The classification of residential defects (case study: Citra Garden Residence in Indonesia) was studied. This study aims to more satisfied customers. The study begins with the literature review to formulate the classification of house defects. Then classify the defect of house into two, namely the classification of house defects based on period of post hand over, and the classification of house defects based on category of the defects. Further studies followed by dividing the classification of house defects based on period of post-hand over into three parts, namely before hand over period (inviting time), hand over period, and post-hand over period. The next step is to check the complaint report from the customer service in Citra Garden Residence in Indonesia to quantificate the defects of the house. The classification of house defects based on category of the defects divided into two, namely structural defect (minor, moderate, serious), and nonstructural defect (minor, moderate, serious). The next step is also to check the complaint report from the customer service in Citra Garden Residence in Indonesia to quantificate the defects of the house.The results show that complaint hand over in the level minor defect is the highest complaint. Complaint in the serious defect is the lowest complaint. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This paper presents the design of voltage mode control for impedance-source inverter using Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller. The proposed controller controls the output AC voltage by regulating the DC-link voltage at the input side. Mathematical model of the inverter is developed and the control parameters are design via Bode plot. Simulation under source and load disturbances is carried out to validate the design. From the results, it was shown that the proposed controller is capable to regulate the AC output voltage well. © 2011 IEEE.

Many thermal comfort studies have been conducted in offices, classrooms and dwellings, but few in public buildings such as cathedrals, museums and markets. A recent thermal comfort study has been conducted in three naturally ventilated (NV) buildings, a cathedral, a museum and a market, in Jakarta, between March and April 2014. There is a curiosity as to whether people doing slightly different activities with slightly different clothing insulation values, in different building types, might have different comfort temperatures. Approximately the same number of subjects (respondents) participated in the study of each building. Using the same monitoring equipment, results of this study show that subjects' comfort temperatures were found to be similar in all of the buildings; however, it was found that the spread of the subjects' comfort range in the three buildings was significantly different. © 2015 by the authors.

Software verification and validation is a critical phase in software development projects. But unfortunately in many software development projects, software verification and validation rarely gets sufficient attention. Lack of attention is partly due to the assumption that the software verification & validation is not a priority and there for only limited resources can be allocated. This paper presents the result of study in using forecasting analysis model to assist software test strategy preparation. This study applies forecasting analysis to accumulation of individual transaction data that have been got before the system is tested. Those forecasting results are used as comparison tool to compare with the transaction data generated by system which is being tested. This study use subsidized fuel consumption monitoring system as a case study to apply the forecasting model. Test results on the case study, with some limitations, show that forecasting analysis and simulation model can be used as one of inputs to software verification & validation strategy preparation. © 2012 IEEE.

Variation Order is the things that always happen in every construction project, which in some studies found as one of the causal factor of claims. The variation orders always have a cost and time implication, whatever the variations are there will be a risk that even in the omission of the works, where there are reducti on of the original volume in the Contract, there are risk on additional cost should be take into consideration. The variations in the works, if not handling properly, surely will become the main causal factor of the claims submitted by the contractor. The parties should also be aware that they should pay attention to the clauses related with the variations in the conditions of contract, since misinterpretation and/or different interpretation may lead to dispute. As what Adriaanse [1] said that “A variety of factors makes a construction contract different from most other types of contracts. These include the length of the project, its complexity, its size and the fact that the price agreed and the amount of work done may change as it proceeds”. In the construction contract the most important goal is to complete the project and the premises could be operated without any disputes which are costly and time consuming, it also may hamper the operation which will cause another financial loss to the Employer. The variation orders have many forms, it vary from the Engineer Instruction until the approval of the working drawings which will be used for construction at site. This study concludes that the variation order is the most effective tool for resolving the claim. © Research India Publications.

Transmission lines are an important component in electrical engineering, which can be used to guide energy as well as information. Nonhomogeneous transmission lines, which have position varying quantities, can be used to design matching circuit, delay equalizer, filters VLSI interconnections, etc. In analysis of nonhomogeneous transmission lines, an approach based on method of moment is used. As a basis function, a constant function is used and as weighting function we used a delta function or collocation. In this work, we observed several cases such as lossless and lossy homogeneous transmission lines with matching and arbitrary load. These cases verified the algorithm developed in this work. The second example concerned with nonhomogeneous transmission lines, whose results conformed with those given in the literature. The last example consists of nonhomogeneous transmission lines in form of abruptly changing transmission lines. This structure is used to design a low pass filter. The calculated reflection and transmission factor show almost the same results as given with a commercial available software. © 2014 IEEE.

Bandpass filters play a significant role in wireless communication systems. Transmitted and received signals have to be filtered at a certain center frequency with a specific bandwidth. In designing of microstrip filters, the first step is to carry out an approximated calculation based on using of concentrated components like inductors and capacitors. After getting the specifications required, we realized the filter structure with the parallel-coupled technique. Experimental verification gives comparison, how close the theoretical results and measurements look like.

Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) for snacks in Indonesia currently has a good growth rate on one hand, but on the other hand, its level of competition is also quite high. Growth in sales volume of the Indonesian snack industry, both in modern and traditional markets in 2012, was recorded at 10-15 percent far beyond the growth of other manufacturing industries. However, the level of competition in the snack industry is also relatively high. Business people in the snacks sector do not only compete with fellow local business people but also with imported products, both legal and illegal. Currently, Banten Province is indeed not known as a culinary destination with a variety of distinctively local foods. The growth of the food industry in Banten Province is not as rapid as other manufacturing industries. However, in Banten, some types of food produced in small and medium scales (SMEs) are also known. Therefore, efforts to develop and empower typical local snack SMEs in Banten Province needs to be conducted to be able to increase its competitiveness in facing the globalization era and the ASEAN free market in 2015. The purpose of this reseach is to map the performance profile of Banten typical local snack SMEs and to provide recommendation on SME development strategies for competitive and sustainable Banten typical local snacks. The research method used combines the descriptive research method, IPA (Importance Performance Analysis), and SWOT analysis. The performance level measurement for Banten typical local snack SMEs is based on stakeholder perceptions on the condition of the existing 16 attributes compared to the perception on the development expectation of each of these attributes. Results of SWOT matrix mapping puts the products of Banten typical local snack SMEs in quadran II. The strategy prioritized is the quality attribute maintenance strategy for superior products, as well as product diversification to expand market share, competitiveness, and sustainability of Banten typical local snack SME products.
