Industrial engineering

Industrial engineering is one of the most important departments for every garments or factory. Today’s maximum factory is run by industrial engineers.  Industrial engineers reduce cost, increase production and productivity and efficiency. So every garment must need to run by the industrial engineering department.


 Process Flow Chart of Industrial Engineering (IE):

Industrial Engineer

Negotiation with merchandiser

If in-house accessories & fabric then do the pre production meeting


Line balancing

Go for production based on planning

Production continuous meeting

To achieved production as planning

Production continuing (follow up)


Industrial engineering team flourishing the project by doing ……

1.To Guiding the Company towards the goal (Profit maximization)

2.To Best Utilization of 5M (Man,Machine,Material,Method & Money) in a Project.

3.To Waste elimination & value addition in Manufacturing Unit.

4.To Develop Manufacturing Culture & Discipline (Lean Culture.)

·         Garments Planning

  1. Collect PO. Wise Order Status.
  2. Prepare Order Summary Sheet.
  3. Distribute Month wise Order Booking.
  4. Allocate Line wise SMV & Learning Curve on the basis of experience database.
  5. Control & Monitor (MRP-1) Material Requirement Planning Chart.
  6. Line Loading Plan Prepared by Gantt chart.
  7. Prepare Order summary critical path.

·         Operation -Cutting

  1. Finished fabric follow-up.
  2. Cutting Table Plan & Daily Target Setup.
  3. Monitor Marker Efficiency % & Necessary Cut mark/Notch mark allocation.
  4. Cutting Process flow chart Prepare & Maintain.
  5. Manpower allocation by Simulation Analysis.
  6. Co-ordinate with management for quick decision such as Test cut Report
    Pattern Rectify, Size set report, Fabric approval.
  7. Try to establish Japanese “5S” to maintain discipline.
  8. Try to establish Lean Manufacturing Culture to waste elimination & maximize
    value addition time such machining time.
  9. Reduce unnecessary process & material movement.

·         Operation- Sewing

  1. Layout setup as per Operation Bulletin.
  2. 5M Control & prepare MIS Sheet.
  3. Material Unnecessary Flow Control.
  4. Line balancing.
  5. Skill Inventory Prepare by skill grading & Salary fixation.
  6. Reduce layout gap (Zero) & Input gap.
  7. Ensure next day input on the basis of shipment priority.
  8. Worker motivation to achieve their potential.
  9. Co-ordinate with management for quick decision.
  10. Try to Develop “Lean Manufacturing Culture” which will reduce Resource
    requirement, operating cost & Wastage.
  11. Try to Establish Japanese “5S” Concept to improve manufacturing discipline.

·         Operation -Finishing

  1. Time Study.
  2. Capacity Study.
  3. Production Study.
  4. Monitor Critical Area.
  5. Critical Operation Analysis.
  6. Hourly Production Record & Efficiency calculation.
  7. Improve Low Efficiency Area.
  8. Check Process Target & OPN CODE.
  9. Check Operator Handling.
  10. Findout Bottleneck & Overflow Area & give sol.
  11. Develop Lean Manufacturing Culture.
  12. Establish Japanese 5S Concept.
  13. Co-ordinate with management for quick decision.
