Annual Productivity and Oil Conservation Week was inaugurated at Malanjkhand Copper Project on February 12. The chief guest of the occasion was Dr O N Tiwari, Executive Director, Malanjkhand Copper Project. Addressing the HODs, employees, representatives of OA and trade unions, Dr Tiwari said that productivity is the key to prosperity of a nation and getting more and more with less and less is the basic essence of productivity.

Talking on the theme of Productivity Week-2018, i.e. “Industry 4.0 Leapfrog Opportunity for India” Dr. Tiwari elaborated its relevance in respect of manufacturing and service industries in India. He explained that ‘Industry 4.0’ has been used to denote the 4th generation on industrial revolution which is characterized by synergy among emerging technologies like data volumes, computational power, Internet, artificial intelligence, advance robotics, simulation etc.

Fourth generation of industrial revolution is not only important in the area of production of quality product and services by realizing higher productivity, but it is equally important in the area of environmental conservation, community development, safety and occupational health too - Dr. Tiwari said.

He also highlighted the contribution of innovation and implementation of novel ideas in one’s work area. In this regard Dr Tiwari recalled the work done in the area of Total Water Management implemented recently in the project, wherein large amount of water discarded as effluent so far has been started to take back in the system for beneficiation process through a network of pipelines and pumping stations from different collection points.
