National defense is the foundation of establishing a country and the source of national power. Modern defense not only rely on armed forces but also all civil participants, therefore, total national power will be promoted. In order to effectively integrate domestic resources, Executive Yuan issued “Civil Defense Mobilization-Ready Act” on Nov. 14 2001. The purpose of Act is to integrate all domestic human, material resources into an all civil defense mobilization body. The plenty of strength will come from citizens.
The purpose of resource mobilization is when our country meet severe disasters or Chinese Communist armed threat, we can quickly gather civil resources and facilities to timely support all tasks in war. It is a critical factor for successful resource mobilization whether the material resource data collection and statistics are correct or not. Currently, ministries of Executive Yuan, county and city governments are responsible for material resource data collection. There are many different formats from collected data, and no consistent format mechanism. Furthermore, the cause of confused material resource data is that the proper authorities can’t thoroughly collect data. It not only bothers military resource collecting units but also future resource mobilization task enforcement. To solve inconsistent material resource data, we create a data warehouse, and can quickly collect all the authorities’ resource data by the way of online data communication. The quality of data storage and management will be improved.
In order to seek optimal solution about system architecture, we study the literatures focused on data warehouse, data mining, and online analysis process (OLAP) technologies at the beginning of this paper. We also compare with a variety of commercial data warehouse products. In the meantime, we request military mobilization authorities to provide workflow and data needed in protyping system. In system planning stage, this paper system developmen is based on Sybase I.W.S. The protyping system will be finished in terms of heterogeneous data integration, system query speeding, future system extensibility, and expense on system installation. All above steps will verify significance and feasibility in exploiting data warehouse to develop material mobilization system.||en_US|
