CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION TO ORGANISATION STUDY


INTRODUCTION Organizational studies, sometimes known as organizational science, encompass the systematic study and careful application of knowledge about how people act within organizations. Organizational studies sometimes is considered a sister field for, or overarching designation that includes, the following disciplines: industrial and organizational psychology, organizational behavior, human resources, and management. Whenever people interact in organizations, many factors come into play. Modern organizational studies attempt to understand and model these factors. Like all modernist social sciences, organizational studies seek to control, predict, and explain. There is some controversy over the ethics of controlling workers' behavior, as well as the manner in which workers are treated. As such, organizational behaviour or OB have at times been accused of being the scientific tool of the powerful. Those accusations notwithstanding, OB plays a major role in organizational development, enhancing organizational performance, as well as individual and group performance/satisfaction/commitment. The orgnaisation study is the systematic learning process about an organisation to understand the diiferent roles of each members in the organization. In organisation study, the different roles, namely, interpersonal roles, decisional roles and informational roles of various members are evaluated and how it affects the functioning of the organisation is analysed. In this work, M/s HMT Machine Tool Limited at Kalamssery was selected for the organization study. An industry, which has undergone a radical shift in its paradigm thinking, the Indian machine tool industry is later recognized as a provider of cost-effective high quality lean manufacturing solutions. The industry resiliently supports all its users to enhance productivity as well as improve competitiveness, for the betterment of the final customer. Being an integral sector, growth of the machine tool industry has an immense bearing on the entire economy, especially India's manufacturing industry. And it is even more crucial for development of the country's strategic segments such as defense, railways, space, and atomic energy. World over too, industrializedadvanced countries have created market niches on the back of a well-developed and supportive machine tool sector. HMT was conceived by the Government of India in 1949, and was incorporated in 1953, with the objective of producing a limited range of machine tools, required for building an industrial edifice for the country. With the success achieved in the initial years in absorbing the technology and in attaining production competence far ahead of the original plans, the Company launched a bold plan of diversification and expansion which resulted in the duplication of the Bangalore Unit and the setting up of new units at Pinjore, Kalamassery and Hyderabad. HMT MTL at

Kalamassery is established in 1953 for producing the lathe. In the process of expansion, HMT MTLK started producing printing machines in 1972. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY: To give familiarize with the business organization. To gain familiarize with the different departments in the organization and their functioning. To understand how the key business processes are carried out in organizations. Understand how information is used in organization for decision making at various levels. To relate theory with practice. METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY: Both primary and secondary data is collected from the organization. Primary data is collected through interviews with employees at various levels. Secondary data is obtained from company manuals especially quality manuals company web site and other magazines and news papers. Direct observation is used to understand the production process. PERIOD OF STUDY The study was held from 23/05/2010 to 22/06/2010. LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY The findings need not be conclusive but only indicative. Area of concentration was mainly HMT Machines tools limited, Kalamassery. The time span of this project was very limited to collect all the information.

CHAPTER 2 INDUSTRY PROFILE, COMPANY PROFILE & PRODUCT PROFILE OF HMT


INDUSTRY PROFILE The machine tool industry constitutes the backbone of the industrial sector and is vital for the growth of the Indian machine tool industry. Even though the Indian machine tool industry is a small segment of the engineering industry, it plays a very important role in the development and technology up gradation of the engineering industry. The quality and cost of engineering products depends on the quality of mother machine tools and their automation level. The development of the machine tool industry is therefore of paramount importance for a competitive and self reliant industrial structure. The growth of Indian machine tool industry and major user industries clearly shows the close inter dependencies of indigenous machine tools and the major user industries. This level of performance of the major user industries has been made possible only because of support of indigenous manufacture large and small, to meet almost all the requirement of machine tools, conventional, CNC special purpose and flexible manufacturing lines required by them. Had the indigenous machine tool industry not been able to meet the major user industries demand, then these machine tools would have to be imported, at much higher prices, irrespective of rising cost of foreign exchange or not. This would have severely affected not only the country GNP and the overall economy of the country but not severely impaired the country space and the defense sector. PROFILE OF COMPANY HMT By end of the Second World War, the government of India confronted by a big problem of disposing the colossal war waste. Ultimately, a committee was constituted to inquire into the possibilities. The committee report of 1948 proposed the establishment of a government owned machine tool industry. This was expected to fulfill two aspects. The first was being utilization of the Rs.4000 million worth of metallic waste. The second was the incorporation of a state owned infrastructure manufacturing facility. The result was the birth of THE HINDUSTAN MACHINE TOOLS LIMITED, which diversified in due course of time to the present stature of the multi core, multi location, and multi unit, multi product industrial giant HMT Ltd. The HMT Ltd was started as a single factory to produce Tool Room Lathe at Bangalore in collaboration with M/s Oerlikon of Switzerland in 1953, with a

