  • Funded by the Singapore National Science and Technology Board (NSTB), CAMTech is collaborating with a Singaporean research institute and two industry partners with the objective to improve electronics assembly processes. The goal of this project is to visualise the behaviour of an electronics assembly industry by simulating, visualising the discrete events of the entire manufacturing processes and observing the flow of materials, size of buffers, and line balancing. The traditional scenario - from the customer placing order for a product to delivery - goes through various phases including manufacturing the product. Several major electronics manufacturing stages can be addressed: fabrication, assembly ...

  • Manufacturing industry in Chonbuk region has experienced relatively consistent increase during period 1975-1999. The importance of labor-intensive sectors such as textiles and clothing, wood and furniture, and food and drink, which had been traditionally major sectors in this region, has declined over the same period. On the other hand, the shares of more complex sectors like automobile, chemistry, communication equipment, and other machinery have gone up. The structural change of Chonbuk manufacturing industry, with increasing diversity, follows the national trend of industrial development, based on national industrial policies. but the speed and level of the change has been slow and low in terms of the national standard of manufacturing development, especially with the weak development of high technology industry. In Chonbuk, the spatial distribution of manufacturing industry has shown a high degree of concentration. Although spatial concentration is apparent in the central area including the cities of Chonju, Iksan, and Kunsan, new tendency towards industrial decentralization within this area has been found. The tendency means manufacturing development at the fringe of this area. There is another tendency towards industrial dispersion into the cities of Kimje and Jeongup close to this central area. The spatial dispersion of manufacturing industry has been accelerated in the form of increasing external investment. But despite the tendency of the spatial dispersion, the development of manufacturing industry in the rest of the region still remains a marked inferiority.

  • Coal briquette manufacturers once served as major fuel suppliers for households. For the coal briquette industry, transportation accounts for a considerable portion of the total manufacturing cost as briquettes are heavy in weight but low in value-addition. Moreover, they were put under strict control by the government for the characteristics of the briquettes as public goods. This study intends to identify the factors of and the types of the location of coal briquette manufacturing industry. In particular, the focus of the study is the briquette manufacturers in Seoul. Moreover, this study aims to identify how government policy influenced the location of the industry. The coal briquette manufacturing industry in the example regions were oriented toward the market and trans-shipment points. Simultaneously, the industry underwent spatial changes due to the spatial policy. While derived spatial policies were significant factors for growth of coal briquette industry, explicit spatial policies only modified or facilitated some of the location features resulting from the characteristics of the industry.

  • The sectors of the Root industry include casting, plastic works, welding, surface treatment, and heat treatment. While the industry is concerned with the processing technologies that are used in most of the manufacturing industries, the sophistication of the corresponding manufacturing information systems is very low. This paper describes a manufacturing information system for the building sector for which the smartphone devices that the workers use in their daily lives are employed, and where the cost of the adaption of the manufacturing system at their factories is minimized. The proposed system consists of the following three parts: UI composer, General Application, and Gateway.

  • This study aims to analyze determinants and complementarities of the technological innovation protection mechanisms of Korean manufacturing firms. The results of the inter-industry comparison show that there are differentiations of the determinants among industries. Independence between legal and strategic protection mechanisms is found in the high technology industry, whereas complementarities exist between them in the low technology industry. It implies that the firms should take into account their endogenous and exogenous factors to choose appropriate combinations of the mechanisms when they build up their innovation protection strategies. This study expects to contribute to establishing technological innovation protection strategies in manufacturing industry.

  • This paper uses a 53-country 15-industry computable general equilibrium model of trade to analyze the effects of the Korea-China free trade agreement on the Korean economy, the manufacturing sector in particular. The model is based on Yaylaci and Shikher (2014) which uses the Eaton-Kortum methodology to explain intra-industry trade. The model predicts that the Korea-China FTA will increase Korea-China manufacturing trade by 56%, manufacturing employment in Korea by 5.7% and China by 0.55%. The model also predicts significant reallocation of employment across industries with the Food industry in Korea losing jobs and other industries there gaining jobs, with the Medical equipment industry gaining the most. There will be some trade diversion from the ASEAN countries, as well as Japan and the United States.

  • In order to promote the domestic aircraft manufacturing industry, this study analyzed the limitations of the preceding study on the WTO dispute concerning civil aircraft by summarizing the latest developments and issues in the mid-range aircraft dispute between Brazil and Canada and the large civil aircraft dispute between the United States and the EU. Based on the results of the study, we should look closely at WTO regulations and existing cases of disputes to find maximum support measures, and we believe that in order to stimulate the domestic aircraft manufacturing industry, we should refrain from publicly specifying support measures in the data, such as laws and policies, utilize the WTO SCM Agreement exceptions, and strengthen links with international cooperation and other industries.

  • SCM(Supply Chain Management) is a new approach to satisfy customers via an integrated management for the whole business processes of the manufacturing from the raw material procurement to the product or service delivery to customers. Typically the semiconductor industry is the one whose supply chain network is distributed all over the world, and its manufacturing process has the particular characteristics which has to be considered in the modeling of supply chain. In this paper we suggest the push and pull type supply chain models based on the manufacturing characteristics and their mathematical formulation for the semiconductor industry. Push supply chain model pursuits the high throughput and the balance of the WIP flow, and pull supply chain model does to minimize the total cost of order-based manufacturing, distribution and transportation process in order to meet customer's request appropriately.
