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.

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.

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.

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.

Sourcing practices in the global apparel industry are changing because of the removal of quotas, new trade agreements, and a drive by apparel importers to lower costs. This study addresses the implications of these changes for garment manufacturers in Commonwealth developing countries. The principal research activities behind the book consisted of face-to-face interviews in North America with top sourcing executives of apparel importing companies and senior executives of apparel manufacturing companies and other stakeholders in six Commonwealth developing countries. The findings indicate that almost without exception apparel manufacturers are struggling to lower costs and to increase productivity so as to remain competitive. Government and industry are thus faced with critical decisions on how best to support the apparel industry in their respective countries. The principal outputs of the study are enterprise level guidelines to remain competitive in the face of evolving sourcing policies, technology, and practices, complemented by related frameworks at government and institutional levels.
