When the wind comes some people build a wall & some will start operating wind mills. The cost of manufacturing is going up & buying price coming down & people have to find ways to reduce the cost, where the Work Study comes as a fundamental tool.
Work study will assist to cut down the cost using the available resources to get the optimal out put without adding extra cost.
Now-a-days, the garment manufacturing and retailing business face very high competition from various directions like design, lead time, compliances etc. However, price will be the ultimate factor to be in the business. Therefore, garment manufacturers, all over the world, think about “How to reduce the product cost” to be competitive in the global market.
“Product cost depends on how effective the utilization of resources is”. The main resources are Man, Machine, Material, and Method & Money. Work Study is the technique to control these five resources for the maximum productivity.
Though the above statement seems very simple, it has broader meaning. The factory layout and sewing floor layout has direct impact on labor resource utilization as well as the machine utilization. It may affect the quality of activities within the whole manufacturing process. If considered correctly “Cost of Quality” also will affect the final product cost.
Most of the Industrial Engineering (IE) techniques and systems had been developed in world into garment manufacturing in order to enhance the resources utilization
and productivity such as Japanese 5 S, Toyota Manufacturing system, Lean manufacturing. Out of all the systems fundamental tool to over come the excessive cost & meet today’s challenges in the sector is “WORK STUDY”.
