In these times of rising costs, increasing competition, and falling
sales prices in the garment industry, it is of particular importance that
productivity is maximized at the highest degree of economic efficiency.
Even ultramodernized plants by themselves offer no guarantee for continuing
competitiveness, unless the necessary production costs are thoroughly anaylzed,
evaluated and reduced to an absolute minimum.
For this reason, we are convinced that you will be interested in a computer
program that is already in use in over 700 clothing production plants in
32 countries all over the world.
This program, known world over as G.S.D.®, allows you
to analyze and plan every single operation in the sewing of a garment,
whether it be a machine or a manual operation. It permits you to cost your
productsts, with a high level of accuracy, prior to the start of the production
Auxiliary modules facilitate the evaluation of the cutting room as well
as production planning, ticket printing and operator training.
Results from previous installations of this program in Germany, Austria
and Switzerland clearly show that productivity was increased on average
by 11%, in some cases, by as much as 24% at the factory level, and over
100% on individual operations.
There exists a belief in the industry that production costs can be effectively
reduced by building faster and faster sewing machines. That this is not
true can be easily seen if one considers the outcome of such speed increases.
||The adjacent graph, shows the results of sewing 5 cm, 10 cm,
20 cm and 30 cm long straight seam at different machine speeds. It is clear
that increases in machine speeds above 5000 RPM have minute effects on
the actual sewing times.
In addition, when one considers that only 20% - 30% of the time of an
average operation is actual sewing machine time, while 70% - 80% is handling
time, the small gains from increasing machine sewing times themselves are
trivial compared with the expense of the Super-Sewing-Machines.
We offer you a tool that is able to deal with all parts of the production
process, especially that part that involving manual operations. You will
be able to analyze, change, compare and cost different variations of production
methods in minutes, without the use of antiquated means such as stopwatches
and performance ratings.
G.S.D.® is not just another Time Measurement system.
Whereas Time Measurement systems use your timed production sequences for
an operation, G.S.D. uses independent, tested, synthetic time standards
and is open to any changes in method, machine or material you may wish
to make. The best way to stay competitive in today's market is to improve
G.S.D.® was tested independently by academic and industrial
institutions on three continents and was found accurate to ±5% in
95% of the cases tested.
Let us make a simple calculation.
In a production facility employing 100 workers with an average cost
of US$ 0.15 a minute, if you can save just 1.5 minutes (5%) in the production
of a garment taking 30 minutes to produce, your savings amount to:
100 x 480 x 0.15 x 1.5
||US$ 360.00 per day
US$ 8,640.00 per month.
Or you can reduce the production price of your product from
US$ 4.50 to US$ 4.28.
Or you can produce 5% more garments a day with the same labor force
(1680 garments instead of 1600).
Try this calculation with your own production figures.

increase your production capability, please contact us.
