However, not all Smart Cities implementations worked and were implemented well, because the community still not ready for the implementation of Smart City. The aim of this research is to investigate community readiness and finding low impact factors for implementing smart cities based on 5 factors, namely AU, PEOU, ATU, BIU, and PU. This research was using a qualitative study with the Technology Acceptance Model approach (TAM) to investigate the relationship between 5 factors. Based on the results of data distribution, there are 2 clusters, namely people who know about public service applications and people who are not aware of any public service applications. Furthermore, there are 3 tests conducted in this research namely T-test, F-test and Coefficient Determination Test to determine the impact and influence of the relationship between each factor. However, from the results of the t-test it was found that there were 2 relationships that had no impact because the t-count was negative and the 2 relationships between these factors were between PU - AU and AU - PU.</p> M.

In supporting plants' functional role, this study proposes a novel approach for a general framework for selecting plants. The method to achieve the objectives of this study was based on previous empirical studies conducted in various places under different environmental quality conditions. The essential findings of the selected literature became part of the technical feasibility process in selecting plants. Significant results indicate the mechanism of controlling airborne contaminants by plants through aerial parts and growth media. Gaseous pollutants can be absorbed along with carbon dioxide absorption, while particulate matter is deposited on the leaf surface. Some other contaminants enter the plant growth medium, which plants can process with microbes in the root zone. The use of plants for indoor and outdoor phytoremediation is various plant species, sourced and selected from a retrospective study, locally available and standard plants, and popular plants. These findings were developed to include assessments of contaminant-plant interactions and plant-specific experiments. The implications of the plant selection framework can be one of the promising methods in designing sustainable building phytoarchitectures.</em></p> Harida Samudro, Ganjar Samudro, Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1757 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Smart Home System With Battery Backup and Internet of Things https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1969 <p>This research enhances Smart Home Systems by integrating an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) for seamless power source switching between the grid and a backup battery, ensuring uninterrupted operation during power disruptions.

However, to improve passenger comfort, a tool is required to determine the number of passengers on the bus. This research presents an automated system to count the number of passengers based on a background subtraction algorithm and moving object activator. This research aims to provide the number of passengers based on video images taken from the entranceway. The system is built with a camera, Raspberry Pi, and LCD. The APC system starts the counting process by removing the video background image from the captured object image. The entry and exit direction of the object is determined using the concept of moving object activator. The experiments were applied in several scenarios to determine the robustness of the system. The best APC performance was achieved when the system is positioned perpendicularly above the entranceway at a height of 230 cm and a light intensity of 800-1000 lux. Meanwhile, the moving object activator is effective in supporting the system's performance to determine the passenger's direction. In this scenario, the results stated that the accuracy of APC system performance reached 93.8%.</p> Gita Indah Hapsari, Giva Andriana Mutiara, Muhammad Rizky Alfarisi, Lisda Meisaroh, Fanny Husnul Hanifa, Ramadhanu Putra, Dimas Salim, Aris Pujud Kurniawan Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1956 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 The Impulse Buying of Gen Z When Using E-Wallet In Indonesia https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2600 <p>This research aims to analyze the impulse buying of Gen Z when using e-wallets in Indonesia. This type of research is quantitative research using the Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) framework. The sampling technique involved convenience sampling with a total of 393 Gen Z e-wallet users in Indonesia who had been surveyed online. Theoretical implications in this study are implementing the S-O-R framework on e-wallet enriches. This research provides a new perspective using Generation Z as a research subject. The results found in this study revealed that the model could explain 60.2% of variance satisfaction and 5.9% of impulse buying. In addition, the factors that encourage satisfaction include perceived interactivity, perceived risk, and subjective norms that significantly affect satisfaction with a small effect. Perceived usefulness is the most significant factor with a substantial impact that positively influences satisfaction. This satisfaction is proven to control impulse buying positively, but it can only be explained in a small part. The research's practical implication is that these results can provide input for e-wallet development companies to satisfy Gen Z using e-wallets in impulse buying.