Understanding Humanitarian Logistics through “LogicHub 2.0”
Yesterday, Kummara presented a game session for leaders and specialists from government and affiliated organizations involved in urban logistics and transportation management operations for “Urban Logistics & Land Transportation Management Workshop” in Bandung. This 3-days workshop organized by National University of Singapore and Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs with the support of Temasek Foundation International.
For the game session, leaders and specialists played LogicHub 2.0, the second version of LogicHub which first presented in last year’s “Urban Logistics & Land Transportation Management Workshop”. LogicHub is designed by Rio Fredericco (Kummara), Eko Nugroho (Kummara), and Dr. Robert De Souza (NUS TLI-AP) as an expendable interactive learning framework to support learning process related to urban logistics and transportation management.
In LogicHub 2.0, players act as experts from different countries that help a disaster area. They need to decide where to build their warehouse so they can deliver goods based on survivor’s demand as fast as possible. By implementing MCDM/A (Multi Criteria Decision Making/Analysis), players can make the best decision regarding their warehouse location using different parameters, such as distance, congestion, and cost. For 2 hours, 60 participants actively involved in the game and competed to be the best experts.
Through LogicHub, learning process about urban logistics and transport management hopefully will be easier to learn and motivate people to create more solution for various logistic challenges in Indonesia.
