SigmaEta, the Operations Club of IIM Tiruchirappalli, is committed to maximizing the knowledge of every student of the IIM-T community in the area of Operations and provide challenges that help hone the skills of those specializing in this field. SigmaEta strives to bridge the gap between the industry and academia by providing the management students community an opportunity to showcase their talent in national level competitions and article writing exercises. In January 2016, we created another milestone by becoming the highest rated functional club during the Annual Club Ratings Poll.
OpsWise 4.0 - Case Study Competition
OpsWise is a national level case study competition which tests the participant’s depth in diverse concepts of Operations & Supply Chain Management in the annual business management fest of IIM Trichy (Arcturus). This year we saw immense participation of students from various B-School for this prestigious competition. This event is aimed at making crucial decisions related to process improvement & inventory management in real businesses. The competition was divided into two stages wherein the first stage tested the participants in an Operations and Supply Chain quiz. The shortlisted candidates were then required to solve a case in the second round. A fierce battle was fought and finally team Dual Core of IISC Bangalore were declared as the winner and team Seven Sigma of IIMTrichy as the runners by our honorable judges Dr. M. Punniyamoorthy, Professor at Department of Management Studies, NIT Trichy and Dr. Godwin Tennyson, Professor at IIM Trichy.
SigmaEta facilitates the broadening of the horizon of the students through Industry interaction & taking up projects with clearly defined goals. In the preceding year, SigmaEta had arranged for Guest Lectures by Mr. T.A.B. Barathi, Vice-President (SCM), Wheels India and Mr. Ramaswamy, Manager Business Development at Flipkart. While Mr. Barathi gave great insights to the students on Supply Chain and procurement for the second year students, Mr. Ramaswamy talked at length about the exciting new world of E-Commerce and advised the first year students in shaping their career.
