Book Description :

While there is pressure (from buyers), inclination (within self to do better) and a heightened aspiration among apparel manufacturers to use Industrial Engineering (IE) like other more industrialized sectors, there is no specific book as such dealing with IE in relation to apparel manufacturing. The existing books that are already written on IE possess academic rigour and generic functions applicable across industries, thus making it difficult for the practitioners to refer and clear discrete doubts related to apparel manufacturing. Undoubtedly, work study is the centrepiece of Industrial Engineering; however apart from work study, industrial engineers in apparel industry are also supposed to perform various other functions like preparing operation breakdown and operation flow chart, selecting machine type and attachment and workaids, planning machine layout for maximizing unidirectional material movement, optimising inventory and storage space and maintaining workplace health and safety. These are some of the areas that often lack significant attention. This practitioner’s handbook is an amalgamation of theory and practices, including steps of implementation and common mistakes. A balanced approached is taken to make it equally meaningful and useful for the academics as well as the industry. A unique section titled “industry practices” is incorporated at the end of each chapter which shares the typical practices, constraints and benefits accrued by the industry, which will give meaningful insight to the readers and help them relate theory with actual practice.

Book Description :

Garment manufacturing companies now a day's facing global competition. Garment manufacturers generally work on the principle of economies of scale. Here, the large fixed costs of production are depreciation-intensive because of huge capital investments made in high volume operations. So, garment industry needs some manufacturing management philosophies like lean manufacturing. The purpose of this work is to investigate the use of lean manufacturing and value stream mapping in the garment industry of Jaipur. In the first stage of study a questionnaire survey was used to explore adoption of lean manufacturing, lean manufacturing tools and techniques used, driving forces and barriers in lean implementation. In the second stage of study a value stream mapping was used to study current state and after studying it a future state map was created to eliminate waste. For elimination of waste takt time was calculated and the cycle time was maintained around the takt time. For value stream mapping the data was collected by means of stop watch time study. The survey results show that many of companies in the apparel industry are not working with lean manufacturing.

Book Description :

Productivity improvement means doing the same thing in a better and smarter way and continuing to work on improving the techniques for an individual or a team on the shopfloor. And this continuous improvement is the only way to achieve high profitability. Garment manufacturing involves number of operations carried out by different operators and all the activities starting from cutting, sewing till finishing are different from each other in terms of the way they are performed and the technology being used for them. So, it is always advisable to look at the working of four aspects and that are material, machine, men and method. However there are ways to build higher productive efficiencies which result in reduction in cost and bring in higher profit margin.. The book discusses different case studies from the shopfloor showing productivity improvements.

Book Description :

Retaining customers in any industry is one of the biggest challenges today, and more so in the fashion industry, where competition is very high and customer loyalty very fickle, which has to be earned not just by the look of the garment but also through quality. Therefore, it is imperative that apparel brands world over follow strict quality guidelines right from product designing to quality of inputs to sewing and packaging the product. This critical journey even involves managing the quality of the machines on which the product is made to the way the after-sales services are carried out. Effectively managing quality of all the above materials and processes is a major challenge, mainly for the reason that the complete cycle requires human intervention and humans make mistakes. This book is an honest endeavour to comprehensively cover implementation of all the possible tools, techniques and methodologies which encompass the concept of ‘quality’ for the apparel industry such as quality control, quality assurance and total quality management system. All the concepts have been fortified by case studies on the implementation process with detailed discussion and final outcome. These would not only enable the industry to move forth on the path of consistent improvement but would also support it to remain in sync with the rapidly evolving technological world of today.

Master's Thesis from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: In this thesis different apparel industries are overseen using interviews, secondary data and observations, a survey is also conducted to gather general information and effectiveness of lean and its tools. For the survival in the present race of industries it is very important to upgrade and calibrate the technology. Lean manufacturing concept is applied to Pakistan’s Textile trade. The determination of conducting this study is to check that how much lean is effective; it is a multidimensional approach only the major dimensions are discussed in this research like reducing waste and improving productivity in garment production. I Two lean tools are also implemented. Resultantly the data gathered concludes that lean approach is highly efficient, but still a long way to go on the road of lean. The conducted survey shows that there is a good awareness regarding the lean approach, management knows that lean manufacturing is very helpful but there are unable in implementation, there is a less implementation knowledge and training staff in the companies. Only two lean tools are implemented in this thesis and more tools can be implemented in the future.

Book Description :

Without Lean leaders, there can be no Lean. If an organization wants to be Lean, its leaders must lead using Lean principles. Put another way, until the top of your organization fully embraces Lean, the rest of your organization will never be Lean. The Lean Leader: A Personal Journey of Transformation uses a compelling novel format to tackle the nuts and bolts of leading a Lean transformation. Readers follow along as the characters face real crises and what seem to be unreasonable deadlines. As the story progresses, readers will see how the main character, Don, and his colleagues transform from being "command and control" autocrats—those who make decisions and bark orders—to more Socratic coaches and mentors. As Don and his staff come to realize that the folks they employ are the real experts in the processes they control, you will learn why it behooves you to do more asking than telling. You will come to realize that a leader’s greatest skill must be in coaching great performance from their people. You will also witness the difference between managing and leading. After reading this book, you will understand why it’s so important to shed the decision-making tasks that have cluttered your days, and how to delegate those decisions to employees who are closer to the action. You will learn how important it is to look over the horizon to identify upcoming challenges, define and communicate new courses of action, and compel others to follow. Most importantly, you will learn exactly what it takes to lead a Lean organization that thrives socially, as well as financially.

If time is money, then being lean is both. Thanks to mega retailers worldwide, lean principles have rapidly spread to a variety of different manufacturers, such as consumer foods, apparel and food/beverage. Over the past few years, these retailers have dramatically changed how they do business in order to stay competitive in the marketplace. How products are ordered, how inventory is moved throughout distribution centers and barcodes vs. RFID technology for inventory management have all been taken into consideration in order to work as swiftly and efficiently as possible. While lean thinking has been rapidly expanding amongst large manufacturers and retailers, there are still a lot of companies that have hardly implemented any lean concepts. At the end of the day lean is about adding value for customers; but how can companies do that while also reaping in benefits for themselves?
