Abstract:

Sewing is the stage in apparel manufacturing process sequence where large number of work force is employed compared to other stages of manufacturing processes. The quality of garments made in sewing depends upon various factors such as skill of sewing machine operator, machine settings, fabric and thread quality etc. Since many factors involved in determining the quality of product, possibility for occurrences of defects is also very high. In order to achieve maximum productivity and efficiency in sewing room, it is important to control and minimize the defects in sewing process. In this project an attempt is made to study the various defects occurs in sewing room for 10 different garment styles. The data collected has been analysed and suitable remedial measures have been supported. The study reveals but there is scope for improvement of productivity by effective management and quality of production.
