Maruti invests Rs 10 cr in centre for excellence

Our Bureau

New Delhi , April 19

MARUTI Udyog has invested Rs 10 crore in setting up a `centre for excellence' in collaboration with its suppliers.

The centre will provide consultancy and training support to Maruti's suppliers and sales network to enable them to achieve world-class standards in quality, cost, service and technology orientation. The centre will work closely with Maruti's partners to implement world-class practices such as TQM, TPM and TOPS (team oriented problem solving techniques), apart from training Maruti's employees in quality related issues. The centre is registered as a `not-for-profit' society. While a few leading suppliers have implemented TPM, TQM and lean management practices with the help of international consultants, others are handicapped by inadequate facilities, lack of exposure and absence of a benchmark in India. The centre will help these units to upgrade.
