Research published by University of Manchester, conducted by Prof. Doug Miller of UK says, in apparel manufacture there are three PMTS (PTS) consultancy firms specializing in Method Time Measurement (MTM). These are Sri Lanka-based Sew Easy, US-based MODAPTS and UK's GSD (Corporate) Ltd. Prof. Miller is working at University of Northumbria now.
PMTS is a database of different operation sewing times for method analysis and setting up of time standards for needle trade environment such as cutting, sewing, pressing, examination and packing. Proprietary PMTS database like GSD, SewEasy®, etc. are carefully selected improvised data code customized for sewn products industry wrote Professor Prabir Jana of NIFT, New Delhi in StitchWorld magazine.
UPS has 1000 industrial engineers out of a work force of 152,000. They set standards for closely supervised tasks says Larry Breakiorn,SVP.
“PMTS Systems such as SewEasy can contribute loads of values to the apparel industry by quick and accurate cost as per the international benchmark, of which all small medium and large sized factories can afford or easily use” says Charles Dagher, CEO of Dagher Consulting Group (DCG). Reported in Fiber2Fashion.
Use proven, modern Lean framework to train middle management on industrial engineering. Provide them with automated system to quickly perform routine work-study tasks. PC based systems such as SewEasy, etc. can be mastered in weeks said Keerthi Abe, Consultant, at the 3rd workshop of the "Productivity Improvement and Cost Reduction in SME Apparel Manufacturing Sector"; which was part of a 20 month SME-Apparel project funded by EU / Asia-Invest on RMG production.
At Sheffield Hallam University, UK & University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka James Marsh, Terrence Perera, Vijitha Ratnayake and Gamini Lanarolle published their productivity oriented garment manufacturing related findings. They have examined how both Lean and Six Sigma has been applied; and appear to say that both approaches blend in to lower overall costs, while improving the Environmental Sustainability. When contacted by Editor of Garment Times, Ratnayake stated the Hirdaramani Group as outstanding in practicing Industrial Engineering in Sri Lanka Apparel sector, and emphasized that most others are well above global average in Environmental Sustainability as well.
