COMMON SIZE STATEMENT In the comparative financial statements it is difficult to comprehend the changes over the years in the relation to total assets, total liabilities and capital or total net sales. Because of this limitation, it is impossible to make comparison between two or more firms of an industry. The reason is that there is no common base of comparison of absolute figures.

Trend analysis is calculated only for some important items, which can be logically connected with each other. Unless the figure is connected with each other figures they are not as much meaningful. For example, trend analysis for sales, though shows a clear-cut increasing or decreasing tendency. Becomes meaningful in the real sense when it is compared.

  25. 25. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 25 REASON FOR LOSS 1. Decrease in sales: - With the help of Trend Analyses, we come to know that the sales is decrease by 8.92% in the year 200-2001 (in the year 1999-2000) i.e. 100 % ( as base year) and it is 91.08% in year 2000-2001. 2. Increase in loan (secured loan): - In the year 2000-2001 company took extra loan i.e.9.88% and because of this they had to paid extras interest and hence loss increase 3. Increase in miscellaneous expenses: - If we considered in 1999-2000 the miscellaneous expenses were 100%, the next year 2000-2001 was 113.30%. For the help of trend analyses we can see that miscellaneous expenses also increased by 13.30% it was another reason for losses.
  26. 26. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 26 Ratio analysis Introduction The financial statement i.e. the income statement, the balance sheet. The income statement, the statement of retained and the statement of changes in financial position report what has actually happened to earnings during a specified period. The balance sheet presents a summary of financial position of the company at a given point of time. The statement of retained earnings reconciles income earned during the year and any dividends distributed with the change in retained earnings between the start and end of the financial year under study. The statement of changes in financial position provides a summary of funds flow during the period of financial statement. A ratio analysis is a very powerful analytical tool for measuring performance of an organization. The ratio analyses concentrates on inter-relationship among the figures appearing in the aforementioned four financial statements. The ratio analysis helps the management to analyses the past performance of the firm and to make further projection. Ratio analysis allows interested parties like shareholder, investors, creditors, Government and analysts to make an evaluation of certain aspects of a firm s performance. Ratio analysis is a process of comparison of one figure against another, which make a ratio and the appraisal of the ratios to make proper analyses about the strength and weakness of the firms operations. The calculation of ratios is a relatively easy and simple task but the proper analyses and interpretation of the ratios can be made only by the skilled analyst. While interpreting the financial information, the analyst has to be careful in limitations imposed by the accounting concepts and methods of valuation. Information of non-financial nature will also be taken into consideration before a meaningful analyses is made. Ratio analysis is extremely helpful in providing valuable insight into a company s financial picture. Ratios normally pinpoint a business strength and weakness in two ways: Ratios provide an easy way to compare today performance with past Ratios depict the areas in which a particular business is competitively advantaged or disadvantages through comparing ratios to those of other business of the same size within the same industry.
  27. 27. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 27 CLASSIFICATION OF RATIOS Ratio may be classified in a number of ways keeping in view the particular purpose. Ratio indicating profitability is calculated on the basis of the profit and loss A/ C; those indicating financial are computed on the basis of balance sheet. To achieve analysis effective understanding of the profitability and financial position of business, ratio may be classified as: A) LIQUIDITY RATIO: The short-term liquidity ratio, which measures the liquidity of the firm and its ability to meet it maturing short term obligations. Liquidity is defined as the ability to realize value in money, the most liquid of assets. It refers to the ability to pay n cash, the obligations that are due. Following are the main types of the liquidity ratio. 1) Current Ratio 2) Quick Ratio` 3) Net-Working Capital Ratio B) LEVERAGE RATIO: The long-term financial stability of the firm may be consider upon its ability to meet all its liabilities, including those not currently payable. The ratios which are important in measuring the long term solvency ratio are as follows:- 1) Total Debt to Equity Ratio 2) Debt to total Capital Ratio 3) Interest Coverage Ratio C) PROFITABILITY RATIO: The purpose of study and analysis of profitability ratios are to help assess the adequacy of profits earned by the company and also to discover weather the Profitability is increasing or declining. The profitability of the firm is the net result of a large number of the policies and decisions. The profitability ratios show the combined effects of liquidity, asset management and debt management on operating results. Profitability ratios are measured with reference to sales, capital employed, total assets employed, shareholders fund etc. The major profitability rates are as follows:-

