Revista Ingenierías Universidad de Medellín is a multidisciplinary publication in the field of engineering. The journal disseminates research results that contribute to regional and global development from an engineering perspective. The journal prioritizes the reception of products derived from research projects for their elaboration and adequate dissemination among academics, students, and other interested groups in society.
At Revista Ingenierías Universidad de Medellín, we are aware of the need for adequate circulation of scientific knowledge in our region and the need to provide elements for the analysis and solution of specific problems.
However, we recognize the need for the widest possible circulation within academic communities. Therefore, starting in 2021, we strongly encourage authors to submit the final approved version of their articles in English for publication. Additionally, our journal maintains its tradition of open access circulation, without any charges for submission or publication.

- SYSTEMIC APPROACH TO THE INFLUENCE OF CLIMATE ON THE DYNAMICS OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF PASTO, COLOMBIApor Luis Carlos Ortega Chamorro el agosto 16, 2023 a las 12:00 am
The impact of climate change in intermediate cities is a topic of growing interest on Latin America. This study analyzed the influence of climate in the city of Pasto, Colombia. Based on several land use planning methodologies, we defined the main urban elements that affect the city’s territorial dynamics. Subsequently, we employed a structural analysis to identify the main relationships among the urban elements. Using direct and indirect classification based on the method of cross-impact matrices applied multiplication for a classification (MICMAC) and the Delphi method, we determined the dependencies and influences of the urban elements integrated in a systemic model of 12 positive and 8 negative loops that relate climate, energy, and culture as power elements over the city’s economy, health, education, environment, functionality, demography, and security, all of which are articulated by governance as the key element, with results applicable to other cities in the region.
- Interpretative structural model development for the identification of key factors for implementing Lean Healthcarepor Erika Tatiana Ruiz Orjuela el marzo 1, 2023 a las 12:00 am
The Lean philosophy has demonstrated benefits in organizations of different business sectors through the elimination of waste and the generation of value; research conducted in this field has sought to identify the critical success factors for its implementation. The objective of thisstudy is to understand the relationships between the factors of Health Care Providing Institutions in Colombia, through surveys with experts, and then classify them according to their power of influence and dependence using the Interpretative Structural Modelling- ISM methodology. The results of this research contribute to identifying the key factors for the implementation of Lean Healthcare in the Colombian context: Management commitment, management understanding, and employee training, and finally recommendations and future research work are presented.
- Using a Logit Model to Predict Plurality of Bidders in Public Tenderspor Susana María Valencia Rodríguez el febrero 24, 2023 a las 12:00 am
State contracting is a relevant issue for society’s participants, because through this mechanism State resources are invested, seeking the fulfillment of development plan objectives, which in turn are synonymous with collective progress. Thus, a brief theoretical explanation is given of the enabling requirements of financial capacity that are demanded in the specifications, with the aim of having clarity of the expected behavior in the proposed statistical model. Subsequently, the description of the methodology used in the research and the theoretical approach that supports the development of the proposed regression models are presented, the validation tests carried out are presented, and the model with which the probability of a plurality of suppliers is predicted according to the enabling requirements of financial capacity is presented.
