From the content of this article, it can be seen that social network analysis concept can be applied with various kinds of analysis and it also can measure in terms of quantity. Therefore, this concept will be useful in analyzing descriptive data in concrete term. This article found out that the social network analysis concept can be applied in finding good performance and sustainable of collaborative process by focusing on two factors; network closure and network heterogeneity.