MBA Program 2005-2007 28 1) Ebit To Sales Ratio 2) Eat To Sales 3) Working Capital To Net Assets 4) Return On Capital D) TURNOVER RATIO: Activity ratio or turnover ratio measure how effectively the firm employs its resources. These ratios are called turnover ratios which involve comparison between the level of sales and investment in various accounts inventories, debtors, fixed assets, etc, activity ratios are used to measure the speed with which various accounts are converted into sales or cash. The following activity ratios are calculated for analysis. 1) Inventory Ratio 2) Fixed Assets Turnover Ratio 3) Fixed Assets Turnover Ratio 4) Debtors Turnover Ratio 5) Debtor Collection Period
  29. 29. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 29 Meaning and Graphically Representation of Each Types of Ratio 1) Current ratio-: This ratio measures the solvency of the company in the short term. Current assets are those assets, which can be converted in to cash within a year. Current liabilities and provision are those liabilities that are payable within a year. A current ratio 2:1 indicates a highly solvent position. Banks consider a current ratio 1.33:1 as the minimum acceptable level for providing working capital finance. The constituents of the current assets are as important as the current assets themselves for evaluation of a company solvency position. A very high current ratio will have adverse impact on the profitability of the origination. A high current ratio may be due to the pilling up of inventory, inefficiency in collection of debtors, high balances in cash and bank A/C. proper investment.

Quick Ratio & Liquid Ratio: - Quick ratio is used, as a measure of the company s ability to meet is current obligation. Since BOD is secured by the inventories. The other current assets must be sufficient to meet other current liabilities. A quick ratio of 1:1 indicates highly solvent position. This ratio is also called acid test ratio. This ratio serves as a supplement to the current ratio in analyzing liquidity.

Debt Equity Ratios: - Capital is derived from two sources shares and loans. It is quite likely for only shares to be issued when the company is formed but loans are invariably raised at some later date. There are numerous reasons for issuing loan capital. The formula of ratio is = Long Term Debt Shareholders funds The ratio indicates the relationship between loan funds and net worth of the company, which is known as gearing. If the proportion of debt to equity is low, a company is said to be low geared, and vice versa. A debt equity ratio of 2:1 is the norm accepted by financial institutions for financing of projects. Higher debt- equity ratio may be permitted for highly capital intensive industries like petrochemicals, fertilizers, powers etc. the higher the gearing, the more volatile the return to the shareholders. A debt equity ratio, which shows a declines trend over the years, is usually taken as a positive sign reflecting on increased cash accrual and debt and debt repayment in act, one of the indicatory a unit turning sick is a risky debt equity ratio. Usually when calculating ratio, the preference share capital is excluded from debt, but if the ratio is show effect of use of fixed interest sources on earnings available to the

Shareholders equity Ratio: - It is assumed that larger the proportion of the shareholders equity, the stronger is the financial position of the firm. This ratio will supplement the debt-equity ratio. In this ratio the relationship is the establishment between the shareholders funds and the total assets. Shareholders funds represents both equity and preference capital plus reserves and surplus less losses a reduction in shareholders equity signaling the over dependence on the outsiders for the long term financial needs and this carriers the risk of the higher levels of gearing. This ratio indicates that the degree to which unsecured creditors are protected against loss in the event of liquidation.

An interest cover 2:1 is considered reasonable by financial institution. A very high ratio indicates that the firm is conservative in using debt and a very low ratio indicates excessive use of debt. The formula of ratio is= Profit before interest depreciation & tax Interest The inventory turnover ratio measures hoe many times a company inventory has been sold during the year. If the inventory turnover ratio has decreased from past, it means that either inventory is growing or sales are dropping. In addition to that, if a firm has a turnover that is slower than for its industry, then there may be obsolete goods on hand, or inventory turnover has impact on the liquidity of the business.

The convention is to express profit after tax and interest as a percentage of sales. This ratio reflects net profit margin on the total sales after deducting all expenses but before deducting interest and taxation. This ratio measures the efficiency of operation of the company. The net profit is arrived at from gross profit after deducting administration, selling and distribution expenses. The non operating incomes and expenses are ignored in computation of net profit before tax, depreciation and interest.

