Description

Handbook on Fabric Manufacture deals mainly with the activities involved in manufacturing of grey fabrics, inspection of both grey and finished fabrics, presentation of samples for market, marketing and customer service activities where technical people are involved. The activities of value addition to the fabric by way of wet finishes like bleaching and dyeing, finishing printing etc., are explained in a separate book.

This book does not deal with any technology or design of the machine parts and mechanisms, but explains the methods of monitoring the activities in general. The book deals with the purpose of each process, the activities within the process, the knowledge required to run the process, the control points and check points, the do’s and don’ts of the process, normal problems observed in the process, the responsibilities and authorities of supervisors in the process, methods of working out the expected productivity and the workloads, so that the supervisor handling that process can handle it efficiently. The individuals have to study the manuals given by machinery manufacturers, and refer to the systems followed in their company and make their own manual for day to day activities. This book can be taken as a guide.
