The cooperation on space exploration is an essential element to achieve significant progress in developing countries especially given the needs and costs of exploration. In the Latin American region, the vast majority of countries have little experience in space but they have many interests in common. So far, the cooperation among these countries has been nonexistent or very recent. Nevertheless, the region has common needs and common problematic, cooperation has been essentially cooperation between countries in the region with developed countries or space faring nations. Although this cooperation has allowed the development of national activities in countries like Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela, the need to respond to the aspirations of nations it's essential a regional cooperation. Several major attempts have been done to establish regional cooperation. This process began in 1991 with the Space Conference of the Americas. In the 6 meetings held so far, much progress has been made and many space agencies were created. However, no projects have been created and the future of this mechanism is uncertain. Another attempt resulted in a spatial cooperation UNASUR meeting in which it was determined the creation of a regional agency, but neither has seen concrete results. Recently under the impetus of the International academy of astronautics (IAA), international experts, academia and the head of the regional agencies had declared the importance of establishing a regional cooperation mechanism. From this meeting turned the idea of creating an Alliance of space agencies, as a mechanism for creating common projects and as a forum for possible projects and contributions of the region. However, these initiatives have not achieved the objectives nor had real developments. Finally, the last proposal is the creation of a network of universities interested in the development of space activities in Latin America to achieve cooperation from research, as in Europe. This paper aims to show the evolution of the regional cooperation in Latin America and seeks to expose the recent initiative on the network of universities in Latin America as an initial solution to the lack of cooperation in the region.

Space is a challenge for patent law. From the first Apollo moon mission, to the astronauts on board today's International Space Station, man has used technology in outer space. But what happens if the technology used on these missions is patented on Earth? Because patent rights are territorial, use of patented technology in outer space is presumptively non-infringing, and accordingly requires no license. As increasingly frequently private commercial actors are exploring space, this lack of patent enforcement has the capacity to distort incentives to invent technology that is primarily designed for use outside the Earth's boundaries. While some countries have tried to solve this problem by applying their domestic patent law extra-territorially, an international solution is required. This Article proposes a solution to the problem of patent enforcement in Outer Space. The Article suggests the creation of a "Space Patent" regime to be administered by the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. The Committee should create a "Patents Subcommittee" that will work alongside the preexisting Scientific and Technical Subcommittee and the Legal Subcommittee. This new subcommittee will have the jurisdiction to grant patents on inventions for use in Outer Space. The Subcommittee will not only receive and examine patent applications, but also will serve as an arbitration center for any disputes which arise. To make the scheme a reality, the Outer Space Treaty should be modified. This will stimulate incentives to invent space-related technology in the future.

The cooperation on space exploration is an essential element to achieve significant progress in developing countries especially given the needs and costs of exploration. In the Latin American region, the vast majority of countries have little experience in space and projects Planetary Exploration Robotic and Human Spaceflight seem distant in time So far, the cooperation among these countries has been nonexistent or very recent, although the region has common needs and common problematic, cooperation has been essentially a cooperation between countries in the region with developed countries or space faring nations. Although this cooperation has allowed the development of national activities in countries like Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela, the need to respond to the aspirations of nations it's essential a regional cooperation. It has had several major attempts to establish regional cooperation. This process began in 1991 with the Space Conference of the Americas. In the 6 meetings held so far, much progress has been made and many space agencies were created. However, no specific projects have been created and the future of this mechanism is uncertain.Another attempt resulted in a spatial cooperation UNASUR meeting in which it was determined the creation of a regional agency, but neither have seen concrete results. Finally, under the impetus of the International academy of astronautics (IAA), international experts, academia and the space agencies of the region, at a preparatory workshop for the meeting of Heads of Space Agencies organized in Washington, the head of the regional agencies had declared the importance of establishing a regional cooperation mechanism. From there work done turned the idea of creating an alliance of space agencies, as a flexible mechanism for creating common projects and as a forum for reflection on possible projects and contributions of the region in terms of space exploration. It also seeks to establish a university and regional industry cooperation. This paper aims to show the results of this preparatory workshop and establish the mechanisms and challenges of cooperation in Latin America in the field of space exploration.

This paper presents a model and simulations, which was built with a System Dynamics methodology applied to waste management in the bioethanol supply chain in Colombia. The stages of the supply chain used were cane planting, production and the distribution process. The residues taken into account were bagasse and vinasse. Moreover, four simulation scenarios were performed in which the values of variables modified management strategies. The installed bioethanol production capacity was increased to observe the evolution of increased waste generation evaluated. The initial conditions for the simulation were modified to represent a production of about 2,500,000 liters / day. This leads to an increased generation of vinasse of over 400 million liters on average in a month and around more than 1 million tones of bagasse. The results are used to estimate the impact of management strategies on the amount of waste generated in the production of bioethanol. © The author; licensee Universidad Nacional de Colombia.

In this work, we unfold some differential algebraic aspects of Darboux first integrals of polynomial vector fields. An interesting improvement is that our approach can be applied both to autonomous and non-autonomous vector fields. We give a sufficient and necessary condition for the existence of a Darboux first integral of a specific form for a polynomial vector field with some known algebraic invariant hypersurfaces. For the autonomous case, the classical result of Darboux is obtained as a corollary. For the non-autonomous case our characterization improves a known criterium. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd & London Mathematical Society.

In times of recession, there are fewer consumers are willing to pay for items that do not add value to the final product, such as high inventories, or unnecessary costs. This article aims to propose strategies for the reduction of inventories in the supply chain of multinational companies finished product. For this one of the largest producers of consumer goods in the world with presence in Europe, the Middle East and Africa was studied. Through analysis and business reporting interviews diagnosed and identifies high inventory levels and inventory policies inadequate as key factors that improve supply chain study sample. Also formulating and implementing redistribution processes and forecasting to combat Productive Inventory No impairments, as well as designing processes to be executed to deepen them. The end result is achieved reduce inventory by more than half of Currency Units (UM) million and, in addition to identifying future risks that could jeopardize service levels of the company. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

This article aim to raise Provider Business Strategies of Pharmaceutical Products Chains for its Decreased Costs Logistics. The sample is a multinational production and marketing of pharmaceutical products based in France. The first proposal is to increase the value of MOV, forcing customers to pass orders greater value and volume generating more stock in their stores and therefore make fewer orders. This positively impacts the logistics department budget, given the savings generated in administrative overhead and transportation. The second option is a total restructuring of the business strategy, simplifying trading conditions, normalizing discount rates, establishing new promotions by creating a bonus system that offers the customer different discount rates depending on the total value of the order, the which influence the client and leads to ordering more volume, therefore less requested annually. This proposed strategy seeks to simplify logistics and sales operations, reducing operating costs and the pursuit of incremental business. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

An analysis of forecast system SAP-APO from a producer of food demand is made. It is detected that the process does not generate accurate forecasts compared to sales of products in previous months due to the mismatch of parameters and forecast periods models. Therefore the following suggestions for improvement are generated: redefining the parameters of statistical models of demand module SAP-APO, change the statistical model of adaptive average seasonality and trend historical data and categorize the products according to an analysis segmentation to assign a range of different tolerance to each when comparing their demand forecasts with sales in recent months. After implementing the improvements to the product percentage decreased manually adjust 12.58%, compared to the level of previous attention. This decrease of attention, resulting in an increase in the utility system more than 85%. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

In this paper, we define the bi-periodic incomplete Fibonacci sequences, we study some recurrence relations linked to them, some properties of these numbers and their generating functions. In the case a = k = b, we obtain the incomplete k-Fibonacci numbers. If a = 1 = b, we have the incomplete Fibonacci numbers.
