Re-Roof sheeting with Trimdek
This was running plant with 200 vehicles being rolled out per day. The existing asbestos sheeting of the plant urgently required replacement within the stipulated block closure planned during Diwali vacation (10th– 17th Nov’2015). This required accurate planning of supplies, especially the flashings (which has limited output & requirement, known only after taking up dismantling work) and proper installation resources. Customer also conveyed that no sheeting work (including dismantling) would be allowed in Press Shop & Body Shop, while the plant was operational, due to the risk involved. Especially concerned about damage caused due to small particles falling from the roof, adversely affecting the quality of finishing work.
This implied that 56,000 SQ MT of combined dismantling and sheeting required to be completed within 8 days, which translated to min. 7,000 sq. mt. output on daily basis with provision for lost time in compliance of entry formalities for workmen i.e. training, medical check-up, compliance of statutory labor law requirements etc. The manpower availability during Diwali was also a constraint, as most of the workers are unavailable as they plan visits to their native places. As per the safety requirement, the roof activity could only be carried out during day time under natural light and limited the daily working hours.
Top management of Force Motors approached MD, Tata BlueScope Steel for the re-roofing work and sought Tata BlueScope Steel’s commitment to meet their requirement. Because of past association and hope for future business opportunity, Tata BlueScope Steel offered its products & services with commitment to meet their targets.
