Li & Fung Limited, renowned global trading house, is supporting its Indian vendors through technical training and effective production system like Lean Manufacturing concept. Recently such programs were executed at Delhi-NCR based leading export houses. Technical experts from Li & Fung India’s Bangalore office and Hong Kong, trained production team members, supervisors and operators of the apparel manufacturing units.
Interestingly, the company is using gadgets with specific software to provide training on above-mentioned subjects and the initiative is expected to boost the efficiency of apparel shop floor and play a key role in increasing apparel sourcing capabilities of Li & Fung as it is associated with renowned apparel exporters of India.
One of the managers of Li & Fung Limited who trained export houses’ teams told Apparel Resource on the condition of anonymity, “Wherever required, we tried to change mindset as well as the way of working be it line balancing, work in progress (WIP), right first time, root cause analysis or waste minimization.”
A production manager of an NCR- based export house whose team got trained, informed, “Earlier our checker use to submit a manual report but now after this training and with the use of gadget (Tab) now report is online and action can be taken immediately on this report. It will give the effective result as far as alteration or rejection is concerned.”
Though these factories are already using the best production practices but the training focused on various areas of improvement as well as minute things, besides emphasizing on energy saving.
