First of all, I would like to convey my sincere good wishes to everyone associated with AIRIA and simultaneously
thank you very much for the kind support extended to me from time to time. I would like to congratulate Western
Region for hosting the 1
National Rubber Conference of 4
edition in 2015 series (Mumbai-Chennai-Delhi-
Kolkata) which is being organized at The Westin Mumbai Garden City, Goregaon, Mumbai on 19
June 2015. An E-Souvenir is also being published on this occasion.
As you all are aware of the hike in import duty on natural rubber from 20% to 25% by Govt of India, we at AIRIA
have strongly protested the this move in view of its adverse effect on over 5500 Rubber MSMEs in the country.
We being an old and responsible Association, always wanted the growth of both plantation and industrial sectors
that is why we urged the Government to come out with a National Rubber Policy. In all fairness. Govt needed to
wait for the National Rubber Policy and take a concerted decision on a major issue such as increasing import
Import Duty on Natural Rubber was already high as 20 %,( as compared to other nations) while the import duty
on finished rubber goods is 10% or even lower up to Zero. So the rubber manufacturing sector continues to be at
the receiving end of an Inverted duty structure, though Rubber manufacturing sector contributes close to 40%
of its produce for exports. With the increase in the import duty, the cost of manufacturing goods for export will
increase. Other hand Export obligation period that has been shrunk by the Government from 18 months to 6
months becomes hurdle for SSI units to import the NR against Advance Authorization/DFIA. Despite of the step
taken by the Government, domestic rubber prices have been ruling much higher than international prices. Hence
imports can’t be blamed for drop in domestic prices. As per my opinion, we must go in to deep reviewing that
why Natural Rubber price is high in our country than other countries. Also Purchase taxes (5%), heavy freight
charges from Kerala, India to other State and from Sea Port to Dry Port and the cess of Rs 2 per kg on rubber
are also the factors contributing to the high price. Safe Guard Duty on Carbon Black and Anti-Dumping Duty on
Rubber Chemicals also a big issue being faced by the Rubber Industries of the country. We have also requested
to Government for formation of separate Export Promotion Council (RUBEXIL) for Rubber Sector to increase
the export performance so as to earn more foreign exchange for the country.
Governments should review the all MSME policies once again so as to give maximum output for the small
manufacturers to give strength to mission of “Make in India”. India already levies one of the highest duties on
import of Natural Rubber and one of the lowest duties on import of finished rubber goods. As a result the
competitiveness of the Indian rubber industry is affected and many rubber units have already closed down.
Despite of the all, we still need to keep the finger cross with hope and strength for accepting the challenges to
come and succeed to “create In India to make in India”.
I would once again thank the Chairman, Western Region and his team for this wonderful edition of National
Rubber Conference and warm hospitality.
“There is no development, physically or intellectually without effort and effort means work”
As I look ahead, I can visualize that the conference will grow in pursuit of higher standards of technology, and
give shape to our dreams.
The theme chosen for the conference “Path to Future – Stride with NRC” is of contemporary interest. The
productivity of human beings depends on the stimulation levels maintained in their line of business. The
stimulation in turn depends on efficiency of technology management, effective use of raw materials, innovation
and understanding of the market requirement.
AIRIA is duty-bound to engage themselves in these activities along with other areas of interest such as economic
scenario, government policies, business environment (ease of doing business) and so on….
I am sure that the conference will enable the delegates, academicians, Practitioners, Consultants, Research
Scholars, Industry leaders, and other experts to exchange ideas and suggest measures for meeting the evolving
challenges. The exchange will surely benefit the rubber fraternity.
While congratulating the organizers in their endeavor, I wish to compliment them for their novel initiative in
achieving higher standards of quality for providing a platform for this interaction through this Conference.
I open heartedly welcome all the delegates to this conference and have faith that this will be a professionally
I wish the Conference a great success.
Sr. Vice President, AIRIA
It is quite gladdening that the first of the 2015 series of National Rubber Conference (NRC) of All India Rubber

MAKE IN INDIA AND MADE IN INDIA for SME - CHALLENGES AND
Dr. Rabindra Mukhopadhyay, Director & CE-HASETRI
The world economy is recovering from an extended slow down, with all the key economic groups, including the
USA, Euro area and BRICKS, expected to stage higher growths over the next few years. India in turn has
recently witnessed the most emphatic election verdict in 3 decades, and is gearing up for growth. The overall
outlook is positive, with leaders across the industry expressing confidence in this economic revival. In keeping
with the theme of development, our Prime Minister has launched the “Make in India” campaign, targeted to
transform India into a manufacturing leader.
