Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Over time, the lack of understanding, failure to apprehend concepts and inability to find solutions results in myths that are passed down from one generation to the other. The Apparel industry, which is still largely depended on experience rather than education in many key departments, also has been carrying forward certain ‘myths’ or ‘untruths’ in various operations and processes that have stalled the growth of organisations. The gamut of myths ranges from simple processes like measuring work time to use of technology as in the case of CAD to understanding the fine line between Ironing and finishing. Surprisingly, no one has really attempted to move beyond the myths to uncover the truth and unlock the true potential of the process, technology or concept. Dr. Prabir Jana, takes a closer look at some of the popular myths that have hindered growth of not only organisations but also the industry and debunks the truth that lies beneath.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Getting higher productivity doesn’t mean working for more time with the available resources. It is all about how smartly we work. On a sewing floor, it refers to how efficient we are at doing a piece of work, i.e. opting the best method with the combination of most recent technology available. This not only increases the productivity but also saves money, improves quality by reducing defects. Following the above concept, a series of articles review the different levels of technology solutions available for an operation, the make and models of machinery and equipment available in the market. At the outset, it must be borne in mind that many of the operations are complex, time consuming and require a skilled operator. The process can be greatly simplified by using automatic machines available for the purpose, which, promisingly enough, also give a fair ROI. This is calculated for each of the operations to gauge the overall advantage an automatic machine holds over a basic manually operated one.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

There is surely a bridge between the management goal and the performance of employees working to achieve that goal, be it any industry and the apparel sector is not an exception. Designing a workplace that can bridge this gap to deliver the maximum output is an important area of concern. Though, there are many technologies available in the market today that can help the organizations to overcome the challenges and compete with their competitors. One of the major challenges is the cost associated with technologies which makes it difficult to be opted by small manufacturers and secondly, the lack of technical know-how as well as understanding of the technology. One of the proven solutions is: changing the workplace into an engineered workplace that can help the manufacturers in achieving the desired goals and targets with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This series will take the garment manufacturers through a number of articles that will help them identify new ways and methodologies that will result in improved productivity and the key of all the articles remains the same: re-engineering the current workplace into a workstation.
