QA is the systematic monitoring andevaluationof the
various aspects of a project, service or facility to
maximize the probability that standards of quality are
being attained by the production process.
Two principles included in Quality Assurance are:
"Fit for purpose", the product should be suitable for the
intended purpose, and
"Right first time", mistakes should be eliminated.

Quality Assurance includes regulation of the

quality of raw materials, assemblies, products and
components, services related to production, and
management, production andinspection processes.

Functions of quality assurance department:Pre-production

Audit:In this stage auditing is mainly done for the stages

which come before the production and that is the sampling stage..
Cutting Audit

pattern notches (accuracy of patterns)
Sewing audit

In line audit: Here the garments are checked during their different stages
of manufacturing .

End line audit :-Here the garments are checked after the entire process is
over and the specifications are mainly based on the dimensions of the
garment at the critical positions and then the placements of the labels.


Garment inspection

Here some of main fabric properties that are taken into

consideration for garment manufacturing for export
Overall look of the garment.

Right formation of the garment.

Feel and fall of the garment.
Physical properties.
Colour fastness of the garment.
Finishing properties
Presentation of the final produced garment.

There are certain quality related problems in garment

manufacturing that should not be over looked:
Sewing defects -Like open seams, wrong stitching
techniques used, same colour garment, but usage of
different colour threads on the garment, miss out of
stitches in between, creasing of the garment, erroneous
thread tension and raw edges are some sewing defects
that could occur so should be taken care of.
Colour effects -Colour defects that could occur are
difference of the colour of final produced garment to the
sample shown, accessories used are of wrong colour
combination and mismatching of dye amongst the

Sizing defects -Wrong gradation of sizes, difference in

measurement of a garment part from other, for

example- sleeves of XL size but body of L size. Such
defects do not occur has to be seen too.
Garment defects -During manufacturing process defects
could occur like faulty zippers, irregular hemming, loose
buttons, raw edges, improper button holes, uneven
parts, inappropriate trimming, and difference in fabric

Trims inspection -Like garments, trims are not checked

for 100%. Quality inspector only needs to confirm that
bulk trims are sourced as per required standards .
Trims are normally being checked against standards on
the following parameters.
Shade matching
Color bleeding
Width and thickness
Number and size
Fiber content
Text content/font/language in labels and tags

Fabric and accessories department is divided into

tthree sections:-

Fabric reconciliation
Fabric reconciliation is a process that is used to do fabric
analysis. It means how the total purchased fabric is used by
a factory. What percentage of the fabric is actually used to
make garments, what percentage of the purchased fabric is
left after shipment as dead stock, and how much fabric is
lost as wastage.

In apparel manufacturing unit; embroidery is special types
of task. It is done according to the buyer requirement
Process Flow of Embroidery: Embroidery is done according
to the following sequence in a A.S .FASHIONS .PVT .LTD
At first designed the buyer design by CAD software

The design software install into the machine

The fabric clamped by the clamp board

Then run the machine until finished the design

Then the fabric collects for delivery

Objects of Fabric Spreading:
To place the number of fabric plies to the length of the marker plan
correctly aligned as to the length and width.
To cut garments in large scale and saving fabric through the use of
multi garments marker plan and the saving in cutting time per
garment that result from cutting many piles at the same time.
To make every ply flat and plane.
At correct tension.
Cutting spread are classified by three factors.

T he linear factor of the material

The direction of the material surface with respect to the cutting
table surface
The direction of the surface nap or design with respect to the
ends of tread.


A cutting department of a garment manufacturing unit

includes following sub-processes
Fabric relaxation
Fabric spreading / layering on cutting table
Marker making
Cutting - manual cutting (using scissors), machine cutting,
automatic cutting.
Numbering of garment plies (parts)
Shorting and Bundling
Inspection of cut components
Shorting of printed and embroidery panels
Re-cutting of panels
Fusing garment components

Example of one style in as fashion ( for spreading

, laying and cutting):Style no-646130 , colour index 163
In one lay there are 200 layers( and even one lyer
in one lay in single jersey that curls at edges ) .

Sewing department is the heart of a manufacturing
unit. Cut components are assembled in sewing
department in assembly line.
Manufacturing system used PBS
List of sub-processes those are done in sewing
department includes.
Making garment parts
Sewing full garment
Making garment accessories like dori, tabs, cords etc.
Checking of stitched garments
Alteration work of defective garments

Pre sewing functions

Before the actual task of sewing begins, there are
certain other tasks that have to be taken care of which
can be termed as fabric handling functionsPly separation;
Placing the fabric on working table;
Guiding the fabric towards sewing needle;
and tension control of fabric during the sewing process.
Planning of sewing process: Sequence of seams to be
stitched is determined before the sewing starts. Which
part will be joined first, what stitches will follow one
another, etc. are decided. However, some stitches have
to be necessarily done before or after another stitch.

