Technical visit to Hong Kong Disneyland
By Ir Dr Irene POON

The LT Division organised a technical visit to Hong Kong Disneyland in the afternoon on 15 October 2019. The visit was divided into two sessions and was led by two Industrial Engineering Project Managers, Ms Emily Ying and Mr Jerry Yan.

The visit was a valuable chance for the participants to understand how the theme park engineers created such dream-weaving wonders for their visitors.

During the first part of the visit, Ms Ying introduced the job scope of industrial engineers and explained how they worked for the efficiency of the theme park with examples of projects successfully implemented in the past.

During the second part of the visit, participants were divided into two teams and guided by Ms Ying and
Mr Yan for a site walk to fully understand the operation of the selected “lands” in the theme park. They went to the main entrance to see the bag checks, the ticket booths and turnstiles to understand the dynamics among these three operations which might impact the guests’ experiences. Then, they went to Tomorrowland to briefly look at each element in a themed area, including the attractions, restaurants, shops, seating and pathways. Finally, they took Orbitron as an example to illustrate how works had been done to improve the throughput of the attraction.

The LT Division would like to express their sincere thanks to the Industrial Engineering Department for their generous hospitality and for making this visit such a pleasure.

Technical seminar on the first globally recognised standard for industrial safety of the cold chain
By Ir Dannies HO

Cold chain management has become an important component of the supply chain. It is commonly used not only in the food industry, but also in the pharmaceutical, chemical and floral industries. With supply chains becoming more complex, the consequential risk of exposure is growing. The captioned seminar was co-organised by the LT Division, in response to the raising concern of cold chain management, and held on 9 October 2019 at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It attracted more than 140 industry experts and participants from the related fields.

In the seminar, different industry experts were invited to share cases of cold chain management and PAS 1018 (indirect, temperature-controlled refrigerated delivery services, and land transport of refrigerated parcels with intermediate transfer). This is the first international standard for cold chain management in the world and is expected to be transformed into an ISO international standard by 2020.

This seminar provided a platform for the industry to exchange information and views on the current and important food safety issues in Hong Kong. Hot topics such as cold chain management, FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 were covered. The seminar was very informative and fruitful. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all the industry experts and the helpers for their contribution to the seminar.
