DOI : 10.9709/JKSS.2016.25.2.001
The floor field model (hereafter referred to as FFM) is a cellular automata (hereafter referred to as CA)-based walk model used to model pedestrian behavior. Existing studies on FFM conducted experiments with simple structures (that have one room or one obstacle in a room) or relatively complicated structures (that have many rooms). In order to apply the FFM to real buildings, it is necessary to have additional methodologies to process information about the number of rooms, floors, stairs, and exit doors. In particular, it is necessary to process exit doors during this procedure. Exit doors that are recognized by pedestrians are of many types such as exit doors in rooms, stairs connected to corridors, and exit doors in a building. When calculating the static floor field (hereafter referred to as SFF) in the FFM, information about exit doors is needed and simulation results will be different depending on how the SFF is calculated using an exit door among the above-mentioned exit doors. In this study, an XML-format building data model is proposed according to data structures required by the FFM. This study also defines a methodology to process a number of exit doors. Accordingly, this study developed a building data construction and evacuation simulator and simulation experiments were conducted with university campus building.

In times of current warfare, importance of civil military operations(CMO) is more on the rise because the military winning does not couple the political winning immediately. For this reason, CMO Model Development Program has been commenced by ROK JCS since FY 2014. As CMO is non-kinetic operations which is focused on civilians, it depends on the commander`s decision that reflects the results of the evaluation of the CMO performance level. The evaluation of CMO performance level is a very important factor of this model. So, I decided my subject a study of simulation method for evaluation of CMO Performance level. It is affected in CMO performance level by the occurrence of some event, and the achievement results of CMO for the response action on such event is evaluated by the 5 factors(administration level, security level, infrastructure level, humanitarian support level, friendship level) on the evaluation of CMO performance level. Even more it is affected in achievement of new CMO and new event by evaluation results. In this study, I provided a methodology of how apply the evaluation results and how simulate the achievement results of CMO performance with the 5 factors on the evaluation of CMO Performance level. Also this study is expected that it will be highly contributed to training and exercise in CMO branch in ROK JCS, when CMO Model Development Program is done as a new model applied such evaluation factors matching military environment in the Korean Peninsular, and applied this simulation method for evaluation of CMO Performance level.

Indoor location system has been used Wi-Fi to get a location. After the development of BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy), the interest in the method of a indoor positioning had been move on. It has more advantages than using Wi-Fi. Easy installation, low power consumption, low signal interference and changeable setting(Advertising interval, tx power, etc.). These things can improve efficiency or accuracy in a indoor positioning system. For this reason, recent indoor positioning system uses BLE rather than Wi-Fi. Accordingly, error factors of BLE beacon based indoor positioning should be studying for high accuracy of indoor positioning. In this research, set up few experiment scenarios and keep a close watch on how technological, environmental factor is affecting positioning accuracy. When a application uses largest signal strength to get the indoor location, the mean error of experimental results was decreased compare to using received signal strength in real-time. The result was same when the application applied average and standard deviation to get the indoor location. Changing advertising interval had an effect on the mean error of indoor positioning. Short advertising interval makes the lower mean error than large advertising interval.

Wireless sensor networks have been used in many applications such as marine environment, army installation, etc. The sensor data is very important, because all these applications depend on sensor data. The possibility of communication failures becomes high since the surrounding environment of a wireless sense network has an sensitive effect on its communications. In particular, communication failures in underwater communications occur more frequently because of a narrow bandwidth, slow transmission speed, noises from the surrounding environments and so on. In cases of communication failures, the sensor data can be lost in the sensor data delivery process and these kinds of sensor data losses can make critical huge physical damages on human or environments in applications such as fire surveillance systems. For this reason, although a few of studies for storing and compressing sensor data have been proposed, there are lots of difficulties in actual realization of the studies due to none-existence of the framework using network communications. In this paper, we propose a framework for reducing loss of the sensor data and analyze its performance. The our analyzed results in non-framework application show a decreasing data recovery rate, T/t, as t time passes after a network failure, where T is a time period to fill the storage with sensor data after the network failure. Moreover, all the sensor data generated after a network failure are the errors impossible to recover. But, on the other hand, the analyzed results in framework application show 100% data recovery rate with 2~6% data error rate after data recovery.

Counter Fire Operations can be characterized as having a system of systems that key features include situational awareness, command and control systems and highly responsive strike achieved by precision weapons. Current modeling methodology cannot provide an appropriate methodology for a system of systems and utilizes modeling and simulation tools to implement analytic options which can be time consuming and expensive. We explain developing methodology and tools for the effectiveness analysis of the counter fire operations under Network Centric Warfare Environment and suggest how to support a efficient decision making with the methodology and tools. Theater Counter Fire Operations tools consist of Enemy block, ISR block, C2 block and Shooter block. For the convenience of using by domain expert or non simulation expert, it is composed of the environments that each parameter and algorithm easily can be altered by user.

With high interest in the patient satisfaction of emergency medical services, there is a lot of effort into improving the process of Emergency Department(ED) utilizing the technology of Internet of Things(IoT). In this study, the core technologies of smart ED are examined and a decision support algorithm for medicine tasks is proposed. The proposed algorithm minimizes the decision risks such as task selection accountability, patient complaints, care delays and longer stay time. It can reduce the nurses burnout and improve the patient care with kindness and consideration. Ultimately, patient satisfaction, job satisfaction and professional identity of nurses can be increased. The comparative study was carried out by simulation in terms of the average length of patient stay in a simplified hypothetical ED system. In all the cases, the proposed algorithm was shown to perform substantially better than the other rule.

Kim, Yearnmin ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 25, issue 2, 2016, Pages 75~81
DOI : 10.9709/JKSS.2016.25.2.075
By using simulation, fixed location production method and flow production method have been compared to improve the productivity of deckhouse preceding outfitting process. In this paper, we analyze that the suggested flow production system instead of fixed location production can improve productivity. In current preceding outfit production system which adopts fixed location production, where a block occupies an area and does not move until the work finishes. On the other hand, in improved flow production system, the block moves instead of workers and equipment. Though the output of two systems are almost the same when we did not consider the moving time and waiting time of blocks, the flow production will be better when the variability of task time will be reduced.

Tolerances are defined as the allowable variations in the geometry and positioning of parts in a mechanical assembly for assuring its proper functionality. Tolerance analysis is the activity related to estimating the potential accumulated variation in assemblies. If the estimated variances go out of the specified ranges, it causes the quality problem. Thus, we should adjust the tolerances and this activity is called as tolerance design. In this paper, a case study on the accumulated tolerance analysis and design using Monte Carlo simulation is introduced, which is applied for developing a portable medical device. Using the simulation study, we can improve the assemblability and functionality of the product.

Mun, Cheon-Su ; Shin, Yong-Ho ;
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 25, issue 2, 2016, Pages 93~100
DOI : 10.9709/JKSS.2016.25.2.093
The purpose of this study is to investigate the impacts of individual difference toward technology and situational influences on use intention of Self-Service Technology. While the previous research related to SSTs focuses on individual tendency toward technology, little research has been done on the impact of situational influences on usage intention of SSTs. This study proposed Technology Readiness Index for measuring individual tendency toward technology and categorized situational influences into two dimensions: location convenience, employee presence. The empirical testing of the research was conducted on 20` users who have prior experience in using SSTs except for ATMs in bank. This study demonstrated that the people who are favorable emotions positively affect SSTs. Also this study confirmed that it is effective to build strategies to form favorable attitude and usage intention of knowledge of SSTs rather than method through service employees. Finally, SSTs were distributed for customers.