If any particular case, the return in the long run is not satisfactory, then the deficiency should be corrected or the activity be abandoned for a more favorable one. The rate of return on investment is determined by dividing net profit or income by the capital employed or investment made to achieve that profit. ROCE consists of two components i.e. I) Profit margin. II) Investment turnover.
  38. 38. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 38 It will be seen from the following formula that ROCE can be improved by increasing one or both of its components i.e. the profit margin and the investment turnover in any of the following ways: - Increasing the profit margin - Increasing the investment turnover - Increasing both profit margin and investment turnover.

  46. 46. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 46 Cost Reduction process The achievement of real and permanent reduction in the unit cost of goods manufactured or services rendered without impairing their suitability for the use intended. Reduction in the cost of product must be brought about by the elimination of wasteful and resources employed in its design, manufacture, sale and distribution. Reduction in quality of a product or the range of its uses cannot be regarded as fitting cost reduction. Cost reduction must be an attitude of mind throughout the organization. it must be organised and controlled by a senior manager, with a team of skilled people able to analyse and record business activity and find ways improves the methods used. So that costs are reduced and output increased. Cost reduction process contains the following sequences of steps-: Analyses: Every activity, whether in the office, factory, or warehouse, can be analysed and in to number of separate steps. This is done by asking questions and gathering and recording answers given. From this process of data collection, it is possible to draw a picture of the activity that enables it to be examined and improvements developed. Examination: Each activity is now examined in some detail to established whether it is a) Vital b) Secondary c) Unnecessary Vital activities are those, which directly lead to achieving the objective previously established. They become fundamental to subsequent improvement. Secondary activities do not contributed directly to achieve the objective but necessary to support and serve that vital activity. The reminder of the activities concerned is almost always necessary. As they neither contributes directly nor indirectly in achieving objective and they can not be considered necessary. When activities or components have been examined. It is possible to consider whether they should be:
  47. 47. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 47 a) Eliminated b) Combined c) Simplified. Elimination of activities and components, the most ambitious and most problematic step. The greatest saving often arises from elimination of unnecessary activities and components, and this should always be the first line of attack in spite of the problem included. Combining activities is one way of making savings in areas where the activity be eliminated. Considerable improvements can be achieved by combining activities. Developing solution: Detailed analyses and examination should lead to the development of a number of possible solutions. No solution should be overlooked or ignored because it does not seem practical. The evaluation of a solution will depend upon the knowledge of the analyst. The evaluation process matches each solution against the following requirements: Does it achieve the objectives in full? Is it practical? Does it fall within the constraints, if any, such as finance, time, physical resources, human resources etc? Is it a better way of doing the job? Does it reduce cost, if so, by hoe much? Will be acceptable to customer, employees and management? Will it stand the test of time? Selecting a solution: The choice between several solutions will depend on numerous factors including company policies, personal preferences, aesthetic appeal, and other subjective criteria. This is stage where the analyst has to make sure that everyone fully understands the advantages and disadvantages of various solutions so that a rational choice can be made. Obtaining agreement: In the evaluation stage, one of the questions asked was; will be acceptable to customers, employees and management? The answer to this must have been yes; otherwise the solution would not have passed the evaluation test. This means that final agreement to the selected solution has to be obtained by the analyst.
  48. 48. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 48 Cost Reduction Programme of Tata Motors The major cost reduction ideas implemented in all parts of the TATA Motors. Listed below are some cost reduction approaches commonly deployed. Nature of cost A) Direct material cost- Product related Tear- Down Zero based costing Value engineering Process related Supplier cost reduction programs e- Procurement Supplier base rationalization Volume negotiations B) Variable conversion cost Power consumption Fuel consumption Indirect material consumption Tools consumptions C) Fixed cost Working capital reduction Converting fixed cost to variable cost Productivity improvement Other methods
  49. 49. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 49 D) Other approaches (impacting all / most of the above areas) Process improvement Complexity management/ variety reduction Waste elimination- use of Kaizen principles Interest cost reduction. A) Direct material cost reduction a.Product related approaches: - i) Tear-Down The tear down approach is undertaken to facilitate structured analyses of all components on the vehicle by involving from diverse backgrounds to question existing assumption (design/ non-design) and further generate ideas It is basically involves tearing down of a vehicle or aggregate of a competitor, in order to identify special features/ attributes of each system / aggregate/ component as compared to TATA Motors vehicles. The basic purpose of this process is to identify areas of cost reductions in tata motors designs and process. Ideally it should be done at the design stage, however, as an on going process it can be done on established vehicles also. Methodology of teardown Identify/ study competitors on (information from the annual report etc.) Financial and cost parameters Sales volume and revenue Investment Make or buy Technology Conduct static tear-down collect information on Total number of parts Total weight Units Part details (length, thickness, weight, weld spots, validity etc) Number of fixing parts.
