Mysuru, December 28:-“We want to be progressive as a nation in making sure that it will not have effect on our future generation” said Arjun Ranga, Chairman, and CII Mysuru.
He was delivering the inaugural address at the five day Zero Effect Zero Defect (ZED) Capacity Building Programme for MSMEs in the city on Wednesday.
He said “we do not have a clear definition on Indian manufacturing in the global market like Japan or Germany for their excellent engineering skills and leadership in manufacturing. China has become low cost manufacturer in the World and 90 percent of manufacturing today happens in China. Iphone global production is in china, it’s one of the most continuous technology products. Therefore, ZED initiative is in the direction to set the global view of Indian manufacturing as Zero Effect Zero Defect quality goods which will have the least impact on environment. What we create should be passed on to future generation, we are not here for today we are here for tomorrow that is the thought beyond this event” said Arjun Ranga.
“I am confident that not only will the participants benefit significantly from this training, but will in turn be evangelists in spreading the message about the benefits of ZED amongst their fellow industry brethren as also about the Governments special initiative to empower the MSME sector. MSMEs will be assessed and rated only on defined enabler & outcome parameters on operational level indicators while the organisational level indicators are also useful pointers towards implementing a ZED Maturity Assessment Model at the operational level. These operational level indicators may include each MSMEs Manufacturing capabilities; Design capabilities; Quality/Environment/Safety assurance systems; People development and engagement systems; Standardization and measurement systems for quality and environment; Learning and improvement systems and Legal compliances on hygiene factors. ZED rated MSMEs are expected to have easy access to loans and be part of a credible & reliable vendor database for companies investing in India,” he added.
The five day programme covers the scheme guidelines as well as explanation and guidance on how to implement the ZED Model and make best use of the subsidies available.
The technical content of the programme would include fundamental guidance on various qualities, production, environmental and energy related tolls and techniques that can be easily adopted by MSMEs.
Over 35 MSMEs Unit Heads / Quality/ Production Heads from Mysuru are participating at this training programme. –(KK)
