Key Result Area In Manomav Engineers

KRA or Key Result Areas comprehensively define the job description of the employee and are used when assigning the task that he or she is expected to perform with a positive impact.

They are a broad range of responsibilities that the employee has to solely concentrate on throughout the year by aligning their role with that of the organization.

KRAs are mainly set to measure the performance of the employees in a well-defined, quantifiable and easy to measure form and can also be used as an appraisal tool as this data is based on their overall performance.

This allows employees to stick to their path and helps them stay focused. As it provides clarity to individuals, it enables them to focus on other things at the personal front too.

To promote the work-life balance of its employees, Manomav introduced this approach on February 1st this year, as the company understands the importance of quality work and providing time away from work for rest for overall productivity.

Building Scalability in Operations with Project Management Office

We have been serving various geographical areas including Delhi, Gurugram, Pune, Ahmedabad, Sikar, Lucknow and other parts of the country. With this kind of diversification Manomav has planned to operationalize the management of projects by establishing a Project Management Office (PMO). Members of PMO are highly energetic and keen to play vital role in new generation of Project Management.

Manomav has implemented the strategy of managing the projects using the strategy of controlling them using Projects, Program and Portfolio Management. Currently, PMO will be actively engaged in Building Portfolio of Manomav, where the below two leading programs will shape the organization:

  1. Implementation of MicroPMC to bring Scalability in monitoring of building projects below 15 Crore.
  2. Institutionalize the Project Management Practices with PMO Support for building projects above 15 Crore

Abhinav Bhardwaj, Director – Growth, shared that the recent introduction of weekly executive call has developed accountability of key team members and focuses on KRA improvements. He believes, that now with Manomav 2.0 the establishment of strong PMO with integrated support will improve the quality of monitoring.

Hospital Project Planning with Vision 2030

Manomav is providing end to end construction solutions to its customers. Global level changes in terms of latest innovation and technology are changing Hospital Designs. Manomav representatives are sharing new ways of designing hospital considering future with Entrepreneurs of Hospital Industry.

Future Vision of Hospital in Urban Cities & Tier 2, 3 Cities

From the amount of advancements the world has observed in last decade, it is evident that year 2030 will be very different from 2019. In 2030, India will face new challenges in terms of expansion of already existing hospitals and construction of new hospitals with re-designed infrastructure and technology. Currently, the care provided at the hospitals is divided into three categories a) Primary, b) Secondary and c) Tertiary Care. Speciality Hospitals can only work when they are supported with the right Infrastructure as discussed by Dr. Gaurav J. Kumar, Facility Director, Medanta – The Medicity. The demand of Tier -2 & Tier -3 cities are focused towards introduction of new facilities since the traditional treatment already exists through family references as informed by Dr. Shuchin Bajaj, Founder Director, Cygnus Hospitals.

Designs of Hospitals

Girish Bommakanti, CEO, Gleneagles Global Hospitals had shared interesting futuristic concepts in Urban Landscape of having smooth connectivity from Smart Homes to Smart Hospitals.

He shared that hospital design should consider movement of patients right from the parking lots to discharge areas while planning to have services like MRI & Ct Scan on the same floor. Future is changing soon so the current hospitals should be designed by categring to at least 5 years of future functionality in mind. Dr. Sanjeev Bagai, Chairman – Nephron Clinics, has suggested common considerations to be made while positioning hospital components like –

  • Lift should be closer for Joint Pain or Orthopaedics
  • OPD should be in Isolation to Other building blocks
  • Psychiatrist in OPD should not be closer to Gynaecologies.
  • Ward beds should have beautiful visuals
  • Blood Banks can be closer to the laboratories
  • NICU & BICU should be separate, Rest ICUs can be combined

Army Hospital are also designed with flexibility of its locations which includes various concerns like –

  • Sizes are defined in multiple of 7 along with Toilets which serve different cadres
  • Operations Theatre are preferred on Top Floor Location
  • AHU should also be placed on Top which results in lesser heat loss
  • Orthopaedics and OPD should not be on Top Floor

