CFC

BRIEF ON COMMON FACILITY CENTRE PROJECT OF GJEPC

BACKGROUND:

India is the hub for Diamond Manufacturing and also pioneer in jewellery manufacturing.The manufacturing activities of diamond and jewellery are widely spread throughout the nation.

The manufacturing units are established and operated even in the interior villages / small towns. Small & medium manufacturing units located in small towns and interior villages of are still operating with the old technology, as cost to upgrade/acquire /install a state-of-art technology/equipment is not affordable to them.

This has resulted into low productivity and also affecting the quality of the finished goods produced.Further, there also exist a need to organize skill up gradation training for the artisans involved in manufacturing activities of G & J sector to make them aware about the operation & benefit of the latest technology. 

THE CONCEPT - COMMON FACILITY CENTRE

Keeping above issues in mind, establishment of CFC was conceptualized. Establishment of CFC in small towns and villages would greatly help to transfer the technological advancement benefit to the needy  small manufacturers.

CFC would also provide an opportunity to re-skill / up-skill the existing workforce of G & J sector with state-of- art-equipment widely used to manufacture G & J products globally.

Outcome of this initiative would be obtained in terms of increasing productivity and improving the quality of the finished goods with better yield.

NEED OF CFC :

The diamond or jewellery industry at PAN India operating at different level and facing different level of threats or opportunity in terms of demand of product, availability of skilled worker and raw material, competition with other regions or country etc..However, the challenges being faced by them are common in nature and need support to sustain and grow in competitive world market.

The primary hindrance to accelerate the desired growth of industry at these locations is the non-availability of the cost intensive state-of-art-equipment and exposure of the same to small & medium level manufacturing units.

As most of units in the proposed locations are operating on smaller scale and mainly engaged in job work activities.  It is difficult for them to invest cost intensive equipment or machinery at their own and even if they install it, it won't be effectively utilizedin terms of its optimum capacity due to small volume of the work they deal with. Non- availability of the state-of-the-art –equipment resulted into lower productivity, less yield & inferior quality of the finished diamonds.  Further, sometimes it becomes difficult for them to meet the time line and deliver the finished product in time due high-level dependency on the artisans and availability of skilled labour as per requirement in remote areas is a major issue.

In many clusters, it is also observed that due to seasonal agricultural activities, unit holders face the problems to retain the existing work force continuously in diamond cutting and polishing and at the same time, when interviewed, they said that new entrants to the industry are not turning up. So, to retain the workforce consistently & continuously is the biggest challenge for them as on the day.

There are certain activities required to be done to complete the mfg.process but due to non-availability of the required technology, small unit holders have to send the goods at Surat / Mumbai as the case may be for specific process and then need to perform other part of the work to complete the process and manufacture the finished product which is not only time consuming but also attract additional cost to the product.

BENEFIT TO THE CLUSTER:

The setting up of CFCs at proposed cluster is need of an hour to improve the quality of the product and increase the yield.  Further, considering the current scenario of the industry, if such facility made available to the small unit holders at reasonable rate, units may offer their job service to the big manufacturers at cheaper rate and easy to attract more work in their region from the city.

Technology & social transformation:

  1. Centres will provide access to common pool of high end &capital-intensive state-of-art machinery/equipment which are otherwise prohibitive for individual small & medium manufacturers.
  1. Centre facilities will be made available at a reasonable rate which will improve upon the quality, productivity and yield of the finished products.
  1. Centres will be a support infrastructure for SMEs to meet their delivery schedule/commitment on time by providing more productive machines in their nearby vicinity.
  1. CFCs will be served as a platform for technology transfer & Re-Skilling of the existing artisans by providing them training on various aspect pertaining to mfg. of G & J products & also organizing seminars.
  1. The state-of-art machineries and infrastructure facility will not only be used for technology transfer but also help in social transformation mainly for unorganized sector in villages & towns.

Export enhancement :

Access & services being offered by CFC would be resulted into improving upon output in terms of productivity and quality & yield obtained by small & medium manufacturer. With the setting up of Common Facility Centre the local artisans and manufacturing unit holders more particularly the SMEs of that area will be benefitted.

Technology & social transformation, better production quality and yield, timely delivery, training and skill up-gradation of the artisans of G & J sector more specifically from unorganised sector in villages and towns willhelp in enhancing the export of the sector.

COMMON FACILITY CENTRE

India is the hub for Diamond Manufacturing. The diamond manufacturing activities are widely spread throughout the Gujarat state. Diamond manufacturing units are established and operated even in the interior villages / small towns of Gujarat. Small & medium diamond manufacturing units located in small towns and interior villages of Gujarat are still operating with the old technology, as cost to upgrade/acquire /install a state-of-the-art technology/equipment is not affordable to them. This has resulted into low productivity and also affecting the quality of the finished goods produced. Further, there also exist a need to organize skill up gradation training for the artisans involved in diamond manufacturing activities to make them aware about the operation & benefit of the state-of-the-art equipment.

Keeping above issues in mind, establishment of CFC was conceptualized. Establishment of CFC in small towns and villages would greatly help to transfer the technological advancement benefit to the needy diamond manufacturer.

This would also provide an opportunity to re-skill them on the state-of-art equipment widely used by the diamond manufacturers globally.

Outcome of this initiative would be obtained in terms of increasing productivity and improving the quality of the finished goods with better yield.
