Due to fast garments productivity criteria, a garments export order can be shipped in timely. Sometimes, it’s too tough to shipping an order in its actual time due to lower productivity of garments. There are some key factors, which influence to reduce the garments production. Delay shipment is the result of that.
Factors that reduce Garments Production:
The main key factors that decrease garments production are discussed in the following:
1. Pattern problem:
Sometimes it’s seen that some parts of the patterns are missing. Because the marker did not include the actual number of garments parts. It’s probably due to the mixing with different sizes. This creates problem in the next processes and finally decreasing the garments production.
2. Fabric spreading problem:
Incorrect tension of plies (Fabric spreading too tight or too loose) is the main cause occurred during fabric spreading. This will result in garments part not fitting during sewing and finished garments cannot meet the proper size tolerance. Ultimately decreasing the garments production.
3. Fabric cutting problem:
In cutting time, sometimes cutting operator failed to follow the marker lines, resulting in deformed garments parts. There top and bottom plies can be different sizes if the straight knife is allowed to lean or if the round knife is used on too high speed. These types of factors influence to decrease the garments production.
4. Sewing problem:
During sewing, following problems can inspire to decrease garments production-
- Machine break down,
- Machine stoppage,
- Imbalance line,
- Lack of lay-out planning,
- Level of individual operator performance,
- Operator absence,
- Quality falls during online Q.C check.
All the above points are discussed in the below:
a. Machine break down:
Machine break down, needle break down is a common scenario during garments manufacturing. It will not hamper the single process only; also create a lot of problems for the next sewing processes. As a result whole production will be reduced.
b. Machine stoppage:
If machine does not run continuously, is the most important factor for decreasing garments production. So, operator assistant should continuously feed to the line for achieving higher garments production.
c. Imbalance line:
For getting maximum production from a production line, all the line should be balanced. If it’s not followed during garments sewing, ultimately all the sewing processes will be hampered which resulting the decreasing of garments production.
d. Lack of lay-out planning:
Proper lay-out planning is one of the most important factors for achieving higher amount of garments production. If can’t, ultimately decreasing the garments production.
e. Level of individual operator performance:
In factory it’s seen that some operators are too much efficient in completing his/her duty, where others are not like them. In a garments production line, if it’s happened un-naturally, then it will create more problems during completing a garments sewing. As a result, garments production will be decreased.
f. Operator absence:
Operator absence is a burning problem for the garments manufacturing factory. It creates a lot of problem which can not solve in a sudden moment. Due to absence of any operator, whole sewing department have to face extra pressure, which influence other operators to create unwanted mistake in sewing. As a result, decrease the garments production.
g. Quality falls during online Q.C check:
It is another one that can easily decrease the garments production by creating excessive problems in garments sewing. Garments will back every time if it’s not approved by the quality department and should take necessary steps to solve that in garments sewing section.
