Salam Budi Luhur …….!
Akademi Sekretari Budi Luhur conducted a factory visit to PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka (Sukabumi Factory) on Wednesday 11 December 2019. The factory is located at Jl. Raya Siliwangi Km 28, Kutajaya Village, Cicurug District, Sukabumi Regency. The company markets and manufactures isotonic drinks and low-fat snacks. Its superior products are Pocari Sweat, Ion Water, Oronamin C and healthy snacks Soyjoy. This factory visit activity is one of the activities to introduce students to the world of work and to apply knowledge from the Introduction to Business and E-Business courses to provide an overview of a company’s business processes and good and disciplined work methods.
This activity was attended by 2018 students, in total of 43 students and they were accompanied by Ms. Fenti Sofiani, S.Pd., M.M. as the Director and Mr. Achmad Syarif, S.T., M.Kom. as the Head of the Study Program.
The participants were welcomed by the promoter of PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka and given the opportunity to take pictures in front of the factory before entering the building. The introduction of PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka was held at Brilliant Hall on the 3rd floor by watching a video of the company profile and the delivery of material about the production process of isotonic drinks; Pocari Sweat. After delivering the material, participants were given a quiz question using the tablet device application. This device has been provided by a team from PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka.
The next activity was to tour the factory to see the process of production of isotonic drinks Pocari Sweat (in various sizes of bottles and sachets) and Oraminamin C. These production activities have used artificial intelligence technology machines (Artificial Intelligence) not only in making bottles, filling bottles, and packing bottles in cardboard but there are also machines from 1991 that are still in use today.
The next activity is a 3-dimensional game Exploreion Adventure at Exploreion Theater. The concept of this 3-dimensional game is the participants are required to move to collect ions to save people who lack of ions. However, this activity was canceled due to heavy rain and lightning so that the network was disrupted. The participants went straight to the Merchandise Shop and got a memento from PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka. This last activity was the closing and gave an opportunity for student representatives Nadya Rachmadilla Putri to express their gratitude and the impression of the message following this activity. Furthermore, giving a memento from the Akademi Sekretari Budi Luhur by Ms. Fenti Sofiani, S.Pd., M.M. to representatives of PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka.
Hopefully the Factory Visit activity will benefit the students of Akademi Sekretari Budi Luhur in adding insight and knowledge about the world of work and business processes. This experience will be a provision for them to enter the workforce. Aamiin.
