Authors: Paridhi Saxena, Abhishek Seth, Gangesh Chawla, Ranganath M Singari



Abstract: The health insurance industry protects against financial losses resulting from various health conditions. Since long, it has relied on statistics and data to calculate risks and thereby, centre attention more profoundly to a particular target audience for increasing the operational efficiency of the industry. Technologies like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence prove to be an efficient tool for enabling insurance companies predict the Customer Lifetime Value (CLV). This can be done using customer lifestyle behaviour data allowing to assess the customer's potential profitability for insurance companies. This creates a more personalised marketing offer within the audience. The insurance industry and its components constitute a dynamic and competitive sector representing approximately 2.7 percent of the US Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As customers have become progressively scrupulous about narrowing down their specific requirements, insurers and insurance companies are scrutinizing techniques for improving business operations and consumer satisfaction. An attempt in the regard has been made to analyse the “sample insurance claim prediction dataset" using various machine learning models including Decision tree, Random Forest algorithms, Naïve Bayes, K-nearest neighbour algorithm, Supper Vector machines and Neural Networks. A comparative analysis is performed to generate reports.

Title:   Design optimization and FEM Analysis of a Floating Caliper for BAJA ATV Vehicles



Authors:  ShubhamUpadhyaya *, Divyam Raj, Sourav Kumar Nanda, Kaushal Gupta, Tushar Gautam, Rakesh Chander Saini, Ramakant Rana



Abstract: High performance automotive brake systems are subjected to high breaking loads during short time intervals. The pressure between the pad and the brake disc generates a net force able to deform elastically the caliper compromising braking performance. Thus, a brake caliper is a critical component for the vehicle safety, requiring acceptable deflections and stresses under all loading conditions. The aim of this project is to investigate if it is possible to make the caliper lighter without interfere with the performance. This would be easy if no consideration to the cost where taken, but to do this without affect the manufacturing cost is a much more interesting challenge, since the market for cheap calipers is much larger. The objective is also to investigate how to build models to evaluate a caliper with FEA.

Title:  Handle Design of Woodworking Tools: Preferences and Recommendations of Craftsmen and Design Students



AuthorsDhananjay Singh Bisht, Mohammed Rajik Khan



Abstract: Giving 23 popular woodworking tool handle designs were collected to develop a reference visual catalogue. Survey data was collected from 19 male craftsmen (11 carvers, 8 carpenters) regarding their most frequently used tools along with recommendations on handle designs suitable for these tools. Opinions were also collected regarding the most “liked” and “disliked” handle designs on the catalogue. Subjective preferences and recommendations of handle designs for the most frequently used tools were also collected from a group of 58 undergraduate students of Design (41 male, 17 female). Participant responses revealed that wood carvers most "liked” an ivory-colored, Japanese style, circular cross-section, regular-sized handle with a hooped top. Carpenters most "liked" a wenge-colored, rectangular-sectioned bulky handle with a hooped top. Male Design students most "liked" a golden-honey colored, London pattern handle with an octagonal central section and domed wooden top. Female Design students most "liked" a beech-colored, bulky pear shaped round handle with a hooped top. Overall, 12 different tools which included different sizes of u-gouges, v-parting tools, fishtail-chisels, firmer-chisels, mortise-chisels and an indenting tool were found to be the most frequently used implements by the craftsmen. On an aggregate for these 12 tools, an espresso-colored, bulky pear shaped round handle with a hooped top was found to be the most recommended handle and a bubinga-colored elongated pattern maker type handle was the least recommended handle. Results from this paper should help researchers and manufacturers gain qualitative insights into subjective preferences and biases that may exist for and against certain handle design features in the context of woodworking tool research and development.

Title:  Study of BS6 Technology and Indian Economy 



Authors:  Sahil Bansal, Rani MedhaShree, Himanshi Nimesh, Ranganath M Singari



Abstract:  The BS or Bharat Stage are emission standards bought in existence by the Government of India to keep a check on the emission of air pollutants from vehicles. These standards and the given norms were passed and instituted in 2000. With upgraded technology being implemented in generation of new fuels and upgraded Automobile technology, they limit and control the emission levels and content of pollutants such as carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Oxide, other hydrocarbons, also many particulate matter (PM) alongside  sulphur oxides from motor vehicles which are using internal combustion engine (IC) . When the norms or stage gets upgraded, the control levels on the emissions becomes much stricter. Thus BS VI is a two level upgraded version of BS IV. These norms  are inspired from norms instituted in Europe namely Euro 4 and Euro 6.. Along with the environmental aspect of the BS VI norms, there are bigger concerns in the economic influences of it. This paper will put light on the basic study of BS VI norm and the implementation of its, concluding with what were its effect on the Indian Industries and India economy.

    Title: A Critical Appraisal of the Import Demand Literature



Authors:  Khyati Kathuria*, Nand Kumar



Abstract: Increased Globalization has led to an increase in interdependence among countries at the world level. Substantial reduction in trade restrictions and the implementation of WTO rules contributed to a rise in exports and imports of most developing countries. But the study of imports in comparison to that of exports is considered more important for the fact that the production for exports requires imports in the first place. By explaining and reviewing the methodologies the study aims to identify the research gaps prevalent in the area and provide a direction for future research. It has been found that panel data techniques have not found that place in the literature as the time series techniques have so there is a need for application of the same.

Title:  Flexible Manufacturing System and its feasibility in context of Manufacturing Industries



Authors:  Biswojeet Kumar Gupta, Dimpy, Megha Chaisar, and Prof. A K Madan 



Abstract: Highly automated machine cell which is based on the principle of Group technology, comprising a group of processing work station for the production is refer as Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS), where different processes like material handling, storage system, operation, inspection etc., are interconnected by automatic control unit. The concept of FMS (system 24) was first introduced in the mid-1960s to form a system which can operate 16 hours a day without any human attendant. The reason behind selecting this area for research is that there are problems like more lead time, inefficient utilization of machine, more space requirement in machine shop and high inventory level in current manufacturing industry. All these problems can be solved by introducing automation in manufacturing system, which can be done through FMS. FMS provides better resources utilization, high quality control, low cost product, high rate of production, reduced direct labour requirement and high labour productivity. Operational issues related to FMS faced by industries are machine loading, scheduling and dispatching, part routing, tool management, and part grouping so there is much scope of future development of FMS if all these issues are resolved.
