INDUSTRIAL ANALYSIS: Revolution or analysis of electric industriesLike every other industrial sector in India, the Indian Electrical/Electronics Industry too is slowly emerging from out of its "protective cover". For far too long has Indian Industry remained shackled and consequently inward looking. Over the past fifty years there was no exposure to global players and competition, with the result that the Industry grew up in a sheltered environment, dependent on the Government for everything, from licenses to protection to tariffs. Each one of these interventions was aimed at securing protection for oneself and ensuring growth of one’s own organization at the cost of industry and the nation at large. Lack of global competition encouraged a "cost plus" approach, where every conceivable cost increase was passed on to the customer. There was thus no motivation to reduce cost. With deli censing, decontrol and deregulation, Indian Industry has suddenly been exposed to global competition. Since last decade, India has witnessed what global players have achieved and what they are capable of achieving. We are becoming aware of competition on our turf. In this scenario, every company complains of increased competition, lower order books and shrinking margins. The Indian Electrical/Electronics Industry is of course further besieged by the fact that there is a dearth of business on account of lack of investment in the power infrastructure. Many organizations in this industry are looking overseas to develop the export markets owing to reduced demand at home. At the outset, it must be stated that the reduced domestic demand is at best a temporary phenomenon. The power sector in India is bound to grow and this will undoubtedly boost demand from the Utilities, quite apart from the industrial demand which will continue to grow with increased industrial output. The poor financial health of the SEBs is however a damper that cannot be wished away in the short term. This will continue to plague corporate in the Electrical Industry, until the SEB restructuring and unbundling brings a turnaround in the medium term.

INTRODUCTION TO SECTOR

INTRODUCTION
The only constant that we know is that, this world is changing. Change had come to Indian industry like a sweeping tornardo transforming the industrial environment and giving indegeneous industry some very tough standards to measure up to. In this testing situation, only the fittest have the wherewithal to survive. Only the best will thrive. That Kirloskar Electric has not only survived but has grown in confidence, capabilities, range and were scope is a testimony to the inherent strength of its foundation as a company that once set out to revolutionized India’s agricultural sector with value engineering. The difference is in the collective outlook of people trained to look upon every challenge as a platform from which to take giant leaps in quality and performance. And in so doing, to build on core capabilities of power engineering and upgrade them to world standards. The founder of Kirloskar group is late “LAKSHMAN RAO KASHINATH KIRLOSKAR”. He was born in 1886 in a village called GULAHASAR in Belgaum district. He had preference for mechanical from his school days and therefore came to Mumbai and completed a course of technical draftsman ship at JJ school of arts. He started business of selling and repairing the bicycles. Visionary founder Laxman Rao Kirloskar created the first Iron plough for the Indian farmer. His involvement with agriculture led him to make the first pump then the prime movers for the pumps. Since then KEC corporate goal has been to look into the future and engineer products that time would eventually demand.

KEC began its endeavour by catering to the needs of domestic market & slowly & steadily expanding its activities by exporting to countries like USA, Canada, Hong Kong etc. Due to increasing demand for its quality products which are ISO certified.

It has a strong customer base; good positioning in the market, goodwill & reputation earned due to its quality products & finally always believes in power of now leading to more success & achievements year after year. The in-plant-training for a period of 6 weeks has given me a clear- cut idea of an organization working. This has helped me in recalling the theoretical concepts learnt in 1st year MBA & relating it with real working & applicability in life. It is also helping me in learning management concepts of 2nd year MBA. I came across many real problems faced by organization in day to day activities such a technology human management & physical resource management to overcome the problems by combined efforts of all the related departments. Thus management is the accomplishment of results through efforts of peoples. During the 6 weeks, it was totally a new experience entering into the organization & spent most of the time visiting various departments, interacting with people etc. In the beginning of the training, I went to different production sites where the assembling of the material is taking place. There I understood as to how the production work is divided & how the responsibility is allocated. After production site I the subsequent weeks I went to different departments like human resource management, quality, marketing, finance etc. I was able to understand the

ORGANISATION STUDY importance of each department & their contribution towards the achievements of the company objectives. I came to know the importance of managerial knowledge such as planning, organizing, directing, controlling & decision making in all day-to-day departmental activities. I also learnt the importance of time management that is a key parameter for any organization towards the success path. It was really fruitful & great experience working in the organization like KIRLOSKER ELECTRIC CO LIMITED, which is of great repute in the electrical industry. Finally, the training period in the company was a wonderful small time experience in the huge corporate.
