Greater Jakarta Commuter Line Modeling Project 2012

This year, as part of the modeling project major assignment of system modeling class, the class decided to raise the topic that are close to their daily activities, the Greater Jakarta Commuter Line. Universitas Indonesia has a dedicated intercity rail station of a train line that spans from Central Jakarta to the Bogor City in the south area , nickname “KA Jabotabek”, KA is an acronym for “Kereta Api” or Trains. It is targeted that in 2014, there will be 1.2 million passengers carried by this line

The model are complex and challenging with so many obstacles since they started building the model 2 months ago. However, they have successfully completed their model, and today they will be presenting their models in the SEMS Lab’s Simulation Gaming Area. Each groups will be presenting a specific problems that they want to solve based on the generic model they vuild, from maintenance scheduling, passenger queue, resource scheduling, train schedule, electrical supply and many other.

Therefore, congratulations to Class of 2009 on they achievement on developing a very complex discrete event model.

SEMShare : Operational Excellence

The SEMS Knowledge Sharing Program (SEMShare) continues with more topics regarding the industrial engineering world. This week,  one of our alumni, Mr. Ricky Tjok, gave a lecture regarding Operational Excellence in Organization. Slightly different from the last event, this time, students who are taking the QCAS class are mandatory to attend this discussion.

Mr. Ricky Tjok graduated from IE UI in 2008, and has been working for Accenture ever since. He has done some consulting project and now ready to pass on his experience to the younger generation of IE UI Student. The discussion start with a brief explanation of Accenture and what the company does. Then, Mr. Ricky continued by explaining the definition of  Operational Exellence. Because most of the attendants are from the QCAS class, Mr. Ricky then tried to link the term “Operational Excellence” to many quality improvement methods such as Six Sigma.

The Q&A session was alive with some question from the student regarding the topic, but the focus was on the Six Sigma project since they are currently conducting that kind of project for their Final Assignment in the QCAS class.

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.