  50. 50. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 50 Conduct dynamic teardown collect data on Manufacturing method Number of process Man hours Assembling Process parameters Benefits for using the teardown method Cost reduction Information and awareness on latest trends Supports make Vs Buy decision making Reduction in development lead-time, process time etc. B) Zero based costing The following steps are used for conducting zero based costing Priorities components groups / sub aggregates for ZBC. Dismantle the selected aggregates/ sub assembly. Weight the components. Arrive at the input weight based on the finished weight and analysis of the manufacturing process for that component. Calculate the material cost by multiplying the weight the weighted average cost. Add to this, the conversion cost for that material group (e.g. machined components, casting, forging, rubber, plastic etc.) Add to this the intellectual cost, if any e.g. design and development of component/ tooling by the supplier. Compare this total cost with the price offered by the supplier. Identified potential and build case for discussion with suppliers for cost reduction. Renegotiate for price reduction Discuss with supplier to jointly work towards achieving potential identified
  51. 51. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 51 C) Value engineering: Value engineering is a methodology, which can be applied for value improvement in any area. It is an approach, which analyses all the functions of a product or service and the related costs involved . based on this analysis, several alternatives are identified, which can perform the same functions, while reducing the cost the product or service. Value engineering methodology consists of following steps 1. Orientation phase Select Projects to be handled by VE team Appoint The team 2 Information phase Locate Data from different sources Identify Facts Assimilate Facts in the required form 3. Functional analysis phase List The component of the hardware Prepare verb- noun description of the function for each Assembly and component Established Cost of basic functions Estimate Worth of each basic function Determine Value improvement potential 4 Creative phase Conduct Creative problem solving session Generate ideas, combine and rearrange them to provide Ways to accomplish basic function 5 Evaluation phase Decide Criteria Evaluate Ideas according to the pre-fix criteria 6 Development phase Develop New components/ assemblies for acceptance of ideas. Arrange Trials/ test runs
  52. 52. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 52 7 Recommendation phase Present To the management for approval 8 Implementation phase Implement Change in production 9 Follow up & audit phase Resolve Problems identified during implementation. Problem reported from the field, if any, to establish the change into a smooth flow up to the customer. Audit Savings and compare results with original Report Actual value improvement to the management. Following are some projects implemented by value engineering teams. 1) Fan drive arrangement- This project was successfully implemented by the engine team, which resulted in optimizing the fan drive arrangement. In this particular case, two separate belt drives were combined into one. In addition to a saving of Rs 2000, benefits of productivity improvement, variety reduction and standerdisation were also achieved. 2) Air filter assembly- Air filter assembly on a vehicle consisted of a hose and hose clip assembled on the inlet of air filter. The VE team proposed to integrate these in to one assembly. A sheet metal tube replaced the hose and it was made an integral of the air filter. b) Process related approaches: IV.Supplier cost reduction programmes- Direct material cost reduction achieved by obtaining price reductions from suppliers without reduction in either fixed or variable cost at suppliers end will result in: Reduction in bought- out for company Reduction in profit margin for the suppliers Increase in break-even volumes for the suppliers
  53. 53. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 53 The key characteristics of the supplier cost reduction programmes are as follows: Target driven Clearly defined targets Targets for suppliers as well as internal targets Targets in terms of number of proposal or ideas, savings achieved etc, Partnership approach High involvement of supplier in generation of ideas for cost reduction High involvement from company side in providing assistance to suppliers to achieve cost reduction. Benefits to both supplier and TATA Motors Win-Win situation Sharing of gains achieved through cost reduction Reward to suppliers Supplier margins protected and or improved II. e- procurement- e- procurement is internet based interactive platform for procuring any type of goods or services through the medium of reverse auction. The e- procurement tool brings tremendous benefits to the procurement process in terms of reduced cycle time, greater efficiency and transparency. e- procurement allows a buyer to invite any supplier across the world to a reverse bidding auction, the sole requirement being access to the internet. Reverse binding auction are open for a defined and limited period of time, with market price feedback available to participating suppliers. Bidding times can be extended automatically to allow for frenetic bidding activity towards the close of the auction. the system allows the highest degree of fairness to all the participants. e- procurement process has the following steps Identifying aggregate component or raw material for the auction.
