Encouraged by the above, Ramalingam is coming out with his second book which will also speak on the relevance to ‘Make-in-India’. Having written the primary requirement of a better ‘Design For Manufacturability ‘in his first book, the second book is under process which will guide entrepreneurs and industrialists to obtain more insight into ‘Engineer Manufacturability’.
