(viii) 5-S implementation in at Diesel shed/KJM.

5–S is a workplace organization method which serves as a foundation to Lean Management & Total Productive Maintenance. The 5-S principles ultimately aim to reduce 7 wastes of Lean Management namely Rework, Inventory, Waiting, Motion, Transportation, Over-production & Over-processing.

By using 5 steps which are direct translation to their Japanese words namely, Sorting, Set in order, Shining, Standardization & Sustenance, it aims to transform the ethos of housekeeping & general workstation management.

This system has been implemented in CGS section, Antistatic Room, Air brake, Gauge, Compressor , Heat Exchanger, FIP section, WWG,CC and LAB of Diesel shed/KJM till now. The process flow has been rearranged in a way to organize Receiving, Overhauling, testing & Storage workstations & procedures in a sequential manner. Component and Spare parts have been designated specific places with clear identification of each rack & bin with alphabets and numbers.

A guiding booklet containing component names & its location is also placed in a easily approachable place to ensure tracing of any component within a minute.

(xi) IMS  implementation in at Diesel shed/KJM.

                 Informal Internal Audits - 3 nos completed . Quality Objectives Review Meeting on 27-04-2019. Target date of                                   Management Review Meeting on 01-05-2019. Pre-Assessment Auditing Taregt on 15-05-2019. Auditing Target on
