'Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance' 
- James Baker.


There are many heavy duty theories for improving production in garment industry. Many of us go for implementing such difficult-to-understand and difficult-to-apply methods. Somehow we forget to apply simple things those have enough potential to bring improvement in production.

Floor performance can be improved by saving time, increasing production, saving cost of production, increasing workers' health and safety etc. All these are possible by taking care of small things. To make your factory better and improve overall performance, keep your eyes in small things as well. Bring changes that give you greater benefits.

  7. Feed defect free cuttings to line
  8. Save time by quick replacement of broken needles and empty thread spools 
  9. Only feed ready cuttings (component) to sewing lines. Don't allow re-cutting and trimming of components in line

  14. Keep spare machines for quick replacement at the time of machine break-down
  15. Schedule regular machine maintenance and follow the schedule
  16. Use work aids, guides and attachment wherever applicable
  17. Avoid parts matching at machine (by operator), if required keep one helper for part matching 
  18. Capture hourly production data and make hourly production report, display it in front of the line. Visuals always give positive impact to workers.
  19. Don't give back defective garments to the running line. It breaks working rhythm.
  20. Don't distract operators from their work by talking to them unnecessary
  21. Bonus tip: Keep drinking water dispenser as near as possible to sewing section
