El CIO participará en las Jornadas de Innovación en Calzado


El CIO, uno de los catorce institutos universitarios de investigación en matemáticas de España, estará presente en las Jornadas de Innovación en Calzado “Estrategias de Marketing y Comercialización para el Sector del Calzado” que se celebrarán el 26 de septiembre, de 9:00 a 13:15 horas, en la Cámara de Comercio de Elche (Parque Industrial). 

En estas jornadas, se pretende reflexionar sobre el futuro del retail del sector calzado, introduciendo la importancia de incorporar las nuevas estrategias de marketing y comercialización para el sector del calzado.  El investigador del CIO y profesor de la Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche Alex Rabasa intervendrá de 11:30 a 11:45 horas con la ponencia “Exprimiendo los datos desde el sector del calzado”.

Esta actividad es de carácter gratuito y ha sido organizada por el Cluster Calzado Innovación (CCI), con la colaboración de INESCOP y FICE.

Abstract. Programmers use various software development artifacts in their work, such as programming environments, design documents, and programming codes. These software artifacts can be studied and improved based on usability and User eXperience (UX) factors. In this paper, we consider programmers to be a specific case of users and analyze different elements that influence their experience in this specific context. We conducted a systematic literature review of papers published over the last ten years related to 1) the definition of the Programmer eXperience (PX); 2) the PX, UX, and usability factors regarding the programming environments, design documents, and programming codes; and 3) sets of heuristics to evaluate the software development artifacts mentioned before. We analyzed 73 articles, and the results obtained show that: 1) the important elements that influence the PX are the motivation of programmers and the choice of tools they use in their work, such as programming environments; 2) most of the identified studies (59%) aimed to evaluate the influence of the PX, UX, and usability on programming environments; 3) the majority of the studies (70%) used methods such as usability tests and/or heuristic evaluation methods; and 4) four sets of heuristics are used to evaluate software development artifacts in relation to programming environments, programming languages, and application programming interfaces. The results suggest that further research in this area is necessary to better understand and evaluate the concept of the PX.

Performance evaluation through DEA benchmarking adjusted to goals (2019). Omega, 87, 150-157.

Abstract. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is extended to the evaluation of performance of organizations within the framework of the implementation of plans for improvements that set management goals. Managers usually set goals without having any evidence that they will be achievable at the moment of conduct- ing performance evaluation or, on the contrary, they may set little too unambitious goals. Using DEA for the benchmarking ensures an evaluation in terms of targets that both are attainable and represent best practices. In addition, the approach we propose adjusts the DEA benchmarking to the goals in order to consider the policy of improvements that was pursued with the setting of such goals. From the method- ological point of view, the models that minimize the distance to the DEA strong efficient frontier are extended to incorporate goal information. Specifically, the models developed seek DEA targets that are as close as possible to both actual performances and management goals. To illustrate, we examine an example that is concerned with the evaluation of performance of public Spanish universities.

Title: “DEA analysis of network processes (Network DEA): Models and applications”

Date: Thursday, October 10, 12:30 a.m.

Localication: CIO Seminar Room (Torretamarit Building)

Abstract. Conventional data wrap analysis (DEA) considers the production process as a black box, that is, as a unique process that performs the transformation of inputs into outputs. There are, however, DEA approaches that open that box and distinguish within it different threads, each with its own inputs and outputs, and usually with intermediate product flows between the threads. A fundamental characteristic, then, of this type of Network DEA (NDEA) approaches is that each thread has its own technology. DEA models, both multiplier and envelope type, can be formulated for these types of situations. There are variants regarding the notation used as well as the treatment of intermediate products. There are radial approaches, directional distance function (DDF), Network SBM, etc. You can also consider shared inputs and undesirable outputs. With regard to applications, these are numerous and range from the transport sector to the banking sector, hotel sector, sports, etc.