</p> Lim Sanny, Gilang Rafi Chandra, Kitsy Chelles, Laurent Angelica Santoso Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2600 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Performance Evaluation of Logistics Service Provider (LSP) in FMCG Companies Using Physical Distribution Service Quality (PDSQ) Dimension: Case Study https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1997 <p>Increasingly fierce business competition requires companies to be able to meet customer desires on time, in the right amount and in the right quality. FMCG XXX Company is a skin care product manufacturing company that focuses on production activities. Therefore, the company transfers product distribution activities to customers (distributors) to Logistics Service Providers (LSP). FMCG XXX hold consumer’s satisfaction in the highest regard. Along with the increasing number of activities being diverted, FMCG XXX companies aim to evaluate LSP performance through appropriate indicators. The indicators evaluated in this study adopt dimensions in Physical Distribution Service Quality (PDSQ) which consist of three dimensions, namely timeliness, availability and condition. Based on the results of the study, 13 indicators were obtained that FMCG XXX Company used to evaluate LSP performance. In general, around 69% of LSP's actual performance has been able to meet the targets set by the company, where two indicators are able to exceed the target and seven indicators are in accordance with the target. However, the company still has to focus on four indicators that have negative deviations because the actual performance value is less than the target set by the company. Negative indicators come from the availability and condition dimensions. The company coordinates with LSP to design improvement projects in order to improve actual performance according to the company's targets.</p> Evi Yuliawati, Clora Brilliana, Nur Rahmawati, Dian Trihastuti Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1997 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Analysis of a Balanced Short Circuit on a Sulbagsel Electrical System by Using The FFA-ABC Method Approach https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2106 <p>Fault studies are an important part of electrical power system analysis. The purpose of this study was to determine the amount of line current at the point of disturbance when a three-phase balanced fault occurs in the real Sulbagsel electrical system. In this paper, a new hybrid FFA-ABC (Fruit Fly Algorithm-Artificial Bee Colony) method is proposed, which is one of the new methods used to calculate balanced three-phase short circuit currents in electric power systems, especially in the real Sulbagsel electrical system of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The real electricity system of Sulbagsel was chosen as the research object because this system consists of 15 generators, 44 buses, 52 transmission lines, and 29 load buses with system voltages varying from 30 kV, 70 kV, 150 kV, and 275 kV so that this system is included in the complex system category. To test the effectiveness of the proposed FFA-ABC method, it was implemented on a real electric power system, namely the Sulbagsel System. In addition, it can also be applied to IEEE electrical systems or other real electric power systems. The results of the new hybrid FFA-ABC method of the balanced short circuit analysis of the Sulbagsel electrical system are then compared using the FFA method, the ABC method, and the deterministic method (in this case, the bus impedance matrix (BIM) method). The simulation results obtained show that the FFA-ABC hybrid method is able to solve the problem of balanced short circuit analysis in the Sulbagsel electrical system in South Sulawesi, Indonesia which the largest fault current occurs when the fault is close to the slack bus generator (bus 2=Sidrap) of 18.9697 p.u, and the smallest fault current occurs when the fault is farthest from the slack bus generator (bus 44=Poso) of 0.8457 p.u.</p> Haripuddin Haripuddin, Al Imran, Zulhajji Zulhajji, Muliaty Yantahin Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2106 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Soft Skills and Hard Skills Needed In Industry 4.0 For Electrical Engineering Students https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2174 <p>This paper investigates industry perceptions regarding the relevance of the courses in the curriculum provided by universities and whether they are in accordance with the demands that exist in the industrial world.

Every year, 130,000 people in India die from mouth cancer. Getting a diagnosis from a clinical exam by skilled doctors and a biopsy takes time. When a problem is found early, it is always easier to treat. The primary goal of this work is to recognise disease-affected oral regions in a given oral image and classify the oral cancer disorder. This study employs unique Deep Learning algorithms to detect the location of disease-affected oral areas. This work employs the most effective feature extraction techniques, including appearance and patter-based features. Following feature extraction, the Bee Pulse Couple Neural Network (BeePCNN) algorithm is used to choose the best feature. Finally, Deep Learning is used to classify these attributes. An innovative FGPSOCNN reduces the computational complexity of CNN. On an additional real-time data set from Arthi Scan Hospital, a secondary evaluation is conducted. The experimental results indicate that the innovative FGPSOCNN performs better than existing methods.</p> <p><strong> </strong></p> R Dharani, S. Revathy, K.

