MetadataShow full item record
British American Tobacco is one of the most renowned multinational business firms in the world of Tobacco industry as well in the market of Bangladesh. After starting operations in Bangladesh, over few decades BAT has been relentlessly bringing new, innovative and world-class products to satisfy the customer of each market segments. At the very beginning I have given an outline of the tobacco industry of Bangladesh, my objective of preparing this report. I have showed the BAT history through a timeline. From the beginning to till now, the important events regarding BATB are shown in the report. I have also presented the whole outline of the factory with the machines and equipment details. I have thoroughly explained about Autonomous maintenance with its steps and importance. Autonomous maintenance (AM) is performed by the operators and not by dedicated maintenance technicians. It is a crucial component of the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). The core idea of autonomous maintenance is to provide the operators with more responsibility and allow them to carry out preventive maintenance tasks. Autonomous Maintenance is the daily act of keeping the equipment operationally healthy. The tasks and practices required to maintain equipment health requires highly skilled individuals utilizing standard work processes. The seven steps of Autonomous Maintenance serially build this skill over time. I have also discussed my work experiences at BATB and some challenges of this project. I have tried to put my learnings and experiences in words at BATB.
