  • Lean Manufacturing Model Adapted for Waste Reduction in Peruvian Condiment Production Agri-Businesses

    Mesones-Guillén, Axel; Palacios-Jesús, Lizeth; Carvallo-Munar, Edgardo; Salas-Castro, Rosa; Cardenas-Rengifo, Luis (2021-01-01)
    The Peruvian export supply is primarily based on the segment of dressings and condiments. This paper seeks to adapt lean manufacturing tools using Poka-Yoke techniques and process standardization, which may align with existing processes to prevent production errors. This combination of tools is expected to reduce the percentage of waste generated throughout the condiment production process. Subsequent to an initial evaluation of the current method combined with the application of both the tools, 11.4% waste reduction was ultimately reported.

  • Wearable Technology for Presumptive Diagnosis of High Blood Pressure Based on Risk Factors

    Prada, Eithel Josue Meza; Agullar, Helgar Miguel Angel Herrera; Armas-Aguirre, Jimmy; Gonzalez, Paola A. (2021-01-01)
    In this paper, we propose a technological solution integrated to a wearable device that allows measuring some physiological variables such as body mass index (BMI), steps walked in a determined day, burned calories, blood pressure and other risk factors associated with the Framingham´s score. The objective of this article is to identify the evolutionary pattern of the Framingham’s score each day in order to determine a presumptive diagnosis of high blood pressure. The technological solution was validated in the social insurance of a public hospital in Lima, Perú. The preliminary results obtained in a diagnostic test show a sensitivity level of 83.33%, a level of precision better than a traditional Framingham´s score for presumptive diagnosis of high blood pressure. Our proposal contributes to the patient’s awareness about the bad routine habits related to lifestyle and promotes the empowerment of data in order to make some changes that influence on the reduction of cardiovascular disease risk.

  • Evaluation Method of Variables and Indicators for Surgery Block Process Using Process Mining and Data Visualization

    Rojas-Candio, Piero; Villantoy-Pasapera, Arturo; Armas-Aguirre, Jimmy; Aguirre-Mayorga, Santiago (2021-01-01)
    In this paper, we proposed a method that allows us to formulate and evaluate process mining indicators through questions related to the process traceability, and to bring about a clear understanding of the process variables through data visualization techniques. This proposal identifies bottlenecks and violations of policies that arise due to the difficulty of carrying out measurements and analysis for the improvement of process quality assurance and process transformation. The proposal validation was carried out in a health clinic in Lima (Peru) with data obtained from an information system that supports the surgery block process. Finally, the results contribute to the optimization of decision-making by the medical staff involved in the surgery block process.

  • Reference Model to Identify the Maturity Level of Cyber Threat Intelligence on the Dark Web

    Santos, Ricardo Meléndez; Gallardo, Anthony Aguilar; Aguirre, Jimmy Armas (2021-01-01)
    In this article, we propose a reference model to identify the maturity level of the cyber intelligence threat process. This proposal considers the dark web as an important source of cyber threats causing a latent risk that organizations do not consider in their cybersecurity strategies. The proposed model aims to increase the maturity level of the process through a set of proposed controls according to the information found on the dark web. The model consists of three phases: (1) Identification of information assets using cyber threat intelligence tools. (2) Diagnosis of the exposure of information assets. (3) Proposal of controls according to the proposed categories and criteria. The validation of the proposal was carried out in an insurance institution in Lima, Peru, with data obtained by the institution. The measurement was made with artifacts that allowed to obtain an initial value of the current panorama of the company. Preliminary results showed 196 emails and passwords exposed on the dark web of which one corresponded to the technology manager of the company under evaluation. With this identification, it was diagnosed that the institution was at a “Normal” maturity level, and from the implementation of the proposed controls, the “Advanced” level was reached.

  • A Technological Solution to Identify the Level of Risk to Be Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Using Wearables

    Nuñovero, Daniela; Rodríguez, Ernesto; Armas, Jimmy; Gonzalez, Paola (2021-01-01)
    This paper proposes a technological solution using a predictive analysis model to identify and reduce the level of risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) through a wearable device. Our proposal is based on previous models that use the auto-classification algorithm together with the addition of new risk factors, which provide a greater contribution to the results of the presumptive diagnosis of the user who wants to check his level of risk. The purpose is the primary prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus by a non-invasive method composed of the phases: (1) Capture and storage of risk factors; (2) Predictive analysis model; (3) Presumptive results and recommendations; and (4) Preventive treatment. The main contribution is in the development of the proposed application.
