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.

Cure fraction models are used when some units in the population of survival data are thought to survive the event of interest. Besides, modelling survival data with cure fraction provides a better fit. In this study, Mixture Cure Rate Modelling approach was briefly reviewed with some highlights on Non- Mixture and Defective Modelling approaches. Mixture Cure Rate Modelling assumes the population under study to be a mixture of susceptible and unsusceptible to the event of interest. Estimating cure fraction in the presence of either unobserved heterogeneity or zero-adjusted units were discussed. Mandatory assumption of the presence of cure fraction is a risk associated with this approach, which if wrongly done leads to misleading conclusion. The non-mixture modelling of cure fraction has a natural biological interpretation due to the process of its development. It is mostly associated with Bayesian statistical context. Estimating cure fraction using defective modelling approach makes no assumption of the presence of cure fraction; the cure fraction is estimated when the estimated value of the distribution shape parameter is negative. One of the shortcomings associated with this type of methodology is that, only few distributions can become defective. Zero-adjusted Frailty Mixture Cure Model is proposed
The European Union (EU) has recently established maximum limits for Ochratoxin A (OTA) in roasted and soluble coffee as well as for green coffee. Some countries have already established national limits for OTA in green coffee. Cup quality is a complex characteristic which depends on a series of factors such as the species or variety, environmental conditions, agronomical practices, processing systems, storage conditions, industrial processing, beverage preparation and taste of the consumer. This research was carried out to assess coffee storage & warehousing operations along the supply chain coffee from farmers/ cooperative warehouse up to Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) and Ethiopian Agricultural Commodities Warehouse Service Enterprise (EACWSE) branch warehouse as a case study in Sidama & Gedio Zones. The study employed descriptive analysis in assessing warehousing practices and problems of Coffee supply chain. Site observations and semi structured research were employed as research data collection. Interview questions were sent to various stakeholders, who gave their views on various warehousing practices and problems in accordance with how such problems impacted or influence their work. All the warehouses are substandard. The warehouses situations accelerate quality deteriorations due to moisture loss. This condition creates disputes and source of conflict because of coffee weight loss and compensation schemes between the top management and store managers. The field result demonstrates a lower level of material handling equipment uses. The warehouse operations are highly labour based. It was recommended that there should be effective strategy in adopting the FIFO principle, regulating trucks, introduction of weighbridge to speed up offloading process at the warehouses. The Coffee production and distribution traceability need to be supported by information communication technologies such as RFID
