Chapter 1: INTRODUCTION TO THE PROJECT

1.1 Significance of the Study

Siemens is a global leader when it comes to engineering sector. It manufactures almost all the heavy electrical devices such as from transformer to miniature circuit breaker. Siemens is well known for its stringent quality norms. It has been successful to differentiate itself from the competitors on grounds of quality. Project aimed at compiling a new quality control procedure manual from the existing manuals such as Site manual, quality manual, safety manual. So that the new manual formed would be in accordance with the international quality standards such as ISO 9001 & OSHAS18001. There were Three parts of the study: 1. Understanding the IPM department Operations for quality control: IPM(integral Plant maintenance) department renders plant maintenance services to companies across globe when it comes to Siemens India it serves to around 33 different companies across India. Siemens have a very well defined and guided procedure for quality control. The approach used to get the know- how of the department was the primary research of Quality manual, site manual & Safety manual. The Site manual according to its name consisted of information regarding the site operations for e.g. Standard site operating procedures, site protocol during the project, it also comprised of information regarding the minute of the things such as for raising a scaffolding .all the manuals were written in a manner so that it could give a complete overview of standard operating procedure followed by the department. 2. Studying the international quality standards: Quality is of great importance for the companies around the world to thrive in this competitive environment. As in this global era every company is bound to follow the different quality, environment and safety norms of all the countries where it operates. there are many standards practiced all round the world some prominent among them are ISO9001 & OSHAS 18001. Which specifies the quality, safety and environment protection practices which must be followed by a company all round the world 3. Formulating a new quality control procedure manual: Main task was to study and then formulate the existing Siemens manual into a new manual which would be a combination of all the three manuals and would be in accordance with the ISO9001 & OSHAS18001. The points common to both the standards were kept as it is while those which were different were incorporated into the manual based upon the need.

1.2 Scope of the Study

compiling a new quality control procedure manual for IPM department from the existing manuals such as Site manual, quality manual, safety manual. So that the new manual formed would be in accordance with the international quality standards such as ISO 9001 & OSHAS18001.and thereby it would be an useful tool for the management and the employees to assure quality to the customer

1.3 Objective of the Study


1. To understand the IPM department operations. 2. To analyze the current quality control procedure. 3. Study the need and compatibility and need of international standard and study them in

detail.
4. Integrate the existing manual along with the global standards .

1.4 Literature Review

To go ahead with the project a detailed primary research study was required ,which would include understanding the existing quality standards at Siemens then comparing with the global standards and then finally formulating a new standard which would be in accordance with this global standards Now lets have a brief overview of the Global standards:

ISO9001: This International Standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization

needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

All requirements of this International Standard are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size and product provided. Where any requirement(s) of this International Standard cannot be applied due to the nature of an organization and its product, this can be considered for exclusion. Where exclusions are made, claims of conformity to this
2

International Standard are not acceptable unless these exclusions are limited to requirements within Clause 7, and such exclusions do not affect the organization's ability, or responsibility, to provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. The organization shall establish, document, implement and maintain a quality management system and continually improve its effectiveness in accordance with the requirements of this International Standard. The organization shall:

determine the processes needed for the quality management system and their application throughout the organization, determine the sequence and interaction of these processes, determine criteria and methods needed to ensure that both the operation and control of these processes are effective, ensure the availability of resources and information necessary to support the operation and monitoring of these processes, monitor, measure where applicable, and analyse these processes, and implement actions necessary to achieve planned results and continual improvement of these processes.

These processes shall be managed by the organization in accordance with the requirements of this International Standard. Where an organization chooses to outsource any process that affects product conformity to requirements, the organization shall ensure control over such processes. The type and extent of control to be applied to these outsourced processes shall be defined within the quality management system. The quality management system documentation shall include

documented statements of a quality policy and quality objectives, a quality manual, documented procedures and records required by this International Standard, and documents, including records, determined by the organization to be necessary to ensure the effective planning, operation and control of its processes.

The adoption of a quality management system should be a strategic decision of an organization. The design and implementation of an organization's quality management system is influenced by its organizational environment, changes in that environment, and the risks associated with that environment, its varying needs, its particular objectives, the products it provides, the processes it employs, its size and organizational structure.

