A Simulation Design for Multi Indenture Multi Echelon Systems with Lateral Transshipments
Chung, Il-Han ; Yun, Won-Young ;
IE interfaces, volume 21, issue 4, 2008, Pages 354~364
This paper deals with a design problem of simulation for MIME (multi indenture and multi echelon) with lateral transshipment. Especially, we consider lateral transshipments in case that (S-1, S) ordering policy is used in multi echelon repair system. Some rules for ordering spare parts in lateral transshipments between the lowest-level units are studied and are implemented by an activity diagram in object-oriented method. By numerical examples, we compare regular (S-1, S) ordering policy and (S-1, S) policy with lateral transshipment.
Conceptual Design of a Hazard Evaluation Process for Constructing the Korean Hazard Information System : Focused on Flood Hazard
Jeong, Keun-Chae ;
IE interfaces, volume 21, issue 4, 2008, Pages 365~377
In this paper, for constructing the Korean Hazard Information System (KHIS), we conceptually design a hazard evaluation process. We first deal with a hazard evaluation process focused on flood hazard to give the most immense damage and loss. The hazard evaluation process is consist of a damage evaluation process and a loss evaluation process, and is used for transforming hazards from natural disasters into economic measures. The proposed process is developed based on the famous FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency)'s
methodology. We modify the FEMA's process to be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive, that is all losses from the hazards are included into the estimation process but the losses are not duplicated in the process. In addition to this, we define the loss process specifically by considering the characteristics from the hazard environments of Korea. We can expect that KHIS for evaluating economic losses from natural hazards can be developed based on the conceptual design for the economic loss evaluation process, and KHIS can be used as a useful tool for analyzing the feasibilities of mitigation plans in central/local governments.

Small sized companies have not been successful in systematically applying statistical process control because of insufficient human resources. In this paper we present a case study of automatic checking system for a small sized company which produces various types of gears. A systematic way of automatically measuring gears is proposed and statistical analysis methods are presented. To reduce variation in the measurement data, a standard operating procedure is also proposed. This case study can be helpful to quality assurance practitioners of small sized companies who are willing to develop checking or inspection systems for their products.

Corporate's survival or bankruptcy has been determined by interaction of macroeconomic environment, industrial dynamic environment and internal process of corporate. This study attempts to examine financial factors' differences that have influence on corporate's survival or bankruptcy before and after foreign exchange crisis in Korea. The first previous empirical study that researched the cause of corporate's survival or bankruptcy in the financial ratios was attempted by Altman in 1968. Recently various survival analysis models have been published. In this paper, Multiple Discriminant Analysis model is used. We divide analytical periods into before and after foreign exchange crisis and sample randomly survival or bankruptcy firms for each period. Independent variables are financial ratios which represent growth, profitability, activity, liquidity and productivity. In conclusion, this paper examines hypothesis as "There are differences of significant financial factors before and after foreign exchange crisis."

The objective of this paper is to design segmentation algorithm for applying the breast ultrasound image to CAD(Computer Aided Diagnosis). This study is conducted after understanding limits, used algorithm and demands of CAD system by interviewing with a medical doctor and analyzing related works based on a general CAD framework that is consisted of five step-establishment of plan, analysis of needs, design, implementation and test & maintenance. Detection function of CAD is accomplished by Canny algorithm and arithmetic operations for segmentation. In addition to, long computing time is solved by extracting ROI (Region Of Interests) and applying segmentation technical methods based morphology algorithm. Overall course of study is conducted by verification of medical doctor. And validity and verification are satisfied by medical doctor's confirmation. Moreover, manual segmentation of related works, restrictions on the number of tumor and dependency of image resolution etc. was solved. This study is utilized as a support system aided doctors' subjective diagnosis even though a lot of future studies is needed for entire application of CAD system.

An impeller is a type of high-speed rotor that is used to compress or transfer fluid under high-speed and pressure at high temperatures. The impeller is composed of an axial hub and several blades attached along the hub. The weight and shape of an impeller must be balanced, because their imbalances can cause noise and vibration, which can lead to the breakage of the impeller blades during operation. Thus, the hub and blades of an impeller are commonly machined in a 5-axis NC machine to obtain qualified surfaces. The impeller machining strategy or process plan can not be easily obtained due to the complex, overlapped and twisted shapes of impeller blades. Skillful machining process planners may generate appropriate machining strategies based on their experiences and floor data. However, in practice most shop floor data for the impeller machining is not well-structured such that it does not effectively provide a process planner with information for machining strategies and/or process plans. This paper reports the development of a case-based machining strategy support system (CBMS) that employs case-based reasoning to obtain the machining strategy of an impeller by using the existing machining strategies of the shop floor. The CBMS generates impeller machining strategies through a stepwise reasoning process considering the similarity features between the blade shapes and machining regions. A case study is provided to demonstrate that CBMS can generate useful machining strategies facilitating process planners. The developed system can simulate the tool paths of impeller machining and runs on the web.
A Decision of the Production Control Policy using Simulation in Zinc Manufacturing Process

IE interfaces, volume 21, issue 4, 2008, Pages 418~434
This paper studied issues in decision making on the production control policy of a cathode plate manufacturing process in zinc refining plant. The present production system has a long lead time from raw materials (aluminum plate) to products (cathode plate) due to many WIP inventories. Because WIP inventories are stocked at each process and moved from one place to another frequently, they are the main cause of inefficiency in the process. In this paper, to solve this problem, several production control policies have been identified and studied. Several simulation models are used to compare the performances of these production control policies. The output lead time and WIP (Work In Process) of real production system are compared with those of simulation models. PUSH, CONWIP, DBR, KANBAN and CONWIP-DBR models have been used to simulate and review the optimized production control policy that achieves the target output quantities with decreased lead time and WIP. The simulation results of each production control policy show that CONWIP and CONWIP-DBR models are the good production control policy under the present production system. Especially in present production system, CONWIP with one parameter is easier control policy than CONWIP-DBR with two parameters. Therefore CONWIP has been selected as the best optimum production control policy. With CONWIP, lead time has been reduced by 97% (from 6,653 to 187 minute) and WIP has been reduced from 1,488 to 53, compared to the present system.

RFID (Radio Frequence Identification) is emerging technology and it is used for many fields. The research about RFID has been focused on hardware such as increasing hitting ratio. But recently the research about how and where RFID can apply is going on. Especially people are doing research about connecting RFID with existing information system. In this paper, when BPM manage RFID based manufacturing operation process, we show components which is needed and how we can obtain the components. And we apply this to straw manufacturing process on experiment. The claim-handling process and order-handling process which need improvement in straw manufacturing are chosen and we improve those processes. For executing the improved process, we define components which are database, data acquisition workflow and real-time event processing system and then we make prototype system.

In the present manufacturing environment, the appropriate decision making strategy has a significance and it should count on the fast-changing demand of customers. This research derives the optimal levels of the decision variables affecting the inventory related performance in multi-stage supply chain by using simulation and genetic algorithm. Simulation model helps analyze the customer service level of the supply chain computationally and the genetic algorithm searches the optimal solutions by interaction with the simulation model. Our experiments show that the integration approach of the genetic algorithm with a simulation model is effective in finding the solutions that achieve predefined target service levels.