Sewing Fabrics
The sewing process consists of mainly three functionsguiding fabric towards needle;
sewing of the fabric edge;
and rotation around the needle.
Significant Aspects of Sewing
Thread tension and consumption: Correct balancing of the stitch
and the tension given to the threads is very important for quality
stitch formation. Thread consumption, which is closely associated
with correct stitch.
Presser- foot displacement and compressing force: If this system is
not efficient then it results into irregular seams and many other
defects, especially when running on high speed.
Needle penetration force measurement -Needle penetration force
is one of the variables whose measurement is important for the
analysis of quality problems or "sewability testing" and also quality


Washing of garment
Buttoning and button holing
Thread trimming
Checking of washed / unwashed garments
Stain removingby tipol ,spotter.
Ironing or Pressing
Final checking of garments after ironing
Mending / repair work( ex- hand embroidery work and

buttoning that breaks in washing )

Folding and packing

This department is responsible for export related
documentation ,dispatching goods to ports, and communicating
with buyers warehouse and distribution centre.
Different types of price quotation in export trade
Ex-factory or local Price quotation -This type of quotation
represents the simplest arrangement. The importer is presumed
to have bought the goods right at the exporters factory. All
costs and risks from thereon become the buyers problem. The
Free Alongside ship (FAS) price quotation-The use of this term in
the quotation means that the exporter to be responsible for the
goods until they are placed alongside the ship. All charges
incurred up to that point must be borne by the seller. F.A.S. price
is slightly higher than the ex-factory price, since the exporter
undertakes to transport the goods to the point of shipment.

F.O.B. (Free on Board) Price Quotation-F.O.B. Price includes

actual placement of goods abroad the ship. The F.O.B price will
includes F.A.S. price plus costs of shipping and boarding on ship.
Ex-ship Price Quotation: This means that the exporter agrees to

meet all expenses to forward the goods to destination port of

the importer. But the expenses towards taking delivery of the
goods from the port authorities and expenses to be incurred
thereafter will be met out by the importer.
Duty paid Price Quotation or Delivery Duty-paid Quotation:
Under this, the exporter bears complete responsibility for the
delivery of goods at a particular destination in the importers
country. He makes arrangement of taking delivery of the goods
at the foreign port, pays necessary duties/taxes and handling,
and provides for further inland transportation in the importers

ERP :- Technosoft is the erp used in a.s. fashions
.pvt.ltd .This software is in use since 2013. Various
usages of erp are: Accounting In accounting it is used to keep record of all
expenses and profit .
Updates of each departments
It has made easy to get all informations ( ex- in which
stage is style ?, how many expenses are going in
respective departments ) of a style just by selecting
style no .

CAD:-Tukacad is the cad used by a.s.fashions . It is

user friendly . tucacad provides online facility also for
grading and marker making. Various usages of CAD are: it provides the facility of PGM ( pattern making ,
grading , marker making )
waste% is low in cad .
very less time in sample making
a.s.fashions use cad in pattern making and grading
not in marker making because the order they get are
mostly single jersey ,chiffon ,poly chiffon , weightless
georget in which which width vary in each plies but
printout of cad marker cant adjust in varied width .

Merchandiser is the BRIDGE between the industry and the

Project title- To increase productivity by reducing lead
Project duration 7 weeks
Project mentor- Ms Aboli Naik
Background-In a world where timeline is everything ,on
time time delivery becomes a critical component of each
success story to meet customer requirement.
The Indian garment industry has a major problem in the
recent economical scenario.
I analyzed the lead time in a.s fashions pvt.ltd and tried to
find out where the waste exists so that it can be eliminated .
Objectives- To be able to understand the delays and its
causes and propose a system by which delays can be

Methodology :In start three weeks I did work study of cutting

,embroidery and stitching and finishing department and
found that are as follow: In stitching department ,I observed that in start 15 days
of manufacturing : Needle stoppage was there .( off standard time was
Rate of mostly operator was 80 only .
While in reverse in last 15 days of production there
were: Least off standard time
Rate of mostly operators was almost 100

In the next 4 weeks I came to the actual cause behind off

std time and low rate in stitching department and suggested
a solution that was also implemented.
After analyzing and talking with operators and supervisors I
came to know that
The causes behind the problems were: Line Balancing was done once in a day only, where as in the
style where only 5 days of manufacturing were left
supervisors had to report production manager after every 1
hour and then accordingly rebalancing was done.
Operators wanted to do overtime and so they did not pay
attention in daily clock time and they can get overtime only
when the schedules go behind .
They did not have target to stitch fixed amount of garments
in a day .

After talking with production manager and analyzing the

style of which only 3-5 days were left to go I came to the
solution that are as follow : Supervisors should take work reports even in start 15
days of manufacturing after every 3 hours and balance
the operators then if required.
Give targets to operators and offer money reward to
whom who do more than the target once in a week.
I gave the problems and solutions to production manager
and to production planning control department and they
approved this ,but made changes in bonus scheme

This system was applied in other style of which production

was in initial stage
Findings (In 30 days of manufacturing):Reduce three days in sewing since the rate of operators
were 100 even in start days of manufacturing.
Conclusion:Almost in every garment industry they are facing the
problem of late deliveries of goods . By reducing lead time
(specially in stitching department ) we save time in
particular order and can deliver few days earlier which also
saves inventory .
