Comparison of Cost and Production Between a Traditional Bundle System and a Unit Production System Installed (Downloadable Research Paper)
I was earlier complaining about not having much study materials on the net for us. Study materials like articles on various topics related to Garment Production, Technology, Did-it-Yourself Guides, Tutorials etc. Do you also think so?
Now I would say that I was wrong. Actually there are enough study materials for learning from the net. Just we need to become smart in searching in Google.
Yesterday I discovered one such valuable document (A Research Report) from Fashion Institute of Technology’s Advanced Apparel Manufacturing Technology Department (AAMTD). This research report is the result of work performed under sponsorship of the Fashion Institute of Technology and the United States Department of Defense, Defense Logistics Agency.
You can Read this research Paper. This report explains facts related to Traditional Bundle System (PBS) and Unit Production system (UPS) and Apparel Production Methods. And shows comparison of Cost and Production between PBS and UPS installation.
Comparison in Brief from the report
“A manufacturer that was using a bundle system switched over to a UPS. Data critical to an analysis of the two systems was collected prior to and after the changeover and then was critically analyzed. Analysis revealed that with the UPS installation weekly output increased by 9.6%; the number of workers decreased by 10.3%; production time per unit decreased by 17.3%; and, unit production costs decreased by 12.3%”, as reported by author of this research paper.
This report would be helpful guide for fashion students and research scholars to design their research project report.
