Magang/ Internship

Two UII Industrial Engineering students have just completed an internship program at PT Yamaha Electronic Manufacturing Indonesia (YEMI), one of the companies that collaborates with UII Industrial Engineering. They are Rona Sutra Dewangga Dyah Utami and Azzahra Tiffany Rachmad. The series of internship programs ended with a monitoring session where students presented the results of their projects in front of mentors, managers, and supervisors.

The internship lasted for 3 months, starting from March 12 – June 12 at PT YEMI located in Pasuruan, East Java. Before starting the internship, they prepared themselves by preparing all the necessary files and looking for as many references as possible. “Since the collaboration with YEMI was the first time, we had to be active in finding references. In addition, we made several activity targets to be achieved during the internship,” said Tiffany.

Magang/ Internship

During their internship, they were involved in various important activities in the company. “It just so happened that my and Tiffany’s last CVs were related to SAP ERP as ERP Lab. assistants, so we were placed in the Production Control Department and Procurement Department. There we had the opportunity to dive directly into all transactions in the company by applying internal systems and SAP,” said Rona. In addition, they were also assigned to look for improvements (kaizen) both technically and non-technically, the results of which they will present at the end of the activity. Rona and Tiffany emphasized that the knowledge they gained during college was very helpful in undergoing internships, especially SCM, ERP, PPIC, and Programming Logic courses.

Despite gaining a lot of valuable experience, they also faced some challenges during their internship. They need to make adjustments to the new environment, especially since Yamaha is known as a company with high discipline. In addition, there are many technical languages that have never been learned in lectures, as well as different implementations from lecture theories to the reality in the field.

Rona feels very grateful to be able to participate in this internship program. “Even though we were placed in the eastern region which was the first batch there, the knowledge gained was really amazing. We can dive into the office according to our passion, it is more challenging, but the experience gained is worth it.” Tiffany added, “In general, everything is good, but there are some things that are unique to YEMI, such as the implementation of 5S, kaizen, corei, and horenso. Also, the working environment at YEMI is very positive. They collaborate with each other to achieve a common goal.”

For other students who are interested in joining the internship program, Rona gave some messages and tips. First, make sure you have a company, passion, and career goal in mind as early as possible. Second, find out as much information as possible about the company offered by the program. Third, prepare all the requirements and files needed. Finally, prepare mentally to be ready if you are placed in a different company. Tiffany added, “prepare your CV well and show your best version during the interview, starting from your attitude and language arrangement in answering questions.”

Through this internship program, Rona and Tiffany not only gained valuable work experience, but were also able to apply academic knowledge in real situations, which will certainly be a valuable provision in their future career journey.

Kuliah Tamu/ Guest Lecture Colorant Industry

Industrial Engineering UII held a guest lecture on Friday (14/6). The activity took place online with the theme “Safe Materials For Packaging In Colorant Industry”. A total of 160 students who took the Chemistry of Materials course attended the event in the morning.

Jantung Hilmy as the MC opened the guest lecture by reading the schedule of the event. He then gave a little introduction by reading the CV of the speaker, Daniar Rianawati S.T. She is the Purchasing Department Head of PT DIC Astra Chemicals. Before getting into the presentation of the material, Daniar first showed the Company Profile video of PT DIC Astra Chemicals.

“Our company is a manufacturer of coloring materials, such as for plastics, textiles, and other applications, all from us. So, basically, where there is color, there is PT DIC Astra,” she said.

Colorant and Packaging

Colorant is a substance that is added to change the color of a material or surface. Based on its form, colorant is categorized into five types, which are dry color, liquid color, paste dispersion, masterbatch, and compounded color. In general, color consists of three main materials, including pigments, resins, and additives.

Packaging is the science, art, and technology to wrap or protect a product in the process of distribution, storage, sale, and use. “Packaging design is not just as simple as wrapping, but also considers various aspects, such as function, aesthetics, and needs. The choice of material is one that needs to be carefully considered.”

Safe Materials in Colorant Industry

Kuliah Tamu/ Guest Lecture Colorant Industry

“How do we know safe materials in the colorant industry? We must choose materials that do not contain prohibited ingredients. In addition, ensure that the dosage limitation is in accordance with regulations,” she explained. First, before approving the material, check the laboratory test results, especially related to the application you want to use. Second, check the actual content regularly because the quality of each batch may change. Furthermore, for some safe pigments, among others are Non/Selected Azo Pigment, Non Diarylide Pigment, and Non Heavy Metal Pigment.

After the presentation, Daniar held an interactive quiz session. Students who scored the highest points were rewarded with an e-wallet balance from her. Finally, the guest lecture was completed with a discussion and Q&A session.

