Abstract— now –a-days global competition in manufacturing and changing customer demand are resulting in a trend towards greater product variety and innovation. Shorter product life cycles lower unit costs and higher product quality (Ralston and Munton1987: Cohen, 1998).a concept of Modular manufacturing to integrate intelligent and complex machines...

Like most industries that adopt a reactive manufacturing strategy, the clothing industry changes only when external forces dictate that the current approach or strategy will no longer satisfy the prevailing business environment. This paper presents the Apparel Manufacturing Systems and discusses the underlying premises that support the success of Apparel Production Systems both in the formative stages and during sustained operation. A review of the known origins of manufacturing processes illustrate how the production system can be used to advantage for clothing manufacture. No single solution fits all products/tasks in fully optimizing Socio technical System (STS), given different technologies, environment and people, etc. An attempt was made in this paper to show the handy uses of diverse production system in Bangladeshi Garments Industries.

Książka przedstawia problematykę efektywności ekonomicznej procesów produkcyjnych i logistycznych. Na podstawie dostępnych danych, wyników badań własnych oraz innych autorów ale też własnych symulacji przedstawiono czynniki tej efektywności i jej znaczenie dla wyników finansowych przedsiębiorstw, w których te procesy są realizowane. Omówiono równie możliwości poprawy tej efektywności dzięki m.in. wykorzystaniu koncepcji zarządzania procesowego (Lean Management, Six-Sigma). Problematykę tą przedstawiono na przykładzie trzech branż przemysłu rolno- spożywczego, przemysłu dziewiarsko-odzieżowego oraz sektora usług TSL (transport, spedycja, logistyka). Książka jest podsumowaniem wieloletnich badań autora w dziedzinie efektywności ekonomicznej procesów.

This book aims to provide a broad conceptual and theoretical perspective of apparel manufacturing process starting from raw material selection to packaging and dispatch of goods. Further, engineering practices followed in an apparel industry for production planning and control, line balancing, implementation of industrial engineering concepts in apparel manufacturing, merchandising activities and garment costing have been included, and they will serve as a foundation for future apparel professionals. The book addresses the technical aspects in each section of garment manufacturing process with considered quality aspects. This book also covers the production planning process and production balancing activities. It addresses the technical aspects in each section of garment manufacturing process and quality aspects to be considered in each process. Garment engineering questions each process/operation of the total work content and can reduce the work content and increase profitability by using innovative methods of construction and technology. This book covers the production planning process, production balancing activities, and application of industrial engineering concepts in garment engineering. Further, the merchandising activities and garment costing procedures will deal with some practical examples. This book is primarily intended for textile technology and fashion technology students in universities and colleges, researchers, industrialists and academicians, as well as professionals in the apparel and textile industry.

The garment industries are always trying to improve production and the quality of the garments to sustain in the enormous competitive market. The sustainability and profitability of garment industry is governed by the productivity of that industry. Garment manufacturing involves number of operations carried out at different spots by the operators. All these activity need to be performed in synchronized, planned and timely to achieve desired productivity. There are various practices and methods applied in industries to improve productivity of the industries, time study is one of the effective tool used by almost all garment industry for improving production rate. This paper deals with time study of manufacturing process of Shirts and Leggings. In which we have studied the time taken in each steps of garment manufacturing. The observations of the time study elaborate on the scope for reduction the time taken and improvement in the production of the garment industry. One of the important finding from this study is that the timely supply of pieces and order sheets plays vital role in improving productivity of the industry.
