The main short-term advantage after completing the training was an idea of the industrial environment, the strict and disciplined schedule of the company. This helped me a lot to build inside me the zeal to learn more, to be highly precise and accurate in my working. It helped in understanding the relationship that should be maintained between an officer and a worker, officer and a trainee and also between worker and trainee. The good and learning environment helped a lot to understand the difficulties or problems faced during the project completion.
The short term learning objective were to just to see how things works and how communication is possible Long term The introduction to an official as well as industrial environment would help a lot in future to work in a company concerning to the field of communication, to cope up with the increasing competition in the market also it would help in building up a good relationship between myself and the colleagues. This industrial training has helped me a lot to stand in the corporate world. METHODOLOGY
In training at Indian Railways emphasis was given on the latest technologies and the basic fundamentals of communication which are required to cope up with the diverted needs of communication and study about the present day services provided by Indian Railways. We were given thorough instructions and knowledge about almost all the aspects of Networking. The officers also made us familiar with the various equipments being used. SCOPE OF TRAINING After achieving the proper goal of life an Engineer has enter in professional life. According to this life he has to serve an industry, may be public or private sector or self-own.
For the efficient work in the field he must be well aware of practical knowledge as well as theoretical knowledge. Since we belong to the electronics field it is really helpful to take training at a place that clears the doubts and inquisitively regarding the looking-simple phenomenon. The training at Indian Railways is related to many fields of engineering; it is one of the fastest growing industry in the world. Training at Indian Railways not only improves your subject theoretical knowledge but also improve the practical skill.
I worked there on study project named “Local Area Networks”. It was a great learning experience there. The Calcutta Metro is a fine example of highly complex engineering techniques being adopted to lay an underground railway in the densely built-up areas of Calcutta city. It is a treat to be seen. The Calcuttans keep it so clean and tidy that not a paper is thrown around! It only proves the belief that a man grows worthy of his superior possessions. Calcutta is also the only city where the Metro Railway started operating from September 27, 1995 over a length of 16. 45 km.
There is also a Circular Railway from Dum Dum to Princep Ghats covering 13. 50 km to provide commuter trains. GENESIS OF INDIAN RAILWAYS The story of the Indian Railways (IR) is not just a saga of mundane statistics and miles of rolling stock. It is the glorious tale of a pioneering institution that has blazed a trail for nearly a century and a half, making inroads into far-flung territory and providing a means of communication. Indian Railway is one of India’s most effective networks that keep together the social, economical, political and cultural fabric of the country intact.
Be it cold, mountainous terrain or the long stretches through the Rajasthan desert, Indian Railways cover the vast expanse of the country from north to south, east to west and all in between. More than a hundred years ago, on the 16 April 1853, a red-letter day appeared in the glorious history of the Indian Railways. On the day, the very first railway train in India ran over a stretch of 21 miles from Bombay to Thane. This pioneer railway train consisting of 14 railway carriages carrying about 400 guests, steamed off at 3:30 pm amidst the loud applause of a vast multitude and to the salute of 21 guns.
It reached Thane at about 4. 45 pm. The guests returned to Bombay at 7 pm on the next day, that is, April 17. On April 18, 1853, Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy, Second Baronet, reserved the whole train and traveled from Bombay to Thane and back along with some members of his family and friends. This was the humble beginning of the modern Indian Railway system known today for its extraordinary integration of high administrative efficiency, technical skill, commercial enterprise and resourcefulness. Today the Indian Railway (IR) is one of the most specialized industries of the world.
INTRODUCTION On the job training or OJT is one method by which students is given a chance to apply the theories and computations that they have learned from the school. It also helps the students to acquire relevant knowledge and skills by performing in actual work setting. Colleges and universities require their students to undergo such training within a specific number of hours as part of the curriculum. For the students, an OJT or internship program provides opportunities to go through the actual methodologies of a specific job using the real tools, equipments and documents.
In effect, the workplace becomes a development venue for a student trainee to learn more about his chosen field and practice what he has learn from academy. On the other hand, an effective OJT program also benefits the companies who accept trainees. First OJT or intern provides additional manpower for a lesser labor cost than a regular employee. Most of them are all eager to learn the ropes so chances are high that they will cooperate. Employers can use this internship strategy as a method in recruiting new employees.
Since the trainer or the supervisor can follow the trainees’ progress, he can gauge based on performance, behavior and attitude if the trainee will make a good recruit after the completion of his internship. Challenges Challenge is test of one’s abilities or resources in a demanding. And challenges are always present. During the trainee’s on-the-job training, he met some challenges that push him to work much better. First is when one of his co-workers challenged him to be greedy in learning new things and skills. That is also the time when the trainee’s supervisor said than if the later want high grade, he must work like a real employee.
That was a big challenge for the trainee. He was only a trainee, so the supervisor must supervise him and not to let him handle a situation than he didn’t know. And because of that, the trainee learned to put a dedication to his work. Another challenge that the trainee met was the climate during his working hours on the field. The heat coming from the sun makes him uncomfortable. And there is a time, halfway of his training, when he got sick. Lastly, one challenge that the trainee met is when his co-worker asked him to remove a bolt from a crankcase of a 4-cylinder engine.
The trainee thought it was easy. But then, he was wrong. He asked other to hold the crankcase as he 25 twisted the bolt using a socket wrench. Still, the bolt doesn’t pull out. He twisted it again using extension and pulled it as he can. At last, bolt was removed but the trainees hands were aching. He forced himself to twist the bolt because he said to his co-worker that he can do it without even knowing that the bolt was placed to the crankcase using an air lock and has a torque of 200 Newton twisted the bolt using a socket wrench.
Still, the bolt doesn’t pull out. He twisted it again using extension and pulled it as he can. At last, bolt was removed but the trainees hands were aching. He forced himself to twist the bolt because he said to his co-worker that he can do it without even knowing that the bolt was placed to the crankcase using an air lock and has a torque of 200 Newton. Problems Met and Solutions Offered Problems that the trainee encountered during his training were all related to the engine and pump failures.
Lack of materials to be needed must be resolved using alternative one. Like gaskets. In making gaskets, special paper called paper gasket was being needed. But as an alternate to paper gasket, paper folder can be used. It was fastened to the joints by means of gasket maker, a glue-like liquid. Competencies Gained The training inside the company is learning experience each day. The trainee learned to appreciate the lessons studied in school. He was able to realize the importance of theories and formulas that was discussed inside the classroom.
And also to understand that everything that was thought inside the school can be a tool that can be used in future career. As the trainee was working as a trainee at Keppel, he learned to become a hard-working person. Time to complete the output product is not important, but the quality. He also learned to follow the instructions as what the superiors said and to accept opinion that they suggested. At the school, being late is better than absent. But as what the trainee learned at Keppel, being absent is better than being late.
Being absent can be a cause of emergency situations like sickness, unpredicted travels and phenomena, while, being late is a cause of misbehavior and unable to manage the time. Lastly, the trainee learned that on-the-job training is not just only a subject to be passed or a requirement to be completed but on-the-job training is an opportunity to show what skills, talents and techniques that the student learned from the school and also an opportunity to experience the life outside the campus; serving companies like a professional on the field of the students’ specialization.
Projects/Output 28 At the end of the trainee’s OJT, he was able to repair different types of engine and able to help in solving different kinds of engine troubles. He was also able to handle pumps for reconditioning and assembling. For him, all the equipments that were used inside the company were his output project
