This thesis work demonstrates the findingsinference from the data collected on the constructed questionnaire as discussed in the report and discuss the desired objective of the research study in an analytic way, with the proper application of the statistical and analysis tools. The analysis of the data collected was performed using PASW STATISTICS 18 software.
The internal consistency was measured of the questionnaire. Croanbach’s alpha is a measure of internal consistency, that is, how closely related a set of items are as a group.

Maintenance and quality record keeping is reported by 29.09% to reasonable extent and by 49.09% to great extent. Similarly, broader job perspectives and employee empowerment is reported to a reasonable extent by 47.27% and to a great extent by 29.09%.
