EVENTS FLASH
The garment manufacturing sector about a decade ago was an unorganized and small-scale industry with factories coming up without much planning. As the industry matured, factory owners began to realize the importance of proper layout and design in enabling a fast, efficient and stress-free workflow between the different departments within a unit. Today, a factory’s well-planned layout through architecturally sound interventions, based on an understanding of the manufacturing processes, assembly line systems,

Industrial Engineering in Apparel Manufacturing – VI
Making of Operational Bulletin

Operation breakdown and sequence of operations are not important in the Make Through System since one operator sews the complete garment, but they are critically important in an Assembly Line because the construction of a garment is planned in steps where different operators are responsible for sewing different parts of the same garment, and each operator is given a specific task. An Assembly Line work involves preparing a document (called Operation Bulletin or OB) that lists out the total number of components in the garment, and includes a diagram showing the sequence of operations, a table with machineries and equipment required for each operation, needles and threads needed, and the work content of each operation, which is calculated either through Time Study or PMTS.

A lot has been written and said about ‘training’, the methodologies of training and the gaps in training for the garment export industry. There is no doubt that training is an integral part of ‘growing’ and no company can afford to ignore the importance of up-scaling skills to meet evolving challenges. Today, most of the training efforts are for operators and involve increasing skills and handling of new technologies. Little effort has gone into sharpening the skills of middle-level and senior executives/managers. Also most of the workshops held in this direction are more of a meeting ground then serious attempts at training.

Ludhiana is today at the cusp of change and despite back-to-back events that highlighted the latest technology, the enthusiasm was notable with nearly 28,000 visitors thronging the 21st edition of KnitWorld. The overall feel was positive and participants shared that the industry is preparing for the revival of business in the global market. Expressing his satisfaction on the fair, Narinder Mohan, Organizer, KnitWorld, said, “We are happy to serve the Ludhiana market and complete 21 years of our company’s success.
