International Business Engineering (IBE) Department held the first webinar of Business Talk series that IBE has. The Webinar was held using zoom platform and discussed about “How Strategic Procurement Works in Jaguar”.
Sharply at 16.30, Indriati Bisono as the head of IBE Department gave a warm opening speech, followed by Hans Tanto as the chairman of Business Talk committee. Having an expert José Mantilla as the speaker, the purpose of this webinar is to give a clear understanding and way of thinking about business especially with respect to procurement of supply chain in a global scale reflecting from a big corporation.
José is an Ecuadorian who lives in England, right now working as Senior Regional Delivery Buyer in one of the famous automotive company in the world which is Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) United Kingdom. José started his session by explaining the concept of J-Lar that he has been in for 5 years. He also discussed about several integral processes in purchasing. In short, purchasing is a process to supply goods/services for the purpose of production activities. José stated that “In purchasing, you have the whole power and you have to be wise in spending it.” José taught us to be wise in managing the expenditure and it can be done by building the company strategy.
For José, building a strategy is one of the most important aspect in purchasing. He shared some methods that he usually uses in J-Lar, one of them is SWOT Analysis. Through SWOT, the company can understand about their Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats with regards to their position among the business environments. Doing this analysis, J-Lar can aim more efficient business results.
José argues that the purpose of purchasing is not only minimizing the expenditure costs, but also developing Team Value Management (TVM). TVM is a process which oriented on finding the best value to fulfil the customer orders. Thanks to TVM, the company can produce the legendary car which is currently used by Queen of Elizabeth efficiently and effectively.
As the José’s session finished, it was followed by Q&A (Question & Answer) session which is moderated by Nova Sepadyati. José was asked about J-Lar strategy to handle the situation of COVID-19. For him, J-Lar is very quick to adapt from the new issue. In example, while China faced lockdown, J-Lar found the new supplier from outside Chine soon. José highlighted the importance of having connections with multiple suppliers from different countries. Therefore, they won’t have difficulty to find other alternatives when things become unexpected.
Managing a company is not easy, especially for a big corporation such as J-Lar. From this webinar, we can realize the importance of strategy to maximize the results and efficiency of a company. Just like the idiom “Having an umbrella before raining”, so it’s better to have a strategy first rather than managing a business. Don’t wait until the results are not satisfying due to lack of preparations!!
The theme of this seminar was "Quality Management System in Automotive Industry". It discusses about the quality management system required and conducted in the automotive industry. The speaker that we invited was Dedy Siagian, Deputy Director of Quality Management form Mercedes-Benz Indonesia.
The seminar was divided into several parts. The first part is talking about the definition of quality. In this part, we discuss the general definition of quality and the difference of definition from the old meaning of quality with the new kind of quality. The second part is discussing the Quality Management System (QMS) which is standardized in ISO 9001:2015. Started in 1999, the QMS in the automotive industry was standardized with ISO/TS 16949 (1st edition) replacing QS-9000. Then in the later 2002, was replaced again with ISO/TS 16949 (2nd edition) as a supplement to ISO 9000:2000. Also in 2009, replaced again with the third edition as a supplement to ISO 9000:2008. The last changes made until now was in 2016 with using IATF 16949 (1st edition) as a supplement to ISO 9000:2015. This IATF is only applicable to the automotive industry.
The third part was discussing the Automotive Quality System. In this part, we discuss by using a Process Diagram where it explained from the input, the process, and to the output. This Quality System was made by several car manufacturers such as Ford, GM Motor, Chrysler, Renault, BMW, Daimler, and others. Next is that the goal of the IATF 16949. It consists of four goals: Continual improvement for high-quality products; defect prevention and produce sustainable volume; reduce of variation and waste in the supply chain; and delivery on time to the customer.
Quality management also had principles to follow. There are seven principles to follow in order to maintain good quality management. These principles are customer focus; continual improvement; leadership; evidence based on decision making; involvement of people; relationship management; and process and system approach. And from these principles, we also need the tools to measure our quality management, which are called Quality Core Tools. Quality Core Tools used in Mercedes-Benz consists of five tools, such as APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning); PPAP (Production Part Approval Process); FMEA (Failure Mode Effects Analysis); SPC (Statistical Process Control); MSA (Measurement System Analysis). Each of these tools consists of five levels of 18 part of component per level. And for one person to fully understand each of these tools will need at least two days of class or more.
We got 110 registered participants and 96 participants that came to the seminar which is already above the targeted amount of participants. The targeted amount of participants were around 75 participants because originally this was an offline seminar. Most of them are quite interested in the topic since the Q&A session was quite crowded with questions. Some questions were related to quality management topic but not all question were answered since the question was supposed to be asked to other division, as he said. Therefore, the seminar was a success!

Being an Entrepreneur is a trend that highly attracts millennial generation--in building a brand new business; or to develop an existing family business. An Entrepreneur has the privilege to be independent financially. However, there are unavoidable risks that need to be taken care of.
Character Development Class shared by Daniel Christian Tarigan, SH, MM - a lecturer and an initiator and director of Quick &' Clean Laundry Makassar which has a remarkable story. For years ago, the business almost bankrupt and Daniel wasn't able to pay half of his employees-yet in April 2018, Quick &' Clean Laundry won Indonesia Best Practices Laundry Awards (IBPLA) 2018. Daniel suggested that to be a successful Entrepreneur, you need to be able to predict what would be demanded by customers in the future. So, for example --you need to predict what will be a success in 5 years time, so if we are starting now, we'll expect the biggest benefit in 5 years time. It's too late to make a business predicting what will be a success in the present time.
The class gave new insight to the students, especially seeing Entrepreneur as one of the feasible solutions to be successful in this uncertain economy.
