This study aims to develop machine learning (ML) models for predicting mental workload using Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as a representation of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) physiological signals. A laboratory experiment, involving 34 participants, was conducted to collect datasets. All participants were measured during baseline, two cognitive tests, and recovery, which were further separated into binary classes (rest vs workload). A comprehensive evaluation was conducted on several ML algorithms, including both single (Support Vector Machine/SVM and Naïve Bayes) and ensemble learning (Gradient Boost and AdaBoost) classifiers and incorporating selected features and validation approaches. The findings indicate that most HRV features differ significantly during periods of mental workload compared to rest phases. The SVM classifier with knowledge domain selection and leave-one-out cross-validation technique is the best model (68.385). These findings highlight the potential to predict mental workload through interpretable features and individualized approaches even with a relatively simple model. The study contributes not only to the creation of a new dataset for specific populations (such as Indonesia) but also to the potential implications for maintaining human cognitive capabilities. It represents a further step toward the development of a mental workload recognition system, with the potential to improve decision-making where cognitive readiness is limited and human error is increased.</p> Nailul Izzah, Auditya Purwandini Sutarto, Ade Hendi, Maslakhatul Ainiyah, Muhammad Nubli bin Abdul Wahab (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Nailul Izzah, Dr, Ade Hendi, Maslakhatul Ainiyah (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/677 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Optimizing Surface Finish and Dimensional Accuracy in 3D Printed Free-Form Objects https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/697 <p>3D printing of free-form objects presents inherent complexity due to their organic and intricate shapes. Designers engage with such objects, considering a range of factors including aesthetics, engineering viability, and ergonomic comfort. This research is focused on achieving the most effective printing parameters for a free-form object utilizing the Digital Light Processing (DLP) technique within a 3D printer. Within this study, a squeezed hexagonal tube-shaped CAD model was employed as an experimental subject, following the principles of the Response Surface Method (RSM). The research delved into the optimization of printing parameters, particularly layer thickness and exposure time, to enhance the dimensional accuracy and surface quality of the free-form model. Two levels were established for each factor: layer thickness was set at 0.06 mm (low) and 0.08 mm (high), while exposure time was tested at 6 s (low) and 8 s (high). The assessment of surface quality involved a qualitative evaluation employing a digital microscope to identify potential defects and imperfections in the print outcomes. The investigation culminated in the identification of the optimal printing parameters: a layer thickness of 0.0753 mm and an exposure time of 7.2143 seconds. This achievement not only enhances the understanding of 3D printing variables in the context of intricate free-form models but also contributes to the broader field of additive manufacturing parameter optimization.</p> Farid Wajdi, Mohd Sazli Saad (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Farid Wajdi, Mohd Sazli Saad (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/697 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Dynamic Scoring and Costing in the Orienteering Problem: A Model Based on Length of Stay https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/660 <p>In today's travel and tourism landscape, the role of travel agents has become increasingly complex as they are challenged to explore a variety of potential destinations. More specifically, the complicated task of planning itineraries that truly satisfy travellers puts travel agents in a crucial role, increasing the complexity of itinerary planning. This complexity is compounded not only by the multitude of possible destinations, but also by non-negotiable constraints such as cost and time. To address these challenges, the orienteering problem represents a fundamental mathematical model that provides a theoretical basis for understanding the nuanced difficulties faced by travel agents.This study ventures into a novel iteration of the orienteering problem, with a particular focus on optimizing travel satisfaction based on length of stay. A notable aspect of this variant is the inclusion of time and cost constraints in the route determination process. Using an integer programming model, the satisfaction scores for each location are described by a diminishing returns function linked to length of stay, while the costs associated with each location follow a linear function influenced by the same parameter. The application of this model is in a hypothetical scenario with 32 nodes, with the calculations facilitated by the FilMINT solver. A sensitivity analysis examines time and cost constraints and shows their decisive influence on the optimization of travel routes. The results of this research contribute significantly to a strategic framework and provide travel agencies with the opportunity to create itineraries that not only meet practical limits but, more importantly, increase traveller satisfaction.