However this didn’t effect my excitement and focus on the ongoing training period. I expect to involve more on marketing related work or task. she provided me with productive and stimulating learning environment.1 Swot Analysis The Swot Analysis is conducted based on the direct an indirect experience that I haveu n d e r g o n e d u r i n g t h e t h r e e m o n t h o f m y i n d u s t r i a l t r a i n i n g a t P a p e r g i r l ( M ) S d n .0 SWOT ANALYSIS 4.

Saidah my mentor treatedme as his real assistant. material flow. the industrialtraining is not only the knowledge outside the classroom but it also opens my world view wider. At thesame time. Among the main criteria studied is the ability of the training to meet the program objective. I was capable to contribute my ideas and insights in her works. I able tounderstand manufacturing related aspect such as production flow. Ms. My Englishl a n g u a g e s k i l l s b o t h s p o k e n a n d w r i t t e n a l s o w e r e d e v e l o p e d . 4. This training has exposed me to the invaluableexperience that I can't gain from the lecture hall or classroom. From the task and project given by my supervisor and mentor.

Steeling tools: Sometimes it was found that tools suddenly disappear from the Workshops. Some wanted to do their job disregarding others’ jobs. Collaborating with them was difficult. Sometimes some workmen temporarily borrowed others’ equipment and later just left them in the place they worked without returning them. Collaboration problems with the workmen: People differ. Somebody seems to have taken it”. Mr. Following are some of their own words: Now it is the teatime. On the other hand some just wanted to learn all the things in the Workshops doing nothing. 39 CHAPTER 11: CONCLUSION 11.

Some of the undergraduates (I feel I was one of that group) were seen to work harder gaining more knowledge and the real taste of engineering and some were not. Implement a method to return the unused consumable goods to the stores. Maintain a simple booklet on materials that are used in the Engineering Workshops. 4.) 2. Maintain a training program for the employees at least one session a month. As far as the above mentioned factor is considered. Teach the employees how to collaborate with others.3 SUGGESTIONS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF TRAINING PROGRAM A group of 14 undergraduates including myself had the first year in-plant training at the Faculty Workshop together and all of us did what we were supposed to do separately.2 SUGGESTIONS FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE ENGINEERING WORKSHOPS The experiences I had in the Engineering Workshops suggest me the following to be implemented for the improvement of the place. 3. Earning and living a satisfactory life is the desire of all.

The stability or the sustainability of the organization mostly depends on this factor. 11. continuous knowledge mining followed by experience in a cycle upholds the entire system in every aspect. . If discussions of this nature were conducted. On the other hand.

Some illustrative 40 aspects of practical engineering could have been discussed widening the openness of the eyes of us. we were not exposed to any sort of practical engineering when we went for the training. . Though we new what engineering was.Furthermore I suggest that it would have been better if all the undergraduates were exposed to some presentations on the in-plant training before we were released.