The world is fast changing, with a rebalancing of manufacturing weight across the developed and developing
economies. India in this competitive global environment is starting from a position that is far from advantageous.
India’s manufacturing sector with a 15% share of overall GDP, compares poorly with peers like Malaysia,
Thailand and Indonesia. India also suffers from some critical drawbacks like a lack of an enabling infrastructure,
poor perception of India in terms of ease of doing business, and a lack of proven ability to compete at a global
scale. At the same time India’s long term prospects remain intact, with its core strength of human resources, a
strong base of entrepreneurs, and a robust and growing domestic demand. In many ways, there, the stage is set
for India to transform its manufacturing and seek global leadership.
Make in India means manufacturing in India with proven technology, using cost competitive resources for
domestic as well as overseas market through technology transfer (TOT). Made in India is not just about
manufacturing the product in India on TOT basis but rather about encouraging and incentivizing the indigenous
companies to design & develop the product (creating IPR), manufacturing including after sales service &
branding and give them preference during the procurement process.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in India have seen exponential growth over the last decade. According to
the latest reports by the SMB Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises,
India currently has more than 48 million SMEs. These SMEs contribute more than 45% of India’s industrial
output, 40% of the country’s total exports and create 1.3 million jobs every year. Yet, these SMEs continue to
struggle on multiple accounts.
Indian SMEs today operate in a very challenging atmosphere. According to World Bank India has slipped 3 ranks
in its Ease of Doing Business Index. SMEs are said to be the backbone of India’s economy, however not much is
being done to promote their healthy growth and development. The biggest challenges of SME Sector in India
Dearth of easy finance and credit instruments
Limiting regulatory polices
Unavailability of modern, affordable technology
Lack of basic infrastructure facilities
Absence of exclusive marketing platforms and distribution networks
Inflexible labour laws and availability of affordable skilled labour
In this paper, the above challenges faced by the SME sector with reference to auto components will be
addressed to “MAKE IN INDIA” campaign a grand success

EXTRUSION AND SCREW DESIGN
.......What You Should Know
Extrusion has a varied field of application including rubber. So, when you come across a rubber profile, strip,
hose, cable, wire, cord coating, tire tread, v-belt, tube, or blank remember that they are only a few handful of
products manufactured using extrusion process.
The extrusion process has to be effective. What does this mean to you?
Your extruded profile temperature must be within required limits to prevent scorching. Your main goal of extrusion
is to get the highest output at good quality of product within the safe temperature limits of the products.
These three factors create an imaginary triangle with sides the same length. But under real conditions, the shape
of this triangle is more or less deformed and depends on factors such as rubber compound composition, material
properties, back pressure, temperature conditions inside the extruder, screw design and flow channel geometry.
Some kinds of rubber compounds are difficult to process by extrusion, due to their physical, mechanical and
rheological properties. In the tire industry, they are usually based on natural rubber (NR). With a higher content of
rubber, the elastic properties increase. This high elasticity causes high heat generation when compressed.
When you choose a rubber extruder, you should deliberate and discuss extensively upon few key things i.e the
design, material technology and manufacturing accuracy of screw, barrel and die-head. Very few manufacturers
world-wide can guarantee you well-designed and precisely manufactured rubber extruders.
The effect of increase of key screw design elements is as below:
Reputed manufacturers offer different screw designs to process your specific rubber compound requirements.
Based on the convenience and usage history, you need to know of the two types of rubber extruders’ viz. Hot
Feed Extruders (HFE) and Cold Feed Extruders (CFE).
Hot Feed Extruder (HFE)
Rubber industry only had Hot Feed Extruders until 1950’s. HFE’s extrude your rubber compounds at reduced
The screw depth of a HFE is relatively larger and you get a consistent output due to its short screw design. L/D
ratio is mostly in the range of 4:1 to 6:1 which keeps your rubber compound dwell time and its temperature
increase to a minimum.
