Abstract

Abstract—With the increasing popularity of the Internet, Information System (IS) has become increasingly more profitable. The quality of the IS services should be confirmed prior to deploying it to the web site, resulting in customers that keep coming back. Therefore, this paper presents a framework that integrates Six Sigma Concept to improve the IS service process. The application in the selected company is a multi-tier framework system and there are 1,022 client sites distributed in Taiwan area, one broker server site and three application server sites, which concurrently access and store data from a center database server. When delivering application to the Intranet, users dissatisfaction was at an all time high. We applied the Six Sigma quality cycle: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) to resolve this problem. We plotted user complaints against response time (define), drew up a test plan and executed the load testing (measure), collected testing data from different client sites for analysis (analyze), found where the bottleneck was and fixed it (improve) and monitored the status to satisfy users’ requirement (control).

The results showed that the main factors that affect the behavior of the production of gas are the world gas price and Indonesian gas price. While export gas Indonesia's response to the gas production of elastic in the long run shows the development potential of resources in pushing gas export gas Indonesia. On the other hand the factors that affect the demand for gas by Indonesian electrical company and industrial fertilizers urea vary. However subsidies became influential real policies in boosting demand for gas by both industries.Based on simulation results in 2012-2018 showed that the reallocation policy gas Indonesia has not yet given the best solution for increasing domestic demand for gas Indonesia. The policy of future energy development by Goverment on gas would give relative positive impact to the economic growth and development of gas production .
