How to improve production efficiency of garment factory? Production efficiency is an important attribute of garment manufacturing enterprises. For the problems affecting production efficiency, we should pay attention to and avoid them, and actively coordinate resources, so that enterprises can run orderly and improve production efficiency.

Factors Affecting Production Efficiency

  • Frequent changes in product processing technology

The product processing technology standards should not change for a period of time. The standards should be simple, convenient and easy to understand. The information that employees can use easily is an important factor in maintaining product efficiency and quality stability. Especially in the form of assembly line operation, it is necessary to divide a post into several tiny actions, reduce the probability of error, and improve the overall level of performance.

  • The quality of the production process is unstable, and rework or repair occurs frequently

The stability of the production system is a necessary condition to ensure efficiency.

  • There are too many emergency orders or temporary orders, and the production plan changes frequently

There are too many temporary production orders, which will have different degrees of impact on “human, machine, material and method”.

  • Machine failure in production workshop, long maintenance time

Equipment failure during the production period will result in damage to the processing schedule, which in turn will affect the overall plan implementation efficiency. The daily maintenance of equipment is indispensable. The equipment for daily, weekly, monthly, and annual inspections should be readily available to pave the way for the overall processing schedule.

  • The order has only the delivery date and the processing start date is not set
  • The purchase material plan and the production plan cannot be coordinated and synchronized
  • The purchase of materials is often delayed and the quality is often poor
  • The production department did not conduct a comprehensive capacity analysis

The company’s standard production capacity is a yardstick for evaluating its own processing capacity. Normal evaluation of its product output capacity can promote “quality, cost and delivery time”. On the contrary, too low and too high evaluation of its processing capacity can only be counterproductive. If it is too high, it will cause the shortage of its own products, delay the delivery date and affect the overall production order plan.

The lean method can shorten the delivery time, reduce the waste, and make the quality, yield and efficiency to a new level.
