The recent economic turmoil has led new challenges to Textiles and Clothing Industry. This has caused the industry to suffer from external problem such as the appreciation of foreign exchange currencies and domestic inflation. Meanwhile, this industry also faces internal problems, for examples, long manufacturing cycle time, resources wastage, and unsatisfactory inventory problems.

The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) cooperated with Clothing Industry Training Authority (CITA) launched the project of “Development of Problem Solving Model for Hong Kong Clothing and Textile Industry” to the industries, and gained satisfactory feedback.

The total amount of saving reported from the participant company is HK$ 3.1M. Significant improvement results were recorded, for examples, reduce scrape rate from 2% to 1.4%, shorten manufacturing cycle time from 40 days to 35 days, reduce lot change time from 5.5 hr to 3.5 hr. This seminar is going to give the participants understanding how this model can help them solve these internal problems especially for the recent economic turmoil.