  54. 54. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 54 Pre-auction preparations new supplier identification (if required), sending drawings to invited vendors concerned and resolving queries. Plan for auction fix date and time. Finalising and floating request for questions. Manual round for quotations. Conduct event. Finalise post bid allocation and raise purchase orders. Approval and development of new suppliers, if required. Tata motors tied up with a consulting firm, for conducting e- procurement through two streams i.e. full source and quick source. Under full source, Tata Motors have access to the full range of consulting services including event management and market making. Under quick source projects are managed end to end by our and involve relatively lower degree of purchase complexity. Using this process Tata Motors has procured several products such as tyres, bearings, castings or forgings, leaf springs, eat belts and services such as transportation. III. Supplier base rationalization- Supplier base rationalization consist of the following steps: 1. Categorisation of material group- Categorisation of each part in the material category in to sub- categories based on type and manufacturing process. 2. Removal of tail of supplier base: Elimination of non performing or low business value suppliers, supplying few numbers of parts. 3. Masop elimination- Elimination of Masop and identification of potential bought out suppliers. 4. Tearing of suppliers/ of loading assemblies: Identification of sub- assemblies and aggregates to be outsourced from a tier 1 supplier. 5. Supplier base consolidation- Elimination of small direct suppliers arising from outsourcing of sub- assemblies.
  55. 55. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 55 6. Removal of multi sourcing- Reduction in part- supplier combinations by moving to dual sourcing. Process of Tail removal Identify and priorities suppliers in Tail for deletion Identify c class supplier supplying. e.g. last 1 for 2% of purchase value. Priorities the suppliers for elimination based on value of business and number of parts supplied to ensure ease of capability/ capacity transfer. Suppliers with low value of business and low number of parts to be considered first for elimination. Identify potential alternative sources to which the business of the suppliers to be deleted can be transferred. IV. Volume negotiations: Though the approach appears to be useful only to the materials department, all of Tata Motors should be alert to the possibilities of negotiating a better price with existing or alternative suppliers as soon the opportunity presents itself. Some essential of a Good negotiation are: Check out price and quality of the material at some other sources company must have good knowledge of what is available from where. Based on the suppliers capacity, capability and past performance, offer him more share of business for a reduction in price. The analysis of zero based costing and product, aggregate benchmarking should be used to negotiate a reduced price.
  56. 56. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 56 B) Variable conversion cost reduction- I. Power Consumption- In Tata Motors, there are many methods by which power consumption can be controlled in plants and offices. One may take help of a third party, to find out areas of energy losses. Examples of power consumption- Electricity at unity power factor drawn from electricity boards. Optimization of capacities of various equipment through innovation. Use of furnascote special paint for heat treatment furnace. Use of timer control for machines and utilities to reduce idling losses. Purchase of wind power electricity from third party. Optimization of chilling plants and air conditioning plants in paint shops. Modification of pneumatic lines to reduce load on centralised air compressors. II.Fuel consumption- Examples of fuel consumption Use of light diesel oil (LDO) instead of certifigured LDO in paint shops. Modification of surface oven air heater to reduce hot air leakage or losses. Fine tuning of oven burners to increase efficiency of combustion. Installation of high temperature resistant sensors for operation of oven doors in automatic mode. III.Indirect material consumption- Examples of Indirect material consumption Use of belt type oil skimmer units to enhance life of coolant. Exploring of reverse auctioning opportunities for the purchase of consumables IV. Tools consumption- Examples of reduction in direct material consumption in Tata Motors plants are given as below: Use of carbide indexable tips in place of brazed carbide tools for stub axle gap milling to eliminate breakage.
