As we all are aware that entire world is facing financial crisis and we cannot escape our self from this wave as employee particular and KEL in general. We have attempted to draw the attention of all of us where we can proactively put cost cutting so that the impact of recession can be marginally avoided.

The areas where we can put cost cutting.

    • Control on usage of Electricity- Make habit to switch off AC and computer once you leave your seat.
    • Control on Wasting of food-Canteen
    • Usage of water
    • Usage of mobiles phones as well as landline facility
    • Conveyance-Traveling (Use shuttle in stead of hiring special auto where it is possible
    • Transportation – by reducing the frequency of tempo and loading rickshaw
    • Saving in raw material cost by size, by type by grade
    • Reduction in frequency of visits at suppliers/vendors end (For QC and purchase team)
    • Reduction in sub contacting of the parts and effective utilization of internal resources
Please give your inputs.

Dear Mr. Dev
last three intervention u thinked for cost cutting i am not agreed from them because ur making some compromise with quality. While all other options are acceptable for this u have to display banners and slogans at ur place which introbuces some change in behaviour of ppl working.
Thanks
Dear BADLOOSER, Is there anything left in your brain? what an ideal suggestion!!!!! I think u r the one who is badly stricken by the world economic crisis so far. Get well soon....
Dear Mahendra
Let me share the thoughts of One of the Director's of my earlier company. He says cost cutting does not mean that cutting down the salaries of Office boys / admin assistants and doing silly things
He says Cost cutting initiative should start from the top level reducing the no. of air travels, encouraging Video Conferences, Allowances like providing Cars to Director's and their maintenance and other activities which incur much expenditure
The initiatives you have given would help the cause in a manner, but look at the costs at top level
Invite thoughts from other members too

I agree with Mr Kumar as i also feel that if one air travel is avoided one office boy can be paid for a month.Simillarly regular maintainence of machineries will reduce cost of replacement of parts.
cost cutting can be done by several methods.As i am in a broking house:-
1- use one monitor only by RM's ,like 1 P>C for 4 people tto update the portfolio.
2 - Switch off the system when not in use.
3 - divide the zone and one people for one zone so that conveyance is saved.
4- Keep the branches on chat to reduce the STD call.
5- Use both side of paper to reduce stationary cost.

Hi Dev
What Mr.Vinod Bidwaik told is absolutely right,Just the above things won't solve your problem, Try to convey the sign boards for some days and later on just put an 1/2 an hour or 1 hour extra work every day. So that you can give your all the above things and raise the production.
If not, cut short, the out sourced jobs and distribute the same job on 2 to 3 three associates so that in this manner also you can reduce the cost.
Hope so it may help you.

Dear Mr.Mahendrabhani,
The major cost reduction in an organization comes "when things are done right first time, every time". The consequences of not doing so, costs an organization dearly.This is the "Cost Of Poor Quality ("COPQ").
Pl see attachment.
Besides the areas which are covered in this thread, you must seriously consider reducing COPQ.
I have introduced this system in a few organizations and their savings are considerable.
