Fathurahman, one of team members, said that this achievement was also the work of their professor who mentored them on the writing of this paper, especially Drs. Haryono M.Com. "Besides mentoring, he helped us provide the data we need for our paper. Without his help, it would be much harder to finish the paper," he said on Wednesday (12/02).