</p> Giovano Alberto, Carles Sitompul (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Giovano Alberto, Carles Sitompul (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/660 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 AVOA and ALO Algorithm for Energy-Efficient No-Idle Permutation Flow Shop Scheduling Problem: A Comparison Study https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/636 <p>Global energy consumption is a pressing issue and is predicted to continue increasing between 2010 and 2040. Among the various sectors, the industrial sector, particularly manufacturing, is the main driver of this increase. To effectively address this growing problem and support energy conservation efforts, reducing idle time on production-related machines is critical. The No-Idle Permutation Flow Shop Problem (NIPFSP) and, indirectly, the need to reduce energy consumption in manufacturing processes are the driving forces behind this study. The African Vultures Optimization Algorithm (AVOA) and the Ant Lion Optimizer (ALO) are two novel meta-heuristic algorithms designed to achieve this goal. The effectiveness of both AVOA and ALO was rigorously evaluated across three distinct scenarios: small, medium, and large. Statistical analysis, in the form of independent sample t-tests, was employed to compare the performance of these algorithms. We found that, while both algorithms yielded similar results in the small case, AVOA demonstrated a superior capability in optimizing the NIPFSP in the medium and large cases and, consequently, in curbing energy consumption. This implies that AVOA offers a more promising approach to addressing energy consumption concerns in the manufacturing sector, particularly in scenarios involving medium- to large-scale production processes. The implementation of such innovative meta-heuristic algorithms holds the potential to significantly contribute to global energy conservation efforts while enhancing the efficiency of industrial operations.</p> Yolanda Mega Risma, Dana Marsetiya Utama (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Yolanda Mega Risma, Dana Marsetiya Utama (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/636 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 An integrated Optimization Model of Product Mix, Assortment Packing, and Distribution in A Fashion Footwear Company https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/673 <p>Recognizing the paramount importance of operational effectiveness and resource management in supply chain management (SCM) of the fashion industry, this study addresses a specific challenge faced by a prominent Indonesian fashion footwear company. The inefficiency is due to repetitive sorting and packaging processes during product distribution, which significantly impact optimal production mixes and product distribution from the distribution center to the point of sale. A crucial aspect is also the optimization of the delivery route. To address these challenges and minimize the total cost of ownership, the study proposes an integrated optimization model. This model simultaneously determines the optimal production quantity, assortment packaging, and distribution channels, taking into account decision variables related to distribution in configuration boxes, overload and underload products, as well as production numbers that respond to store-specific demand fluctuations. A notable contribution of this research is the integration of product mix decisions into the assortment packaging and distribution model, which represents a novel approach. The optimal solution determined using the LINGO 18.0 software highlights the significant influence of product penalty costs and product demand parameters on the objective function, while shipping costs have no noticeable influence. By emphasizing the integration of product mix decisions into the optimization framework, this research contributes significantly to improving the understanding and practical application of efficient supply chain management in the fashion industry.</p> Cucuk Nur Rosyidi, Erina Annastya Octaviani, Pringgo Widyo Laksono (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Cucuk Nur Rosyidi, Erina Annastya Octaviani, Pringgo Widyo Laksono (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/673 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Eye Tracking-based Analysis of Customer Interest on The Effectiveness of Eco-friendly Product Advertising Content https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/695 <p>Amid the escalating environmental crisis that has prompted consumers to adopt eco-friendly lifestyles, the popularity of eco-friendly personal care products is increasing significantly. Nevertheless, marketing these products presents challenges that include inadequate product information, perceived unaffordable prices, and relatively low consumer trust. These challenges present an opportunity for the marketing field to increase consumer interest, particularly through advertising, an important medium for disseminating product information. Recognizing the importance