  57. 57. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 57 Use of solid carbide drills in place of brazed carbide drills for front Axle beam to enhance tool life. C) Fixed cost Reduction- I. Working capital reduction- The investment in working capital is influenced by four key events in the production and sales cycle: Purchase of raw of material. Payment of raw material. Sales of finished goods. Collection of cash for sales. Tata Motors begin with the purchase of raw material or bought out, which is paid for after a certain time frame. This material is converted into finished goods and then sold to the customer. Customer pay their bills some time after the sales. The cycle completes with payment made by the customer for the goods. The faster the cycle is completed, faster are profits generated. Thus, main purpose of working capital reduction is to have shorter inventory and receivable periods. Example of How to reduce inventory in Tata Motors - Standardising the stocking norms at factories for all items. Undertaking kaizen events, which includes one piece of floe, layout changes, two bin system. Salving non-moving or slow moving inventory. Established a central receipt and documentation office (CRDO) Just in time delivers to line. II. Converting fixed cost to variable cost: In the Tata Motors, company utilized the surplus capacity (fixed cost) available in company shops, without detracting from the main responsibility of producing vehicles and in the process, converted some of the fixed costs into variable nature. In fact, these products from an important part of the non-vehicle business,
  58. 58. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 58 Some examples are given below- In addition to vehicle engines, Tata Motors engine shops also manufacture engines for industrial applications. Divisions like production engineering, forge and foundry manufacture products for external customers, to utilize their capacities. IV. Productivity improvement: In TATA Motors the manpower cost is generally at number two , only after material cost. Tata motors looking at productivity of both direct as well as indirect men.. Direct men- Direct men are those who are responsible for changing the shape of the part or assembly. thus, members of the company who are working on machines, assemblies may be group in direct men category. Example if in every production cycle the machine operator is required to wait for the previous operation to complete, the company will be forced idleness because of which company costs will go up. In such case company find ways to eliminate idleness. Similarly if the supervisor asks operators to produce parts irrespective whether required by the next machine or not, will result in increased inventories and thus additional costs. TATA Motors nave been deploying Kaizen methodology to improve productivity on the shop floor and have achieved results. The kaizen methodology employs a cross functional approach to observe wastage or Non-value adding activities in the men machine environment. at the end of two week productivity improvements, reduction in the defects, and inventories reduction of the order of 30 to 40% are achieved. IV. Other method- a) Welfare: Restructuring of reimbursement scheme for medical expenses on hospitalisation. Reduction in canteen expenses. b) Rent, rate and Taxes: Re- validation of regional offices and stockyards.
  59. 59. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 59 Discussion with competent authorities to pay optimum property tax. c) Repairs: Control on civil and electrical repairs. d) Work operation and others: Reviewed annual contracts of hardware maintenance and software contracts, work contracts for scope of work and terms operation. Reduction in travel expenses through optimizing guesthouse, rationalization of employee stay in hotels and travel discounts etc. Reduction in communication expenses through bulk discount from telephone companies and mobile service center. Reduction also available from courier companies. D) Other approach I. Process improvement- It is one of the most scientific and satisfying methods of cost reduction. it involves the redesigning of all the processes, by eliminating non value adding activities and work flow simplification, thus reducing cycle time and increasing manpower productivity. Some processes which involve disproportionate manpower and paperwork are: Ordering material and incoming inspection. Procedures for payment to supplier or contractors. Delivery, invoicing and receivables collection for product sold. Stock control and perpetual inventory methods. Production scheduling. II. Complexity management/ variety reduction- TATA Motors have added many varieties to the original list of models. this addition of varieties adds cost to the product or inventory and also occupies large space on the shop floor. This also crates confusion while assembling the products and maintaining the Bill of Materials.
  60. 60. The Financial Statement Analysis and Cost Reduction Program. MBA Program 2005-2007 60 The main purpose of complexity management is the elimination of variants that do not generate a net positive income or do not have any strategic purpose III. Waste elimination- Use of kaizen principles- Present capacity = Work (value adding)+ Waste (Non value adding) Value adding means performing work the customers are willing to pay. Customers are willing to pay for only those activities that transform materials or information to meet their demands and expectations. Wastes are those activities that take time, resources, or occupy space but do not add the value of the product. Waste leads to adding costs, but not adding value. Kaizen identifies six categories of waste: 1) Over production 2) Inventories 3) Defective product, scrap, repair, rework, 4) Time wasted in process. 5) Unnecessary motion and movements. 6) Wastages during processing and transportation.
