To satisfy and respond quickly to customers' demand, many companies are now aggressively focusing on supply chain management in order to strengthen their competitiveness. The modeling and analysis of supply chain environment have been widely studied. This study is concerned with the development of supply chain simulator which deals with stochastic natures existing in the supply chain environment. We proposed the mathematical model for the efficient cost analysis and developed the supply chain simulator based on the proposed mathematical model with object-oriented language C++. The simple experiment which find the best combination of policies considering the whole cost shows the possibility and reasonability of the developed simulator.
Design of an Underwater Target Simulator
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 17~24
In this paper, we propose a model that simulates the reflective waveform from underwater objects by means of Doppler effect, highlight and elongation phenomenon. Also, this paper presents a hardware Implementation of simulation model with the input and output parameters. The underwater target simulator consists of transducer, receiver, transmitter and control parts. According to the experimental results of the simulator, it carried out the performances of real target in response to transmission signal.
Application of Contract Net Protocol to the Design and Simulation of Network Security Model
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 25~40
With the growing usage of the networks, the world-wide Internet has become the main means to exchange data and carry out transactions. It has also become the main means to attack hosts. To solve the security problems which occur in the network such as Internet, we import software products of network security elements like an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and a firewall. In this paper, we have designed and constructed the general simulation environment of network security model composed of multiple IDSes and a firewall which coordinate by CNP (Contract Net Protocol) for the effective detection of the intrusion. The CNP, the methodology for efficient integration of computer systems on heterogeneous environment such as distributed systems, is essentially a collection of agents, which cooperate to resolve a problem. Command console in the CNP is a manager who controls the execution of agents or a contractee, who performs intrusion detection. In the network security model, each model of simulation environment is hierarchically designed by DEVS(Discrete Event system Specification) formalism. The purpose of this simulation is that the application of rete pattern-matching algorithm speeds up the inference cycle phases of the intrusion detection expert system and we evaluate the characteristics and performance of CNP architecture with rete pattern-matching algorithm.
Implementation of Java/RTI Level One Test Procedures
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 41~50
HLA (High Level Architecture) is the object, time, and interface standard that proposed for distribution simulation in the US Department of Defense. The HLA is defined by three components: Rules, the HLA Interface Specification, and the Object Model Template (OMT). The RTI (Run-Time Infrastructure) software implements the interface specification. It provides services to simulation applications. To test whether a RTI software is suitable for the standard and all service was implemented is performed through two phases of processes proposed by DMSO. In this paper, we implement Level One Test Procedures of DMSO and apply to NetCust's RTI software. The experimental results are discussed.

Real-Time applications on Grid environment have several problems in terms of resource management addressed as follows; (1) dynamic resource allocation to provide QoS objectives, (2) heterogeneous resources that is different scale, or capacity in same unit, and (3) resource availability, and resource needs. This paper describes the techniques of resource manager (RM) handling above problems to support QoS of dynamic real-time applications on Grid. The contributions of this paper to solve problems are as follows: unification of dynamic resource requirements among heterogeneous hosts, control of resources in heterogeneous environments, and dynamic load balancing/sharing. Our heuristic allocation scheme works not only 257% better than random, 142% better than round robin, and 36.4% better than least load in QoS sensitivity, but also 38.6% better than random, 28.5% better than round robin, and 31.6% better than least load in QoS.
Study on the Validity of Inventory Sharing System for the Strategic Cooperation of Outsourcing Companies
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 61~71
Recently, a matter of the highest priority that the company must do for the satisfaction of customer service is that the company ensure the competitive power throughout the strategic cooperation in the market environment changing rapidly In this situation, one of allied strategies is the supply chain management and the outsourcing is one of the supply chain management strategies. In this paper, the inventory sharing system is introduced as the method to solve two inconsistency problem such as inventory and customer service. This paper also suggests how to increase customer service and to decrease inventory throughout construction of the inventory sharing system among outsourcing companies. For this, we experimented the effect of the inventory sharing system on the supply chain dynamics by using the simulation modeling and analyzed the validity about construction of the inventory sharing system presented in this study. The simulation is designed by Vensim(Process simulation package) and has some feedback loops.
A Study of Guarantee Technique Using Buffer Node in Ad Hoc Network
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 73~81
An Ad Hoc network is a dynamic multi-hop wireless network that is established by a group of mobile hosts on a shared wireless channel by virtue of their proximity to each other. Since wireless transmissions are locally broadcast in the region of the transmitting host, hosts that are in close proximity can hear each other and are said to be neighbors. The transitive closure of the neighborhood of all the hosts in the set of mobile hosts under consideration forms an Ad Hoc network. Thus, each host is potentially a router and it is possible to dynamically establish routes by chaining together a sequence of neighboring hosts from a source to a destination in the Ad Hoc network. In a network, various real-time services require the network to guarantee the Quality of Services provided to the receiver. End-to-end QoS can be provided most efficiently when each layer of the protocol stack translates the requirements of the application into layer classified requirements and satisfies them. In this study, a mechanism to guarantee the QoS in Ad Hoc networks with buffer nodes is proposed. They effectively prevent traffic congestion and yield better transmission rate. In this way QoS is enhanced.
Enhancing the Performance of Call Center using Simulation
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 83~94
Managing a call center is a complex and diverse challenge. Call center becomes a very important contact point and a data ware house for successful CRM. Improving performance of call center is critical and valuable for providing better service. In this study we applied forecasting technique to estimate incoming calls and ProModel based simulation model to enhance performance of a mobile telecommunication company's call center. The simulation study shows reduction in managing cost and better customer's satisfaction.
Simulation Study on the Stream Server for Deciding the Priority for Using Resources
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 95~102
Stream servers are for supplying multimedia stream data to users through the internet such as movies and music without discontinuation. A typical stream server is designed roughly by considering the characteristics of stream services and by employing processors, memory, PCI bus, Ethernet, TOE and disks. This study focuses on deciding the priority for using resources such as PCI bus, buffer memory and TOE buffer, which have limited capacities in a typical stream server. When the priorities for using limited resources are not given properly, the stream servers may not even function as originally designed. The simulation study shows that the top priority for using PCI bus for normal streaming services should be given to the operation that sends data from buffer memory to TOE buffer. Giving priority for using PCI bus to other operation such as sending data from disks to memory results in a deadlock phenomenon.
Workload Distribution and Performance Analysis Simulation for a Distributed Server Cluster System
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 12, issue 4, 2003, Pages 103~111
A distributed sewer cluster system is a cost-effective system to provide a service application for clients with reliable, scalable, available, and fault-tolerant features. In order to provide high quality services, it is necessary to evaluate service performances, tune the server system, and analyze performances. In this paper, we propose a simulator to generate workloads based on statistic configuration according to estimated application traffics, apply workload scheduling algorithms, and evaluate the simulation results. We introduce the simulator design modelling and architecture. By using flexible parameters, the simulator is able to generate various patterns of workloads with different statistics, and configure system environments such as the number of server nodes, system resources considered, and their capacities. With this simulator, we introduce two scenarios: one is to find appropriate thresholds for the best performance of cluster system, and the other is to find the suitable scheduling algorithm for workload characteristics of service applications.
