PAMA recorded itself as an award-winner of two Three Stars Awards (the highest award) in the International Convention on Quality Control Circle event (ICQCC) held in Malaysia on 14-17 October 2012. In the event which was attended by 13 countries in Asia, PAMA sent two of its representatives, namely the SHORT3 QCC team from District INDO and the QCP SEMPURNA team from District ADRO. Both teams were able to convincingly present their innovations in front of the juries of the host, Malaysia, in such a way that the juries were satisfied and therefore gave top honors to both teams.
ICQCC 2012 is the Quality Innovation competition in the international level, followed by Japan, South Korea, China, Sri Lanka, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Philippine, Singapore, Indonesia and the host, Malaysia. The event is coordinated by JUSE (Japan Union Scientist & Engineer), a professional organization in Japan that initiated the beginning of the Quality Control Circle activities (QCC) in the scope of work.
With this recent achievement, PAMA showed that it has successfully maintained the gold tradition of always receiving the highest award in this event ever since its participation in 2010. Earlier in the implementation of ICQCC in the year of 2011 in Yokohama - Japan and 2010 in Hyderabad - India, PAMA was awarded with the Excellence Award.
The QCC SHORT3 team of District INDO presented its improvemens entitled "Increasing “Fifth Wheel” Lifetime to Optimize Repair and Maintenance Cost", while the QCP SEMPURNA team from District ADRO presented its innovation, entitled "Solid Mud Pumping Method to Decrease Operational Cost". Both innovations have went through rigorous selections through competitive internal conventions conducted by the district itself or PAMA Group to win the same event in the national convention.
