A maximum of 250 words in total, excluding keywords. It has to be available in english and Indonesian languages. Please avoid the use of abbreviations and do not cite references in the abstract.


Authors should provide appropriate and short keywords that encapsulate the principal topics of the paper. The maximum number of keywords are 5 (five) words and arranged alphabetically.

Manuscript organization

The body of the manuscript should be organized (at least) into the IMRaD structure as follows;


It provides adequate background or context (problem and its significance) of the study. The subject should not be written extensively. It is expected that rationale or purpose of the study (gap analysis), the objective in general and specific, and hypothesis (if any) should be expressed clearly. Present a clear "state of the art" of the subject, which discussed literature and theoretical concepts behind it. A concise general background may be included in the article.


It provides sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods must be showed clearly and detail. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described. Indicate the participants observed, including demographic data, number of respondents, the rationale of respondents selection, etc. Describe the design of the experiment, such as the experiment procedures, surveys, interviews, observation characteristics, etc. Write the complete research procedure. Be sure that explanations made in the article will allow other researchers reproduce the work, or make future work out of it.


Author must write results in a logical sequence. Results with important findings should be present first. Results and discussion are written separately and presented sequentially, from the main to supporting data. Each showed result must be mentioned in the methodology. When presenting results in a table or figure, do not repeat all those contents in the text. Present only the summary of the text. Describe only new and important aspects of the study. Do not repeat all information from the results section or any section above. Present limitations of the study. Write the issues that are new or unsolved, for future research. This section consists of the information on what/how the presented data were produced, no raw data should be present in the article.

The produced data are presented in tables, or figures with an explanation of what is the result/findings from the work.  However, if the author requires a hard copy, then the photo is recommended in black and white (because there is an additional cost of Rp. 300,000, - / page if in color). The title of the image is written below the picture.


Author needs to address connections between findings and basic concepts or hypothesis made earlier. Authors should also express whether any arguments were needed relating to other works from other researchers. Write implications made by the work related to theoretical or applications.


The conclusion should be linked to the title and objectives of the study. Do not make statements not adequately supported by your findings. Write the improvements made to industrial engineering field or science in general. Do not make further discussions, repeat the abstract, nor only list the results of research results. Do not use bulleted points, use paragraphed sentences instead.


The author must declare all sources of external research funding in their article and a statement to this effect should appear in the Acknowledgements section. Those who contribute but do not meet all criteria for authorship should not be listed as authors, but they should be acknowledged at the end of the text. Only the names of the persons but not their role should be written under the acknowledgment section. 

Figures and tables

All Figures (charts, diagrams, line drawings, web pages/screenshots, and photographic images) should be submitted directly in the main body of the manuscript. All Figures should be of high quality, legible, and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Graphics may be supplied in color to facilitate their appearance on the online database.

Tables should be typed and included in the main body of the article. The position of tables should be inserted in the text as close to the point of reference as possible. Ensure that any superscripts or asterisks are shown next to the relevant items and have corresponding explanations displayed as footnotes to the table, figure or plate.


Each literature that refers to and finds in the article (author, year) must be written in the references. In citing an article written by two authors, the two family names must be mentioned, for example: Habazar and Yanti (2017) or (Habazar and Yanti, 2017). To cite an article written by three or more authors, only the first author's family name is mentioned, followed by et al. Writing et al. plus comma if followed directly by the year of publication. If the year is in parentheses, then et al. not followed by a comma. Writing words et al. not in italic style, for example: Lina et al. (2012) or (Lina et al., 2012).

Quotations that are indicated by the word "cit" or originating from an uncertain source (anonymous) must be avoided. The references for data that have not been published yet and personal communication are not displayed in the references but must be written directly in the text, for example: (Rifai 2007, personal communication) or (Setyawan AD 2007, unpublished data).
The reference is written alphabetically without numbering. Writing in the bibliography, the first author's family name is placed in the front, while for the next author's name is written with the abbreviated first name. The title of the article is not in italic style, and written in small letters unless there are certain writing conventions, such as place names. Journal names must be written in full, not in italic style and must not be abbreviated.

The references should be carefully checked for completeness, accuracy, and consistency. A reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied as follows:
