Factory Visit 2016 – Dept. of Finance
The students of the Department of Finance made a visit to one of the manufacturing plants of Rocell Lanka PLC at Eheliyagoda on 16th October 2016. During the visit, the management of the company provided the students an opportunity to obtain hands-on experience relating to the operations handled in a tile manufacturing plant. Further the staff members of the factory explained the key stages of the tile production process paying special attention to the risk management measures and quality assurance measures used in the process. It was really a commendable effort from the staff of the factory given that it was a Sunday. They also told the students that a financial manager has a role to know about the whole system of the organization to perform and facilitate his/her role as the financial manager. This was a novel experience for majority of the students as that was the first time ever that they had visited a tile manufacturing plant.
