Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) organized a Workshop on “Line Balancing for Increased Productivity” on September 16 in Mumbai, attended by large number of delegates representing a cross-section of personnel associated with production in Apparel industry.

Famed Mr. Roger Thomas, an international consultant from South Africa who has extensive experience of working in Apparel Production all over the world, conducted this interactive workshop.

Based on his study on congenial production environment, he has developed a unique technique known as “Roger Thomas Methods Workshop” which has immensely benefited the industry, specially the trainers.

AEPC in its endeavour to raise the productivity levels and competitiveness of the Indian Apparel Industry in the post quota era and establishing it as a leading global player in the world markets has drawn a calendar of Workshops for the month of September in many cities all over India like Ludhiana, Gurgaon, Indore, Bangalore and Chennai.

Addressing the delegates, Mr. Roger Thomas said, “The classic challenge in the management of assembly lines is to balance the assignment of work so that there are no bottlenecks in the flow. This is hard to do because it requires, first, knowing how much work is inherent in assembly; and then dividing that work appropriately among the workers."

"Line Balancing is done by the person representing a significant project thus it is very important that he is self organized and very well versed with various facets of line balancing. This is one most effective management tool for productivity enhancement. Today when Indian Apparel industry is making a mark all over the world, it is very important that it practices management techniques like Line Balancing for productivity enhancement.”
