ITS Campus, ITS News – The brilliant achievement was once again brought home by the students of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS). This time, the students from Civil Engineering Department successfully won two first prize in the annual competition of 4.0 Lean Construction Competition (K2R) held by Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) on Saturday (5/10).

The first prize was earned in the category of Total Performance and Minimal Waste. With the acquisition of the two first prize made ITS crowned as the general champion. The team consisted of Zhafira Aulia KA (undergraduate student batch of 2016), Davin Atmaja L (undergraduate student batch of 2017), William Bunkharisma (undergraduate student batch of 2017), M Arif Ramapramudya (undergraduate student batch of 2018), Alfya Natasya D (undergraduate student batch of 2018), Erfandi Zen V (postgraduate student batch of 2019), and Freedy Kristawan (postgraduate student batch of 2018).

Those seven students must compete tightly with other participants to design and process construction prototypes with the main material of lego (small plastic toys that can be designed to be anything, red).

4.0 K2R is a competition with the focus on implementing lean construction. It emphasizes the efficiency of total performance and minimum waste of the construction. This annual event since 2016 aims to increase the understanding of Indonesian people about lean construction.

Freedy Kristawan, one of the Ascarya team members, said that their team was divided into two positions. One person acted as the main contractor, while six other members became the subcontractors. Freedy and the team were given a design drawing that would be processed in collaborative pull planning. “In this case, we also have to design building prototype activities based on the plan,” said the young man from Surabaya.

Furthermore, Freedy and the team noted the material needed and buy the required materials. Also, they did not forget to install the existing lego material until the prototype was successfully realized. Last but not least, the total performance, the waste material (excess lego when ordering or not installed), the installation errors, and other specified violations were counted by the Ascarya team.

The innovation made by the team led by Zhafira was during the installation of the layers, where the team did it quickly and precisely. In fact, according to Zhafira, there was no waste material produced by the team’s design construction. This also happens because they did not do the construction per layer, but rather maximize the number of floors that can be worked on. “So our team completed three floors in a single process,” he said enthusiastically.

Zhafira added that coordination was the most important thing in this achieved champion. Before ordering the materials, they did an internal checking between the seven members with the number of legos to be installed. “So, in the end, we succeeded in designing a construction consisting of ten floors,” he concluded proudly.

Cahyono Bintang Nurcahyo ST MT, the Civil Engineering lecturer who guided ITS Ascarya team

Meanwhile, Cahyono Bintang Nurcahyo ST MT as the team supervisor stated that he was very grateful for the achievement of general champions by the Ascarya team. He revealed that success was the result of hard work and team commitments that have been through the selection and intense practice for the past two months. “I appreciated their enthusiasm to achieve the best results this year,” said the lecturer who is familiarly called Bintang.

Bintang revealed that Civil Engineering Department intended to give the best in K2R this year. Compared to the previous year’s competition, the team had to struggle to overcome technical and mental obstacles with relatively tight preparation. However, thanks to the availability of the question bank and the successful knowledge transfer from the previous team, the above obstacles can be overcome.

He believed that the Civil Engineering Department will always try to give the best effort in each competition joined. Therefore a team regeneration is needed which also aimed to transfer knowledge every year. “In 2018, we won first place in the Total Performance category and third place in the Minimum Waste category. In the future, we are confident that can maintain and increase achievements in various other competitions,” Bintang concluded. (dik/gayatri/ITS Public Relation)