capacity to manufacture around 400 machines per year. Since then different collaborations, continued in house R&D and tremendous marketing efforts brought HMT, to present status. The growth of HMT Ltd. was characterized by the forward and backward integration of technology and product diversification. Thus the company that stated with manufacturing and selling lathes expanded its machine tools products range to evolve as the ultimate solution in metal cutting. The product diversification efforts took the company to the business of watches in 1962, tractor in 1971, die-casting on plastic machinery in 1971, printing machinery in 1972, presses in 1972, lamps & lamp making machinery in 1976, food processing machinery in 1980, CNC systems in 1986, ball screws in 1986 and reconditioning in 1990. The multi product activities made HMT Ltd. change its identity as Hindustan Machine Tools Limited. Today HMT Ltd has 16 manufacturing units with 22 products divisions spread through the length and breath of India. A subsidiary viz., HMT (international) Ltd undertakes the exports of the company. They are also export agents for general other Indian companies. HMT Ltd was restructured in 1992 to facilitate better administration of the multi product business activities. Accordingly, the following business group was established. Machine tools business group, to concentrate on mental cutting machines Industrial machinery business group to deal with printing machines, diecasting and plastic injection molding machines food processing machines and metal forming machines Agricultural business group to concentrate on tractor Engineering components business group to deal with casting and ball screws Consumer product business group, to deal with watches and lamps IN ADDITION TO THESE BUSINESS GROUPS, THE COMPANY OWNS THRESS SUBSIDIARIES AS FOLLOWS: HMT (international) Ltd. which undertakes overseas project & exports PRAGA Tools Ltd. which manufacturers machine tools HMT bearing Ltd which manufacture precision bearing in collaboration with M/S Kozo Japan As per the revival plan of this public sector industry a turn around plan has introduced in early days of this millennium and re-organized as HMT Ltd holding company including tractor division and presently comprises of the following subsidiaries. 1.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS FOR QUALITY MANAGEMENT Good quality system consists of sound technical and administrative procedures for assuring quality. QA offers more scope for reducing costs prerequisites and characteristics of good quality assurance and quality management. The challenge to a developing nation is to motivate processors and manufactures to adopt and implement these standards and to establish a credible nation quality registration scheme, which will be recognized by trading partners. In an increasing number of markets and industries third party quality assessment and registration is becoming a pre-requisite for doing business. ISO 9000 registration as considered the minimum acceptable level for a supplier and those who cannot demonstrate this minimum level may not only have difficulty in selling in certain markets they may be barren from those markets. Not only must a defendant be able to demonstrate that his product is well designed and conforms to all standards and regulations, but he must be able to demonstrate that the product is manufactured consistently with in a system that conforms at least to internationally accepted standards. IN ADDITION, ISO 9000 SERIES STANDARD ALSO Motivates exporters Sets a base line Establishes reasonable standards for government procurement Focus training and professional development Sets general market procedure for regulating health and safety Reduces time consuming audits by costumes and regulators Raises levels of motivation, co-operation workmanship and quality awareness. Improves efficiency, reduces scrap and rework.

13

The following topics are dealt with in the ISO 9000 series of standards. 1. ISO 9000 Quality management and quality assurance standards section and use. 2. ISO 9000 Model for quality assurance in design development, production installation, and servicing. 3. ISO 9002 Model for quality assurance in production and installation. 4. ISO 9003 Guidelines on development of quality management system to minimize costs and maximize benefits.

QUALITY CONTROL & INSPECTION


INTRODUCTION Quality control in its simplest term refers to control of quality during the manufacture. Both quality control and inspection are envisaged to assure the quality in entire area of production process. Inspection is a function of determining the quality. When quality becomes effective, the need for inspection decreases. Hence, the quality control determines the cause of variation in the characteristics of products and gives solutions by which these variations can be controlled. It is economical in its purpose, objective in its procedure, dynamic in its operation and helpful in its treatment. STRUCTURE OF DEPARTMENT JGM (Q)

