The Labour productivity in the Indian Manufacturing companies is abysmally low. The principles of lean are very simple and with the help of these principles, the labour productivity can be improved manifold. But, very often it is not just the lean principles that are needed. The human element in the change program is very important. Even though the improvements are simple, it is not easy to push them forward due to the resistance from human element.
Venkatram has learnt this art at an young age! He joined as GET in Sandfits foundry pvt ltd, Coimbatore and got involved in implementing Lean Projects. Foundry is a tough environment. It is not easy to do any improvement in a foundry. But, Venkat has successfully implemented Lean projects and handled the human element very well. He interacts with all concerned whether junior or senior in an easy manner. He goes about his job in a ‘no-nonsense’ way.
Improving the productivity in a project and going on to the next project looks like a normal way of life for this youngster!
Sandfits and the Indian manufacturing is lucky to have Engineers like Venkat!
Keep aiming higher Venkat!
