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.

Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen that cause serious illness in vulnerable individuals such as infant, pregnant woman, elderly and immunocompromised patient. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of L. monocytogenes in chicken offal samples between wet market and supermarket. A total of 498 chicken offal samples (chicken gizzard=154, heart=131, Intestines=70, liver=143) from wet markets and supermarkets in Klang Valley, Malaysia were examined using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay and conventional plating method. Both PCR assay and plating method are equally reliable in detecting the presence of L. monocytogenes in chicken offal. The prevalence of Listeria spp. and L. monocytogenes from total samples was 7.63% and 5.62%, respectively. L. monocytogenes in chicken offal was found gizzard, liver, and heart at 3.21%, 2.00%, and 0.40%, respectively. L. monocytogenes contamination in samples from supermarkets was significantly higher than those in wet markets which might due to the pathogen psychrophilic characteristic. It can be concluded that multiplex PCR assay is a reliable method to detect L. monocytogenes in chicken offal and chilled chicken offal was at a higher risk of contamination
What is Six Sigma and how is its implementation? The studies on Six Sigma have been developing in recent decades, but the discussions on the topic are fragmented and thus challenging to understand comprehensively. This study aims at answering what Six Sigma is and how it is implemented in both manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries. To do this, we conduct a literature review on journal articles published from 2000 to 2017. Six Sigma has beena commonly used method among companies around the world for increasing product quality and operating profit. It is not only used in the manufacturing industry but also in non-manufacturing industries. The finding shows that Six Sigma is a method used to minimize the number of defect products and increase customer satisfaction as well as profit. In its development, Six Sigma is also used as a statistical tool, a managerial philosophy, and a business culture. Although it can be seen from various perspectives, the core of Six Sigma lies in its method, which is based on the scientific approach for developing efficiency and increasing operating profit. In general, the studies on Six Sigma have begun increasing since 2004. In the manufacturing sector, studies on Six Sigma are prevalent in automotive, electronic, and SME sectors and in the non-manufacturing sector, studies are common in the health and educational sectors
