In our series of discussion on Prerequisites for Indian Production System (IPS), previously we referred about “Basic & Advanced 5S” and “How to create a right culture for total employee involvement?”
There is a sequel of blocks which helps us to move forward from basic 5S to advance IPS 5s. The reason for the flow is, we should not jump to Advanced 5s without the implementation of basic 5s.
Mr. C. Narasimhan figuratively represents the prerequisites for IPS in his book “Made in India for Make in India: Indian Production System”

Importantly, the expenses incurred by companies in providing these ‘Must be facilities’ should be considered as investments and not costs. While speaking about “Employee Bonding activities”, Mr. C. Narasimhan annotate many involvement programs which can establish a good connection with employees. Importantly, he shares an ideal methodology which is well suited for Indian culture.
