  • The railway industry is constrained by barriers within itself, which prevent it from competing effectively with other means of transportation, particularly road transportation. Therefore, many countries have adopted the policies that aim to remove barriers to providing international transport services by creating a common framework for railway industry. Recently, the European Union has produced the European Interoperability Directives, which aim to remove the technical problems involved in running trains between member states. In this respect, it is important to harmonize the technical requirements and specifications of Korea railway industry. This paper presents an action plan for the advancement of railway technical specifications in Korea. For this, the railway law and regulations of other countries are reviewed. Also the technical problems and operational barriers of railway industry are analyzed in Korea. This will help transportation agencies to resolve the technical problems of criteria in Korea railway industry.

  • In this paper, we investigate the development process of the quality assurance system ISO9001 in the railway industry and ISO/TS 16949 the quality system in the automotive industry. We study the international standard IRIS(International Railway Industry Standard) & TSI(Technical Specification for Interoperability) applied in railway industry. Throughout studying for the whole development process of the Rolling Stock Quality System, we are to review the necessity of the monitoring process and assesment process applied in IRIS & TSI guidelines. It will be the keystone enhancing our quality level to global level in railway industry.

  • Since human errors are being recognized as one of the primary issues in railway safety, there is a definite need for human error analysis techniques that can identify the types of errors and their causes and derive effective countermeasures to help reduce their future probability. But, for some reasons, there are not yet systematic procedures or techniques for analyzing human errors in the Korean railway industry. This paper introduces several techniques that have been developed and utilized for analyzing human errors in Korean and overseas nuclear power aviation railway, offshore oil industry, etc., and summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of each technique. Based on the Investigation of the techniques, the paper also discusses the implications for the development of a human error analysis system for the Korean railway industry.

  • Korean railway Industry has not accumulated its technical system in the field of railway industry in despits of its centennial history, and its is subordinating to the other industries and railroad technique of developed countries. Therefore, Korean railway Industry should set up its technical basis, by setting up its technical system and knowledge on railroad. Korean railway Industry should made closed cooperation relationship of the industrial world, the academic world, research institutions and government containning long-term transportation and related technical policies with development plans of research institutions to enhence and improve railroad technique, so that it should escape from technical subordination of developed countries by reflection of the results.

  • Recently, Korean government demands that public sectors like railway construction should improve their management efficiency. It is necessary for railway construction supported by government budget to aim at the companywide management efficiency. The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) is known as integrated performance management framework that helps a company to translate strategic objective info relevant performance within an organization. This paper focuses on relationship between KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) used to measure the performance of railway construction industry and process KPT for BPM (Business Process Management). Also, the vision and strategies of the railway construction is introduced, and the CSFs (Critical Success Factors) and the KPI based on BSC is developed. Finally, this paper explores that there is a possibility to fulfill the strategic objectives of railway construction industry through the connectivity between KPI based on BSC and process KPI based on BPM. We explain the detailed procedures with an example of railway construction industry.

  • Studied was a strategy of technology development for railway system in terms of railway network. First, The successful launch of the Korean HST system has not only decreased logistics burden but also significantly transformed the Korean trunk-line railway network, revolutionizing the logistics and technology sectors and reinvigorating the Korean railway industry in one century. Korean railway industry sector is now investing to develop many different types of railway system(G7, Post G7, tilting train...) so that these kinds of various railway system development should be integrated with the National Inter-modal Transportation Network Plan. To secure sufficient capacity that is required by the National Railroad Plan, the railway industry needs to establish mid- and long-term train purchase and operation strategies in compliance with railway construction and operation policies. During a railway construction planning, train operators, based on their train operation strategies, should come up with measures to closely cooperate with project operators from the planning stage through to the opening of a railway system. To be more precise, train operators should establish long-term train procurement plans reflecting both long-term national railroad network plans and plans for each railway line in order to suggest appropriate roles and schedules for each line. Also, based on the long-term railway plan, directions should be decided concerning the research and development of trains in advance.

  • Greenhouse gas and energy reduction goal management system is announced to reduce national CO2 emission in 2011. The target business sector of the system has to follow the procedure of the system and get the assessment. The percentage of the national CO2 reduction goad is 30 % compared to the amounts of BAU. In railway business sector, 6 bodies are included in this system so that railway industry cannot stay and sustain its better position any more than other transportation industry. Most of the industry except Railway industry is struggling to develop its product more environmentally friendly and get the 3rd party certification like Eco-labelling and Carbon footprint. To get environmental certification, LCA method has to be applied because life cycle approach is needed to respond current environmental requirement. The purpose of this project is to facilitate railway vehicle manufacturer obtaining the environmental certification termed Korea EPD. By doing so, the environmental performance evaluation tool would be developed and modelled within the LCA framework and therefore applied especially for rail vehicle.

  • The inter-industrial inducement effects of the korean railway services on the output, value-added, imports of the 403 industrial sectors of the korean economy have been computed by the input-output analysis technique utilizing the 2003 Input-Output Tables, which was published most recently in April 2007 by the Bank of Korea. The korean railway service industry produced \2,766 billion worth of passenger and freight railroad services in the 2003 year, and it has induced \1,701 billion worth of output, \781 billion worth of value-added, and \580 billion worth of imports of the korean industry as a whole. The energy sector industries such as diesel fuel, thermal power generation, nuclear power generation, crude oil, liquid natural gas, bituminous coal, liquid propane gas have been most affected by the korean railway services. Other industries mainly affected by the korean railway services include railroad car manufacturing, cleaning and decontamination, medical and health service, machinery equipment and rental, construction and maintenance, transportation related services, business R&D, property insurance, and telecommunication.
