ABSTRACT

In this article, the problems in the domestic disaster control tower were identified through the type of activity and a function of the boundary spanning units. A study on the boundary spanning units is to analyze a variety of activities that take place in a very active and dynamic inter-organizational relations, it happened very actively in the United States in the 1980s. The disaster management control tower is also located in the heart of the disaster management system of the country and required the analysis of very dynamic changes in the level of change and innovation. Here, A study on the disaster control tower through the boundary spanning units in inter-organizational boundaries is a meaningful thing. Typical features of the boundary spanning units include a resource securing function, an information processing function, a public relations function, adjustment of inter-organizational relations such as. These features will need to be running flexibly in the disaster control tower. And the four types of disaster management connected with control tower include regular-routine type(Ⅰ), irregular-routine type(Ⅱ), regular-nonroutine type(Ⅲ), irregular-nonroutine type(Ⅳ) etc. We can be study on a disaster management control tower from these types of boundary spanning activities, typeⅣ is the most dynamic type among four types, so a research for the disaster management control tower should be focus on typeⅣ. The most important thing in disaster management control tower is not an exaggeration to say the site response speed and management professionalism. When the emergency disaster occurs, it is very important that various disaster demonstrated well in the sinking accident of Sewol ferry that took three hundreds of lives. It was the result from the worst human disaster. Also this case had shown a lot of problems with cross-talk between the relevant departments to rectify the accident. In a accident and disaster and emergency management field, the control tower that can oversee the boundaries of the organization is operating the installation in order to avoid such problems in the advanced country. This study will contribute to extend the theory of the control tower by analyzing the disaster management system through the function and activity type of boundary spanning units.
