Technology and Education Inputs for Productivity Enhancement in Garment Manufacturing in the Developing World


Efficient production management in the garment manufacturing industry is estimated by using work measurement techniques. These techniques are based on standard processing timings. Several studies have been undertaken using the time study technique to enhance productivity of the garment production lines in an apparel manufacturing factory. Efficiency is translated into the time spent on carrying out a particular function, this time consumption is dependent upon the worker’s level of fatigue and quality of output. The entire onus of responsibility of the worker’s output becomes anchored on his or her ability to carry out repetitive actions over long durations of time.
