|Abstract: ||Abstract:As the popularity of wireless devices and internet is increasing, the application of wireless communication technologies are broadened at a phenomenal speed. This trend boosts the demand for wireless network. How to employ the wireless broadband communication techniques and mobile digital eletronic devices to enhance a logistic service providing department's(LSPD's) competitiveness and to improve LSPD's performance and efficiency is very important.
From previous literatures review, four types of real-time logistics monitoring alternative(RTLMAs) are found popular in the LSPD in various industries, including LSPD control system, LSPD informatics system, LSPD tracing system, LSPD mobile system. Three major evaluation criteria are found from previous literatures, including collaborative cooperation criterion, integrated logistics service criterion, and LSPD core resource-based criterion. Using the ANP(Analytical Network Process) technique and the three major evaluation criteria to propose a model to select an appropriate RTLMA for each of the three very large organizations headquartered in the Southern Tawan.
This empirical study reveals the most appropriate RTLMA for three surveyed organizations, namely Taiwan Marine Corps, NXP,and ASE Groups, are very different. Taiwan Marine Corps should considers the LSPD control system as its best alternative in selecting RTLMAs, the NXP Corps should considers the LSPD mobile system as its best alternative, and the ASE Groups should considers the LSPD tracing system as its best alternative. Suppliers of the logistics equipments can use these research findings to design and promote their products to LSPDs in the three surveyed organizations and their stakeholders. The major contribution of this research is to study the RTLMAs selection model systematically for LSPDs of the three organizations in WiMAX era, and it is estimated the first WiMAX base station will begin its operation in Taiwan in the 4th quarter in 2008.
