MIS Report
A two-tier multi functional MIS Report, tailor-made for the Kochi Unit had been implemented since 1993. It consists of computer generated Exception Report and Control Reports'
Pre-defined exception boundaries are applied to sieve out critical information from the data drawn from all the departments. Parameters like specific raw material consumption, Manpower productivity, Marketing productivity, Energy Index, Downtime, Delay in office processes, safety and quality standards etc. are being monitored. y-o-y/m-o-m comparisons are made, depending on the nature of the parameters. Certain parameters are subjected to season-wise comparison also
The follow up activity on the control report is conducted at unit level and that on the exception report by the corporate office; the feedback is conveyed to the respective departments, to complete the information cycle.
MIS report is made available on HOCL intranet portal through BI tool. The MIS facilitates effective monitoring and continual improvement in the performance of the unit.
