EVENTS FLASH
Garment buyers are always on the lookout for economically viable sourcing destinations having abundant and cheap labour. Unlike Bangladesh, China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Sri Lanka – which are getting costlier due to increasing labour and infrastructure costs, Ethiopia – considered Horn of Africa with 90 million population – is emerging as one of the destinations of choice due to its stable democracy and being the fastest growing economy in Africa with abundant cheap labour.

IE in Apparel Manufacturing – II
Operator Rating

Every individual is unique and poses different capabilities and capacities, which consequently results in different performance levels; so it is the responsibility of the organization to identify rational ways to clearly differentiate among ‘excellent’, ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ operators, so that every individual operator is paid what he/she deserves unrest and dissatisfaction. Under same conditions an operator may perform uniformly, but the questions that need answers are: why does the same operator perform differently in different working conditions? How will one decide the different classes of operators? What will be the mode and mechanism of comparison? With whom one operator will be compared or what will be the reference benchmark or standard? And finally..., who will decide the benchmark?

If one broods on the trail of events that has marked evolution, one would realize that we are moving in a circle, including the garment industry… am I getting spiritual… certainly not, it is just a statement to prove my point. From customization to mass production to mass customization and now back to customization again with the retailer coming back full circle to start offering customized clothing. Even if one looks at fashion, it keeps coming back, resurfacing with little or no variations… The best example of course is our relation with nature… we exploited nature for many years and now we are back to our roots, propagating organic and sustainable methods and materials!

The Bangalore garment manufacturing industry is undergoing a transformation with greater emphasis on product development and expansion into newer locales on the outskirts. In fact the biggest talking point at the recently concluded Bangalore edition of GTE was the evolution of the garment industry in the region and fresh thrust for technology providers. Though the fair this year was smaller, it attached quality visitors in large numbers due to its proximity to Peenya and Yeshwantpur industrial areas, the two major garment manufacturing hubs of the city.
