As part of the Mentorship program, the students of the second semester PGDM and MBA – Team Kryptonites and Team Crew In Action were taken to the company of their choice on 10th May, 2016.
The group visited Schneider Electric, a unit that assembles Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), PLC panels, PCB Boards, Energy meters and Relays. They were taken to the shop floor and explained the assembly process, quality control methods ,supply chain details, quantity produced per month, turnaround time for every order, the numeric and bio-metric security systems, technology used, inventory management system, strict rules followed for the production process and safety measures.