Budget of Hospitals

30% of Hospital construction budget goes into Equipment Buying and if you exclude construction, it makes 60%-70% of Hospital Budget. Dr. Bharat Gadhvi, Regional Director – HCG Hospitals said that equipments have less Shelf Life and Lower Staff like Radiologies, Pathologist and Oncologist should be engaged when equipment purchase decisions are being discussed. In case owners are short of budget they should leave space for future activities, so make sure that services are available for 7-10 years. It is suggested to consider 7 year cyclic cost of equipment which includes buying cost, AMC cost and third party services. Delivery of Equipment shall be done very carefully because Half Life of Helium decreases in 68 days so PO shall be given with clear terms & conditions.

Approvals of Hospitals

One of the most critical activities in construction of hospital is dealing with approvals. NABH and JSI are two of most accreditionals standards in India. NABH has its own requirements on top of the Building Approvals. There are more than 104 Laws which govern hospital construction today. Various laws are applied  which are dependent upon the services of hospital including Building Approvals, Support Services License, Laboratory approval from NABL, Air/Water/Environment Laws with Biomedical Waste (Trace & Track it from start to end), Atomic Energy/Radiologistic from ACPVP Regulations, Shop Act, Food Facility License, Clinical Establishment Acts, GACI Standards in 14 standards which are applicable from NABH.

In case of hospital expansion and renovation generally, it does not require approval for modification. However if modification is changing usage pattern of building or floor, approval is required from competent authority.

In case of External Building Change, approval is required from competent authorities.

Safe & High Quality of Environment in Hospitals

Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) is implementing BMW (Bio Medical Waste Rules in Hospitals) which are revised in 2016, 2018 and in 2019. Effluent Treatment Plants are playing vital role in hospitals due to the nature of waste. HVAC Systems are coming with Ashrae Standards. Even the standards are being revised. Recently in 2016 National Disaster Guidelines have recommended to avoid usage of Flat Slabs in Buildings. Though Guidelines are not mandatory but is required because of two reasons:

  1. Fire Rating Issue which needs extra flooring which increases its thickness and affects building usage.
  1. Earthquake can cause bigger collapse if not designed properly.

With these key considerations Manomav shall be able to provide you a futuristic solution for hospital designing which aligns with your vision while considering Budget, Best Interiors, Approvals and Smooth Management of Hospital Buildings Execution.

Automatically suggesting you to act is New Intelligent Follow Up System

Technology is integrating with Humans for bringing their best and Manomav is leading this change in Construction Industry. Manomav is evolving its operational process by building Manomav 2.0 for its Customers, Employees and other Stakeholders. Manomav 2.0 is a combination of strengthening Site Monitoring Teams with a) strong office support and b) Self Intelligent Tools based on Cloud Data.

 

We are using an Intelligent layer of Follow Up System which considers various possible scenarios of activity and suggest actions to the users. The best part of Intelligent Follow up system is its change in output based on current date. Intelligent Follow up System is playing significant roles in various processes implementation of Manomav 2.0 including tracking of Drawings, Site issues, Procurement Related Activities, and Payment. It will strengthen end level supervisors to become self-sufficient without follow up.

 

The logic of Intelligent Follow up system increases the value of data in spreadsheets by transforming it as a gentle reminder system. It prompts you with an alarm, in case of any incomplete or delayed task and asks you to log a reason behind the delay and incompletions as well. It helps in building the history of completion of tasks and can be useful for analysing the behavior or response of people in the future.

 

In Current Scenario, it helps in increasing the accountability and management of any assigned task. While it increases the efficiency of an employee. It reduces the other operational risks and decreases the uncertainty of any process, which in turn is beneficial for clients too. It also reduces the undue workload of the project manager to an extent.

 

The Intelligent Follow up System interacts and follows on various tasks by itself, making Manomavians 2.0 self-sufficient, self-reliant and more alert.
