Saturday Night Watching BPL

This is a Saturday night in Indonesia. It is a BPL or Barclays Premier League night. After watching  Arsenal vs Chelsea at 7/00 PM, now I watch QPR vs Totenham Hospurs. They are not my favorite team. Because I sing Glory for United.

This night match will not affect United at all, but it is enough to make me asleep. To keep fighting for earning money by blogging, to keep thinking about my future, to keep listing what I am going to do for tomorrow, to keep thinking about her, to do some blogwalking, and so on.

I think this a long night.

Innovation Contest

This post is only an opinion about an innovation contest held in Indonesia. Like Black Innovation Award. Last year, I competed at this award and did not recognize by the jury. This is not my disappointed opinion, but a review about the award of innovation.

First, innovation is about something new that never been before. Actually, there is no pure innovation in the world. Why? Because it is only use the former knowledge to create something better. Or use the knowledge to make something useful. Or fix the former solution of some problems with a new boundary.

The BIA is held every year with thousands contestant in Indonesia. My friends and I tried to follow this contest last year. But, We lost at the first stage. Means we did not pass the preliminary stage. We just wonder why we did not pass. The contest should give a feed back to the contestant they refused. So, we do not guess what is wrong to our innovation.

Then, from the 50 contestant chosen, I think they are not inventor. There is a blog that review about the 50. You can search at Google. The point here is, the jury is not good enough. They should filter the better idea of innovation. Some of the 50 are available at department store as china's product. Are they called innovator?

BIA 2012 is held since February until May for registration now. But, I try to focus on my Final Task to get graduating after 4 years study. Actually, I want to compete again there, but I will focus more on my study. Hope there is enough time later.

For sharing here, you can the idea of innovation can be from anywhere and anytime. So, prepare for yourself when the idea comes and make it happens. Thank you.

Pray for Indonesia

Indonesia is one of big countries in Asia. As an Indonesian, I am proud of that big which means we have potential in developing with huge people in it. Someday, I will be the leader of Indonesia.

But, the condition of Indonesia is not good enough now. Tomcat, increasing of fuel price, corruption, chaos demonstration, and others. This what we are going to talk about tonight. Not we, but my opinion about my beloved country.

As Indonesian, I hope I can live peacefully here and it is my right. The chaos demonstration should not be happened in Indonesia. I was disappointed with the mass, known as MAHASISWA, doing that chaos demonstration. They speak loudly about the Indonesian people's right. But, they destroy the place where Indonesian work at. Don't they think about that? I don't think so.

Then, they make a blockade on the road. It makes the taxi drivers, Indonesian people who should be defended by them, afraid to take a costumer. Don't they think about that? I don't think so.

Another chaos at the restaurant. Same happened there. The workers are Indonesian people who should be defended by them. I don't think so that they think about it too.

So, what should they do? They should concentrate more on their study and do something to this country. Make  a company that will decrease the unemployment. Make your country be proud of you. Try to develop your country with your knowledge. Do not destroy it, stupid!

About Tomcat, I think it is just a diversion about the hot issue that is happened now especially the corruption issue of the ruling party. Tomcat is not important. So, do not make it as a headline news.

Review: System of Information Management

Sandi Budiyono (I1308531)


Shear strength is one of the important mechanical properties of natural fiber composites. The nature of the information is very useful for research in this area. To measure the mechanical properties of this particular device must be designed taking into account the characteristics of natural fiber composites as a specimen. This study focused on the design aspects of the repeatability of test results.

Shear test methods tailored to the ASTM-D5379-98. Shear test specimens of standard geometry measuring 76mm x 20mm x 12mm (P x L x T) and there are notches 90o (V-notch) in the middle of the specimen with a depth of 4mm are combined according to the needs of Quality Control Laboratory (LSK) March Eleven University of Surakarta , this standard will be a reference to develop the design of shear test equipment. In the final stages of design, performance repeatability test equipment measured using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for specimens of medium density fiberboard (MDF).

The results of this study is modular shear test equipment for the natural fiber composite shear testing using a hydraulic power pack power as the prime mover. Clamping the specimen is specifically designed for natural fiber composites are generally fragile and brittle. ANOVA test showed the device was assessed both in terms of aspects of the repeatability of test results with accuracy below 5%.

Fill associated with the college Management Information System:

Based on the above TA contents, can be picked up information on the results of shear tests on natural fiber composite material according to ASTM standard D5379-98. The test results through ANOVA test showed that the repeatability of test results information has accuracy below 5%.

Development of TA can be done by the use of variations in the specimen notch angle (not just a notch 900). In addition, the shape of the notch of the V-notch can be varied with the other forms, such as the U-shape, double V-notch, and so forth. Development of tools to be much better if the tool can also display data drawn directly in chart form, complete the information value of the data record.

Review of Managemeng Information System



Rangga Romadhan (I1305011)
Unnatural working posture in manual material handling activities are affected by the mismatch between employment facilities to its use, so the impact on work accidents, especially the working posture and work load. It is this factor that occurs in the activity of transport workers' unions in Pasar Gede Surakarta. On actual conditions, especially the manual material handling activities by workers in Pasar Gede transport workers on average 55 kg without using the tools of the appointment. According to the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission which recommended the appointment of the normal range of 34-50 kg without using tools, lifting over 50 kg is recommended to use the tool (Suhardi et al, 2008).
In this study, several steps will be done using different methods. Phase First Instance nordic questionnaires body map, used to identify the causes of musculoskeletal complaints. The second stage of the calculation methods of working posture Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA). The third stage of labor physiology calculations using the energy expenditure and energy cost objective to determine the level of workload and calculate the energy expended by the worker. The fourth stage of work on designing a tool to use anthropometric methods to determine the dimensions of work handtruck designed and obtain results in ergonomic design.
Handtruck design as a tool of work has been tested against 24 labor unions of transport workers' sample. The trial results according to the calculation method of REBA, a decline in the level of risk of musculoskeletal injury. This can be evidenced on the activity of loading and transport, down to the level of risk 2 (moderate). For unloading activity, dropped to the level of risk 2 (moderate). According to calculations by the method of work physiology energy expenditure decreased levels of workload. This is evidenced sixteen respondents classified as light work category, eight respondents classified as moderate work. Handtruck design as a tool for working ergonomically designed handle with the addition of facilities and the use of three wheels wheels to accommodate the needs of transport workers' unions.

Fill in Management Information Systems related courses:

Based on the above TA content, it can be information about the causes of musculoskeletal complaints. Information about it can be seen on the results of analyzes using the nordic body map. In addition, the TA was delivered by processing information about the risk level of work postures REBA method. Information on the rate of decline in the risk level loading-unloading of each reduced by one level. In addition, communicated information about the energy needs of workers to perform their activities. The data obtained through the calculation of energy expenditure, then the results can be compared with each other through the stu energy cost calculations.
The development of TA can be done by designing products specifically for women workers. Of course the data is the data used anthropometric women. Leih then to determine the level of the design needs a tool that is really needed, can use methods of Quality Function Deployment (QFD).
