Overview

The operations club of LIBA, also fondly known as the Ops Club, provides an open platform for students, faculties and subject matter experts to interact. The club strives to bridge the gap between classroom and corporate world. It is here that students can have hands-on experience working on various case studies, both virtual and real time, to apply the concepts learnt in classrooms. It does not stop with case studies alone. Ops Club also hosts a number of events such as – quizzes, guest lectures, newsletter, simulations, and industrial visits to enhance student’s interest. This helps the club to evolve at the same time.

At LIBA, we have eminent faculty members, well qualified and experienced in various fields of Operations Management, to introduce students to the concepts of the subject.  We also have a centre for excellence in Supply Chain management, which further encourages students’ passion for logistics, and supply chain management. The current members of Ops Club are from diverse sectors that come with their own bag of experiences. This aspect of the club helps in cracking cases from various aspects.

Industrial Visit

“Knowledge is like paint. It does no good until it is applied.” -Doe Zantamata

To learn and experience applications of the operational concepts learnt in class, the Ops Club, LIBA organised an Industrial Visit. The destination was Sundaram Fasteners Ltd. Sundaram Fasteners is a subsidiary of the Lucas TVS group and focuses on the manufacturing of fasteners. Its main raw material is steel which it sources globally and distributes to a wide customer base inclusive of players in the automotive, rail, aviation industry.

Through the visit, the students were enlightened with the sourcing procedure, supply chain, lead time, inventory management, warehouse management, customer relationship management etc. The students also realised various challenges faced by the company and how they overcome them. One such example is the need of high quality Steel-Hot Die Steel, used in the manufacturing of fasteners. Since the fasteners are critical part, Sundaram emphasises on the quality of its raw material. However, there are only a few suppliers of HDS steel. So sundaram Fasteners strategically supplies its vendors with its technological expertise. Over a period of 50 years, they have developed a bevy of suppliers both domestic and global.After a visit of the shop floor and armed with the knowledge of the industry, the students were better equipped to relate to concepts learnt in class.

EXECUTIVE LEARNING PROGRAMMES

Opera Bit is another event held by the Ops Club during LIBA’s flagship event – Chrysalis. Opera Bit is tailored to incorporate innovative competitions every year. Opera Bit 2015 was a management event focused on testing the mind works of future operations managers, lasting one full day.
