Our project is to be concentrated on the PRODUCTION AND OPERATION aspects & what are the measures that any small scale firm takes in order to increase overall efficiency & make itself competent in the market also what are the polices that affect directly or indirectly to the functioning of small scale unit. To make our understanding more clear & to understand different phases of production .we will take into consideration the practical working of SUPERNOVA TECHNOLOGIES Pvt. Ltd. Whose introduction is already given in the beginning. Now we will look after the various aspects of production of the firm in consideration step by step What actually PRODUCTION AND OPERATION MANAGEMENT is:Production and operation management concerns itself with the conversion of inputs into outputs, using physical resources, so as to provide desired utility/ies-a firm , place, possession or state or a combination thereof- to the customer while meeting the other organizational objectives of effectiveness, efficiency and adaptability. Production/operations management is the process, which combines and transforms various resources used in the production/operations subsystem of the organization into value added product/services in a controlled manner as per the policies of the organization. Therefore, it is that part of an organization, which is concerned with the transformation of a range of inputs into the required (products/services) having the requisite quality level. The set of interrelated management activities, which are involved in manufacturing certain products, is called as production management. If the same concept is extended to services management, then the corresponding set of management activities is called as operations management.

ELECON ENGINEERING COMPANY LIMITED COMPANY OVERVIEW HISTORY
Elecon Engineering Company Limited has been originated from “Milling Trading Company” established in 1914 and function as a house of machinery imports. In 1951, the Milling Trading Company imported an idea of establishing an indigenous organization to manufacture material handling equipment in the country and thus ELECON came into existing in 1951 at Goregaun, Mumbai. Before incorporation, it was working in the form of partnership firm to carry out manufacturing and dealing in Material Handling Equipment (MHE). Partnership firm was dissolved in 1959 and Shri B. I. Patel took over as a proprietor. On 11th January 1960 it was incorporated as a Private Limited Company. But later in the year 1961, company was converted into Public Limited Company. The name of company is derived from its two main products namely ELEVATOR & CONVEYOR, thus it is ELECON. After getting valuable experience of the decade Elecon shifted to V. V. Nagar from Mumbai in the year 1962. ELECON commenced manufacture of reduction Gear units in 1962 and set up a separate Gear Division in the year 1976. It was the first to introduce modular design concept, case hardened and ground gear technology in India. ELECON has also setup an Alternate Energy Division (AED) in the year 1993. For manufacturing and supply of Wind Turning Generators (WTG), a non-conventional source of providing energy under the technical knowledge. ELECON has installed around 25 WTGs at Lamba and Dhank site in Gujarat. ELECON to begin with, is

Types of PRODUCTION process In ELECON there are three types of production depending on the quantity of articles produced and the nature of their manufacture the production can be classified into three categories. After production and before installation care is taken that the customers completely read the manual before usage. If ELECON cannot produce some part of product then company will give that part on contract basis to other company. the proper tools. In case it is a non-standardized then the engineering checks whether it can be produced within the available facilities or not. Then the assembly drawing and the detailed drawings are made. Page 17 . efficient maintenance.PRODUCTION PROCESS Production process is a process of producing goods and services by combining and utilizing the services of factors of production In ELECON generally the production process consists of following stages 1] Production dept receive production Design 2] Receiving Raw material 3] Making and machining billets and blanks 4] Making components as per design 5] Assembling units 6] Separate articles 7] Checking the quality of the parts and assemblies 8] Painting The engineering department on the basis of order received decides whether the order received is standardized or customized. Assembly drawings show all the components but not the great details. efficient manpower etc. After the preparation of the drawing they are sent to the production department. If customer made any changes in product then the guarantee of the product is void. Incase of any change modification are done then. The success of each step depends on an uninterrupted supply of raw materials.
