industrial Visit to Yamaha-Surajpur Greater Noida-Section C
On the 20th of July, the students of PGDM (Section–C) visited the manufacturing plant of Indian Yamaha Motors (IYM), located in Surajpur, Greater Noida. The first industrial trip organized for the first year students PGDM not only proved to be insightful, but also highly thought-provoking. The visit ascertained the emphasis and value of practical knowledge that Bimtech so proudly focusing on for years.
The visit began with an introduction of the company and theSurajpur plant by Ms.Shifya Mittal, a Bimtech Pass-out in the year 2014. She began the session with familiarizing students with the notion of ‘Kando’, a Japanese word that means satisfaction and appreciation. Yamaha has predominantly had its focus on customer satisfaction and on those building blocks, made an empire of its own. Creating value, a suitable corporate environment and a competent implementation of social responsibilities and norms are some of the multiple factors that were majorly talked about during the session. The students were further told about the roots of Yamaha, which dated back in the year 1897 when it was first launched as a piano and reed organ manufacturing company, then titled as Nippon Gakki Company, Limited. Eventually in the year 1954, company started building a single cylinder, two-stroke street bike titled ‘YA-1’. The success of YA-, in the year 1955, resulted in the founding of Yamaha Motor Corp. Ltd. The students were further explained about the three Yamaha plants functioning in India, namely in Surajpur(1985), Faridabad and the latest one in Chennai.
The students were further acquainted with IYM’s 2 functionally independent entities named Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. (YMIS) that caters to the sales and marketing needs of the company and Yamaha Motor Research and Development India Pvt. Ltd. (YMRI) that is intended to increase Yamaha’s manufacturing competitiveness through the establishment of an R&D headquarters in India.
After this brief presentation, the students were divided in groups and were shown the assembly region of the plant. From the sub assembly parts of the plant to the engine assembly and finally the body assembly region, the students got a real life exposure of what the day to day operations were really like in the Yamaha Plant. The production of their Two-Wheelers namely R15 and FZ-S were underway and the students were presented with the wealth of knowledge by the Yamaha accomplices and workers who made them understand the various activities and challenges faced everyday by the employees.
After being shown the assembly line, the students were introduced to Mr V. Raina(Engine Assyhead, IYM) who had the attitude and the substance of a genius. He answered the queries of all the students and gave them a better understanding of the plant and its history. But his genius didn’t just lie in the technical department. He provided the students with life skills that he has imbibed throughout his life and asked them to follow their heart and instincts above all else. He motivated the students through his eloquent speech and made them feel confident and highly enthused about the future.
In conclusion it can be said that the visit not only proved to be a good lesson in corporate ethics and values for the students, but also a formidable step in the direction of success and erudition.

INDUSTRIAL VISIT TO PARAM DAIRY (16 July, 2016)
PREPARED BY: ARCHIT KHANDUJA, ANSHUL MASIH & ADITI KUMARI (PGDM, SECTION A)
The Industrial visit being the one of the first out of campus activity since our orientation brought us into a real and new world of Industry interfacing and practices. The news made us to think more about what we could gain from an industry being a management student. The experience which we had on site cleared all the thoughts. Few critical processing steps which we noticed at the site of dairy production are worth mentioning:
1. Sequencing and ordering: As the first step of processing, cans weighing 44-45 litres are sent into the processing unit, through a conveyer belt. The machine and labour are so
Organised that not single can gets disordered.The milk is procured from village level groups (VLG) and farmer level group (FML).
Takeaway for the students: Organising yourself from the very first day is the first step of success ladder.
2. Initial testing: The cans entering in a sequence are tested and weighed for ethyl alcohol content, taste, flavour, or any other abnormality. The billing to the supplier is done on this testing basis. The next tests are clot and boil test (COB), fat test (CLR) and then the milk is sent to chillers which had the capacity of 10,000 litres per hour.
Takeaway for the students: A person with true capability is never afraid of tests.
3. Pasteurization: In the pasteurization unit milk is boiled and cooled to match the required purity standards. Next it is sent to low fat and high fat separation units.
4. Final testing: Once the milk is processed, before conversion to final products it is tested for bacteria or any impurity.
Takeaway for the students: A solid foundation is a guarantee of building above.
5. Milk products:
1. Curd& butter milk: Milk is fermented and sent to incubation centres with different temperatures -5 degree Celsius and 43 degree Celsius.
2. Ghee and butter: Milk is sent to centrifugal machines where fat separates out completely, and then for the production of ghee it is sent to Ghee settling tank(GST), and part for butter production, and finally for packaging.
3. Paneer: Paneer processing takes place separately and sequentially packed and supplied.
4. Flavoured milk: The most delicious category of the products of the dairy is one of the final products.
5. Milk powder: The powder production unit is the most rigorous process of dairy as it changes the state of milk completely. The processing units are very noisy but truly efficient.
Takeaway for the students: You never know how much potential you have until you start exploring.
