LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDYCompany name It was not possible to make an exhaustive study on working capital management of BHEL in a limited duration. The data for 2010-11 has not been included in this report as the audit for the year has not been completed (at the time of preparation of this report). It was not possible to reveal some of the financial data owing to the policies and procedures laid down by BHEL.
CONCLUSIONSCompany name Only secondary data collected from BHEL Varanasi is used for the study, hence the accuracy of the findings will depend upon the accuracy of the given data. The limitations of the methods used in the study will also reflect in the outcome of the study. The Company is keeping a strict eye on cash management now-a- days. The Working Capital is also showing an increasing trend which is attributed to the increasing level of operations.
SUGGESTIONSCompany name Outstanding orders of recent past years are in increasing mode these orders should be minimize as far as possible. Automatic storage and retrieval system (ASRS) should be implemented in stores of BHEL. Periodic review on non moving and slow moving items of inventory should be done. All suppliers need to be educated on the requirement of various documents so that delay in processing of bills and payment may be reduced/avoided. Storage capacity should be made more reliable.
