Machine Design, Energy Auditing, Waste Minimisation techniques
Techniques Chandra Shekar Uses:
Field studies, Process Data Analysis, Measurements and Creative Problem Solving techniques. I design Questionnaires to collect Data from Clients, Analyse them and suggest tests and experiments to be conducted. From the experiments and trials I optimise solutions and recommend implementation of new methods leading to solutions and savings
Chandra Shekar's Problem Solving Skills:
efficiency improvement, cost reduction, design improvement, energy conservation
Chandra Shekar's Problem Solving Experience:
I have designed and built low cost and efficient farm waste shredding machines for speeding up composting. Also several other low cost machines for wire straightening, paper recycling, steel melting and heat treatment. I specialise in concept design and prototype making. When manufacturers show interest to build, I do the detailing .
I have saved 25% to 30% energy consumption in industrial units leading to substantial cost savings. Low cost investment in conservation gadgets have given attractive paybacks by means of cost savings in energy bills such as lower electricity and fuel consumption.
Besides energy conservation I have also achieved Process Waste Minimisation. I conduct Methods Improvement studies and suggest Improvements and modifications to operations and activities using Creative Problem solving techniques and SCAMPER methodology.
