(D(R)E(A)MING for a Quality World, Part 3, Vol 5, No. 10, pp. 4-11, October 2008

The journey to Quality World passes through the imperative of upgradation of the Quality of World. Thanks to the Gurus the embryo of good Quality was installed, and it sustains at a pace which though small, continues to accelerate. It must cross a threshold to be noticed.

The journey is however subject to some interim assessments. One is the Deming’s application prize and its senior versions. The merit list demonstrates the success achievable and achieved by Indian companies. It sustains to continue too. Following such contribution by a not so developed nation (both in terms of Quality and Technology) if each ensemble of the world attempts to contribute harmoniously to the cult of Quality, it is sure that Quality (of) World will be assured. If you are aligned, read on.

Mentoring students or children is always a tough task. But if the child is put on-perfectly- over a path to success, half the job is done (which implies: Well begun is half done). A good process control in Gita- the holy Hindu guidebook- means aligning of Karma to a higher order task. Presumably, a well honed process indeed be resorted to while rearing a child, the success of an academe is in understanding and application of popular six sigma tool DMAIC (define, measure, analyse, improve and control). Setting up of a DMAIC for obviating bad results was argued in previous part “It is a Bad-Bad result ( QW, May 2009)”. To continue the ‘Improvement’ on…

Workshop on business management

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, June 22
“If one wants to check pollution in one’s organisation, it does not mean that one has to incur an additional financial burden”. This was stated by Mr H.S. Bains, Chairman, Haryana Pollution Control Board, while addressing participants of the one-day workshop on ‘Integrating quality and environment towards total business management’ held here today.

Attended by 36 participants from various foundries, pharmaceutical, acrylics and chemical manufacturing units etc, the workshop, first of its kind in the region, was jointly organised by the Institute of Indian Foundrymen and International Certification Limited.

Mr Bains explained how the mobil oil replacement system for generating sets was deferred for more than three months during the implementation of ISO 14000 standards.

Addressing the participants, Prof P. Thareja of the Metallurgical Engineering Department, Punjab Engineering College, stressed the need for quality equipment, energy, enviornment, quality management, reduction of waste and austerity.

Talking of eight principles of quality management and three principles of enviornment, Mr Sunil Thaman, associate vice-president, International Certifications Limited, spoke about the importance of leadership teamwork and the factual approach to decision making as tools for profitable business management.

Mr Ram Nath, general manager, SIDBI, said unless business management was linked with enviornment management, the industry would not be able to survive in the days to come. He reiterated that recycling and waste management activities were very essential for any organisation.

Mr Viney Kumar, honorary secretary of the Institute of Indian Foundrymen, proposed a vote of thanks.

All are welcome: TIME 11 am (You are invited to working Lunch)
Speaker: Prof P Thareja

A S Sekhon was an epitome of constant learning. Apart from his own love for engineering progress, Sekhon was as enthusiastic to promote others for learning as he was from himself. It was only this constant urge for engineering progress that the today’s memorial lecture is being dedicated to the discipline of constant Renewal by Learning. The true homage to Sehkon will be in resuming a progressive engineering acumen for the engineers such that they at least launch a competent society, if not a civilization of envy.

It is not a coincidence that ‘the discipline of constant Renewal by Learning’ was imbibed in the very title of soul of “Awatar Singh Sekhon”. While Awatar means a new incarnation, Avatar also makes the iconic presence visible to this universe. The forthcoming Awatar Singh Sekhon memorial lecture is hence being planned around the ‘Sekhon’ model, to inculcate not only the rudiments of an healthy and ever learning engineering society, but also disseminate the landmarks in the journey to establish an Avataric presence.
