Description

 

It is not just enough for MBA students to know the Maintenance management processes. With most organizations opting for computerized processes, students need to be familiar with the automated processes. There is more demand for professionals with exposure to automated business processes, and more so for those with hands on training on some Maintenance Management systems.

 

Whereas most courses on automated processes cover the routine stuff like familiarizing the students with application packages like Maintenance Information System or ERP, this course goes much beyond. Since it comes from Prem Kamble, a CIO with over 25 years of industry experience, it aims to equip the MBA students with all aspects of automation that their job will demand -  not only as Maintenance executives, but also future Maintenance managers and as Material Department Heads.

 

flwr4_smallWith his very close interactions with users and keen observations of people during his tenure as CIO, Prem Kamble knows that software users need to play different important roles in the automation process apart from simply using the product effectively. MBAs not only need to know the nitty-gritty’s of using the product optimally, they should be able to perform the role of Maintenance Business Analysts to improve automated processes, to define the specifications of automated Maintenance processes in case they are part of the implementation team. Most important of all, they need to be able to, as managers and future Heads of Maintenance Management Departments, be able to manage the transition to automated systems which is often the most difficult last mile of any automation project. When Maintenance Information System is implemented in your department, you as Maintenance managers will play a very critical role which is more important than the role of IT Manager when it comes to the success or failure of the implementation process. This course will make you capable to effectively play that important role as a prime driver of change in your department.

 

So the course prepares the students to be effective users, IT-Driven change managers, effective business analysts to define and improve automated processes within their department. They will be able to smartly and intelligently interact with the IT folks to get the best out of them. They can also take up roles as Business Analysts or Functional Specialists in IT companies.
