Manufacturing of Sukhoi-30 MKI by HAL

The Hin­dus­tan Aero­nau­tics Lim­it­ed (HAL) has start­ed man­u­fac­tur­ing of Sukhoi-30 MKI fight­ers in the coun­try. The Inter-Gov­ern­men­tal Agree­ment (IGA) was con­clud­ed on 4th Octo­ber 2000, between the Gov­ern­ments of Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion and Repub­lic of India for trans­fer of License and Tech­ni­cal Doc­u­men­ta­tion to India, for pro­duc­tion of 140 SU-30 MKI Air­craft, its Engines and Aggre­gates. The Cab­i­net Com­mit­tee on Secu­ri­ty (CCS) accord­ed its approval for the Project on 18/12/2000 and the Gov­ern­ment sanc­tion was issued in Jan­u­ary 2001. As per the sanc­tion, the pro­duc­tion capac­i­ty envis­aged was 12 air­craft per Year.

The gov­ern­ment has asked the HAL to speed up their man­u­fac­tur­ing of Su-30 MKI fight­ers. As per the CCS sanc­tion dat­ed 18/12/2000, the project was to com­mence from the year 2004-05 and be com­plet­ed by 2017–18. How­ev­er, in June 2005, Air Head­quar­ters request­ed HAL, to explore the fea­si­bil­i­ty of com­press­ing the deliv­ery pro­gramme by three years. Accord­ing­ly, HAL sub­mit­ted a Pro­pos­al which envis­aged com­pressed deliv­ery of 140 air­craft with­in 2014–15. CCS accord­ed its approval for the com­pressed deliv­ery pro­gramme on 31/03/2006. As per the revised sanc­tion, the Pro­duc­tion capac­i­ty envis­aged Was 16 air­craft per Year. 

Sub­se­quent to CCS Sanc­tions, con­tracts were con­clud­ed with IAF for sup­ply of 140 8U-30 MIG air­craft by 2014–15. Fur­ther con­tract for sup­ply of addi­tion­al 40 SU-30 MKI air­craft was con­clud­ed with IAF for com­ple­tion with­in 2014–15, along with ear­li­er order of 140 air­craft. Out of the total 180 air­craft, 99 air­craft have been deliv­ered till 2010-11. 

The steps tak­en by HAL for time­ly man­u­fac­tur­ing of such fight­ers include: 

• Com­mis­sion­ing of addi­tion­al tool­ing jigs & fix­tures in man­u­fac­tur­ing and assem­bly Shops. 

• Increased Outsourcing. 

• Devel­op­ment of alter­nate vendors. 

• Improve­ments in man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es & Oper­a­tions in order to reduce cycle time. 

• Effec­tive mon­i­tor­ing and time­ly actions through Enter­prise Resource Plan­ning (ERP).

• Recruitment/Redeployment of man­pow­er in crit­i­cal work Centers.
