Indonesian Journal of Statistics and Its Applications
Determining the segmentation and positioning of the lecturers in selecting the thesis supervisor is very important to do. It is because, with this information, the supervision process in thesis writing can run well. This study intends to analyze the segmentation and positioning of lecturers related to determine the thesis supervisor using the Clusterwise Bilinear Spatial Multidimensional Scaling Model (CBSMSM) method. The data used is survey data for fifth-semester bachelor students of the
... 2020 academic year of the Department of Computer Science, Pakuan University. One hundred sixty-one student observations provide an assessment of 10 attributes regarding the characteristics of 32 lecturers of the department. Furthermore, the estimation of the segment coordinate parameters, lecturer coordinates, dimensions, and attributes simultaneously uses the alternating least square (ALS) algorithm. The number of segments and dimensions are selected based on the smallest sum square error (SSE) value for combining segments and other dimensions. As a result, we get four segments and four dimensions with an SSE value of 4864.003. Furthermore, the department can use this result to illustrate student assessments of their lecturers' characteristics regarding thesis supervision.
