I have been a Lean Management Consultant for the past decade and have been asked interesting questions by my prospects/clients. I’d have to say, the most made statement has been “Lean only works in the Automotive Industry and is not applicable to our industry…”. This misconception is what triggered me to write a book on Lean for the various industries that I consult in, i.e. one book for every industry. This book on the application of LEAN in Apparel Manufacturing, is my first foray into authoring a book. This book is an attempt to educate its readers on how to implement the practical aspects of LEAN, on the shopfloor. It begins with the dissemination of the interrelated elements of the Toyota Production System, the objective of TPS and its importance in Production Management. The concepts of LEAN and waste elimination are then explained with an overview of the Seven Types of Manufacturing Wastes. Value Stream Mapping, a frequently used tool to map the waste, has been elaborated in four chapters. These chapters explain concepts like Product Family Matrix, KPI definitions, guiding principles to design a Lean process and the construction of the ‘AS IS’ and the ‘TO BE’ Value Stream Maps. Individual chapters are devoted to the elements of TPS like 5S, Visual Management, Skill Management, Process Standardization and Single Minute Exchange of Dies. These chapters explain the concepts and their application in detail, equipping you with the required tools and techniques. The chapter on Balanced Score Card and Hoshin Kanri explains the mechanism of aligning the vision of the factory to the individual objectives. The chapters on A3 Problem Solving and Quality Management initiate the readers to a scientific methodology of problem solving. We follow up with chapters on Kanban Systems and WIP Management in order to get a sense of Pull systems. The chapter on Total Productive Maintenance lays emphasis on measurement of OEE% and the problem-solving cascade. We end this book with chapters on Shopfloor Control, sustaining a Lean culture and providing a Lean Implementation Model for Apparel Manufacturing. I would like to extend my gratitude to Deepak Mohindra, Chairman, Apparel Resources for his continued support and guidance. My wife Manali, my daughters Aishwarya & Arya and my mother Padma, have also been my constant motivators. I would also like to thank my past and current clients for implementing my advice. This book would be incomplete without mentioning Ashish Grover, who was a great support during preliminary Lean pilots on the garmenting shopfloor. This book is my tribute to him. I hope that this book creates more value for you and your organization. Wish you all the best in your LEAN journey!

While there is pressure (from buyers), inclination (within self to do better) and a heightened aspiration among apparel manufacturers to use Industrial Engineering (IE) like other more industrialized sectors, there is no specific book as such dealing with IE in relation to apparel manufacturing. The existing books that are already written on IE possess academic rigour and generic functions applicable across industries, thus making it difficult for the practitioners to refer and clear discrete doubts related to apparel manufacturing. Undoubtedly, work study is the centrepiece of Industrial Engineering; however apart from work study, industrial engineers in apparel industry are also supposed to perform various other functions like preparing operation breakdown and operation flow chart, selecting machine type and attachment and workaids, planning machine layout for maximizing unidirectional material movement, optimising inventory and storage space and maintaining workplace health and safety. These are some of the areas that often lack significant attention. This practitioner’s handbook is an amalgamation of theory and practices, including steps of implementation and common mistakes. A balanced approached is taken to make it equally meaningful and useful for the academics as well as the industry. A unique section titled “industry practices” is incorporated at the end of each chapter which shares the typical practices, constraints and benefits accrued by the industry, which will give meaningful insight to the readers and help them relate theory with actual practice.

Master's Thesis from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: In this thesis different apparel industries are overseen using interviews, secondary data and observations, a survey is also conducted to gather general information and effectiveness of lean and its tools. For the survival in the present race of industries it is very important to upgrade and calibrate the technology. Lean manufacturing concept is applied to Pakistan’s Textile trade. The determination of conducting this study is to check that how much lean is effective; it is a multidimensional approach only the major dimensions are discussed in this research like reducing waste and improving productivity in garment production. I Two lean tools are also implemented. Resultantly the data gathered concludes that lean approach is highly efficient, but still a long way to go on the road of lean. The conducted survey shows that there is a good awareness regarding the lean approach, management knows that lean manufacturing is very helpful but there are unable in implementation, there is a less implementation knowledge and training staff in the companies. Only two lean tools are implemented in this thesis and more tools can be implemented in the future.

There are some very good books available that explain the Lean Manufacturing theory and touch on implementing its techniques. However, you cannot learn "how to be" lean from merely reading the theory. And to be successful in the real-work environment you need a clear comprehension of how lean techniques work, rather than just a remote understanding of what they are. You need to know what does and does not work in different situations. And you need the benefit of practical experience in their implementation. Lean Manufacturing: Tools, Techniques, and How to Use Them gives you the benefit of author and practitioner William Feld's 15 years of hands-on experience - and the lessons he's learned. Feld provides insight into the appropriate use of assessment, analysis, design, and, most importantly, deployment of a successful lean manufacturing program. Packed with practical advice and tips but not bogged down in theory, this book covers how, why, when, and what to do while implementing lean manufacturing. It equips you with the tools and techniques you need along with an understanding of how and why they work. Feld explores why an integrated approach is so much more beneficial in securing sustained improvement. He focuses on the interdependency of the Five Primary Elements: organization, metrics, logistics, manufacturing flow, and process control. He describes a proven, applied approach to creating a lean program using these elements. To keep up globally, and even locally, your manufacturing operation must be responsive, flexible, predictable, and consistent. You must continually improve manufacturing operations and cultivate a self directed work force driven by output based, customer performance criteria. By applying what you learn from Lean Manufacturing: Tools, Techniques, and How to Use Them you can build a workforce - and an organization - with the capacity to satisfy world class expectations now and into the future.

Garment manufacturing companies now a day's facing global competition. Garment manufacturers generally work on the principle of economies of scale. Here, the large fixed costs of production are depreciation-intensive because of huge capital investments made in high volume operations. So, garment industry needs some manufacturing management philosophies like lean manufacturing. The purpose of this work is to investigate the use of lean manufacturing and value stream mapping in the garment industry of Jaipur. In the first stage of study a questionnaire survey was used to explore adoption of lean manufacturing, lean manufacturing tools and techniques used, driving forces and barriers in lean implementation. In the second stage of study a value stream mapping was used to study current state and after studying it a future state map was created to eliminate waste. For elimination of waste takt time was calculated and the cycle time was maintained around the takt time. For value stream mapping the data was collected by means of stop watch time study. The survey results show that many of companies in the apparel industry are not working with lean manufacturing.
