FAL established the Industrial Engineering Department right from the inception of its operations. Efficiency of all production departments are closely monitored and remedial actions are being taken by Industrial Engineers exclusively trained for garment production.
IE department uses the software “RunStyle-Pro” which handles many IE functions like establishing SMV, preparation of Operation Bulletins with Line Balancing, maintaining Operator Skill Matrix, Calculating Machine Requirements and preparing style change schedules. The system improves the efficiency of the IE department to provide a better service to the production units.
Forecasting the future requirements of the company, IE department has started working on “Work Simplification” activities and implementing “KAIZEN – Low cost common sense approach” as a tool to receive participation from employees and the progress is commendable.
