    Many have researched Japan's automobile industry and its influence over its supplier system. However, very little of this research, where changes in the automobile industry and its supplier system are analyzed, is quantitative. In this paper, change in the automobile industry is quantitatively analyzed using the number of patent applications for automobile components. A ratio was calculated of the... View full abstract»

  • A novel control chart employing curtailed inspection

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):893 - 898 vol.2
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    This article presents an optimal algorithm for the design of the SX (sum of Xs) control chart. The objective is to maximize the effectiveness of the SX control chart in detecting the process mean shifts, on condition that the false alarm rate is held at a specified level. The optimal SX chart can be used in 100% inspection, and in some sampling inspections as well. The effectiveness of the SX char... View full abstract»

    Operating in a turbulent environment, the contemporary organization is realizing that its information systems are often a cause of disappointment due to their inability to respond to rapidly changing operational and strategic parameters. Arguing that the act of freezing the user requirements specification during the analysis phase is largely responsible, the raison d'etre of this paper is to stimu... View full abstract»

    We consider how Japanese suppliers cope with the supply chain existing in the USA, concentrating on the case of an electronics parts supplier, Denso, and two auto makers, Toyota and Mitsubishi. The auto makers place firm orders with the supplier on the basis of sales information provided by dealers and/or auto sales companies using EDI (electronic data interchange). In 1998, this order cycle was s... View full abstract»

    In spite of object model is importance and usefulness, object modeling is a time consuming activity and requiring an extensive experience and expertise. Sometimes, the object models for similar business areas are analogous to one another. Therefore, it is reasonable to reuse already developed object models if possible. In this study, we developed an object model reuse system by case-based reasonin... View full abstract»
