About

Anirudh has 10 years of experience executing projects and leading cross-functional teams to solve intricate business problems in quality assurance, pricing optimization, process management, digital transformation, and project management.

Most recently, Anirudh implemented a custom-built pricing solution to enable data-driven decision making and replace the inflexible flat-rate pricing prevalent at Larsen & Toubro – Nuclear. The solution was designed to integrate with the existing PLM system and enabled capture of costs across the operations spectrum, leading to significantly higher accuracy in margin capture. He developed workflows for automation and tracking of various data inputs that translated into significantly shorter turnarounds in deal management and customer enquiries. The benefits directly contributed to higher order-capture rates.

Anirudh also designed and implemented a custom, highly-flexible, ERP solution to cater to the made-to-order product range of L&T -Nuclear. With the phased transition to digital systems, eliminating paper, and capturing real-time data for all operations, effective optimization was realized in operations, project planning, and quality assurance.

Anirudh also has several years of experience in product development, as a quality assurance auditor, and part of indirect procurement.