Hence, it is imperative for both theoretical and empirical studies to contribute towards enhancing our comprehension of the strategy, implementation, and utilization of information systems in the specific context of nonprofit organizations. The investigation of information systems within the context of non-profit organizations offers a promising avenue for advancing the field of information systems research. This study focuses on the development of an information systems framework using the soft systems methodology, which has already been established. One opportunity for the advancement of information systems in non-profit organizations lies in the establishment of a comprehensive framework that facilitates adoption and is accompanied by robust data governance. This framework enables the analysis of data and the generation of valuable insights, thereby contributing to the development of information systems in the non-profit sector. The choice of data governance was informed by Zhang's (2010) research, which demonstrated that non-profit organizations face significant obstacles in the form of privacy and data security concerns. Furthermore, it is apparent that the preservation of data privacy plays a crucial role in the acceptance and utilization of information systems within non-profit entities. This research aims to contribute to the resolution of the issue by establishing a governance framework for information systems that effectively communicates to users the absence of data privacy risks associated with the systems employed by organizations. The objective of this study is to create a data governance model that will fill the research gap mentioned earlier and make a valuable contribution to the field of information systems research. The formation of the data governance model will involve the integration of soft systems methodology and the DAMA framework. The outcome of this study will be a data governance model specifically designed for a nationwide non-profit organization that utilizes microservices as its cutting-edge technology.</p> Adi Suryaputra Paramita, Harjanto Prabowo, Arief Ramadhan, Dana Indra Sensuse Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2415 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Application of E-Glass Jute Hybrid Laminate Composite with Curved Shape on Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Column Concrete https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2072 <p>This study provides a better understanding of reinforcing cylindrical concrete columns (CCC) using a hybrid laminated composite material (HLC) composed of jute and e-glass fibers, including the influence of layer quantity on strength and a comparison with previous research. The utilization of these alternative materials may lead to the development of novel and efficient solutions for constructing durable and robust structures. The primary objectives of this research are to assess the effects of employing HLC as a reinforcing layer on CCC compressive strength, optimize the reinforcement process by selecting appropriate layer sequences and types, and analyze the type of fiber damage in relation to the strength of HLC composite material. The materials utilized in this study encompass woven jute fabric sheets, e-glass fiber sheets, and epoxy resin. Compressive strength testing was conducted following ASTM C39 standards. Specimen variations were based on the number and type of reinforcing layers. The results revealed that CCC compressive strength increased by up to 100% with the application of up to three layers of jute compared to an unlayered specimen. Furthermore, CCC compressive strength experienced a remarkable enhancement of up to 150% with the incorporation of HLC composite. Hence, the implementation of HLC demonstrates significant potential for augmenting the strength of concrete structures.</p> Achmad Jusuf Zulfikar, Mohd Yuhazri Yaakob, Rahmad Bayu Syah Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2072 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 The Business Digitalization Model to Enhance Family Business Performance https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2049 <p>Digital transformation is changing how an organization uses technology, enterprise, processes, and people to improve performance and adopt a new business model. Digital transformation drives value through shared industry information and insights. However, several limitations, such as differences in culture and perspective between owners and management, impede the implementation of this digitalization. Harmonization is needed to keep the changes from getting out of hand because the digitization process is affected not only by sales, marketing, and finance processes but also by the culture of digitization. This study investigates the impact of digital organizational culture, digital capabilities, digital technology, and digital transformation strategy on the performance of family businesses. The research design is a quantitative study with structural equation modeling. The population in this study cannot be determined due to limited access to the association. The sample size was calculated using the G-Power calculator with an effect size of 0.15, an alpha level of 0.05, and a power of 0.80. According to the calculation, there are 43 respondents in the study. The sampling technique is convenient sampling. The survey was distributed online using questionnaires sent via email. The data analysis software is Smart PLS 4.0.8.5. The result shows that the organization's culture plays a big part in improving performance. The organization's culture strongly affects business digitization and technology value development. The value of developed technology affects business performance. Therefore, the top management needs to prioritize the IT development that transforms their business and improves business performance</p> <p> </p> Ricky Adrian Gunawan, Andika Pratama, Arta Moro Sundjaja Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2049 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 A Conceptual Aquila Merged Arithmetic Optimization (AIAO) Integrated Auto-Encoder Based Long Short Term Memory (AUE-LSTM) For Sentiment Analysis https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2825 <p>Sentiment analysis is a branch of analysis that uses disorganized written language to infer the opinions and emotions of people's critiques and attitudes toward entities and its features. In order to produce acceptable results, the majority of sentiment analysis models that employ supervised learning algorithms require a large amount of labeled information during the training stage. This is typically costly and results in significant labor expenses when used in practical applications. In this study, an intelligent and unique sentiment prediction system is developed for accurately classifying the positive, negative, and neutral comments from the social media dataset. Data preprocessing, which entails noise reduction, tokenization, standardization, normalization, stop word removal, and stemming, is done to ensure that the data is of a high enough quality for efficient sentiment prediction and analysis. The preprocessed data is then used to extract a mix of features, including hash tagging, Bag of Words (BoW), and Parts of Speech (PoS). Consequently, in order to choose the best features and speed up the classifier, a new hybrid optimization method called Aquila merged Arithmetic Optimization (AIAO) is used. Furthermore, an Auto-Encoder based Long Short Term Memory (AuE-LSTM), an innovative and clever ensemble learning technique, is used to precisely anticipate and classify user feelings based on the chosen data. This study uses a variety of open source social media datasets to evaluate the performance of the suggested AIAO integrated AuE-LSTM model.</p> Sangeetha J, Maria Anu V Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2825 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Social Consumer Relation Management Using Social Media as a Marketing Scheme in University https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3149 <p><em>Social media or called as ‘socmed’ is an online media that is frequently used by humans to improve in activities, which include promoting study programs of university.

