    An electric company makes electric ovens. The product of the company is popular. But from the last two years the profit of the company going down. It is due the high purchasing cost of the raw materials. Mr Kamlesh who is in the purchase department is unable to reduce the cost. He talks with the venders - but all his effort to bring down the cost of raw material is fail. He is fingering on the production.He didn't attended the last three meetings. He is even thinks to resign the company.As a boss convince him to solve the problem.

    Not attending the meetings is not going to provide any solutions to your problems,
    If you want to solve any problem, you must never move out of the institution to try to do it. Stay there and keep working really hard.
    Keep the high quality standards in mind always
    Advertise your product
    find ways to modify the system so that it consumes less electricity.........You know it better, anyways
    you can resign from the job if you have other sources to support your family
