Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

Nowadays, manufacturing sustainability practices (MSP) have been embedded into daily manufacturing routines. The awareness on MSP have been improved remarkably since early 2000s worldwide where numbers of successful practices have been implemented and proven to be beneficial towards manufacturing firm’s (MF) overall performance. Although varies of practices could be chose to be implemented, it is questionable on the right practice for implementation in order to produce optimum outcome and performance boost. This question is important in ensuring firms’ capability to compete in current challenging market of industry revolution 4.0 (IR4.0). Inspired by this, several key MSP have been extracted by three methods; literature review; simple questionnaire survey; and input from six chosen industry experts. Once MSP list has been finalized and verified by the experts, fuzzy analytic hierarchical process (FAHP) is applied as the final step to enhance the MSP. The result from these analysis divided MSP into its main three pillars where only environmental sustainability (ES) practices could be classified into two division; comprehensive and long-term practices, while economic (ECS) and social sustainability (SS) has 5 and 10 practices respectively. Working towards MSP enhancement, FAHP has sorted ECS practices as the top priority before ES and SS practices. Is it agreed that MF with better economic state has more opportunity for better environmental and social future. Nevertheless, contradict with FAHP done, it is bad to totally leave SS practices because the trend showed that the voice of society influence has significantly increased. Malaysian MF have to increase awareness on SS importance for better future.
River is as a channel that is naturally formed. One of the river shape that is interesting to be studied is meander river. The condition of river morphology and characteristic that are river moving direction, meander symptom, local scouring danger, and the surface geology condition that indicates river cliffs need indirect protection so the current velocity can flow safely. The usage of nail poles as the river cross crib structure for the protector of clifft and indirect scouring has been more applied, however, there are many function failures of nail poles crib structure construction. This research intends to investigate the most effective of crib formation that is used in three variations of turn starting from the sharp, medium, and normal turn. In addition, as is the modelling in this research, it will be known how is the flow pattern and scouring before and after to be installed the crib on the three variation of turns. The result shows that the perpendicular crib formation is the most effective in decreasing the scouring and sedimentation that is happened
