Group Model Building: Policies for Stronger Shariah Banking in Indonesia

Part of research grants on Study on Shariah Banking Systems in Indonesia, SEMS Lab is conducting a Group Model Building Sessions to construct and confirm a policy model that we develop to analyze the impact of various policy in developing the shariah banking. There will be 2 sessions for developing the model. The first session has been conducted today focusing on policymakers and academics to give an overview of the current state of shariah banking and how to foster their growth compared with the traditional banking systems.

We are using system dynamics as the modeling tools, and the first discussion started by playing group games “living loops” for learning the concept of causal loop diagrams. The primary loop of our model is presented and ignited very lively discussions of the what has been done, the future plans and revisions on the relationships of the model variables.

We would like to thank all participants who accepted our invitations and already give us a valuable improvement from our base model.

Workshop on Data Analytics and Visualization

Data Modeling and Visualization is one of the branches in our optimization research. Our new research groups, Signifier Analytics, has been established to foster the development of knowledge and experience on how data can turn to insights. Two of our prominent researchers, Komarudin and Aziiz Sutrisno, shared their experience on a half-day workshop. Pak Komarudin talked about his experiences as a data scientist for a mining company in Indonesia, where he must predict the weather for the following weeks of operations based on previous year data. Pak Aziiz shared his experiences in analyzing social media for trends and how to best visualizes these data for giving insights.

The workshop is conducted in two waves, one for our students and one for external publics. The external workshop is conducted at Kekini Co-Working Space, Cikini, Jakarta

SEMS Play Day!

As part of our research in Serious Simulation Games or SSG, we are testing two of our serious games for public feedback. We called this event SEMS Play Day.

The first game that we are testing is the Project Management Game or PMG, and the second game is MAGPort SSG. PMG has a new redesign board to make it more portable, and MAGPort or Multi-Actor Game for Port Development is our new game that for the first time considering a multi-actor scenario.

SEMS PlayDay 18 (2)

The participants provide very valuable feedbacks into the design and delivery of both games. They all appreciate the use of Serious Simulation Games for Learning.

We will be conducting more PlayDay Event in the future. So be sure to wait for our announcement.

Introductory SD Workshop on Modeling Fiscal Policy for Sustainable Development

SEMS in collaboration with PT Makara Mas (Holding Company of Universitas Indonesia) conducted an introductory system dynamics workshop on modeling sustainable development for Fiscal Policy Agency – Ministry of Finance, Government of Indonesia. The workshop was part of Low Carbon Support, provided by the United Kingdom (UK) for the Ministry of Finance, especially the Centre for Climate Change Financing and Multilateral Policy (PKPPIM) in the Fiscal Policy Agency. PKPPIM are tasked to recommend a low carbon fiscal policies especially starting from the national budget 2015. This is why they needed a more integrated modeling tool to be able to evaluate green fiscal policy impacts.

FPA has already a strong group of economic models that are based on IO Models, SAM, and CGE, however since the questions of green policy is multi-dimensions with multi-sectoral approach, they feel that they need to have a more adaptive model to answer these questions.

The workshop was conducted for 5 days in the 2nd week of February, ranging from the basics of systems thinking and system dynamics, group dynamics, simple model building and closed by discussion on future models development of a new “green fiscal policy” model.

Beer Game Simulation at Astra Honda Motor AHM

In order to introduce the basic concept of Supply Chain Management for all its Dealers, PT Astra Honda Motor AHM asked SEMS Lab to conduct Beer Game Simulation. The Beer Game Serious Simulation Gaming (SSG) is perfect interactive way to have a common understanding of supply chain challenges (With of course No Beer drinking involved). Approximately 67 dealers were trained on September 10, 2014 at PT AHM Tipar Cakung. The facilitators team was lead by Mr. Hariyanto Salim MSIE, CSCP that consist of 1 Game Master, and 10 Game Companion for each Game Board.
Even though it is a classic game, the beer game was still an eye opener for all the participants, who are all practitioner and very expert in the field.