Two screw designs are
a) Standard Screw that has 2-Flight Inlet Section, decreasing pitch for compression and constant core diameter.
b) Improved Screw with 1&1/2 flight screw, constant pitch and increased core diameter at outlet for compression
One study by HF Mixing Group, reveals a higher performance with their improved screw design on 10” screw as
below for tread compound.
Each HFE has a hopper and feed roller section with spiral undercut liner that allows your compound to enter the
extruder easily. The feed roller on a hot feed extruder allows your compound to pass the scraper knife, directed
around the roll and then fed back into the hopper. The feed roll bearings are placed in positions to prevent
contamination. You can vary the output by changing the screw speed using variable speed drives.
Despite these advantages, the HFE’s are getting outdated in many applications. Because the rubber that is fed
into a Hot Feed Extruder needs to be pre-heated or warmed using two-roll mills to achieve the required degree of
viscosity and temperature that facilitates smooth flow of rubber, its compaction and extrusion through the die.
And that makes Cold Feed Extruders relevant and desirable.
Cold Feed Extruder (CFE)
Cold Feed Extruders are designed and manufactured with specially designed screws best suited for cold feeding
of rubber. While manufacturers offer L/D ratio up to 24:1, the most preferred by end-users is generally in the
range 12:1 to 18:1.
You can discuss with your manufacturer and avail various options of screws for a wide range of compound and
extrusion applications. Few screw designs are
a) Standard Screw with 6-Flight Inlet Section, constant screw pitch and constant core diameter.
b) High-performance homogenization screw with 6-Flight Inlet Section, constant screw pitch (larger than
standard screw) and constant core diameter.
c) Screw with thickened core that has 6-Flight Inlet Section, constant screw pitch and constant core diameter
(larger than standard screw).
d) Compression screw with 2 flight inlet section, variable screw pitch, and increasing screw core diameter from
inlet to tip.
e) Compression screw with higher homogenization that has 6 flight inlet section, variable screw pitch, and
increasing screw core diameter from inlet to tip.
f) Decompression screw 6 flight inlet section, constant screw pitch, and decreasing screw core diameter from
inlet to tip.
A study by Konstrukta on a compound that had high NR content and low filler showed higher output from their
latest decompression screw designs as compared to others.
For feeding the cold rubber, it is recommended that you use a feeding conveyor with metal detector to remove
metal particles. This avoids damage to the screw or barrel. In some plants, I find the sensitivity of the metal
detector calibrated to a low value that it virtually renders the detector useless.
Every CFE comes with a Temperature Controller Unit (TCU) that controls the barrel temperature so that the
shape and size of the extruded products are uniform.
Variants in cold feed extruders along with their uses are
1. Plain Barrel Type Cold Feed Extruder – These CFE’s as the name suggests have a plan barrel and used in
manufacturing of hoses, blanks, fluorocarbon rubber, butyl rubber, etc.
2. Pin Barrel Type Cold Feed Extruder – These CFE’s have around 80-100 pins protruding out of the barrel
towards the screw center. These pins enhance the mixing and dispersion of your rubber as it is kneaded between
the barrel and screw. And the result is processed rubber with outstanding homogeneity and extrudate quality.
This flexibility in Pin Type Cold Feed Extruders endears to all making it a universal extruder for many rubber
compound formulations involving varied applications. Hard rubber compounds also can be processed because of
high extruder torque.
3. Vent Type Cold Feed Extruder – Vent type or vacuum type extruders were developed for production of non-
porous profiles and hoses. These CFE’s have a custom-built screw, and a degassing barrel with a vacuum pump
attached to vent bubbles out of extruded compounds.
Co-extrusion: Customer-specific customization and usage complexity demands led to the introduction of co-
extrusion for manufacturing of various profiles. And so you today have Simplex, Multiplex (Duplex, Triplex,
Quadruplex, and Quintuplex) and Roller Head technology. Multiplex lines of piggy-back type of 2,3,4, and 5
layers have a compact construction.
Roller Head Technology involves a combination of extruder with preform head and two-roll calender. They offer
twin advantages of – high uniformity of the material thickness over the entire sheet width with absence of air traps
even at higher thicknesses (~20mm thick as against conventional calender lines that give max 3mm thick sheets
with or without air traps) and excellent homogeneity of the material produced.
