National Productivity Council (NPC) in association with Asian Productivity Organization (APO), Japan established Centre of Excellence on IT for Industry 4.0 (CoE: IT for I4.0) in June, 2017 with the following objectives:
CETEE is the culmination of Indo-Japanese Governmental Co-operation and has been implemented with the assistance of Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE),
Ministry of Power, Govt. of India, New Energy Development Organization (NEDO), Govt. of japan.
CETEE aims to achieve these objectives through its state of the art Hands-on Training facility to impart the advanced Energy Efficiency Technology and Techniques in the field of energy efficiency. CETEE is based on "learning by doing" pedagogy where trainees are exposed to "real-industry" projects.
Energy Audit and Efficiency Practical Training and Facilities
CETEE is equipped with the various Industrial Energy Utility equipment designed to demonstrate practically various aspects of energy efficiency opportunities and Energy conservation technique as applicable in industries. Participants themselves can operate the equipments and change the operating parameters to learn the impact of efficient operation, change to energy saving mode, conduct testing for performance evaluation of systems through:
The word quality is often used indiscriminately for many different meanings. Quality can be defined as “fitness for use,” “customer satisfaction,” “doing things right the first time,” or “zero defects.” These definitions are acceptable because quality can refer to degrees of excellence. Webster’s dictionary defines quality as “an inherent characteristic, property or attribute.” QReview will define quality as a characteristic of a product or process that can be measured. Quality control is the science of keeping these characteristics or qualities within certain bounds.
In a manufacturing or service environment, there are two major categories of quality: quality of design and quality of conformance. A poorly designed product will not function properly regardless of how well it meets its specifications. Conversely, a product that does not conform to excellent design specifications will not properly perform its intended function.
A quality system is a mechanism that coordinates and maintains the activities needed to ensure that the characteristics of products, processes or services are within certain bounds. A quality system involves every part of an organization that directly or indirectly affects these activities. Typically, the quality system is documented in a quality manual and in the associated documents that specify procedures and standards.
The Seven Basic Tools of Quality (also known as 7 QC Tools) originated in Japan when the country was undergoing major quality revolution and had become a mandatory topic as part of Japanese’s industrial training program. These tools which comprised of simple graphical and statistical techniques were helpful in solving critical quality related issues. These tools were often referred as Seven Basics Tools of Quality because these tools could be implemented by any person with very basic training in statistics and were simple to apply to solve quality-related complex issues.
