Operation Breakdown and Machine Layout for Bra Manufacturing

Please post an article on operation breakdown and machine layout of a standard bra. I was unable to find anything on the Internet. ... asked by Isuru.

The following operation breakdown of a bra refers to a particular style. Note that, SAM values of the operations may vary according to the style, seam length, attachment and work aids used and machine type.

Prior to use below mentioned SAMs and operation sequence, discuss it with your engineers. I have attached the machine layout of bra making in an assembly line. To improve machine utilization few operations are clubbed together.