Both these characteristics are important for high-quality rubber products such as tire components, V-belts,
conveyor belts, tank linings, cover sheets, blank sheets and roofing sheets, etc. For even thickness across the
entire sheet width of the roller head, there are three options that can be used alone or in combination with one
another – roll crowning, roll crossing or roll bending, which will compensate for the elastic deflection of rolls.
Rubber extrusion is in itself a vast subject, and when you know the above basics, you have made a

Ms. Eleonora Doehl, Deutsche Oelfabrik of Germany
Selected Accelerators for EPDM and other Diene Rubbers
Ethylene Propylene diene rubber [EPDM] is a terpolymer with side-chain double bonds. The main chain thus
remains saturated. The advantage of the EPDM’s largely saturated molecular structure, e.g. high resistance to
weathering and ageing are accompanied by a relatively inert vulcanization behavior.
An economically viable cross-linking of EPDM with sulphur can often only be achieved though complex systems
with numerous individual components consisting of vulcanisation accelerators and sulphur donors. If the
components are not optimally balanced, staining or blooming effects can appear.
For over four decades, DOG Deutsche Oelfabrik has been producing accelerator blends that enable balanced
,safe and blooming–free EPDM cross-linking in industrial use, and has reached worldwide distribution. DOG’s
line of conventional and nitrosamine-safe acclerator blends for EPDM and other diene rubbers as well as the
advantages of the vulcanisation stabilizer Deostab will be the central topic of this presention.
THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMER … IS IT A THREAT OR AN
OPPORTUNITY FOR THE RUBBER INDUSTRY
Mr. Mirisch Damani, Chairman & Mg. Director, Zylog Plastalloys Pvt. Ltd
Thermoplastic elastomer, commonly known as tpe, has been commercialised globally over the past several
decades, successfully penetrating markets that have been main domain of the rubber industry. Tpe, also used
interchangeably as tpr, tpv, etc … is defined as a material that provides feel and performance of a rubber, yet
ease of processing and economics of a plastic. Unlike rubber, which is a thermoset material, tpe is a
thermoplastic material. This means it flows like plastic when processed at above melting temperature of plastic,
yet behave and perform like rubber at room temperature.
TPE when introduced in mid 80s in india, it was more of a concept. Today, tpe is widely consumed and
commercialised in many market segments and continues to grow much faster than rubber industry. Over the
years, tpe has replaced conventional thermoset rubber in many applications in consumer and industrial product
areas, due to its performance, colourability, and much faster production cycles leading to cost benefits. Today,
the compound technology has further widened performance envelope of tpe allowing it to be used in application
requiring high heat resistance, oil & grease resistance, self lubricating and several such other key domains of
Be it in automotive, wire and cable, medical and healthcare, electrical/electronics, appliances, construction,
consumer durables and disposables, etc … you will find tpe playing an important and significant role.
Million dollar question is TPE … an opportunity or a threat to the rubber industry..?
this paper will highlight and examine how plastic processors have taken advantage of this wonder material and
entered application/market arena that have been a primary domain to rubber processors. Rubber processor,
having invested in rubber processing machinery, always felt that tpe processing would require investment in
plastic machinery, and making their rubber machinery idle.
Either you safeguard your turf or loose out to competition. Call is yours. Opportunity is abundant otherwise large
threat is looming over your business. Tpe can no longer be ignored.
Innovation with Mipelon & Lubmer for Rubber Modification
Mr. Prafulla Shinde, Senior Manager – Marketing, Automotive & Industrial Materials Division,
Mitsui Chemicals India Pvt Ltd.
Mitsui Chemicals Inc. is leading global chemical company engaged into manufacturing of specialty Polyethylene
based materials. Mipelon is ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene in the form of fine powder developed by
Mitsui Chemicals. Mipelon supported for lot of value addition in performance of rubber goods with Abrasion
resistance and Impact properties modification. Indian Rubber Industries will be able to modify conventional
rubber for superior abrasion & chemical resistance with the help of Mipelon.
Modified Resins and Rubbers ( Compound)
The addition of MIPELON
to polyacetal, polyamide or phenol resin improves results in self-lubrication
properties. Adding MIPELON
to rubber not only improves self-lubrication, but also increases resistance to
chemicals. Mipelon decreases friction coefficient of base resin more efficiently than PTFE which is widely used as
an Abrasion Modifier.