PATTERN SHOP A pattern is defined as anything used for forming an impression called mould in the sand. Mould when filled with molten material on solidifying, forms a reproduction of the pattern and is known as mould. It is slightly larger in size than casting. As the first stage in preparing the casting, the pattern of the castings is prepared. Pattern of casting is prepared at pattern shop with either of the materials given below Wood:- Wood is the most commonly used pattern material as it is cheap, easily available and also easy to join and fabricate. But it has a large rate of moisture absorption and also warping and wearing is high. Metals:- Metals have the advantage that they do not warp, are very accurate and have high strength. But shaping is slightly difficult and it is also subjected to rusting and the costs are also high. Plastics:- They are mostly thermosetting plastics. They are light in weight, have very good surface, do not react with water or air and are not subjected to warping, but cannot withstand high temperatures. Plasters:- The most common example is gypsum cement. Repairs cant be easily done and it does not need skilled labour. Wax:- Wax has very good surface finish, can be easily altered to any shape and is very accurate. But it cannot withstand high temperatures. Wood with metallic coating Thermocoal: single use patterns are made using thermocoal In the process of casting, a pattern is a replica of the object to be cast, used to prepare the cavity into which molten material will be poured during the casting process. The pattern needs to incorporate suitable shrinkage allowances depending on material flow and heat transfer considerations. Pattern making is a skilled technique that was highly valued in the different cultures practicing casting through the centuries. In sand casting, the pattern is usually of wood, whereas it may be metal or other materials in pressure or centrifugal casting. The patternmaker also decides where the sprues and risers (inlet and outlet for molten material) will be placed with respect to the pattern. Parts of the object which have holes or depressions are handled by inserting cores defining volumes that the material will not flow into. Sometimes patterns may also accommodate chills, solid pieces of the final material, to enable rapid cooling, resulting in martensitic hardening in the neighbourhood of the chill. SAND MOULD MAKING PROCEDURE The procedure of making a typical sand moulding starts by placing a bottom board first either on the moulding platform or on the floor, making the surface even. The drag mounding flask is kept upside down on the bottom board along with the drag part of the pattern at the center of the flask on the board. There should be enough clearance between the pattern and the walls of the flask Rest of the drag flask is completely filled with the backup sand and uniformly rammed to compact the sand. The ramming of sand should be done properly so as not to compact it too hard, which makes the escape of gases difficult, nor too loose so that mould would not
63

have enough strength. After the ramming is over, the excess sand in the flask is completely scraped using a flat bar to the level of the flask edge. The finished drag flask is now rolled over to the bottom board exposing the pattern. Using a stick, the edges of the sand around the pattern is repaired and cope half of the pattern is placed over the drag pattern, aligning it with the help of dowel pins. The cope flask on top of the drag is located aligning again with the help of the pins. The dry parting sand is sprinkled all over the drag and on the pattern. A sprue pin for making the sprue passage is located at a small distance of from the pattern. Also a riser pin if required is kept at an appropriate place and freshly prepared moulding sand similar to that of the drag along with the backing sand is sprinkled. The sand is thoroughly rammed, excess sand scraped and vent holes are made all over in the cope as in the drag. The sprue pin and the riser pin are carefully withdrawn from the flask. Later the pouring basin is cut near the top of the sprue. The cope is separated from the drag and any loose sand one the cope and drag interface of the drag is blown off with the help of bellows. Now the cope and the drag pattern halves are withdrawn by using the draw spikes and rapping the pattern all around to slightly enlarge the mould cavity so that the mould wall are not spoiled b the withdrawing pattern. The runner and the gates are cut in the mould carefully without spoiling the mould. Any excess or loose sand found in the runners and mould cavity is blown any using bellows. Now the facing sand in the form of a paste is applied all over the mould cavity and the runners which would give the finishing casting a good surface finish. A dry sand core is prepared using a core box. After suitable baking, it is placed in the mould cavity. The cope is replaced on the drag taking care of the alignment of the two by means of pins. The mould is now ready to pouring. MOULDING PROCEDURE The pig iron, MS scrap, Carbon, manganese and other constituent materials are melted in the electric furnace. The molten metal is drawn into a ladder and transported using an over head crane. The molten metal is poured to the mould trough the cavity designed for the same. FORGING Forging is the operation where the metal is heated and then a force is applied to manipulate the metal in such a way that the required final shape is obtained. This is the oldest of the metal working processes known to mankind since the copper age. Forging is generally a hot working operation through cold forging is used sometimes. FETTLING The complete process of the cleaning of casting, called fettling, involves the removal of the cores, gates and risers, cleaning of the casting surface and chipping of any of the unnecessary projections on the surface. The dry sand cores can be removed simply by knocking off with an iron bar, by means of a core vibrator, or by means of hydro blasting. The method depends on the size, complexity and the core material used. The gates and risers can be removed by hammering, chipping, hack
64

