Maratha Mandir’s Babasaheb Gawde Institute of Management Studies organized a virtual Industrial Visit for their students to the manufacturing unit of Siemens switchgears on Tuesday 7th September 2021.
Mr. Ganesh Pitale of Siemens, welcomed the students to the virtual industrial visit to Siemens switch gear plant at Kalwa. The students were given an insight into the entire production process for switch gears through a virtual tour of the various departments and machineries used in manufacturing the same. After familiarising the students with the entire setup of the production process in a simplistic manner, they also shared how the company had introduced certain systems which would facilitate reduction in wastage of man hours, and in turn improve the overall production efficiency.
Notwithstanding the virtual nature of this industrial visit, the students gained fair amount of knowledge about a workplace and the processes adopted in a manufacturing unit, and also became aware of the benefits of upgrading one’s technology / systems in order to get optimum possible output in minimal production time, thus saving on costs and increasing the company’s profitability. Students were very appreciative about the industrial visit since they would be better equipped to use the knowledge gained and put it to practice post their placement.