The security offered by lighter encryption algorithms could not be as high as that offered by heavier encryption techniques. In this paper, a Modified KLEIN Algorithm is proposed for image encryption based on the Knight Tour movement in Chessboard. The required key generation is represented by inputting an image as a key image and then applying a specific operation based on knight tour movement to produce a key scheduled in the proposed encryption algorithm. The movement of Knight Tour applied in modifying the proposed algorithm for increasing security. The experimental results explain the efficiency of a modified algorithm when comparing the histogram of the input image with the encrypted image also the correlation is tested before and after encryption in three directions horizontal, vertical, and diagonal which explains there are very low values of them in all directions. The similarity test also explains there are high differences between the plain and encrypted images. The chessboard movement might be useful when used with another encryption algorithm which increases the confidentiality of transferring data. The contribution of this work is the use of an image as a key for encryption with a specific planning method which helps in key management.</p> Emaan Oudha Oraby, Rafeef Mohammed Hamza Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3296 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Student Acceptance Study of PhET Simulation with an Expanded Technology Acceptance Model Approach https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3041 <p>Phet simulation is a computer-based practicum simulation medium that helps to increase students’ engagement and understanding through concept visualization. Even though there have been numerous studies on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) related to Phet simulation, the TAM study of Phet simulation combined with certain learning methods is rarely observed. We propose an advanced version of TAM by including the external variables of system quality, user characteristics, and instructor. This study is a quantitative design with a descriptive, explanatory type. This model was tested using an online questionnaire disseminated to 49 students that finished taking basic natural sciences subjects using Phet simulation based on problem-based learning. The result showed that system quality has an effect on perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use has an effect on behavioral intention of use, behavioral intention of use has an effect on actual usage, and there is no relationship between instructor quality on perceived usefulness.

In the study that has been published, the ECG signal has been examined and used for a number of applications. The monitoring of heart rate and the analysis of heart rhythm patterns, the detection and diagnosis of cardiac diseases, the identification of emotional states, and the use of biometric identification methods are a few examples of applications in the field. Several various phases may be involved in the analysis of electrocardiogram (ECG) data, depending on the type of study being done. Preprocessing, feature extraction, feature selection, feature modification, and classification are frequently included in these stages. Every stage must be finished in order for the analysis to go smoothly. Additionally, accurate success measures and the creation of an acceptable ECG signal database are prerequisites for the analysis of electrocardiogram (ECG) signals. Identification and diagnosis of various cardiac illnesses depend heavily on the ECG segmentation and feature extraction procedure. Electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are frequently obtained for a variety of purposes, including the diagnosis of cardiovascular conditions, the identification of arrhythmias, the provision of physiological feedback, the detection of sleep apnea, routine patient monitoring, the prediction of sudden cardiac arrest, and the creation of systems for identifying vital signs, emotional states, and physical activities. The ECG has been widely used for the diagnosis and prognosis of a variety of heart diseases. Currently, a range of cardiac diseases can be accurately identified by computerized automated reports, which can then generate an automated report. This academic paper aims to provide an overview of the most important problems associated with using deep learning and machine learning to diagnose diseases based on electrocardiography, as well as a review of research on these techniques and methods and a discussion of the major data sets used by researchers.</p> Tamara Hameed Yousiaf, Mohammed S.

