SAMPLING Size: 40 responses Sampling units: OEMs, control panel manufacturers, Atomic power plants, Techniques: judgmental analysis, percentage analysis, SPSS. Scaling technique: likert 5-point scale Scale Poor bad accepted good excellent Ratings 1 2 3 4 5
FINDINGS 1. QUALITY Inference: In the analysis conducted, there is no quality improvement in last 5 years.
Inference: In the analysis, we found that customer’s are facing serious labeling problem Cont…….
LOW VOLTAGE Inference: From the research conducted, there is a huge market for 690v NH fuses
High speed Inference: In the research conducted, found that high speed fuses fails to protecting the motors at HP power supply
ELECTRONIC Inference: From the clients point of view, glass body can make them comfortable while using the super caps, inductors etc.
SALES Inference: In the research conducted, there is a shortage of sales force
HYPOTHESIS TEST 1 Power conduction vs. circuit protection Power conduction in PCB and circuit protection are dependant CHI-SQUARE TEST Inference: The value of the chi-square is .026 which is less than .05 and so the hypothesis is accepted and there is a relation exits. If there is proper power conduction the circuit protection will be in a proper manner Value Df Asymp. Sig. (2-sided) Pearson Chi-Square 28.649 a 16 .026 Likelihood Ratio 28.720 16 .026 Linear-by-Linear Association .453 1 .501 N of Valid Cases 40 a. 24 cells (96.0%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is .05.
HYPOTHESIS TESTS 2 CHI-SQUARE TEST Sales engineer visits vs. effective order process No of visits made by sales engineer and quick order processing are dependent. Inference: The value of the chi-square test .018 which is less than .05 so the hypothesis is accepted and the relation is exists. If there is a sales engineer visit is above 2 times in a month then order processing will be more efficient Value df Asymp. Sig. (2-sided) Pearson Chi-Square 30.098 a 16 .018 Likelihood Ratio 28.194 16 .030 Linear-by-Linear Association 13.850 1 .000 N of Valid Cases 40 a. 24 cells (96.0%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is .30.
Lead time has to be decreased while importing the materials from USA
PROJECT IMPLICATIONS ON BUSINESS MODEL Value assessment Research Promotion criteria Implemen tation Existing product Gaps in user value Promoted product
LIMITATIONS Feedback was collected from south east and south west regions of India on which research has been conducted. Examined applications: Wind mill manufacturers Control panel manufacturers OEMs Short span of time(40 days) Sample size was also 40 This study is may not be generalizable to all regions as well as all types of applications