It is not the intent of this International Standard to imply uniformity in the structure of quality management systems or uniformity of documentation. The quality management system
3

requirements specified in this International Standard are complementary to requirements for products. Information marked "NOTE" is for guidance in understanding or clarifying the associated requirement. This International Standard can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies, to assess the organization's ability to meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to the product, and the organization's own requirements OSHAS18001 OHSAS 18001 has been developed to be compatible with the ISO 9001:2000 (Quality) and ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental) management systems standards, in order to facilitate the integration of quality, environmental and occupational health and safety management systems by organizations, should they wish to do so. This Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) Standard specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, to enable an organization to control its OH&S risks and improve its OH&S performance. It does not state specific OH&S performance criteria, nor does it give detailed specifications for the design of a management system. This OHSAS Standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to:

establish an OH&S management system to eliminate or minimize risks to personnel and other interested parties who could be exposed to OH&S hazards associated with its activities; implement, maintain and continually improve an OH&S management system; assure itself of its conformity with its stated OH&S policy; demonstrate conformity with this OHSAS Standard by: making a self-determination and self-declaration, or seeking confirmation of its conformance by parties having an interest in the organization, such as customers, or seeking confirmation of its self-declaration by a party external to the organization, or seeking certification/registration of its OH&S management system by an external organization.

All the requirements in this OHSAS Standard are intended to be incorporated into any OH&S management system. The extent of the application will depend on such factors as the OH&S policy of the organization, the nature of its activities and the risks and complexity of its operations. This OHSAS Standard is intended to address occupational health and safety, and is not intended to address other health and safety areas such as employee wellbeing/wellness programmes, product safety, property damage or environmental impacts.
The organization shall establish, document, implement, maintain and

continually improve an OH&S management system in accordance with the requirements of this OHSAS Standard and determine how it will fulfil these requirements. The organization shall define and document the scope of its OH&S management system. Top management shall define and authorize the organizations OH&S policy and ensure that within the defined scope of its OH&S management system it:
4

is appropriate to the nature and scale of the organizations OH&S risks; includes a commitment to prevention of injury and ill health and continual improvement in OH&S management and OH&S performance; includes a commitment to at least comply with applicable legal requirements and with other requirements to which the organization subscribes that relate to its OH&S hazards; provides the framework for setting and reviewing OH&S objectives; is documented, implemented and maintained; is communicated to all persons working under the control of the organization with the intent that they are made aware of their individual OH&S obligations; is available to interested parties; and is reviewed periodically to ensure that it remains relevant and appropriate to the organization.

The organization shall establish, implement and maintain documented OH&S objectives, at relevant functions and levels within the organization. The objectives shall be measurable, where practicable, and consistent with the OH&S policy, including the commitments to the prevention of injury and ill health, to compliance with applicable legal requirements and with other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and to continual improvement. When establishing and reviewing its objectives, an organization shall take into account the legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and its OH&S risks. It shall also consider its technological options, its financial, operational and business requirements, and the views of relevant interested parties.

Chapter 2: INTRODUCTION TO THE INDUSTRY

Engineering Engineering is the largest industrial sector in India, and now recovering from the economic crisis that adversely affected this industry, many global companies are outsourcing projects to benefit from low manufacturing costs 5

Engineering is defined as the discipline of acquiring and applying technical, scientific, and mathematical knowledge to design and implement structures, machines, systems, and processes that safely realize a desired objective. It is a broad discipline which is often broken down into several sub-disciplines namely chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. With the rapid advancement of technology many new fields are fast gaining prominence and new branches are developing such as aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, genetic engineering, nuclear engineering and robotics etc. The major end-user industries for heavy engineering goods are power, infrastructure, steel, petrochemicals, mining, railways, automobiles and textiles, etc. Meanwhile, light engineering goods are essentially used as inputs by the heavy engineering industry. Capacity creation in these end-user industries is driving growth of the engineering industry. Given the vastness of the field, the engineering industry has an enormous potential of creating new jobs. The Engineering sector is the largest of all industrial sectors in India. The sector is relatively fragmented at the top, where technological and capital requirements are high, but it is highly fragmented at the lower end. The industry can be broadly divided into 2 segments; heavy engineering and light engineering. Heavy engineering goods such as capital good and equipment account for the bulk of domestic production and leading large players are mostly focused on this segment, producing high-value products using high-end technology. The light engineering goods segment in comparison is highly competitive and dominated by small players who typically manufacture lower-value added products such as castings and bearing etc. The largest players include Larsen & Toubro, ABB and BHEL. Performance The economic crisis in 2008, ensued a volatile year for the Indian engineering and capital goods industry. The credit crisis induced a liquidity crunch and adversely affected sentiment and growth in industrial and manufacturing industries. Though there has been a pickup in activities since March 2009, many companies still remain cautious in terms of making further capital investments until greater stability is achieved. That said, the order books of most look robust and the pundits believe the industrys prospects will resume their spectacular positive trajectory shortly.

