- Apply Basic Industrial Engineering skills
With competition getting stiffer, garment manufacturing is viewed as a science and not an art, where a great need for Garment Engineering and work study. This course equips Designers and Technologists with the skills to develop, design and produce samples which are production oriented with the ultimate goal to maximize profit potential. It is essential for productivity improvement and guides the Production Management team to be more successful at their job. Without information of the kind produced through these techniques proper management is impossible.

- Apply Intermediate Industrial Engineering
Many manufacturers are now critically evaluating their processes to determine their effectiveness in bringing maximum value to customers. Customers are intending to shift more of their cost to the manufacturing chain that cut off the business profitability. The key to gaining the competitive advantage is to re-engineer business processes.
This course will lead the engineers and factories management through the industrial engineering functions with respect to the activities involved in capacity assessment studies, benchmarking, modeling, unit cost drivers, better understanding of the methods and time measurements I and II and how to create core data for establishing SAM value, determining the PFD and sewing allowances as per orders categories, work methods analysis and simplification, applying the simultaneous engineering approach for shorten lead time and cost reduction, feasibility and value added analysis, setting up core values driven by costing formula for monitoring Key Performance, different production set ups analysis for the most economical and practical methods, handling analysis, modular team concept and other set ups, change management, internal procedures simplification, and total changes implementation. In addition, the participant will be given a fresh approach regarding the proper methods to apply effectively for process razing and operations scanning and improving successfully introduced within the garment factories.
This unit is delivered through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on activities.

- Apparel Product Development
With growing trends of buyers asking for value added services, only factories who can offer design and product development services could compete in the global arena. It is fast becoming a pre-requisite for factories to be able to offer such services to remain in the buyers’ matrix or selected suppliers. Garment Manufacturers have to develop their own product development team to meet the buyers’ requirements. Factories that have already set up product development teams, would have got a head start to work with the buyers and designers to collaborate and better understand the buyer’s needs. It is also imperative to create the most relevant collection at the shortest time for the buyers as lead time gets shorter.