of advertising components in influencing consumer preferences, this study uses eye-tracking to identify critical elements in promoting eco-friendly personal care products. The components examined include information on environmental and personal benefits, the presence or absence of price information, and the presentation of an environmental label (logo and text) in advertising. Each of the 43 participants is confronted with eight carefully crafted advertising stimuli. The results of the study highlight the significant influence of clear benefits and price information on consumer preferences, while indicating that eco-label display does not have a significant impact on consumer preference. This research is intended to serve as a source of actionable marketing strategies and is intended to help promote eco-friendly products and increase consumer interest through targeted and effective advertising.</p> Ghalda Khairunnisa, Hasrini Sari (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Ghalda Khairunnisa, Hasrini Sari (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/695 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Synergizing IFTOPSIS and DEA for Enhanced Efficiency Analysis in Inpatient Units https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/705 <p>The pursuit of efficiency in the business sector is a multifaceted endeavor, extending beyond mere cost reduction to encompass a strategic optimization of operational performance. The enhancement of efficiency is not solely for the benefit of investors or proprietors but is also a concerted effort to maximize resource utilization and minimize waste. This study introduces an integrative approach combining IFTOPSIS and DEA methodologies to deliver a robust efficiency evaluation framework.The fusion of IFTOPSIS's qualitative analysis with DEA's quantitative assessments addresses the complexity of operational performance, providing a balanced evaluation that transcends subjective bias with data-driven insights. IFTOPSIS articulates decision-makers' preferences in uncertain scenarios, assigning weights to criteria, while DEA discriminates between efficient and inefficient operational units. This confluence of methods is applied to the assessment of inpatient healthcare units—a sector that has traditionally relied on patient-centric evaluations, neglecting the comprehensive review of resource deployment. The results of this amalgamated approach reveal dimensions of operational efficiency previously unexplored, offering stakeholders a data-enriched foundation for strategic decision-making. The study's findings have significant implications for the healthcare industry, providing a template for resource evaluation that could inform policy and drive improvements in patient care services.</p> Cholida Usi Wardani, Sobri Abusini, Isnani Darti (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Cholida Usi Wardani, Sobri Abusini, Isnani Darti (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/705 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Innovative Multi-Criteria Decision-Making Approach for Supplier Evaluation: Combining TLF, Fuzzy BWM, and VIKOR https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/724 <p><span class="TextRun SCXW263484842 BCX0" lang="EN-ID" xml:lang="EN-ID" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW263484842 BCX0">When confronted with underperforming suppliers, the need to evaluate and improve supplier performance becomes </span><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW263484842 BCX0">apparent</span><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW263484842 BCX0">.

Company X, a renowned cement manufacturer in Indonesia, relies heavily on four key raw materials, among which clay is particularly crucial for the raw mix. Recent trends have shown a decrease in the Al2O3 composition of clay, necessitating adjustments in clay capacity to uphold quality standards. A thorough technical evaluation of the plant highlighted that a significant number of critical machines, totaling 17, were operating with mechanical availability below the desired threshold. Additionally, a utility analysis pinpointed a shortfall in meeting the required clay tonnage, leading to the identification of machines that would benefit from retrofitting. The financial implications of this initiative were substantial, with the initial investment for the upgrades and subsequent operational costs in the first year being considerable. Yet, this expenditure was offset by a notable profit in the first year post-retrofitting. Key financial metrics further underscored the project's viability: a highly favorable Net Present Value (NPV), an impressive Internal Rate of Return (IRR), a rapid Payback Period (PP), and a significant Profitability Index (PI). These parameters, derived from an exhaustive analysis, clearly support the strategic decision to invest in retrofitting the production machinery at Company X's cement plant, illustrating the project's feasibility and the prospective benefits of this investment.</p> Taufik, Nilda Tri Putri, Muhammad Kevin (Author) Copyright (c) 2023 Taufik, Nilda Tri Putri, Muhammad Kevin (Author) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 https://josi.ft.unand.ac.id/index.php/josi/article/view/613 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0700