LUBMER ( Glass Run Channel)
remarks the super abrasion resistance in GRC application. The high abrasion resistance of
enables to make “hard” sliding part thinner and contributes to manufacture Flexible GRC.
(UHMW-PE Film application)
film can provide lowest coefficient of friction as low as (0.15) same as Fluororesin. It can also
provide abrasion resistance six times higher than Fluororesin with higher impact strength & excellent chemical
resistance. No investment for equipment’s is required and also it contributes to the reduction of total production
costs. It also supports to achieve stable and uniform thickness
Recent Trends in Carbon Black Development
Dr. Abhijit Adhikary, GM – Technical Services & R&D, Phillips Carbon Black Limited
Rubber products depend heavily on carbon black as reinforcing filler to impart desirable properties to the
Elastomer matrix. These include improved toughness, failure properties and wear resistance. With the stringent
product performance requirements moving northward, the constituting subcomponent’s performance becomes
critical and requires specific set of technology and manufacturing set up to produce.
Carbon black manufacturers are now facing multi-dimensional challenges to stay competitive. In one hand,
Carbon Black manufacturing processes need to conform to stringent local environmental norms, be highly
efficient in resource utilization, and maintain uniform product quality, yet flexible on the inputs. On the other hand,
its product portfolio should be process and performance efficient to the user, maintaining the brand pull thereby
justifying the price. Huge fluctuation in Crude price, stringent regulatory norms internationally, ever increasing
demand on product performance and limited talent pool magnify complexities.
Development activities at leading Carbon black manufacturers are aligning to the newer Material Processing,
Product Performance and Environmental requirements by developing value added customised grades, catering
to the present and future needs.
Specialty Plasticizers for High Performance Applications
Dr. Manasi Nath - Senior Technical Manager, Fine Organics
Plasticizers are broadly classified as general purpose, performance or specialty plasticizers. General purpose
plasticizers are those that offer overall general performance inexpensively. Performance plasticizers include fast
solvating material, low-temperature plasticizers, reduced migration, improved stress-strain behavior, flame
resistance and increased stabilization.
While phthalate esters are low cost plasticizer, they often do not provide the required performance. Specialty
plasticizers are often used in combination with phthalate esters to provide a balance of performance and cost.
Specialty plasticizers are also used as sole plasticizer depending upon the desired performance. Plasticizers are
selected based upon a cost/ performance evaluation. The rubber compounder must evaluate innovative
plasticizers, like FinaFlex-1200 for compatibility, process-ability, performance properties and permanence. The
study of these properties by the rubber compounder will contribute to the selection of the specialty plasticizer.
The paper will cover classification of plasticizer, selection criteria of plasticizers for various elastomers. The paper
will be discussing mainly on the plasticizers with its various physical and chemical properties, performance
properties of the compounded materials using the plasticizer. Performance properties are evaluated on the basis
of its thermal stability, flow characteristics, mechanical and extraction resistance properties in end-user
applications. The testimonials for low temp flexibility and high extractability will also be discussed.
Post Vulcanization Bonding Process for Rubber-to-Substrate
Mr. Subir Chaudhuri, Manager Technology, Lord India Pvt. Ltd.
Complex and large substrate geometries within rubber-to-substrate bonded assemblies are often difficult and
expensive to mold using the conventional vulcanization bonding process. Post vulcanization (PV) bonding is the
process of bonding cured elastomer to various substrates using a Chemlok® adhesive system or LORD™
structural adhesives. Post vulcanization bonding can significantly reduce the tooling costs and processing times
to allow for a robust bonded assembly solution. The scope of this paper is to highlight the key process differences
and advantages of PV bonding over traditional vulcanization bonding.
Introduction to Per Fluoro Elastomers, Characteristics and
Mr. Nitin Dilip Zade - Sales Manager, 3M India Limited
Perfluoro Elastomers are essential engineering material that come into play where other elastomers
prove insufficient in handling the harshest of chemical enviornments and / or extreme temperatures. These
materials have the highest level of chemical and thermal resistance of any elastomer currently available. Per
Fluorinated Elastomers (PFE) are employed more often in many industry applications as operating conditions
become increasingly intense. Additional reasons for use of PFE include reducing equipment downtime, handling
more stringent enviornment regulations (e.x, reduced emissions and leak prevention) and / or increasing lifetime
performance of the finished article, such as seal or progressive cavity pump. The intention of this paper is to
provide technical insight into PFE Polymers, their cross linking chemistry, capabilities for chemical and thermal
resistance and application considerations, along with detailed information on how to handle and work with PFE
Polymers. These materials are known to be very expensive, orders of magnitude more expensive than a typical
Fluoro Carbon Elastomer (FKM) or Hydro Carbon Elastomer, so proper handling and use are important.

