CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION

This project is based on the organizational study conducted at KAMCO, Athani . It was established in 1973 for manufacturing of agricultural machineries. In 1980 Kerala Agro Machinery Corporation limited became a separate government of kerala undertaking. In India agriculture is the major activity of mathe people. Majority of the people in this country are farmers. Earlier the main problem was the lack of technology in the field of agriculture. They used to use the ancient method. So it became time consuming one. Besides that the coast of production was very high. Because they had to do everything themselves without the help of modern methods. The situation went on for a long time without any change .But after the independence of the country the scenario changed dramatically. The government understood the importance of agriculture in the development of the country.They understood that mechanization in the farming would be the only solution. When the mechanization of farming operations commenced in the country heavy duty tractors were extensively used. But when a new law came to control the extend of land holding, the use of heavy tractors became unviable and it became necessary to shift to smaller machines. To achieve this objectives, indigenous agro machinery units were to be set up. So out of the nations need KAMCO was started in the year 1973. It started as an asembling unit of power tillers under the collaboration with KUBOTA limited of japan. The main aim is to start the manufacturing of power reapers, garden tillers, combine harvesters, paddy transplants etc…. .

Japan is the leading manufacturer of power tiller and other agricultural machineries in the world.KUBOTA Ltd.On 15/11/1972.The Kerala agro industries corporation limited Trivandrum promoted the establishment of Kerala agro machinery Corporation limited (KAMCO). Japan in February 1972. which held the entire paid up capital share in KAMCO. Growth and development 5 . the Kerala industrial and technical consultancy organization limited(KITCO) were entrusted with the work.CHAPTER 2 INDUSTRY PROFILE 2.Even though the company was formed as a subsidiary of KAIC ltd.1 Introduction to industry and its evolution Origin of the organisation In 1958.It was realized that mechanization of farming operations would be one of the keys to engineering a successful green revolution. the japanese presented ‘Kubota power tiller’ to the president of India mr: Rajendra Prasad.It helped to explore the new avenues in farmer mechanization for a country predominantly agrarian. subsequently the company has made a fully owned government company by transferring the share held by KAIC Ltd.In 1972 the KAIC limited (the kerala agro industries corporation limited ) entered into technical collaboration agreement with M/S. Kubota limited.

The phase of mechanization of farming in the country was slow during 1950’s. Though India was backward in the use of machines for agricultural operations. the use of pesticides. Thereafter. the watering of land. yet in the past few years there has been an increase in the use of modern implements. . the control of seeds. are now done more scientifically than ever before. the sowing of seeds. this has increased. particularly since the mid 1960’s with the coming of the new agricultural technology. 6 .In the view of the spectacular success in the production and productivity achieved in developed countries through mechanization of agriculture. The preparation of land. the quick harvesting of crops etc. it was being agreed that India also should fall in line with these countries. An associated effect of the new technology is the change in the agricultural practices.

This is one the major competitors in India.4 Indian scenario As the independent India looked up on agriculture as the back bone of its economy . KAMCO exports its products mainly to Srilanka .5 State Scenario 7 . a gain for the nation”. which is really applied and justified. Iran . 2. Others are :• • • Bengal machine tools Crompton graves Khasana Srachi Dragon VST tillers • • • 2.KAMCO products are reaching all over India and are loved and adored by millions of Indian farmers. The company enjoys all Indian market through a network of about 45 dedicated dealers .2. The company is engaged in manufacturing small agricultural machines mainly intended for the small and marginal farmers in our country. 2.Haiti . In international market the sales promotion of the company’s only through websites and the products are widely accepted all over the world. .3 World scenario Due to the effect of globalization foreign countries like China and Korea started to introduce their products in the Indian market and as a result KAMCO products had to compete with these foreign products .The product from china is a major threat for the company because of its low price . the establishment of KAMCO imparted momentum to the agricultural scenario in India . For the last 3 decades KAMCO has been meeting the needs and demand of Indian farmers. Bangladesh.2 CURRENT COMPETITION PREVELENT IN KAMCO The major competitor of Kamco is VST tiller and tractors.Afghanistan and also to South African Countries.But when we consider the quality KAMCO comes in the first place. The company slogan is “A boon for the farmers .

there were no motorised or mechanised equipments available in the state. and introduced its power tillers and other medium and small sized mechanical aids of cultivation. mechanization of the farming is a non-starter proposition in the state. Other competitors are yet to step into scene in the state. Being a monopoly. The Kerala farmers grabbed this opportunity. This industry is facing a great threat that the changing of agricultural economy into an industrial economy 8 . Being a consumer state. It has tiny and small farmlands owned by private landowners.State of kerala has peculiar state of affairs in its agricultural economy. which provides machineries to the farming segment as an aid to their cultivation. owing to economic reasons. Barring traditional tools and tackles employed by the farmers in the cultivation. and made use of the benefits of automation in their fields. it depends largely on agricultural products from the neighbouring states. Low productivity coupled with prohibitive costs of cultivation has virtually driven the traditional farmers out of their vocation! Under this scenario. KAMCO controls the Kerala market in supplies of automated farming equipments. was adventurous enough to venture into this bleak scenario. As of now. which in turn made the entire operations of the KAMCO successful. KAMCO is the one and only one industrial unit in the state. KAMCO. Even those available lands are not fully utilised for cultivation.

In KAMCO. The process undergone there is called 7 tank pre-treatment process. 31 .transmissions in the assembly we get the finished product. they are using a good advanced painting shop. ASSEMBLY SECTION ENGINE LINE TRANSMISSION LINE KMB LINE There are 4 work centers in the engine line and 3 work centers in the transmission line. This process is mainly done to clean surface by removing oil and grease. Assembly section mainly consists of three areas.

32 . Process 5: Phosphating Again the item is dipped in a solution containing phosphate content for about 45 minutes. Process 6: Water rinsing The component is washed with water. Process 3: Acid treatment Again the item is dipped in a solution containing 35% HCL for about 20 minutes.7 TANK PRE-TREATMENT PROCESSES Process 1: Degreasing In this process the item or product that is to be cleaned is dipped in the tank with chemical at 60-degree temperature for about 20-25 minutes. Process 2: Water rinsing Here the item is simply rinsed with water for about 2 minutes. After this process the surface of the component will be completely cleaned. Process 4: The component is again passed through two cold-water tanks and rinsed. This is mainly done to remove rust.

one is Ash and the other one is Post office Red. Production quotas for each month are to be met. The maintenance measure followed here is total preventive maintenance (TPM) which is a Japanese concept. During early periods 3000 tillers were produced. Mainly they are using two colors for painting. Production figures are decided upon at the beginning of the year. Daily production figures may be flexible as long as the monthly quotas are met. They are civil maintenance and electrical maintenance. The population of tiller is about two and a half lakhs and the weight of tiller is 430 kgs consisting of 740 components. Production of tillers in various units are as follows:33 . Production planning is carried out when the production budget is made. The final product. tiller is finally checked to see whether there is leak or produces abnormal sound. The daily requirement of production is communicated by the Manager (Production) to the shift supervisors. Under maintenance department there are two types of maintenance rooms. Once in 90 days maintenance is done. In this company 67% is considered as minimum productivity for an employee. After cleaning the components it will go for painting through a conveyer belt and after painting it will go to the oven through the belt. that leads to continuous production. Another major aspect of KAMCO is zero down time. An employee is considered eligible for getting production incentive only if he crosses this minimum productivity line.Process 7: Passivation Here the component is dipped in a solution containing chromic acid for about 20 minutes. but now it has been raised to 5000.
