Final test of system dynamics class 2012 presentation is conducted today with each participants presenting their assignment of rebuilding model from the collections of paper from SD Conferences.
Congratulations for all participants for a job well done.
Today we started to upgrade some of our lab software by installing Powersim Studio 9 to replace our Studio 2005.
We also add a collection of new modeling tools such as Anylogic University Version a multi approach modeling software based on Java, Decision Tools Suites for enhancing our Financial Modeling capabilities and SIMA Pro a Life Cycle Analysis software to support sustainability analysis in our lab.
We hope to expand the field of our research with this new tools.
LKTI the first and prominent National Industrial Engineering Competitions in Indonesia is current underway in Industrial Engineering Department. This year topics is Green Manufacturing, in which 25 teams from all over Indonesia, compete in 3 Stages of Competition, starting from the 1st stage of theoretical capability, 2nd stage of simulation analysis and the 3rd stage of case study analysis with real case study.
SEMS facilitates 5 teams to compete in our lab, playing a simulator of a manufacturing company that has challenge of trade off between growth and economic impacts. The simulator was develop by team of scientific committee which in majority consist of SEMS lab assistants. Good luck for all participants and good job for all committees.
Industrial Engineering Department, Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa State University (UNTIRTA) from Banten Province is conducting Systems Thinking Refreshment Course as part of their Lecturer Development Program at our lab. As you might already aware, UNTIRTA has recently changed is status from private university to state university for new Banten Province at west side of Java. Previously, it was managed by prominent state steel industry: Krakatau Steel.
The refreshment course mostly discuss about teaching systems thinking for industrial engineering students, the current state of systems thinking and system dynamics applications and research, and a hands on session regarding the use of software to teach systems thinking. The one day course attracted more than 15 lecturers from the IE program.
System Dynamics Modeling Workshop is the first of (hopefully) many workshops conducted by Systems Engineering, Modeling, and Simulation (SEMS) Laboratory. The workshop centered on the modeling of System Dynamics as a tool to create a representation of many complex matters in the real world. Throughout the workshop, the participants learned the concept of System Thinking, Stock and Flow Diagram, Conceptualization with Causal Loop Diagram, and System Dynamics modeling with PowerSim. The workshop lasted for 3 days from Moncay, August 2nd to Wednesday, August 4th. The workshop consist of 20 participants from 2007, 2008, and 2009 students of TI UI. Mr. Akhmad Hidayatno, Mr. Armand Omar, and Aziiz Sutrisno are the instructors of this interactive workshop.
