Student Achievements

Competitions


Our students from the Diploma in Business Process & Systems Engineering (BZE) put their diploma training and knowledge to the test at various national and international competitions, with outstanding results.  Their excellent performance when benchmarked against the best in the country as well as on the world stage, is testimony to the highly relevant and rigorous training that they receive in their BZE diploma course.

These were some of the competitions in which they excelled:

Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors’ Award 2015
BZE students activated their innovative prowess by inventing the "Anti Riot CID Shield", which won a Commendation award at the competition. This unique police shield comes with powerful LED strobe lights to momentarily stun or blind the offenders (while also lighting up the place), as well as a built-in camera which can capture and relay footages to a control centre, thereby allowing police commanders to monitor the ground situation remotely and in real time.


Jun Hong, Si Yi and Ying Jie, with their supervisor and Anti Riot CID Shield

SiPi Innovation Challenge 2014
The business plan conceived by the team from BZE clinched the Gold medal in this competition. Their innovative business plan revolves around an innovative product, the "Dual Assistive Device (DAD) Smart Walker", which is essentially a walking stick that can be expanded into two sticks for better stability, and then collapsed again for easy storage. They have set up a company, called Sozo Innovations, specialising in designing rehabilitative products for the elderly, thereby tapping into a growing niche silver market.


Darren Teo, Sharon Ngo and Florence Quek with their supervisor

LES Asia-Pacific Student Business Plan Competition 2014
Taking part for the first time, the team from BZE applied the business knowledge they had acquired from their diploma course, to clinch the Gold medal, to win Gold medal in the 5th LES Asia-Pacific Student Business Plan Competition (Singapore), beating participating teams from local universities and other polytechnics.

As the top team from Singapore, they then represented the Republic at the International finals during the 5th LES Asia-Pacific Regional Conference held in Korea in November 2014, competing against top teams from universities in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and India, and taking home a Bronze medal.


The victorious BZE business team

StartUp@Singapore 2014
The team from BZE emerged 1st Runner-up (Silver medal) -- one of only 2 top prizes awarded -- in the annual Business Venture Challenge (Open Category) of the StartUp @ Singapore competition held in May 2014, finishing ahead of more than 150 formidable teams from the ASEAN region, India, and Europe, but edged out only by the team from National University of Singapore (NUS). The TP team also emerged Champions in the gruelling "90 second elevator pitch".

The victory is testimony to the quality of training which BZE students receive in their course, the Diploma in Business Process & Systems Engineering. From honing their business financial plans, creating their prototypes, and doing validating testing at hospitals & hospices, to meeting up with business partners and venture capitalists, they have proven their multidisciplinary capabilities, theoretical excellence, creativity, oratorical skills, engineering knowledge, IT skills, and business acumen.

Projects

NLB Project Improvement 

 
This project, done by students from our diploma in collaboration with the National Library Board, sought to enhance the material (print and audio-visual) supply chain distribution process among public libraries in Singapore.  The distribution process was carefully analysed and evaluated using the Six Sigma approach, and a simulation was also done to forecast the amount of time that would be consumed by certain crucial processes within the distribution network.  The project has resulted in cost savings of about S$500,000 annually, while helping the library to meet its targeted 24-hour turnaround time.

Process Improvement in Operations System of Asia Logistics Department

 
This project was done by our students in collaboration with the Asia Logistic Department of Mobile Devices, Motorola Mobility Inc.  The aim was to optimise the processing of orders received by the company, by using a 3D simulation and the Six Sigma approach.  The key problems and areas for improvement were identified, and new process improvement solutions were proposed and implemented.  Ultimately, the project managed to reduce the company’s total processing time by 170 hours per month and the amount of goods in transit was also reduced by a whopping S$2.4 million in value terms, thereby freeing up cash flow.  On the whole, it resulted in a 64% improvement in productivity.

New Sub Business Units (SBU) in Hays Singapore

 
This project was done by our students in collaboration with Hays Specialist Recruitment Ltd, a leading global specialist recruitment group.  The objectives of the project were to conduct market research to identify new Sub Business Units (SBU) in the company, and to develop business plans for the launch of the two SBUs, using a SWOT analysis and PUGH Decision Matrix.  The findings and proposals were subsequently implemented by Hays Singapore, with the two SBUs launched with an estimated combined placement of S$550,000.

“ONESTOP SG” mobile app

 
The project involves the development of a smart phone application for the Singapore Land Authority, called “ONESTOP SG”.  The app is able to suggest local itineraries for users, in terms of places of interest to visit or food trails to follow – for individuals, family or friends.  It also provides the opening hours of these places, a 4-day weather forecast, and updates about any special events.  Another batch of our students subsequently improved the app and a second generation version, called “SG WALKER” was produced.  New features included an Augmented Reality (AR) function, which allows users to access information about a particular attraction as well as promotions & discounts available there, by pointing their mobile phone cameras at a hotspot.  Users can also customise their tour, by picking selected attractions and the app will then plan the ideal route for them!

Business Process Improvement for Schenker-HP VMI

 
This project, done by our students in collaboration with DB Schenker Singapore and HP Alexandra Manufacturing (HPAM), aimed to optimise DB Schenker’s operating processes to shorten the HP-VMI Turn Around Time (TAT).  The Lean 6-Sigma method was used to analyse the current situation while warehouse activities were simulated using Flexsim software to help identify the problem areas.  With DB Schenker’s approval, our students then implemented their proposals, which included the automatic generation of delivery reports.  Ultimately, this project helped the company to save 3,300 man-hours per year (equivalent to 2 staff) and shave off S$58,605 from cost expenditure.  It also saved 455,244 pieces of paper per year.

  • Process Improvement lab
  • Systems Engineering lab
  • Data Analysis lab
  • Business Process lab

 

Diploma Student Club

Our diploma club, called the “BiZEn Club” organises regular student activities to foster bonding and camaraderie among BZE students.  These activities include:

1) BiZEn Freshies Camp

This camp is organised every semester to welcome new students into our BZE family, to foster friendships, and familiarise them to campus life.


 

2) Community Service activities

BiZEn organises various community service activities, which gives BZE students the chance to do their bit for society, while gaining valuable exposure to the needs of the less fortunate in society.  An example of one such activity was the “BiZEn GIFTS – YMCA Proms @ the Park” event held at the Botanical Gardens.

 

3) Hosting Overseas Students

BZE students also host visiting students from foreign schools, such as Japanese students from the Kagoshima National College of Technology in 2013.  Besides mentoring them through the school curriculum, BZE students also host them on outings and social activities, forging new friendships and learning more about each other’s culture in the process.

 

4) Campus Relay

BiZEn rallies all BZE students in taking part in the annual Campus Relay, a polytechnic-wide event in which staff and students from various courses, schools and departments come together to participate in a round-the-clock relay run around the campus, fostering camaraderie and teamwork in the process.
