EVENTS FLASH
The operating overheads of an apparel manufacturing facility reflect heavily on the costing of the products manufactured in that facility. Of these overheads, electricity consumption towards lighting and maintaining optimal temperature on the shop floor including the running of sewing, finishing, embroidery and other heavy machines, contribute greatly to the cost per machine per minute. The industry has been on the lookout for alternate sources of energy

Energy Audits – The New Benchmark for Sustainability and Cost Competitiveness

After raw material and labour, energy costs are the third largest component of the operations cost. Statistics such as these have urged apparel manufacturers to go beyond making few changes in electric fittings and equipments to save energy and go for comprehensive assessments or energy audits of their facilities to inspect and analyze the energy flows (in form of electricity and fuel) for energy conservation. Radnik Exports, Orient Fashions, MM Exports, Pee Empro Exports, Prathiba Syntex Ltd., Raymond Ltd., Technocraft, Banswara Syntex and Neetee Clothing, are a few apparel manufacturers across India that have undergone third party energy audits. The pursuit of energy efficiency continues as several factories have designated in-house energy auditors as well, who keep a constant tab on the energy consumptions.

Invest in India to Incredible India to Make in India… And now we are foisted with another feel good, feel positive vision by Modi Sarkar, “Make in India”… I distinctly remember my association with “India Investment Center” way back in 1990 when a similar thrust was also accorded in the form of “Invest in India”… How can this push be any different when issues in those times and today are not very different; same archaic labour laws still prevail, infrastructure has not improved much, customs not remotely friendly, obtaining work visa still as stringent, and I would not like to comment on ‘Babuism’…

The IE functions in most factories is primarily limited to work measurement which constitutes Method Study and Time Study of the same method, but with limited application in practice whereas work measurement is one important activity and should be done with utmost care and accuracy. Deviation from the standard method may lead to spending excess time to do the same activity which leads to process imbalance that makes the product costlier and result into reduced profitability to the organization. Besides its function as a tool for productivity improvement, work measurement also works as a base for costing, production planning and scheduling the process. Work measurement is the application of techniques designed to establish the time for a qualified worker to carry out a task at a defined rate of working.
