A new data management method called ISSEI was proposed in the previous report [1], to avoid slowing down of data retrieving time for the database that has an inherent nature of ever growing data volume. ISSEI's data handling performance, namely adding, retrieving, updating and deleting data were evaluated. Through the evaluation, it was confirmed that ISSEI's data handling performances are not dependent on the database size, while the conventional DBMS such as MS SQL Server requires more time for data handling as the database size grows [6].This paper deals with evaluations of ISSEI's performance limitation on system operation and maintenance toward applying ISSEI to a corporate knowledge database that has growing data volume. Through the evaluations, interesting results were obtained. One interesting result is that ISSEI's performance dependency on the data volume size is maintained up to the upper capacity of hard disk. Another interesting result is that data recovery performance of ISSEI is drastically degraded by the length of data records. From the two results, it is concluded whether ISSEI can be applied for the database that has growing data volume or not.

In this paper, using an application software system called "sales funnel" is proposed to improve sales force performance measurement and training for B2B business. With this software, updating prospects' information weekly at the origin by sales representatives, allows real time sharing of information throughout a corporation and visualizing the entire sales process. This reduces data preparation time before corporate level strategic discussions. Enforcing weekly updates by this system results in time shortened PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, and Act) cycles, thereby enabling the acceleration of the sales activities. Moreover, repeated PDCA cycles with enforced logical thinking, gives essential on-the-job training to the sales representatives, nurturing them into becoming better performers.

Corporation is operated based on the strategy for having an enterprise to be sustainably growing. The workers who are employees and managers run several tasks simultaneously based on the workflow reflected on their experience and knowledge. Such workflow's tasks affect each other interactively due to invocation of an interrupt. When the multiple workflows are overlapped, the continuity of the active task is interrupted. The evaluated interruption invokes positive or negative effect according to the context of the tasks. In this paper we discuss the attributes of the tasks interruption, to provide an assistance in resuming or sustaining (i.e., interrupted) task work from interruption by the system to achieve suistabanle workflow and possible optimization. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.

Knowledge management system (KMS) should handle efficiently a large information that is in most cases is related to user experiences and related situation that can affecting the performance of these KMS. User usually is keen to looking for the knowledge that fits best in his situation and domain work that instantaneously is changing due to handling situation. This outline presented in this paper facilitates the necessary detection of knowledge discovery that fit in the current problem solving, by estimating the user situation model along with user profile as a coherent model that reflects on the knowledge base in transparent manner. This would participate in determination of the best fitness of work flow that represents a semantic alignment between user profile and knowledge as pair-wise representation for optimized workflow that can participate to reflect a better performance in relation to semantic integration of user model and related knowledge.

This paper explores what kinds of management actions are needed by businesses to enhance their innovation capabilities. The first step is to clarify the differences between information and knowledge. To do this, the author introduces a model that can explain an individual's mental processes in knowledge acquisition and creation. With this model, it becomes explainable in a comprehensive way how "explicit" knowledge received as information is turned into individual knowledge; how "tacit" knowledge can be successfully transferred between workers; and how new knowledge can be created by individuals. The model assumes that knowledge workers can be classified into two categories, i.e., Type-1 and Type-2. A Type-1 knowledge worker is one whose knowledge acquisition depends almost exclusively on learning. A Type-2 worker is one who has a substantial amount of self-created knowledge in addition to learned knowledge. It is quite common to find Type-1 workers, but there are not that many Type-2 workers. Successful business firms are usually led by Type-2 workers, who are more innovative. In order to enhance the innovation capabilities of business firms, rather than waiting for the fortuitous advent of Type-2 workers, management should make an effort to transform existing Type-1 workers into Type-2 workers. The author makes the assertion that such a transformation is possible by putting Type-1 knowledge workers into situations where their "insight for knowledge creation" is constantly stimulated. Constant stimulation is made possible by using an IT system based on the Timed-PDCA concept that was proposed by the author in his previous papers. When this system is deployed seriously by management, it becomes possible to facilitate workers' breakthrough efforts and to promote close collaboration among workers through information sharing and visualization. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
