SEMS Lab conducted one-day workshop on Financial Modeling by inviting one of our alumni, Iko Putera, as the instructor and facilitator for the workshop. While he was students, Iko final projects was developed “the financial game”, a management flight simulator for assisting the process of learning of simple balance sheets and financial performance. The game simulated the condition of a small company, developed using system dynamics software and linked to spreadsheets software.
Now, he has accumulated diverse experiences on developing and delivering financial models for various projects and clients, as a consultant for various consulting organizations, so we were very happy that Iko is willing to share his knowledge and experiences with us.
To mark the start of SEMS Knowledge Sharing Program (SEMShare), we invite Ms. Amalia Suzianti to lecture on the topic of Industrial Engineers and Innovation Process: Opening Possibilities for new Research. Ms Amalia has joined our faculty staff after finishing his Dr.Ing from Germany and also after spending time there as professional working for Accenture.
The discussion started by introducing the various definitions of innovations, and how it could be applied into not just product, but also processes and organizations. We also discuss that the word innovation has been loosely translated by most people, however these translation fails to includes certain characteristics that innovation could be recognized, which is new substantial change for the target of innovation implementation, either be the target market or the target define by the innovation. We also discuss the difference between innovations and inventions, which basically innovations concerns with the whole process of creating and implementing of inventions.
The discussion continues on the process of innovations, and how each of the process or combinations of process could opened up new possibilities of research for IErs, from idea generating methods, concept development, product design to finally deployment. The Q&A is alive with so many questions regarding innovations and different approaches of innovation.
SEMShare is a regular program from SEMS Lab in which we invites experts for open discussion within small groups to expand our horizon of thinking.
