They produce 3500 tonnes of polyester synthetic fibre per day. The production cost 7.25 per unit. This production is wholly mechanized and less of man power is used. Though usage of mechanism is more, the operator is appointed to have a constant check on the working of machines. Management plays a vital rule in production process. The filament produced goes under various process such as heating, steaming, boiling. For this the natural resources used were minimum (i.e. fuel). The temperature under which melting is done is about 500-518o F (260-270oC). They are then formed in long ribbons, they are allowed to cool until they become brittle. The waste materials are also recycled and reused. The water is also purified before darning it out. From this we come to known that production is lead with a thought of maximum utilization of available resources.

MBA Aviation Students Visit The Pune Airport

   The full time, four semester, two year MBA program was introduced in the academic year 2014. Under the guidance of the Director Dr. R Gopal, the program was incubated by Captain Shashikant Koppikar. He is a veteran of the aviation industry with a total experience of over 45 years. The program has been designed, keeping in mind employability across a wide spectrum of segments within the aviation industry, such as the Airlines, Airports, Airfreight, Corporate aviation and Airport planning.  The accent is on finance, economics and management aspects specific to aviation.

Industry insiders and independent consultants alike are unanimous about the growth prospects of Indian aviation. Already the 9th largest in the world, it is expected to grow five times the present size by 2030, to become the 3rd largest. It is but natural that such explosive growth will require specialist aviation managers in large numbers.  The recent policy pronouncements by the central and state governments are a clear pointer in the direction of growth. At present there is a dearth of institutions in India, providing specialist higher education in the field of aviation management. Dr. D. Y. Patil School of Management’s MBA program aims at filling up this gap to provide aspiring aviation managers a career opportunity, which at once will be both rewarding and satisfying.

The session was conducted on the significance and the role of negotiations in one’s personal as well as professional life. The criticality of negotiation was very well expressed through the session. The negotiation style plays an important role in corporates. The guest highlighted Not to offer anything exceptionally high as it would again create a problem among the existing employees. Ensuring one is little tactful and flash one’s trillion dollar smile. Do not indulge in annoying the other party. Negotiation is also important when one is dealing with vendors. An organization needs money to survive, managers have to take responsibility of the employees as well. The organisation can’t afford to spend money as it is. A single penny saved will help the managers and the organization later. The persons dealing with the external parties must be a good negotiator else one will end up paying more amount than required. Conflict must be avoided at the work place as it only leads to negativity all around. Negotiations help to reduce conflicts at the work place. Conflicts arise when individuals are too rigid and are just not willing to compromise with each other. Negotiations help in finding an alternative which benefits all.
Students  were enriched with the essential skills for negotiation, Power point presentation as well as different videos were played during  to make the session interactive. Several parameters responsible for effective negotiation were made interesting by different classroom activities. Hereinafter session was closed by a question and answer which elucidated qualms of students.

DYPUSM Donates 81 Bottles of Blood

On 30th September 2015, DYPUSM in association with the DYP Hospital conducted a blood donation camp. The camp began at around 9.30 a.m. and lasted till around 3.00 p.m. The camp was held at the DYPUSM campus. Prof. Dr. R.Gopal led the blood donation camp by being the first to donate blood. A large number of students both from the Undergraduate program (BBA students above 18 were only permitted to give blood), MBA both the first and second year students participated.  A large number of students enthusiastically volunteered to give blood but many of these students had to go back without donating as they were diagnosed to be anemic and most of these students were girl students. Said Dr. R. Gopal “It is a pity that though DYPUSM is gender positive with almost more than 45% girl students, these girls were not able to donate blood”. In spite of this, around 81 bottles were collected and donated. Personally speaking Dr. Gopal said that he has been donating blood regularly for the last 15 years.
A strategy meeting was called immediately after the camp and it was decided to conduct a series of “Well Being” seminars exclusively for the girl students. The process of shortlisting doctors, dieticians etc. for this purpose will be started in a few days. Prof. Dr. R. Gopal lamented that this problem is primarily because many girl students in their quest to look young and beautiful have developed this habit of eating ‘junk food’ and avoiding good nutritious food. Many of these students have gone overboard with over exercising and eating junk food he said.  
Ms. Prachi Nair, Head of the Blood Donation Camp said that DYPUSM was one of her major donors of blood. She said “students of DYPUSM have been donating blood almost every 6 months for the last so many years. They have made it a habit of donating blood. On an average DYPUSM has always given around 80 to 100 bottles”
Ms. Prachi Nair, mentioned that today the number of patients in the wards, causalities in the DYP hospital have increased manifold and there is an acute shortage of blood. Mr. Neel Choubal expressed awe at the number of students who have volunteered to donate blood so enthusiastically. He said “We had to reject many undergraduate students almost 90% of these students as they were below the age of 18 and for many this was a first time experience, the first blood donation camp they were participating”. Ms. Jyoti Marathe expressed satisfaction and said that it is time there should be a depository of donors with different blood groups. The ISR team would be collecting a detailed list of probable donors and their blood groups. This would help in quickly getting donors when in need.
At the ground level, the camp was organized by the students led by Mr. Ashish Thomas, Student Cultural Secretary.
Finally, Prof. Dr. R. Gopal and the ISR team and all others thanked the staff of DYP Hospital, the administrative staff and all others for making this camp a grand success.
