Date and Duration: 15th, September 2022, (1 day) Time: 11:00 am to 01:30 pm
No. of participants: 90
Resource person and affiliation: Mr. Koshal Jain & Mr. Jitendra Chaprod, Asst Manager in Mandsaur-Neemuch Zone, Wonder Cement & Mr. Arvind Jain, Technical officer in Mandsaur Zone, Wonder Cement and Mr. Aashish Nalwaya, JE in Rural Engineering Services, Panchayat & Rural Development Dept, M.P.
Purpose of Workshop:
The purpose of the workshop was to make students familiar with the revolution of next generation manufacturing as all industries are becoming technology industries and it makes sense that cement manufacturing would be no exception to this trend and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the complete cement manufacturing process. To give the participants a more in-depth knowledge of a cement plant’s components and enhance their skills towards setting goals for their career because the career opportunities as a cement technocrat is excellent in India, as the growth of the Indian cement industry is in full swing to achieve its new targets. Every year many cement technocrats are required in India besides the demand in abroad plants.
Department of Civil Engineering and Wonder Cement Ltd jointly organized a one day seminar on “Advances in Cement Manufacturing with Artificial Intelligence” dated 15th september 2022. The seminar was sponsored by Wonder Cement Ltd, on the occasion of the Engineers day, the birth anniversary of Sir Mokshagundam Vishveshwaraya. Experts of the seminar rendered their expertise to all modules of cement manufacturing process with application of AI with effective use of subjective knowledge. They explored the critical elements of the various challenges faced by different cement plants. The Seminar covers the process, operation, and cement production of all the different departments in the cement industry, starting with the quarry and the crushing department and finishing with the packing area. It aims to equip the participants with knowledge in enhancing productivity through process diagnostic studies, process optimization, and troubleshooting for the complete cement plant. After the seminar tree plantation was also done on the ground to commemorate the event.
Outcome / Key Deliverables: After completing this seminar students will be able to:
- Enhanced their technical and practical knowledge by understanding the onsite field problems.
- Understand the theoretical underpinnings of cement manufacturing technology.
- Develop new techniques for the optimisation of cement manufacturing plants.
- Improve management and efficiency of the cement production works.
- Familiar with the revolution of next generation manufacturing.
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the complete cement manufacturing process.
- Setting goals for their career opportunities as a cement technocrat in the Indian cement industry.
Thus this seminar will go a long way in improving the learning outcomes of the burgeoning civil engineering graduates of Mandsaur University.