Industrial Engineering Study Program, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Universitas Islam Indonesia held a public lecture on (8/6). The event was held in order to explore the knowledge of benefit cost analysis in the implementation of OSH. A total of 200 students who took Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) courses attended the event which took place via Zoom Meeting. The event with the theme “Cost Benefit Analysis of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Implementation” invited a resource person, namely Azjar Jhon Raghozt who is the PJK3 of PT Mawi Sarana Samawi with moderator Atyanti Dyah Prabaswari, S.T., M.Sc.

The resource person started the material session by re-discussing the definition of K3. Furthermore, he explained what the costs are when implementing OSH in a company. Examples of OHS implementation costs include the cost of preparing an Occupational Safety & Health plan, the cost of purchasing Work Protective Equipment and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and the cost of installing OHS signs. “Personal Protective Equipment includes safety helmets, eye protection, SCBA for diving activities, yes. There are ear plugs and ear muffs, respiratory protection, gloves, safety shoes, full body harness. There is a life vest, there is a safety vest, and there is an apron or shirt, yes, friends. That is one of the cost analyses that we have to budget for as well.” he said.

Then, he also explained that, “When we don’t implement OHS, there are some costs that are really very detrimental to the company, friends. Maybe the company only knows, oh, there is an accident, that’s it, there is already insurance. Whereas in the iceberg theory if we don’t analyze the third cost, there really is a huge loss even to the closure of the company.” he explained. In general, the only visible costs are accident and illness costs. In reality, there are many other costs that can cause damage, delays, and time losses if companies do not budget for OHS costs. Furthermore, there was a question and answer session to conclude the public lecture that morning.

Monthly Webinar 2 tentang Social Commerce oleh Agus Mansur

National Monthly Webinar of Industrial Engineering UII was held for the second time. The event on Friday (7/6) raised the theme “Social Commerce: A New Era For Digital-Based Business and Supply Chain Management Challenges”. The activity took place online via Zoom Meeting and was attended by 92 participants.

Akmal Faiq as the MC opened the afternoon activity by reciting basmalah and reading the program schedule. Then, Didin Dwi Novianto, S.T., M.LSCM, as the moderator gave a little introduction by reading the CVs of the speakers. 

“Social commerce has changed the conventional paradigm of online shopping, people are not only passive consumers but also become part of the sales process by interacting actively,” he said as an opening.

Monthly Webinar Social Commerce

Furthermore, the event entered the main session, which is the delivery of material by Dr. Ir. Agus Mansur, S.T., M.Eng.Sc IPU, Vice Dean for Resources of FTI UII. Social commerce itself has two main keywords, namely social interactions and user contributions. These two things distinguish social commerce from e-commerce. Social media is a platform that can make customers more “close” to the product. This is done through their features, such as comments, reviews, recommendations, and content sharing. In addition, online store features such as “Buy Now” and ads that appear will match the preferences of each customer.

The rise of social commerce certainly has an impact on the supply chain and product distribution. “There could be a lot of interest in social commerce, but not being able to meet the demand will be a boomerang,” he explained. Therefore, there are several things that need to be considered, namely how demand fluctuates from the influence of positive or negative comments on social media and the supply chain must have agile and responsive capabilities.

After the presentation, the moderator led a discussion and Q&A session with the participants. Finally, the event was finalized with a group photo as documentation.

Akmal Faiq Fadhillah Hidayat, one of Industrial Engineering UII students won the twibbon design competition at La Fête 2024. La Fête 2024 is one of the annual events to commemorate the anniversary of the French Language Education Student Association (HIPER) FBSB UNY. The 3rd place winner in the national twibbon competition received an award in the form of a certificate and coaching money. The event which took place on (31/05) was attended by all high school / vocational school students, university students and the general public in Indonesia with the theme “Une Odyssée Fantastique : A journey into wonder”. This success is clear evidence that UII Industrial Engineering students also excel in demonstrating creativity and innovation.

Akmal said that the road to victory in the twibbon competition began with preparing concepts related to adventure, fantasy, and magic. Therefore, it took a strong effort to explore his imagination deeply. After that, he started playing around with various editing applications to create stunning visuals. Nonetheless, Akmal still found some improvements to make his work even more stunning.

A supportive friendship environment helped Akmal during the competition process. There were several friends whom he asked to give suggestions on the design so that they could be taken into consideration. Meanwhile, many twists and turns occurred during the twibbon design competition process. However, this did not discourage him. He quickly imagined how to continue the design according to the previous concept. “The design was lost when there was a revision of the theme writing, but Alhamdulillah it was backed up, so the design was not completely lost,” he said.

The 2023 student admitted that he was grateful for the myriad of benefits from participating in the twibbon design competition. “I am very happy because it was the first time I won a competition while studying at UII, made new friends at UNY, improved my editing skills, and many more,” he said. He also advised other students who might want to follow in his footsteps, “Be confident in what you have done and don’t get hung up on the negative words of others.” he said.
