NPO to benchmark productivity for Pakistan textiles
May '12
Pakistan's National Productivity Organization (NPO) has secured a contract for undertaking Productivity Benchmarking Study of textile subsectors including ginning, knit stitching and knit processing.

The organization won the contract in an open bid while competing with several other international organizations.

The NPO benchmarking team would execute the project in three phases, which would be completed in nine months time, NPO CEO Khawaja Muhammad Yousuf said.

The broader objective of the study is to benchmark the units in the textile subsectors with the best practices while spotting the productivity gap, recommending better methods and giving suggestions for improving working of these units.

The study would also ascertain best practices to be followed and define a “Standard/Model Unit” for comparing performance.

It would also devise a strategy for improving productivity in all subsectors at large, and specify parameters that can be applied to the units as legally binding ones.

Mr. Yousuf informed that the study would focus on the entire value chain of the identified subsectors and aid the industry in gaining self-reliance so as to facilitate increased turning of primary raw materials into value-added goods, to allow the industry to better compete in world markets while retaining its focus on enhanced productivity and quality.
