Garment Manufacturing Process Flow Chart

The garment manufacturing process involved a number of processes from order receiving to dispatching shipment of the finished garments. A process flow chart helps to understand how raw materials are moved from one process to another process until raw materials are transformed into the desired product (garments).

To be noted that a process flow chart made for the garment manufacturing processes will vary based on manufacturing facility and product types. As some companies do whole process in single plant when others do production jobs and other auxiliary processes are outsourced.

Based on present apparel industry, garment manufacturing processes are categorized as
  • Pre-Production Processes - Pre-production process includes sampling, sourcing of raw materials, Approvals, PP meeting etc. Read this for further reading on pre-production processes.
  • Production processes - Production processes are cutting, sewing etc.
  • Post production processes - thread trimming, pressing, checking, folding and packing, shipment inspection etc.

Instead of making a single process flow chart, I have made one chart for major processes and two separate charts for cutting room processes and finishing processes for detailed process chart.

    1. PP stands for Pre-Production
      The complete term is 'PP Meeting' which means pre-production meeting.