This research aims to explore the potential of biopolymers from Green Grass Jelly Leaves as an alternative to synthetic polymers in an effort to increase oil recovery involving sequential pretreatment, extraction, and characterization stages to obtain essential pectin compounds. This experiment centers on a biopolymer sourced from Green Grass Jelly Leaves, involving sequential steps of pretreatment, extraction, and characterization to obtain essential pectin compounds. Characterization employed scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The recorded peak viscosity for Green Grass Jelly Leaves biopolymer was 2.04 cp at 3000 ppm concentration, contrasting with pectin's 1.98 cp viscosity. In comparison, industrial biopolymer Xanthan Gum displayed significantly higher viscosity at 95.01 cp for 3000 ppm concentration. Thermal stability assessment under reservoir conditions (30°C and 60°C) demonstrated that Green Grass Jelly Leaves biopolymer pectin exhibited peak viscosities of 55.29 cP and 51.77 cP at 3000 ppm concentration, respectively. These results show that the comparison between biopolymer and synthetic polymer is not too far and there is an increase in viscosity as the concentration increases, which can increase sweep efficiency.</p> </div> Dita Putri Purnama, Anas Hidayat, Muhammad Khairul Afdhol, Fiki Hidayat Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3019 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Standardscaler's Potential in Enhancing Breast Cancer Accuracy Using Machine Learning https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3080 <p>The major consequence of breast cancer is death.

One in every four newborns born with serious coronary artery disease will require surgery or other early therapy. Early identification of CHD in the fetal heart, on the other hand, is more critical for diagnosis. Extracting information from ultrasound (US) images is a difficult and time-consuming job. Deep learning (Dl) CNNs have been frequently utilized in fetal echocardiography for CAD identification to overcome this difficulty. In this work, a DL based neural network is proposed for classifying the normal and abnormal fetal heart based on US images. A total of 363 pregnant women between the ages of 18 and 34 weeks who had coronary artery disease or fetal good hearts were included. These US images are pre-processed using SCRAB (scalable range based adaptive bilateral filter) for eliminating the noise artifacts. The relevant features are extracted from the US images and classify them into normal and CHD by using the deep Reg net network. The proposed model integrates the Reg net -module with the CNN architecture to diminish the computational complexity and, simultaneously, attains an effectual classification accuracy. The proposed network attains higher accuracy of 98.4% for the normal and 97.2% for CHD. To confirm the efficiency of the proposed Reg net is compared to the various deep learning networks.</p> S.

PT XYZ as a heavy equipment assembly company is one of the companies that depends on process reliability for a smooth production process. Based on this, the problems raised in this study focus on increasing the efficiency of the process of installing bolts on slew bearings. By using Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) and Process Capability (CpK) as the main benchmarks for measuring the quality of the production process where the latest data shows the average OEE value is at 18.53%, while the CpK value for the bolt tightening process is at 0 ,67. The OEE and CpK figures obtained show that the process quality is still not optimal and needs to be improved. The purpose of this research is to identify and prevent as many factors as possible that can lead to process failure. The methods used to evaluate processes and to identify where and how a process might fail are Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) and Logic Tree Analysis (LTA). Both methods are used to identify and prevent as many factors as possible that can lead to a process failure. The results of research using the FMEA and LTA methods show that in the process of installing slew bearing bolts there is a process that needs to be improved because the RPN value is quite high, namely above 125. Some suggestions for improvement such as the use of a manipulator arm on a torque tool and the implementation of a manufacturing execution system (MES) can reduce the RPN value from above 125 to 28, where the process obtained is better than before.</p> Dhadung Prihananto, Taufik Roni Sahroni Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1920 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Optimized Deep Convolutional Neural Network for the Prediction of Breast Cancer Recurrence https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3384 <p><em>With more than 2.1 million new cases of diagnosis each year, breast cancer is considered to be the most prevalent women disease. Within 10 years, nearly 30% patients who got cured at early-stages experienced cancer recurrence. Recurrence is a crucial aspect of breast cancer behaviour that is inseparably linked to mortality. Despite its importance, the significant proportion of breast cancer datasets rarely include it, which makes research into its prediction more challenging. It is still difficult to predict who will experience a recurrence and who won't, which has implications for the treatment that goes along with it. Clinicians treating breast cancer may be able to avoid ineffective overtreatment if Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods are developed that can forecast the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence. This work proposes a novel automatic breast cancer recurrence classification and prediction system incorporating novel Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) algorithm. The proposed DCNN model is deployed on Wisconsin Breast Cancer dataset for further evaluation. The role of AI in forecasting recurrence is examined in this work. The experimental results were analysed for various