Growth potential India is increasingly being preferred by global companies as an outsourcing destination as it enjoys lower labor cost and better designing capabilities and as they recover from the crisis, 6

international demand will push forward once more. Domestic demand growth in this sector is being fuelled by increasing expenditure in core sectors such as railways, private sector investments and the rapid speed at which the projects are implemented. In addition, the governments focus on investment and development in the power and infrastructure sectors is also having a strong impact. For example, leading players ABB and BHEL derive 60%-75% of their revenues from supplying equipments to the power sector. And with the government planning to add largescale generation capacities in the eleventh (2007-12) five-year plan, the potential seems huge for the engineering majors. Market leader L&T on the other hand has over 40% of its order book in 2009 accruing from the infrastructure sector. And with the focus on building roads, highways, airports etc., this opportunity seems massive as well. Finally, if Indias nuclear deal with the US is executed, it will mean big business for companies planning to enter nuclear power generation and consequently power equipment manufacturing. Future prospects Trained professionals with some relevant experience will have the option of working with any number of world-class companies in a range of functional and industrial silos. The job categories are primarily based on designing, manufacturing, packaging or selling engineering products while ancillary jobs include construction, building and mining, amongst others. Talented candidates can look for varied and long innings in this sector and expect to reap handsome rewards in both the medium and long-term.

The project can be divided into three parts: 1. Understanding the IPM department Operations for quality control:

24

IPM(integral Plant maintenance) department renders plant maintenance services to companies across globe when it comes to Siemens India it serves to around 33 different companies across India. Siemens have a very well defined and guided procedure for quality control. The approach used to get the know- how of the department was the primary research of Quality manual, site manual & Safety manual. The Site manual according to its name consisted of information regarding the site operations for e.g. Standard site operating procedures, site protocol during the project, it also comprised of information regarding the minute of the things such as for raising a scaffolding .all the manuals were written in a manner so that it could give a complete overview of standard operating procedure followed by the department. 2. Studying the international quality standards: Quality is of great importance for the companies around the world to thrive in this competitive environment. As in this global era every company is bound to follow the different quality, environment and safety norms of all the countries where it operates. there are many standards practiced all round the world some prominent among them are ISO9001 & OSHAS 18001. Which specifies the quality, safety and environment protection practices which must be followed by a company all round the world 3. Formulating a new quality control procedure manual: Main task was to study and then formulate the existing Siemens manual into a new manual which would be a combination of all the three manuals and would be in accordance with the ISO9001 & OSHAS18001.

9.4 Key Performance Indicators


KPI are measureable parameters that indicate he on-going performance of the maintenance service; they must be realistic, achievable and objectively measurable. It is recommended that every maintenance contract agrees a set of KPIs to measure the performance or else what happens is, that the client does it subjectively and this is usually inaccurate, wide performance of the maintenance service; they must be realistic, achievable and objectively measurable. It is recommended that every maintenance contract agrees a set of KPIs to measure the performance or else what happens is, that the client does it subjectively and this is usually inaccurate, widely varying and not consistently based on the same parameters A recommended strategy is to initially agree a set of KPI that relate to the mobilization only such as; 37

Office set ups Personnel appointed Tools and equipment purchased mobilization progress against program Maintenance budget set up Reporting set up and implemented Manuals completed Continuous improvement strategy in place

Using this approach gives both parties time to agree on the ongoing KPIs and set valid targets.

The KPIs must be readily and regularly measureable The KPIs must be clearly defined to avoid confusion The KPIs must be realistic any KPI target must be achievable Performance against KPIs must be assessed every month Poor performance in particular area may be a means of identifying continuous improvement actions

Some possible KPIs are

Cost %planned maintenance Mean time between failures Mean time between repair Lost time to repair Lost time injuries Production Uptime Availability Inventory levels Number of suppliers cost of sub-contractors Cost of spares per year

Chapter 6: CONCLUSIONS, LIMITATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS


61

CONCLUSIONS:

Siemens being an industry leader the quality norms of the company are quiet stringent and efficient. The company follows the world class quality procedures hence while composing the manual there were hardly any amendments with existing quality control procedure. Which made the task of writing the quality manual quiet easy and helped saving time required for field work. And beginning everything from scratch.

LIMITATIONS:

Composing a quality control manual for such a vast organization is a huge task since it requires to cover a vast functional area.
