Quality function deployment quality assurance:
Bread flour is high in gluten (wheat protein) and knead thoroughly content is necessary to develop the gluten so it can withstand a loaf of bread. The gluten is elastic and is stretched as the yeast grows and gas is emitted, making bread in the light texture.
Wheat flour or pastry is weaker because the flour does not contain gluten as much, therefore, bread made that needs less kneading bread made with bread flour. A mixture of the two flours requires a moderate amount of manipulation to properly develop the gluten. Excess dough kneading flour from any damage the baking quality of gluten bread and produce a poor texture and volume.
Bread can be made entirely of whole wheat flour or in combination with white flour. A mixture of white flour and whole wheat bread made lighter than wheat alone, but increases the nutritional value as the increased amount of whole wheat flour is used.
Because yeast is very small plants, which should be kept fresh and active. Yeast can be purchased in dry form or granulated or compressed cakes homegrown as "starter" or "liquid yeast."
The fat in the dough makes the bread offered and increasing its keeping qualities. Any high quality cooking fat is satisfactory.
yeast plants grow rapidly in the presence of a small amount of sugar, as is the food for growth. A golden brown crust will give using sugar.
The gluten becomes stronger by salt.
Topics VITA campaign currently being developed with the intention of being used for a long period of nine months, but it could be short-term or extended due to factors such as being ineffective or market conditions.
I have worked in VITA Pakistan Ltd as an internee for 7 weeks. It was my decision to do the internship in a company because my purpose is to learn something practically about what I am studying in my university to learn about the implementation of the all methods and theories that I learnt during my course. Although other companies and banks also offer the facility of internship for MBA students but I decided to work in VITA for its reputation and its friendly environment. Although an internee is not a permanent employee of the company but can get a lot of knowledge and skills in this very short period and so did I.
I took it as an opportunity for me and my career and tried to acquire as many skills as I could. The management and other staff of my department have been very cooperative and guided me throughout my internship period.

What kind of duties are performed by which person and in what way, all this that I learnt during my period? My current decision was to do my MBA in Finance so I did my work mostly in finance but with this I also learnt about others'.
Usually the period of internship is short but we can learn a lot from this period. This was first time in my life when I was doing some reasonable and practical tasks. Lot of learning and achievements I have gotten from the finance staff like:
First thing I learnt from this short period of job is punctuality. I learnt from this how to be in time in the company.
The second thing is dressing, professional dressing matters a lot. By seeing my seniors and colleagues I start to copy them in dressing.
It was a big achievement for me, that I learn how to do the work in team and group of people. Working in the team should be learnt..

Same like these I did the job in the finance department and following are some of the skills needed and acquired:

When someone perform starts some kind of a new work, he faces many problems because he is not familiar with the new environment. He takes some time to adopt that new environment.
When I went to the company for my internship, it was my first experience in the company. I faced a few problems one of which was that I was very much confused in the first day. But with the passage of time I got familiar with that environment. I also did not know about the working of the environment of a company. It was also a problem for me to understand everyone working there.
But Mr. Zain helped me a lot to get familiar with that environment. He was there every time to help me.
At the end my report, first of all I would like to thank ALLAH ALMIGHTY Who gave me strength to complete my required task, and then my colleagues who helped me during my internship.