combination of train and validation dataset. The accuracy, precision, recall and F1-score for the proposed DCNN was calculated as 97.63 %, 98.57 %, 96.84 %, 97.89 % respectively. </em></p> Arathi Chandran R I, V Mary Amala Bai Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3384 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Strengthening the University-Maritime Industry Collaborations (UMICs): Technology Issues https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3211 <p>In management practise and research, the university-maritime industry collaborations (UMICs) have grown in significance. This trend is reinforced by the necessity for innovation in the current industry environment and the desire of policymakers to commercialise knowledge from academia. Much less is known about these collaborations, although significant research efforts have been made to identify the success factors for these collaborations. Therefore, the aim of this study is to identify and explore the key factors that strengthen UMICs and propose a framework to enhance collaboration, so that a research agenda for the future will be developed based on an assessment of the existing literature. This study adopted a method of systematic literature review using published and unpublished theoretical literature to conduct analysis using five research databases in order to propose a framework aimed at identifying the key factors to strengthen UMICs. The findings of this study concluded that effective communication, trust, and adequate fund resources are essential for UMICs to succeed. Open communication channels, mutual trust, and shared vision can help build strong partnerships, while adequate funding can support research and development of new technologies, practices, and solutions. Based on previous research, none of them treated combined fund resources, effective communication, and trust as an independent variables towards UMICs relationship specifically. Hence, this study fills the gap by proposing a framework to test the relationship between fund resources, effective communication, and trust towards UMICs. Thus, the proposed framework can be used as a benchmark to strengthen UMICs in the future. This study also will encourage the managers in the maritime industry to drive innovation, establish strategic collaborations, actively involve stakeholders, and foster innovation and economic growth in the maritime industry to strengthen UMICs. The existing limited body of knowledge and literature will also benefit from this study.</p> Ummu Ajirah Abdul Rauf, Nusra Izzaty Aziz, Nor Amirah Syairah Zulkarnaini, Mazzlida Mat Deli, Maryam Jamilah Asha’ari, ‘Ainul Huda Jamil, Siti Intan Nurdiana Wong Abdullah Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3211 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 SQL Injection Detection Using RNN Deep Learning Model https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2864 <p>SQL injection attacks are a common type of cyber-attack that exploit vulnerabilities in web applications to access databases through malicious SQL queries. These attacks pose a serious threat to the security and integrity of web applications and their data. The existing methods for detecting SQL injection attacks are based on predefined rules that can be easily circumvented by sophisticated attackers. Therefore, there is a need for a more robust and effective method for detecting SQL injection attacks. In this research, we propose a novel method for detecting SQL injection attacks using recurrent neural networks (RNN), which are a type of deep learning model that can capture the syntax and semantic features of SQL queries. We train an RNN model on a dataset of benign and malicious SQL queries, and use it to classify queries as either benign or malicious. We evaluate our method on a benchmark dataset and compare it with the existing rule-based methods. Our experimental results show that our method achieved high accuracy and outperformed the rule-based methods for detecting SQL injection attacks. Our research contributes to the field of web application security by providing a new and effective solution for protecting web applications from SQL injection attacks using deep learning. Our method has both practical and theoretical implications, as it can be easily integrated into existing web application security frameworks to provide an additional layer of protection against SQL injection attacks, and it can also advance the understanding of how deep learning models can be applied to natural language processing tasks such as SQL query analysis.</p> Abdulbasit ALAzzawi Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2864 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 A Machine Learning Model for Determination of Gender Utilizing Hybrid Classifiers https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/1839 <p>One part of forensic anthropology involves investigating skeletal remains to identify corpses, and many of these remains were found incomplete, burned, broken, or destroyed, making investigation challenging. This study aims to use the pelvis and femur to identify the gender of skeletal remains. The pelvis and femur have previously been proven to be accurate indicators of a corpse's gender. The identification process is done through the measurement of the subpubic angle of the pelvis and the angle taken straight down from the top of the femur to the patella and then straight up. The two measurements were combined using the principal component analysis (PCA) method into two attributes on the x and y axes. These attributes were later used as data for the machine learning model design. The design process consisted of an Artificial Neutral Network (ANN) design model and Support Vector Machine (SVM) design model combined into a hybrid machine learning system. The ANN and SVM hybrid machine learning were tested with acquired data. The result of the test using the confusion matrix showed 83.33% accuracy, which is categorized as "good classification" based on Area Under the Curve (AUC).</p> Dewi Nasien, M.

