Growing with MPC into A New Era of Success

Growing with MPC into A New Era of Success

In March 1995, Tan Sri Ismail Adam was appointed as the Director General of MPC, after about two and half years since he joined MPC. He was then tasked to rebrand MPC and take the agency to a new level of recognition and excellence. During the preceding two and a half years, the development of research activities was enhanced. Besides upgrading the traditional programmes and activities of MPC, productivity research was given priority, resulting in the enhancement of skill sets and output delivered to the Government, specifically MITI and the Economic Planning Unit (EPU), as inputs for policy formulation and planning. Tan Sri Ismail Adam’s new position also required him to develop strong networking skills, while engaging stakeholders and intended beneficiaries in both the public and private sectors. This was imperative for him to take MPC to new heights. Network connections would also help him enhance the capacity, capability and skill sets of the workforce, the human capital that, at the end of the day, would have to deliver the output. Internally, Tan Sri Ismail has strong support from the stakeholders, the Board of Directors and MITI, which facilitated MPC to move into new directions.

Small Improvements Go A Long Way

The PPKV project from the collaboration between MPC and MEDAC is a successful initiative that exposed AISB to the need for continuous improvement to increase production efficiency. It is a catalyst for mobilising AISB to try to develop applications internally by optimising the use of existing resources. This given challenge succeeded in improving the skills of our engineers who were previously only focused on production. Through this newly developed system, the output can be optimised as a result of effective monitoring. PPKV has also successfully inculcated a culture of innovation and creativity among employees in the production line. Now, employees have understood the methods to determine the issues in inefficiency in the work process, and to generate ideas to resolve the issues to meet the demands of AISB customers. The elimination of wastage in the work process has also been successfully implemented and this initiative will be continued to increase the capacity of our plant in the future.

Thriving in a Competitive Environment

As a vendor in the telecommunications industry, the aim of this company has always been to provide quality fiber optic installation and maintenance services to our anchor company clients. This is a key strategy in growing our business as a result of the trust that our anchor clients provide. Our involvement in the PPKV programme has exposed all our employees to the need to improve work efficiency, which in turn can eliminate waste and bring much improvement in service quality. Close guidance from MPC is one of the main factors in the success of this business enhancement project, as well as the support by MEDAC as the project’s key funder. In addition, the initiative to develop our own system using own funds has greatly helped the company in increasing productivity in various aspects of the business. We will continue to make sustained improvements because we believe that this effort can increase the company’s sales, which have already been felt since the implementation of PPKV.
