  • India has accorded a high priority to road infrastructure development through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) and it has set a high target for investment inflows. Yet, it is widely held that road/highway infrastructure has not been developing at required pace and that the road infrastructure projects under PPP have been suffering from several hurdles and delays, thereby affecting project success/failure. This paper is an attempt to analyze the critical success/failure factors of road infrastructure projects under PPP in India. A questionnaire survey was conducted among a sample of the stakeholders of road infrastructure projects to identify the critical success/failure factors during all four major project stages using different approaches. Initially, the critical factors were identified through ranking based on the average/mean score. Later, the conventional RII score was used to identify the critical success/failure factors. Finally, the critical success/failure factors were also identified based on the stakeholder-wise ranking of the factors and their convergence. The assessment revealed that there was a greater convergence across the different methods and also that there was greater consensus among project stakeholder on the critical success/failure factors of road PPP projects.

  • Steel roof construction is on the most important and critical factors in the large spatial construction and necessary to be prepared under a radical planning. Therefore, the major management factors of steel roofing structure assembly must be critically reviewed during planning. Through the review process, it is necessary to reduce the construction cost, to prevent delays in the construction schedule, and to minimize construction errors. However, domestically due to the lack experience in large spatial constructions, a planning of roof construction is limited to have a radical planning. Especially due to unclear organization of the management factors in hierarchy, using them in reality for construction planning is difficult and reliability is low. Therefore, in this study, the goal is to conduct the major management factors in the large spatial construction. To achieve this, we have reviewed and analyzed the numbers of construction plans and construction reports and conducted a total 68 of the management factors. Based on the conducted factors, we have interviewed 16 experts with experience in large spatial construction. From the interview result, we have deduced the factors scored above 4.20 of 10 for critical factors. The results of this study will be used as a guidance for planning steel roofing structure assembly in large spatial construction. The critical factors will be provided to the site mangers for the quality management of large spatial constructions in practice.

  • The purpose of the current study is to identify the critical success factors of information systems in small-and-medium-sized firms in general, and also to investigate any differences of those critical success factors between two different industries: the electronic and textile industries. To accomplish this purpose, we collected and analyzed 115 and 108 questionnaires from the electronic and textile industries respectively. From the results of statistical analysis, critical success factors of small-and-medium-sized companies in general were obtained, and critical success factors from two industries were compared and the differences were able to be identified. The results of the analysis of the questionnaires are as follows: 1) The organizational characteristics of the electronic industry showed some differences from those of the textile industry; 2) Small-and-medium-sized companies in the electronic industry appeared to have some differences from companies in the textile industry in terms of critical success factors of information systems. Such factors as education and training, quality level of software, capability of users, business processes, standardization of data management, level of organization, user involvement, support of top management were significantly different between two industries.

  • This study was conducted to identify the differences in service quality between Incheon and Kimpo international airports and critical factors influencing satisfaction of their customers. According to the results of the study, all service quality factors of Incheon international airport except the service factor of geographical location were better than those of Kimpo international airport. However, all service quality factors of the two airports were evaluated inferior to those of American, western European and Japanese international airports. In addition the service quality factors such as response, safety, airport facility and geographical location were found as critical factors influencing satisfaction of the airport customers. The service quality factor of geographical location of Incheon international airport was measured much inferior comparing with other service quality factors. Thus, the results of this study suggest that the Korean government deliberate and benchmark the international airports of western Europe and the USA in determining the geographical location when planning new international airports.

  • Today, many organizations are reengineering themselves to develop new ways to thrive in a foreign and unforgiving business environment. However, it is reported that many companies involved in the project of business process reengineering are dissatisfied with their results. Therefore, we developed an exploratory framework based on three constructs such as critical success factors, organizational maturity level, and performance and applied these to help analyze current practice in business process reengineering. To proceed with our research, this paper was organized around two research questions in business process reengineering. We addressed: (1) To what extent does certain critical success factors correlate with performance? and (2) How does the relationships between critical success factors and performance differ by organizational maturity level? From the research results, we could find relationships between critical success factors(i.e., project management, change management, objective management) and performance, and could verify differences in performance of organizations grouped by organizational maturity level.

  • Critical success factors (CSFs) have been replicated and applied in a wide variety of settings for more than two decades. Most previous research on CSF have focused on identifying critical factors, based on the variance theory, in terms of the correlation between individual factor and Information system (IS) success. However, it is unknown how a set of critical factors Influence each other and lead to IS success, which means the process of IS implementation. in this research, we aim to understand how a set of critical factors influence each other and lead to IS success in the context of IS implementation for Customer Relationship Management based on the process theory. This research has implications In explaining a mechanism leading to CRM systems success based on the influencial relationships among the critical factors.
