In his book” Indian Production System” in guru C .Narasimhan develop system that understands the constraints in the infrastructure and cultural issues we as a country face and tools to succeed in this environment.
Shri . C .Narasimhan, former president of Sundaram Clayton, who chairs the CII Cluster Programme, probably came closest to the truth when he bluntly and insightfully lists out why, despite steady progress of over 50 years, India is in not a position to excel in manufacturing. Among his arguments he suggests that our tendency to adapt British, European and Japanese systems may not be entirely suitable for India (“Such adopted systems do offer improvements but not excellence,” he writes). He offers in their stead the vision of an Indian Production System, which is interesting but there are no examples to suggest how this theory works in practice.
This book is aimed at business owners and senior managers to give them a flavour of the Indian Production System, how it can be applied in their companies to become world class.
