  • This study attempts to derive critical success factors and prioritize activities for implementing the automation of software test. Software testing proceeds in five steps of test plan, test case design, test scripting & test environment setup, test execution & evaluation, and test closure. From the literature, twenty influence factors in the five steps were identified. Focus Group Interviews with ten experts in software testing selected fourteen factors on the basis of importance and feasibility. Some factors were further divided to clarify their meanings and the number of influence factors finally became twenty one. A survey on the influence factors was conducted with 75 IT professionals. An importance-feasibility analysis was applied to the survey responses and classified the influence factors into four groups of essential factors, critical factors, low priority factors, and minimal factors. Essential factors include objectives for test automation, strategies for test automation, test automation training, test automation education, setting up test automation environment, setting up test environment, test automation tool selection. Critical factors include management's continued support, management's continued interest, role of automation engineers, and skills of automation engineers. This result suggests that a lot of efforts should be put into SW test plan for the successful SW test automation and SW automation should proceed in consideration with the priorities and resource consumption.

  • The paper provides a methodology to obtain the automaticity indicator of a factory and the sequence of enabling technologies of factory automation. The automaticity indicator is the measure of the current automation status of a factory and can be used as a crucial criteria for the future automation schedule and investment. Although most industries have their own computation methods which usually consider the number of workers in the shop floor, this research covers five evaluation items of automation, such as, production facility, material transfer system, inspection and test system, information system, and flexibility. The detailed evaluation models are developed for each item. Automation sequencing prioritizes the enabling technologies of factory automation on the basis of several criteria which consist of two phases. The first phase includes the automation indicator and the second phase includes six sub-criteria such as production rate, quality, number of workers, capital investment, development duration, development difficulty. For this evaluation, AHP(Analytical Hierarchy Process) is introduced to prevent the decision maker's subject intention. As results of the automaticity indicator and automation sequence, the manager can save time and cost in building constructive and transparent automation plans.

  • This paper presents active management of feeder automation systems using active database. DAS(Distribution Automation System) has been managed for feeder automation in passive manner. Therefore, feeder automation system has to be managed by operator when feeder overloadings is detected. It may be possible for propagating the feeder overloadings area by operator's mistake. To overcome this defect, the author proposed the feeder automation technique with active manner to obtain feasible feeder reconfiguration. Active database can manage feeder automation system by data driven monitoring of events and by corresponding actions without operator's intervening. To manage feeder automation system with active manner, production rule, active rule manager are designed. And active database system architecture for feeder automation system is proposed. Test results on the KEPCO's 108 bus distribution system show that the performance is efficient and robust.

  • This study examines a data-driven approach for software test automation at an online shopping site. Online shopping sites typically change prices dynamically, offer various discounts or coupons, and provide diverse delivery and payment options such as electronic fund transfer, credit cards, mobile payments (KakaoPay, NaverPay, SyrupPay, ApplePay, SamsungPay, etc.) and so on. As a result, they have to test numerous combinations of possible customer choices continuously and repetitively. The total number of test cases is almost 584 billion. This requires somehow automation of tests in settling payments. However, the record playback approach has difficulties in maintaining automation scripts due to frequent changes and complicated component identification. In contrast, the data-driven approach minimizes changes in scripts and component identification. This study shows that the data-driven approach to test automation is more effective than the traditional record playback method. In 2014 before the test automation, the monthly average defects were 5.6 during the test and 12.5 during operation. In 2015 after the test automation, the monthly average defects were 9.4 during the test and 2.8 during operation. The comparison of live defects and detected errors during the test shows statistically significant differences before and after introducing the test automation using the data-driven approach.

  • The purpose of this study was to examine: 1) the differences in the automation level by company characteristics(i.e., product category, product type, firm size); 2) the effects of company context(i.e., environmental uncertainty, task uncertainty) on the automation level; and 3) the effect of the automation level on manufacturing performance(i.e., quality, flexibility, time, cost). Data were collected from a mail survey. Four hundred eighty two questionaries were mailed to apparel manufacturers nationwide, and 60 responses were analyzed. The results revealed that: 1) mens and womens wear manufacturers and large manufacturers(i.e., the number of employees, sales volume) showed higher automation level; 2) environmental complexity positively affected the automation level; and 3) the automation level had a positive effect only on quality performance.

  • This paper consists of three chapters. Changes and objectives of library automation are discussed in chapter 1 and 2 respectively. The dominant trends in library automation which begun in 1960's can be described ; the 1960's was dominated by primitive local systems and the 1970's by online networks. And in the 1980's, there is a return to local system but with various options to networks. The major objectives of library automation are to improve speed of technical process, to get economic efficiency, and to provide better services. But the library planning automation should take account of experiences of the others that those objectives are not easily achieved. The impact of automation on a library is discussed in chapter 3. First, emphasis of libraries shifts from a collection orientation to an access orientation. Computer allowed to access not only to materials of their own library but also to those of others. Second, libraries should reconsider all their activities and services. Those must be reorganized by several principles such as rationalization, intelligent use of automation, and maximizing of human self-fulfillment. Third, change on organizational structure is anticipated. Flat organization in stead of existing hierarchy will provide rapid communication for problem - solving and intensify professionalism. Machine with proper capabilities and well programed software are prerequisites for library automation. But beyond these prerequisites, human factor should be stressed as well as mechanical factor. Therefore, understanding of changes due to automation, aggressive acceptance of trend, and su n.0, pport of organization are required in order to get successful results.