PART TIME 1 YEAR DIPLOMA COURSES
Ionomers from LANXESS for Improved Dynamic
Mr. Mohammad Sadique L Patel - Senior Manager TS & D, Lanxess India Pvt Ltd.
A new butyl-based material – butyl ionomer - has been developed which contains a persistent ionic
charge attached to the butyl backbone. In addition to the properties of traditional butyl rubber (impermeability
and low temperature flexibility) the butyl ionomer displays many unique physical and dynamic properties including
excellent green strength, improved polymer-filler interaction as well as thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) behavior
owed to the formation of ionic aggregates. These ionic aggregates are thermally labile and the mobility of the
polymer is enhanced at increased temperatures.
Incorporation of the butyl ionomer in an EPDM compound has been shown to significantly reduce crack
growth. As crack growth is one of the key failures for dynamic applications in the such as EPDM based belts, the
addition of the butyl ionomer should improve the service lifetime as well reduce costly downtime.
Static Dissipative Nanocomposites of Alkaline Earth Metal doped
Aluminium Oxide and Methyl Vinyl Silicone Polymer
Dr. Aparna M Joshi, Research Director, K.D.Joshi Rubber Industries Pvt.Ltd.
Methyl vinyl silicone polymer - alkaline earth metal doped aluminium oxide composites are prepared by
conventional two roll open mill mixing method. Doped aluminium oxides (DAO) using silvery white coloured
alkaline earth metals such as Mg and Ca as dopants in the concentration of 0.4 % are synthesized by microwave
combustion method and the as synthesized materials are characterized for the electrical resistance, X–ray
diffraction, FE-SEM, transmission electron microscopy and FTIR. The electrical resistances of the DAOs are
observed to be ~ 8-20 MΩ. This means that the resistance of aluminium oxide (Corundum) a-Al2O3 which is ~
Ω is reduced by the order of ~ 10
Ω after doping. XRD studies reveal the doping of Mg and Ca in
aluminium oxide. The microstructural study using FE-SEM shows the flaky clusterous structures with the
thickness of the flakes between 10 and 20 nm. TEM images depict the rod shaped morphological geometry of the
particles with the diameter of ~50-70 nm. The nanocomposites are synthesized by incorporating the DAOs in the
concentration of 75 phr (parts per hundred parts of rubber) into VMQ polymer. The electrical resistance of VMQ
polymer, which is ~ 10
Ω, drops by the order of 10
Ω. There is retention of the electrical resistance of ~ 30-50
MΩ for the nanocomposites which is a static dissipative range of electricity. In this work white coloured
electrically conductive VMQ polymer-DAO nanocomposites have been synthesized. The physical and mechanical
properties of the composites such as specific gravity, hardness, tensile strength and rebound resilience are
measured. Hardness and tensile strength are found to increase, with the negligible alteration in the other

Mr. Naushad Shikalgar - CEO, J N Engineering
Asset management is a systematic process of deploying, operating, maintaining, upgrading, and disposing of
Maintenance is important in any organization. Without proper maintenance, assets deteriorate over time causing
a knock on effect on the quality of the output produced. It can also impact the safety of the asset or the people
that operate it.
Traditionally, maintenance has been viewed as a cost centre in an organization; it costs money to hire
maintenance technicians and purchase the spare parts to keep systems running smoothly. Too often, senior
executives ignore the added value maintenance can bring to an organization such as:
A reduction in reactive maintenance costs
Reducing costs to restart production after a breakdown
Limiting production scrap
Costs of downtime such as missed orders and lost revenue
Improved quality of products
Reduced environmental impact
Asset Management focuses in assuring the people, parts and processes are optimized to improve asset
performance. Reducing inventory, maintenance costs and the number of downtime events raises productivity,
while driving financial performance and predictability. It helps employees who need the right tools to make good
decisions about driving plant performance.
