Multiple Ant Colony System (MACS) for the Dynamic Sectorization in Microcellular System
Kim, Sung-Soo ; Hong, Soon-Jung ; Ahn, Seung-Bum ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 1~8
The mobile communication network has to offer good quality of services (QoS), high capacity, and more coverage at a lower cost. However, with the increase of cellular user, the shortage of capacity due to unbalanced call distribution and lack of QoS are common. This paper deals with dynamic sectorization for efficient resource management to solve load unbalancing among microcells in CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) microcellular system. Dynamic load balancing can be effected by grouping micro-cells properly and grouping can be developed through a routing mechanism. Therefore, we use ants and their routes to choose the optimum grouping of micro-cells into sectors using Multiple Ant Colony System (MACS)in this paper.

IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 9~18
In this paper, we explore the ubiquitous system that provides new business opportunities in the context of digital convergence. Exploiting the value network of the proposed ubiquitous system, we analyze strategic market drivers that define the speed and direction of the evolution path for ubiquitous industries. Motivated by the dynamic growth of ubiquitous industry, we design a set of ubiquitous business models that pave the way for firms to identify profitable business cases. In addition, we analyze the evolution path of the proposed business model such that the model can be implemented in the life-cycle of ubiquitous industry. Futhermore, we develop a modeling framework for selecting a suitable business model and for evaluating the performance of the selected business model.

IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 19~25
In the development process, the objective of a reliability growth program is to track the increase in system reliability, and determine as early as possible whether or not the system reliability is growing at a sufficient rate to meet the required goal and allocate available resources accordingly. Implementation of this kind of program will provide very useful information on concept selection, product/process reliability, and cost effectiveness without too much time, money and engineering effort being spent on the development of failure suspect parts. The purpose of this research is to present a practical method for efficiently monitoring a reliability growth test process using AMSAA(Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity) reliability growth model. The presented growth management is a viable method for identifying failure modes, incorporating design changes and monitoring reliability progress on an on-going basis during the early stages of a product development program.

Many Firms consider the application of a cross-docking system to reduce inventory and lead-time. However, most studies mainly concentrate on the design of a cross-docking system. This study presents the method that selects the cross-docking center under the existing logistics network. Describing the operation environment to apply the cross-docking system, the selection criteria of the cross-docking center, and the main constraints of transportation planning under the environment of multi-level logistics network, we define the selection problem of the cross-docking center applied to a logistics field. We also define the simulation model that can analyze variously the cross-docking volume and develop the selection methodology of the cross-docking center. The simulation model presents the algorithm and influence factors of the cross-docking system, the decision criteria of the system, policy parameter, and input data. In addition, this study analyzes the effect of increasing the number of simultaneous receiving and shipping docks, and the efficiency of the overnight transportation and cross-docking by evaluating each scenario after simulating the scenarios with the practical data of the logistics field.
Development of Hierarchical Production Planning and Control System for Mixed-Model Assembly Manufacture-an Application in Refrigerator Factory
Shin, Hyun-Joon ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 34~42
This paper presents a scheme for a hierarchical production scheduling and control system for a refrigerator factory with mixed model assembly lines. The setting of the factory is as follows. There are three mixed-model assembly lines called main line A, B and C and two batch lines that supply parts to the main lines. For each of the main lines, three work-centers are dedicated to them. The sub-lines and work-centers produce parts in batch type. An incoming production order from the master planner is characterized by its product type, amount, and due date. Under this situation, the proposed scheme has several features to schedule and control the above mentioned factory; 1) select the starting time and the place (assembly line) for an order processing, 2) devise a way to control orders to be processed as scheduled, and 3) reschedule orders when something unexpected happen. Finally, this paper provides a case study where the proposed scheme is applied to.

IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 43~52
In order to make best use of NC machine tools with minimal labor costs, they need to be in operation 24 hours a day without being attended by human operators except for setup and tool changes. Thus, unattended machining is becoming a dream of every modern machine shop. However, without a proper mechanism for real-time monitoring of the machining processes, unattended machine could lead to a disaster. Investigated in this paper are ways to using PC camera as a real-time monitoring system for unattended NC milling operations. This study defined five machining states READY, NORMAL MACHINING, ABNORMAL MACHINING, COLLISION and END-OF-MACHINING and modeled them with DEVS (discrete event system) formalism. An image change detection algorithm has been developed to detect the table movements and a flame and smoke detection algorithm to detect unstable cutting process. Spindle on/off and cutting status could be successfully detected from the sound signals. Initial experimentation shows that the PC camera could be used as a reliable monitoring system for unattended NC machining.
Collaborative Agent Based Supply Chain Planning for Functional Product Markets
Jung, Ho-Sang ; Jeong, Bong-Ju ; Lee, Chi-Guhn ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 53~61
We propose a new supply chain planning methodology for both a manufacturer and a distributor in order to find a global supply chain plan for functional product markets. Functional products as opposed to innovative products include the staples that people buy regularly from their nearby places to satisfy basic needs. In the functional product market, the distributor has an initiative of supply chain control and planning with a freedom to request any profit maximizing order quantities until the manufacturer refuses, whereas the manufacturer may not provide more than requested. In this paper, two independent agents on behalf of the manufacturer and the distributor are introduced, and supply chain planning can be conducted by collaboration between them. In addition, mathematical models and a numerical example are presented to show the possibility of the proposed methodology.
A Study on Systematic Certification Methodology for Application Service Provider
Seo, Kwang-Kyu ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 62~69
In these days companies are rapidly implementing the extended enterprise collaboration to provide enhanced management services and products based on the enterprise integration that human resources, technologies and the management process. In this corporate environment, ASP (Application Service Provider) which is the developed type of outsourcing in the area of information technology, is a good alternative for corporate information system management. ASP defines as a software leasing service which is supplied through networks instead of purchasing application software with high price. For successful implementation of ASP, it is necessary to develop the certification methodology to ensure safety and reliability of ASP. The paper provides the safe and reliable certification methodology for ASP. In order to develop it, the critical issues related to service quality and certification of ASP are identified and the systematic certification methodology of application and service provider(service environment) domains of ASP are provided. A evaluation method for the developed certification methodology is also proposed.
Performance Improvement of a Collaborative Recommendation System using Feature Selection
Yoo, Sang-Jong ; Kwon, Young- S. ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 70~77
One of the problems in developing a collaborative recommendation system is the scalability. To alleviate the scalability problem efficiently, enhancing the performance of the recommendation system, we propose a new recommendation system using feature selection. In our experiments, the proposed system using about a third of all features shows the comparable performances when compared with using all features in light of precision, recall and number of computations, as the number of users and products increases.

IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 78~85
A centralized inventory system provides a number of stores with cost reduction, information sharing. In this paper, transportation costs are included in the inventory model. To build centralized warehouses, two things should be considered: how many warehouses are required and where these are located. The objective of this paper is to develop efficient heuristics to determine the location and the number of central warehouses by minimizing total costs. Throughout some computational experiments, the results of the heuristics are compared with an optimal solution.
Customer Classification Method for Household Appliances Industries with a Large Number of Incomplete Data
Chang, Young-Soon ; Seo, Jong-Hyen ;
IE interfaces, volume 19, issue 1, 2006, Pages 86~96
Some customer data of manufacturing industries have a large number of incomplete data set due to the customer's infrequent purchasing behavior and the limitation of customer profile data gathered from sales representatives. So that, most sophisticated data analysis methods may not be applied directly. This paper proposes a heuristic data analysis method to classify customers in household appliances industries. The proposed PD (percent of difference) method can be used for the discriminant analysis of incomplete customer data with simple mathematical calculations. The method is composed of variable distribution estimation step, PD measure and cluster score evaluation steps, variable impact construction step, and segment assignment step. A real example is also presented.
