The Open House which takes place on Friday, 25 November 2016 aims to introduce LSAI all students of Industrial Engineering, not only to the one who already took the laboratory experiments.

Committee of the open house, Ulvatuz Zahro, said that LSAI trying to introduce industrial science in slightly different ways. The LSAI laboratory assistant utilizes the simulation tool to facilitate visitors to understand the simulation in the industrial world.

“We try to introduce it with interesting games that easy and fun to play, so it will tweak student curiosity,” the student of 2014 said.

The games introduced at this open house are Beer game Simulation and Operations Management game. Beer Game Simulation is a game which describes the bullwhip effect supply chain (supply chain dynamic behavior) in a company.

“On the other side, we adopted Operation Management Game from Industrial Engineering, University of Indonesia, to describe internal Corporate Business Processes,” explained Fadillia Rinarwastu, the other committee member.

The software introduced to the visitors were ARENA, ProModel, Powersim, and Vensim. These are the commonly used software in Industrial Company, especially for system modeling.

From the laboratory assistant evaluation, this event successfully attracted enthusiast of students. Proven by a total of 75 students attended the first event held by the LSAI.

“They arrange the layout interestingly. We can also get tips and tricks of the industrial world from the games,” Nadia Oktavia, one of the visitors, said.

Nadia hopes that LSAI programs could also be presented using a video to make it more attractive and enrich the visitor’s knowledge.

Meanwhile, Head of the Laboratory, Rahmi Yuniarti, ST., MT., said that this is the very first open house to be held by LSAI.

The implementation of LSAI open house is to show the students or lecturers in Industrial Engineering about the core of LSAI programs.

In near future, this open house will be the first big step for LSAI to open any possible cooperation with either small & medium enterprise or company. (and/mic)
