A Report on Organizational Study

2010

The limitations are: 

Some information¶s is collected through the interviews with the mangers and employee. The personal interviews may be affected by personal bias.  The personal resource of the company is limited. So it was challenge to collect data without interrupting the normal operation of the company.  It was not possible to get all the details of the organization especially in terms of financial matter. The study has been taken only from the published information and hence analysis can be only on macro basis.  The information collected from the company records relates only to the past which may not be an overall representative of the future.  The study is purely of academic interest. The inexperience makes the analysis less precious when compared to professional analysis. Hence the conclusions from the analysis of statement are not sure indicators.  The result of this study cannot be generalized for other similar organizations.  Time was the major limitation of the study.  The study mainly based on secondary sources and therefore errors are possible.

Thiruvananthapurarm in 1945. Caarmel Engineering College Page 4 . had taken over by the Government of Kerala. After the invention of the incandescent lamp by Edison in 1879 and the subdivision of lighting circuits for individual control of the lamps. At present there are five Public Sector electrical equipment industries in Kerala. I) at Kollam in 1950 closely followed it. One of the main problems the industrial world faces now is the scarcity of energy. After that meters were made by diferent manufacturers in different models and versions according to the demand and consistency in designs. no meter to accurately measure and record the usage of electricity. There was one obstacle. The first electrical industry to be set up in India was the Fan Industry in Calcutta in 1921. it was no longer practical to measure lamp hours. The demand is more and the supply is less. motors. worked equally well with DC circuits at that time. By the mid 1980s hybrid meters with electronic registers were mounted. Although it was designed for the AC circuits. Around this time the first new standard model watt-hour meter was developed by Elihu Thomson and Thomas Duncan which was a commercial success. The first Public Sector Electrical Industry to be set up in Kerala was the Metropolitan Engineering Company Ltd. Electricity being the important among them plays a major role in almost all the industries. The manufacture of electrical equipments like transformers. Then by the introduction of transformer helped to make the present system of AC transmission and distribution possible. More research is done to find out alternative sources of energy.A Report on Organizational Study 2010 Electrical Industry in India came into existence only after the First World War period. analogue measuring instruments have been replaced by electronic ones by suppliers of electricity. but the dependence will be on the existing sources. Production of electricity has become more expensive which demands careful utilization and accurate measurement keeping this in mind.E. With the advances in the electronics in the 1970s the manufacturers started introduction of electronic registers and automatic meter reading devices. (U. By the early 1990s introduction of electronic parts resulted in the dropping of the induction type models and paved the way to electronic models which become more feasible and popular. In 1960 the management of the United Electrical Industry Ltd. Till some new alternative energy sources is found out. The researchers are still in the beginning phase.
