo ; Cho, Jong-Rae ; Jung, Yoong-Ho ; Kang, Young-Hun ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 297~307
Since the pressure for recycling has been increasing, the disassembly, which is pre-process of recycling, has been becoming very important process. The goal of disassembly for recycling is to separate different materials to the greatest extent with least effort. DFD (Design for Disassembly) is a design philosophy for improving product designs for simpler or less costly disassembly operations. This paper proposes a new DFD methodology that can estimate the standard disassembly time and evaluate the disassemblablity of parts. We select some determining and influencing factors related with disassembly process, and estimate the assembly time using motion analysis. By the levels of the determining and influencing factors, the disassemblability is evaluated, and finally, the tables that include the time and score of disassembly are suggested.
The Development of the Web Based Cutting Parameter Selection System Using Group Technology
Lee, Sung-Youl ; Kwak, Kyu-Sup ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 308~315
This study presents the web based cutting parameter selection system using Group Technology (GT). The GT is basically applied to classify and code the work material and cutting process which are main factors to affect cutting parameter selection. The proposed system has been designed to electronically select proper cutting conditions based on the stored GT database. The existing approaches used in most small and medium sized companies are basically to use manufacturing engineer's experience or to find the recommended values from the manufacturing engineers handbook. These processes are often time consuming and inconsistent, especially when a new engineer is involved. Consequently, the proposed system could automatically and consistently generate the proper cutting conditions (feed, depth of cut, and cutting speed) as soon as relatively simple data input is given thanks to the classified GT database.

Kim, Jong-Hwa ; Cha, Sang-Soo ;
IE interfaces, volume 15, issue 3, 2002, Pages 316~324
Automated Guided Vehicles are widely used as an essential material handling system for FMS to provide flexibility and efficiency. We suggest a new dispatching rule based on priority function which considers urgency and empty vehicle travel time under finite buffer capacity. We evaluate the performance of the proposed rule by comparing the performance of Shortest Travel Time/Distance(STT/D) rule in terms of machine utilization, throughput and WIP level using simulation. The simulation results show that the suggested dispatching rule is robust and provides better machine utilization, throughput with comparable WIP level compared to STT/D rule.
