The training was designed to make the participants understand their roles and responsibilities and also learn the 'Best Practices' from experts of the apparel Industry. They were enlightened that they should focus on productivity, quality and cost. It was emphasised that without applying and implementing these three aspects, one cannot contribute to the optimum utilization of the resources and growth of organization.

The focus areas at the workshop were garment classifications, measurements techniques, fundamentals of specs sheets, seam and stitches, industrial engineering basics, workflow in the apparel industry, SAM/SMV calculations, productivity and quality improvement and compliances in the factory etc.

“While this 3 days' training programme has given the impetus for supervisory staff to especially look at industrial engineering, cost saving methods and labour control and motivation. It is necessary that training is taken as a continuous process,” said Dr Darlie Koshy, DG & CEO ATDC.

J D Giri, Director, Shahi Exports Pvt. Ltd and one of the experts who conducted the workshop, said, “The industry is under immense pressure due to open-costing era and it's about time to bring greater efficiency in value creation.
