"Being a large and complex manufacturing facility, TVS is a great opportunity for supply chain/operations aficionados. At TVS, class-learned operations concepts come to life. The support received by the TVS staff was such that we were allowed to walk the facilities freely, gathering information needed to analyze problems and provide recommendations that the company would implement. Lastly, Bangalore is a vibrant city, with lots of fun offerings."