6. Packaging: The final products are packaged in packaging centres at about -1 degree Celsius.
SUPPLY CHAIN: Demand- Procurement -Testing & processing -Packaging- Distribution

Industrial Visit To Jakson plant (PGDM-I year, Batch 15-17)
On 1st August 2015 we had a scheduled visit to the Jakson Plant. The visit was planned in the afternoon and occurred between 1300 and 1700 hrs.
The entire visit can be elaborated in two categories:
1) Interactive session/ Briefing with HR Head: Mr.Sanjeev Sharma, the HR head for the plant furnished us with a brief introduction to the plant. The Jakson plant at Greater Noida, is a private entity with a headcount of around 300 employees. Around 25 of these are on permanent payroll whereas the rest are on contractual basis. We could also glean that Jakson has struck collaboration with Cummins engg. for procurement and usage of their engines. This vital nature of this collaboration was the zone based division of rival companies which gave all companies employing Cummins Engines a niche and profitable. We were also given an insight on how Jakson is diversifying its businesses into hospitality (Hotel chain modelled on Ginger Inn. By Tata) and Education (Jakson colleges and schools) sectors.
2) Visit to the assembly line: This part of the visit was a practical tour of how the plant functioned. The Jakson plant basically was an assembly unit which dealt with building Gensets (15-25 avg.). Jakson had developed its own technology to counter the noise the engine produced by employing a technique called “canopying”. This managed to cut the noise level by about 75-80% (as stated). This also happened to be the USP of the Genset and was responsible for providing the edge it deserved in the market. The cooling system, powder painting, control system design and manufacturing of the enclosures were done by Jakson. The waste which the plant generated in terms of metal scrap chiefly from cutting/shearing and welding purposes were completely being recycled (as stated) and employed for further usage.
We also realised that Jakson had ventured into solar power utilisation and had planned to make its entire plant self sustained using this renewable energy. They had also been able to carve a niche market by building the first solar powered Genset in India. They had also ventured into solar RO which gives clean potable water using reverse osmosis and planned to promote the same in rural India.
The Visit also provided an opportunity to interact with Shop floor workers and labourers. We were able to understand the routine operation of the plant and were also given impetus to ponder on how and where automation of processes could be done.
The visit was beneficial to understand the operation of a plant and to study the working of industries and the importance of remaining relevant by constant value addition to a product through research and development.
Industrial Visit to Paswara Paper Mill
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt DisneyA Manufacturing Industry Visit not only gives students the opportunity to get an idea about the functioning of a plant but also helps them understand the ground realities of the running of such a huge business.
Paswara Papers Ltd. is a PASWARA GROUP Company based in India and engaged inthe manufacturing of Kraft Paper & Paper Board to cater to the Specialty Paper Market in India. It all started in 1984 when the first unit was setup at Mohiuddinpur, Distt. – Meerut (U.P) for manufacturing Straw Board with 15 Tons Per Day Capacity. In the year 1996 the unit underwent a major change and stopped the production of Paper boards altogether and started manufacturing M.G. Kraft Board, a more Superior Grade of Board to meet the increasing demand of the market. Now the company intends to install another Kraft Paper Plant by using Triple Wire Technology and also plans to incorporate all the latest equipment to have a cost effective production to produce 140 GSM to 350 GSM Kraft Paper / Liner to meet increasing demand of Kraft Paper / Liner in the Country using 100% Waste Paper as its main Raw Material. The company also envisages to install its own Bio-mass based Captive Power Plant.
The students of Section-B were privileged to get to visit The Paswara Paper Mill where they got to witness the production of Kraft Paper and Paper Boards. While the production facility was truly fascinating, the water treatment practices employed by the plant were a true inspiration. Added to this, is the fact that the scrap paper that they are left with at the end of a cycle is converted back to pulp and used again for making paper. The efficient and responsible usage of resources by the company was a sight to behold.
Being Management students with a very hectic schedule we were unable to really get to know our classmates well but during the course of our journey to Meerut we made firm friends with new mates and bonded even more with old ones. The joy of playing silly games and mindlessly chattering away like magipies was a refreshing change from the stress of project deadlines.
We would like to thank The BIMTECH Family for providing us this opportunity and look forward even more visits in the near future.
Visit to GOPALJEE DAIRY (PGDM-Operations Students, Batch 13-15)
Date: 18th October, 2014
The batch of Operations Management (PGDM & PGDM-IB 2013-15) visited Gopaljee Dairy Foods on 18th October at Siyana Garh Road, Bulandshahr. This formed a part of internal evaluation of the subject ‘Logistics & Warehousing Management’. A total of 17 students along with Prof. Manoj Pant visited the Village Level Collection (VLC) Center under Gopaljee Dairy Foods which was around 5 kms from the dairy processing plant. There were a total of 147 VLCs within 35km radius. VLC provided a clear picture as to how the milk obtained from the farmers undergone sample testing before sending it to the processing & packaging center.
After sample testing if found to be within the prescribed limits (SNF-Solid Note Fat), the milk was sent to the processing & packaging unit with the help of company owned pick up vans. Logistics was done in such a way that every vehicle is filled with a capacity of 800 litres. All the vehicles try to reach the plant around 10 am so that the milk can be chilled for processing without any problem of milk getting rotten.
