EVENTS FLASH
A jacket is a versatile product with applications as sportswear, outerwear and winterwear, and in extreme weather activities such as mountaineering, sky diving, etc. This is the reason why companies such as North Face, Columbia, Patagonia, Berghaus and Canada Goose have grown significantly by focusing on jacket as the primary product of their outerwear portfolio. Consequently, the top jacket manufacturing countries – China, Veitnam, Indonesia and Bangladesh – are witnessing double digit growth in the jacket business, India though the third largest exporter of apparels, lags behind in this booming market.

IE in Apparel Manufacturing – V
Determining Allowances

A high level of human intervention coupled with other factors such as material variations, working conditions and dependency of human skills, make the task of target setting in apparel manufacturing more complicated, as compared to other industries. Increasingly, Time Study readings are taken to determine achievable targets, but often these studies fail to include unavoidable and legitimate lost time, which eventually affect output. Consequently, the analyst must make some adjustments to compensate for such losses. However, there is no clear-cut rational for these adjustments or allowances as it varies from organization to organization, process to process and is heavily dependent on the individual organization’s resources, working conditions and work practices. In this article, Manoj Tiwari, Associate Professor, NIFT Jodhpur and Dr. Prabir Jana, Professor, NIFT Delhi discuss the various allowances, its rational, factors affecting the different allowances and how to determine the allowance considering the practical aspects.

As another year comes to an end, the manufacturing industry is still at the crossroad of policy revivals… No doubt, there is a talk about labour reforms and push for manufacturing friendly environment, skill development and promoting industry incubators, but the truth is that the garment manufacturing industry remains inconsequential for the Government... Even our neighbour Bangladesh is growing exponentially and maturing from being a learner to now a trainer, while India remains a silent spectator in the midst of Government indifference to this sector. I have been saying time and again, and many articles have been published in the last one year

Capacity expansion was the growth driver for the Bangladeshi garment industry for a long time and then came the era of building backward & forward linkages. But is this the answer to the increasing competition, asks Razzak Sattar, Managing Director, UTAH Group, comprising of spinning, knitting, weaving, sewing, washing and label manufacturing facilities all under one roof. “Now is the time to build systems, work on improving productivities and efficiencies for utilising existing resources. It’s about tracking and monitoring your losses more closely than profits because every saving is profit.” Sattar, who hails from pre-independence India, believes in running his US $ 120 million business through 13 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
