WHY IT IS ALWAYS THE PRODUCTION & QUALITY SUFFERS DUE
For the past 22 years work experience in garments, out of
100% leadtimes from order confirmation to shipment of goods, approximately
30% usually is allocated to production process. But due to inefficiency
of getting details related to garment style, specs, late material &
sample approvals, late delivery of materials, defective samples / materials,
etc. - that 30 days will become 20% to 10%. To
catch up the shipment date, the production has to do overtime and sometimes
final inspection is done during night / dawn time with a high risk of defective
garments.Due to this problem, for the last
5 years I focused on the Manufacturing Operation Management set up ( computerized
)that positively improve the reduction of Productivity and Quality Killers
- Pro-active approach.