However, it is problematic when used directly because it is gummy, has a high viscosity and is degradable. Various conversion processes have been conducted that directly convert CPO into biokerosene, but it requires high temperature and pressure. Therefore, as a novelty, this study aims to develop the technology for converting triglycerides into biokerosene under relatively low operating conditions and producing similar petroleum kerosene by electrolysis-assisted and electromagnetic induction. In this study, the conversion technology process was conducted in three steps (i) converting triglycerides to Free Fatty Acids (FFA), (ii) converting FFA to alkanes, and (iii) converting alkanes to biokerosene. Step (ii) is assisted by the electrolysis process, meanwhile, step (iii) is assisted by electromagnetic irradiation. The finding showed that electrolysis obtained 73.47% yield of alkanes and electromagnetic irradiation obtained 78.02% yield of biokerosene. Biokerosene is almost close to kerosene-based petroleum in terms of colour Saybolt, flash point and Net Heating Value. The findings of this study may provide an alternate technology approach for biokerosene synthesis and solution kerosene scarcity.</p> Sri Rizki Putri Primandari, Krismadinata Krismadinata, Dori Yuvenda, Remon Lapisa, Andre Kurniawan, Mulianti Mulianti, Muhammad Djoni Bustan, Sri Haryati, Gusni Sushanti, Tarig Elshaarani, Yus Donald Chaniago Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3127 Sun, 10 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Optimizing Cloud-Fog-Edge Job Scheduling Using Catastrophic Genetic Algorithm and Block Chain-Based Trust: A Collaborative Approach https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/3125 <p>Collaborative edge-cloud features improve job scheduling. Cloud job scheduling is crucial. Pending delay completion. A cloud-edge mixed system replaced centralized cloud computing. Combining resource levels reduces terminal user service call latency. Decentralization, regionalization, and node dispersal autonomy increase ambiguity, unreliability, and instability. This paper will plan cloud-migrating tasks on edge devices or the cloud to achieve a global optimum. The objective of this research is to enhance the efficiency of job scheduling in cloud-fog edge environments through the integration of the Catastrophic Genetic Algorithm (CGA), a genetic algorithm inspired by natural evolution. Additionally, Berger's theory will be employed to develop a trust-enabled interaction framework based on blockchain technology. The CGA fitness function incorporates load balancing and reasonability in the coordination of services and scheduling of tasks, with the goal of maximizing performance. This article presents proposed improvements to the CGA, which involve the incorporation of mutation and crossover operators, roulette selection, and cataclysm. These changes aim to expand the search area and potentially discover schedules that are more optimal. The approach also effectively deals with the problem of premature convergence, guaranteeing ample time for the algorithm to comprehensively explore the solution space prior to reaching a final solution. The experimental findings indicate that the strategy put forward in this study yields a substantial reduction in task completion time, surpassing 97%. Furthermore, it effectively addresses the best local problem, hence showcasing competing options.</p> Nibras A. Mohammed Ali, Firas A.

One of the supporting factors is that it has high nutritional value and low price. Tofu is produced by micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in all provinces in Indonesia, including in the region of Aceh. Based on the results of observations, the tofu production process still predominantly uses human labor, starting from the washing process to the cutting process. This activity is carried out every day with a high repetition rate. If this is allowed to happen for a long time, workers will be exposed to the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. This study uses the Cornell Musculoskeletal Disorders (CMDQ) questionnaire to assess the workers' work posture and determine the level of occupational hazard risk using the Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA) method. The results of the distribution of questionnaires show that the body parts that experienced pain complaints were the shoulder (right dan left), upper back, upper arm (right and left), lower back, forearm (right and left), also wrist (right and left). It happens in the filtering process. The results of the assessment of work posture with the REBA method show the score of work posture in the filtering process is 13, which means that the filtering posture of workers has a very high risk and must be improved immediately. The present research recommended additional intervention that includes engineering and administrative control methods for reducing those workers' complaints of muscle pain.</p> Cut Ita Erliana, Iskandar Hasanuddin, Yuwaldi Away, Raja Ariffin Raja Ghazilla Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Applied Engineering and Technological Science (JAETS) https://journal.yrpipku.com/index.php/jaets/article/view/2396 Thu, 14 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700