sawing, abrasive cutoff or by flame or cutting. Removal of gates and risers can be simplified by providing a reduced metal sections at the casting joint, for brittle materials such as grey cast iron, the gates cab easily be broken by hitting with a hammer. For steel and other similar materials sawing with any metal cutting saw like hack saw or band saw would be more convenient. For large size gates and risers we use flame or arc cutting to remove them. Similarly, abrasive cut off may also be used for removal of gates. Most of the abrasive cut off can be carried out by portable grinding machines with an angled grinding head. For cleaning the sand particles sticking to the casting surface, sand blasting is normally used. The casting is kept in a closed box and a jet of compressed air with a blast of sand grains or steel grits is directed against the casting surface, which thoroughly cleans the casting surface. T The shots used are either chilled cast iron grit or steel grit. Chilled iron is less expensive but is likely to be lost quickly by fragmentation. In the operation, the operator should be properly protected. FOUNDRY PROCESS CHART Planning / job order Chief of Foundry Foundry planning Foundry Tech.

WORK ASSIGNMENT PROCEDURE The method planning of the each component of the printing machine is developed by the planning department at HMT Kalamassery based on the detailed drawing issued by the design department. The planning department issues operation layout, which details the operations, section number, machine to be used for the operation, special tools to be used for the operation and description of the component. The production planning is done by the planning engineer in the plant. The planning engineer in the plant issues to the manufacturing order for each component considering the availability of the machine in the plant. The manufacturing order describes the operation number, section number, machine number, standard time (TS & TO), termination (start & end), quantity and inspection details. The worker will receive the design drawing, operation layout and manufacturing order of each component. The standard hour will be credited to the worker, if and only if the job is passed by the quality control personnel.

CHAPTER SWOT ANALYSIS


INTRODUCTION SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. SWOT analysis is a tool for auditing an organization and its environment. SWOT analysis is the first stage of planning and helps marketers to focus on key issues. Once key issues have been identified, the details are fed into marketing objectives. SWOT analysis can be used in conjunction with other tools for audit and analysis, such as PEST analysis and Porter's Five-Force analysis. SWOT analysis is a very popular tool, quick and easy to learn. SWOT ANALYSIS OF HMT MTLK

CHAPTER CONCLUSIONS
Advanced machine tools are vital to the realization of tomorrows critical technologies. In the efforts to survive in this highly competitive environment, companies are engaging in various initiatives such as expanding their market share by strengthening their sales and production bases through M&A, developing new products and functions that will give them an edge over other makers, boosting resilience against recession through production efficiency, and providing fee-paying after services. At present, differences in competitiveness among companies in the industry are beginning to become evident. Predictions of economic growth for the machine tool industry are conservative, but positive. A new spirit of cooperation exists among industry, academia, and government to develop programs that best utilize research resources to help industry resolve problems in the way of progress. There are even signs that training, a long neglected issue for the machine tool industry, is getting fresh attention. Meanwhile, pressures for lower cost, greater productivity, and improved quality are forcing even the most conservative machine-tool users to re-evaluate their equipment and procedures. The machine tool industry is experiencing both evolutionary and revolutionary change. Key components such as spindles and motors are improving incrementally while researchers propose radical new designs for bearings and machine tool configurations. Short production runs and just-in-time delivery are pressuring machine tool builders to make each machine do more? HMT is the leading machine tool manufacturing company in India. The company has to face tough competition from various companies. Even in the midst of tough competition from giants it still has a unique reputation of being the producer of a quality product. Even though the product has goodwill and good demand, the record shows that the company is running on loss. There are many factors, which contributes to the loss of the company.

High fixed overhead Lack of young blood in the executive level Potentials are not fully utilizing Wastage of raw materials Conventional Machines are used in large number in the plant Lack of Automation

The machine tool industry is set for an investment of Rs.2, 000-3,000 cores in the next two to three years. Even while the sector had its limitations in meeting the domestic demand, resulting in large dependence on imports, the sector was poised for an annual growth of 25 per cent. This would help in reducing imports while increasing its edge in the export market through modern technology induction and marketing strategies. Though exports were marginal at Rs 50 core, the increasing

77

recognition of the sector from global companies should provide greater opportunities for contract manufacturing and even joint ventures adding to investments with latest technologies for the sector to grow faster. The future focus would be on closing technology gap between Indian and international products through increased productivity, achieving higher consistency and accuracy, introducing modern safety concepts and enhancing research and development efforts.
