  • Technology standards have gained importance as global market becomes more competitive. Since a technology acknowledged as a standard brings significant benefits to the developer firm, firms in the IT industry tend to pursue standardization for the technology, being it proprietary or open. However, the paths or strategic implications are seldom discussed in academia. Therefore, our study uses iPhone of Apple, one of the proprietary standards successes, to further understand corporate strategies over two standard choices. Our case study suggests that iPhone's entry timing was optimal for creating a new mobile environment. Design excellence and user-friendly interface increased networking effects and switching costs among consumers. Apple developed independent mobile operating system (iOS) through improvement on the existing operating system. During the process, Apple chose proprietary standard and, by installing the same UX on its sibling products such as iPod Touch or iPad, overcame the subsequent problems that might arise from the limited use of iOS. Based on the capability of concurrently developing both hardware and software, Apple connected operating system, machine, and contents, which deems to contribute to its proprietary standards success. We argue that this strategy should be considered for firms which plan proprietary standard strategy.

  • Due to the improvement of PC performance and windows-based OS, PC-based control system is gradually taking over industrial control in the industry site, replacing the closed proprietary syste. PC-based system gives the avantages of ease-of-use, cost-effectiveness, simplicity of maintenace and the flexibility to design I/O system using standard technology. While there are many real time software soltions, most of hardware solutions are closed, vendor-depednent, proprietary systems for large scale plants. In this paper, we suggest the method to configure PC-based I/O system based on standard technology which gives the avantages to use off-the-shelf products for system integration.

  • In this paper, an effort has been made to design a Real-time Ship Management System where the status of a ship and its surrounding are constantly monitored and recorded at the base station. Proprietary system message based on overhead and checksum encapsulation has been designed to facilitate the communication. Software encoder and decoder are developed independently for each communication device attached to the system to process the proprietary system message into format by device standard. In addition, few configurations are designed to determine the method of updating the ship status message to the base station, which could be remotely chosen by the administrator.

  • The rises of the life index quality together with the medical technology improvement lead to a longer life expectancy. Then a better health care program, especially for elderly, is needed. The common health problems facing those senior citizens are changed from acute diseases to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension. Then u-Health takes center stage in medical industry. Although u- Health medical device manufacturers have been improving their instruments, these instruments still rely on proprietary technologies without fixed platform. Even if the interface has been provided by the manufacturer, there is no widely-accepted uniform data model to access data of various u-Health devices. IEEE 11073 is a standard attempting to unify the interfaces of all medical devices. In this paper we have proposed a conversion software platform that assures interoperability among medical devices for ubiquitous sensor network. This module uses in order to develop a standard platform of medical system.

  • The international SPICE (Software Process Improvement and Capability determination) Project ISO/IEC 15504(SPICE : Software Process Improvement and Capability determination) is an emerging International Standard on SPA(Software Process Assessment). A prime motivation for developing this standard has been the perceived need for an internationally recognized software process assessment framework that pulls together the existing public and proprietary models and methods. A SPICE assessment can be considered as one of representative SPA model since assessors assign ratings to indicators and metrics to measure the capability of software process. But this models doesn't provide a systematic measurement procedures and dynamic method for SPI(Software Process Improvement). Through the evaluation of SPICE is capable of providing a substantiated basis for using the notion of capability, as well as providing information for nacessary improvements to the standard using 6sigma process. As a result, this paper propose a measurement procedure and guidelines for application of 6sigma process to guarantee the reliability in SPI and suggest the structure to support SPI on overall organization.

  • The network-wide performance management is crucial for maintaining the quality of network services, which requires the collection and monitoring the performance data at individual network nodes. Most of the public networks, however, are composed of diverse, heterogeneous network nodes that are managed by various types of proprietary management systems with a conventional operator console and embedded management functions, which makes it difficult to implement the integrated performance management systems. Even though the developments of TMN (Telecommunication Management Network) based management systems are being attempted, the little work has been done in performance management area. In this paper, we propose the performance monitoring architecture for ATM switches using the 0₃ object model and describe how to implement the TMN-based performance prosy agent for ATM switching systems. The proposed performance proxy agent provides the TMN standard performance management interfaces by translating the proprietary performance management functions, which eventually leads to network-wide integrated performance management.

  • Building Information Modeling, and its associated work practices, requires project participants to share not only 3D geometric data, but also information in the model that may be considered proprietary and even trade secrets. Thus protection of intellectual property, or BIM copyrights, must be in place for participants to share proprietary information among project stakeholders. Currently Korea does not have adequate copyright laws or mechanisms to provide such protection. This research examined three BIM copyright legal documents, namely U.S.' ConsensusDOCS 301, AIA Document E203/G202, and U.K.'s CIC BIM Protocol to determine how copyright protection is realized, and to formulate appropriate stipulations within the Korean construction context. The resultant requirements include stipulating ownership at to the BIM originator, adopting a license-sublicense scheme, employing a federated model, and use of a formal model delivey table to allocate responsibilities. Given Korea's adoption stage, liability should be minimal, and license revocation should be allowed if payments are not met. The three BIM legal documents focus on practical measures that allow participants to customize requirements for individual projects, and such conventions should be emulated in Korea.

  • In the digital age, the most basic unit of records management is a document file. Depending on whether each document file is produced in an open standard format or an exclusive proprietary format, there is a cost difference in the process of use and long-term preservation. As government agencies moved to cloud-based business management systems, web-based document editing software was newly adopted. They had the opportunity to select a new file format for web-based document editing software. This paper deals with strategies to maximize the advantages of open standard formats while considering the legacy public document production practices. It introduces ISO/IEC 26300:2006 ODF, ISO/IEC 29500:2008 OOXML, KS X 6101 OWPML, etc. as open standard formats, and looks at considerations when choosing a format and web-based document editing software. In addition, it proposes a strategy to maintain the format of document files shared in cloud storage as an open standard format.

  • For providing good quality power steadily, it is required that operators manipulate the control system of power plant with the good knowledge of power plant system and the control strategies, and cope with accidents effectively. With those requirements, it is general to train operators in power plant control room using full-scope simulator. A full scope simulator adopts the I&C instruments in the main cotrol room, so has to include I/O interface system to interface the simulation computer with I&C instruments in main control room. In already developed simulators, most of I/O interface systems are closed. vendor-dependent. proprietary systems. so have the many disadvantages in terms of cost and maintenance. In this paper. we suggest the method to configure I/O interface system for Thermal Power Plant Simulator based on standard technology which gives the advantages of ease-of-use. cost effectiveness, and simplicity of maintenanceuse by using off-the-shelf products for system integration.

  • The problem of the previous proprietary e-business systems is that they are not built upon well defined standards, which causes difficulties in extension of the system and interoperation among them. Therefore, a new e-business standard, ebXML, and related XML standards such as SOAP and XML Signature have been recommended for e-business systems. In this paper, as an application of the new XML standards, we design and implement a new internet bidding system. We use XML Schema for defining the document structure of the bidding system. DOM is used for structure search and XSL is used to represent styles. We use SOAP to handle distributed objects and XML Signature to provide data integrity. Due to the adoption of e-business standards, the developed system has advantages in interoperability and extensibility compared to previous systems.
