In trimming operation sides of the pocket, seams, cuffs(if any) i.e. tiny extensions of the thread are trimmed to give a uniform and finished lookto the garment. After trimming the general checking is done to see the above processesare carried out correctly or not. Ironing is done to set crease wherever required and toremove unwanted wrinkles. This gives a finished look to the garment. After ironing thegarment is sent for final checking where the garment is finally checked for any flaws anddefects. After the final checking the garments are sent for measurement checking beforethe folding operation, here the garment is checked for its measurements against originals.This step is the last operation in finishing which is folding, this includes fastening of allthe tags in proper fashion and folding the garment as per the buyer‟s requirement.LT KARLE – ANOOP SINGH & RAJEEV SHARAN 59 NIFT, BANGALORE

  64. 64. Apparel internship (2008-2012)QUALITY ASSURANCEEnsuring the production of the garment with reference to the standard specification isknown as quality control. Quality of the garment is inspected in various stages fromfabric to finished garment.Fabric QualityOnce the fabric is received by the stores, it is checked by quality department by 4 pointsystem. Rejection of fabric should be informed to the supplier before 1 week, in case ofno information from the garment unit, the fabric is considered as accepted by the unit andthe supplier won‟t accept any more rejections. So, quality team should work as soon asfabric in-house happens.Common defects found during 4 point inspection 1. Broken stitches 2. Contamination 3. Double pick 4. Miss weave 5. Miss end 6. Stain 7.

  84. 84. Apparel internship (2008-2012)INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERINGIndustrial Engineering Department is one of most important department in the industry.It helps in up gradation of the production department with different types of studies in thedepartment like capacity, time, production, motion study. To improve the production &achieve target in time it is setup in batch & SAM (standard allotted minute) is calculated.IED follows the GENERAL SEWING DATA (GSD) systemProductivity = the ratio of output produced to the input resources utilized in theproduction.QUALITY OBJECTIVES:100% of time actual SMV shall match with costed SMV with +/- 5% variation (monthly)100% of time actual thread consumption shall match with costed thread consumptionwith +/- 5% variation (monthly).Preparation for the styles so as to reach learning curve targets min of 95%.Maintain helper numbers in sewing line as per SMV‟s (with 5% max variation)Functions of IE department at Karle:Industrial Engineering (IE) department in Karle Group is located in new head office. Ithas two wings. Each of the wings has two teams namely development team working fromhead office and Implementation team working at our apparel factories. The departmentuses specialized software called GSD (general sewing data). 1) Feasibility study: The development team studies the tech pack and determines whether a particular style is possible to manufacture in our organization considering the facilities/resources we have. This information will help the organization to decide whether to accept or reject a particular business proposal.LT KARLE – ANOOP SINGH & RAJEEV SHARAN 84 NIFT, BANGALORE
  85. 85. Apparel internship (2008-2012) 2) Time study: The development team studies the time required for manufacturing a particular style. For this purpose the various operations involved in a style are segregated and time required for performance of each operation is calculated. By adding all these time requirements the basic minutes is derived. Another 15% to 20% time is added as human fatigue to determine the time required for manufacturing a garment which is called standard minute value (SMV). This information is required by costing, production planning and production departments. 3) Calculating thread consumption: The development team determines the requirements of thread for manufacturing a style. This information is required for the (a) costing department to arrive at the price to be quoted for the buyer, and (b) merchandising department to decide the quantity of thread to be purchased. 4) Simplifying the style process: The development team works with technicians of sampling department to simplify the construction of a garment at the product development stage itself. 5) Making a sample piece at the factory: After the pre production meeting and before the pilot run production, the implementation team at the unit will prepare a sample piece of the garment to understand the technicalities involved in a style. Difficulties if any found at this level will be resolved by discussing with development team and sampling department. 6) Skill matrix for tailors: The implementation team is responsible for preparing skill matrix of all the tailors working in the unit. This will help the industrial engineers to understand the skill level of each and every tailor so that they can be deployed at appropriate places in the production line. 7) Batch Setting: Before loading a style to production line, the implementation team has to ensure that the number of production lines is available, all machines are in proper condition and there is sufficient number of trained people to handle all the critical operations. 8) Line Balancing: The implementation team has to study the process involved, the time required for each operations, the competent tailors to be placed at eachLT KARLE – ANOOP SINGH & RAJEEV SHARAN 85 NIFT, BANGALORE
  86. 86. Apparel internship (2008-2012) machine of the production line, and the tasks to be performed by each tailors so that all the tailors in the line get the work properly distributed. 9) Actual time study: The SMV calculated by development team is only an estimate done in controlled condition at head office The implementation team will actually do the time study at the factory after a style is loaded for mass production. This will help the I.E. department to ascertain the variation between the SMV calculated by development team and the actual time consumed for making a garment. It will also help the production planning department to fix the daily production targets for the production functionaries. 10) Daily production report: The implementation team prepares the daily production report for each style and sends it to production planning department.Role of IEPre productionAnalyze the garmentSee the 3 M‟s: MAN MATERIAL AND MACHINE requirement for the particulargarment and quantityThis includes  Operation break down  Thread consumption report  Machine list  Machine layoutDuring productionLine balancing  Theoretical balancing :based on the SMV values  Dynamic balancing: practical one based on the absenteeismLT KARLE – ANOOP SINGH & RAJEEV SHARAN 86 NIFT, BANGALORE
