Languages of publication
Denim industry is one of the emerging sectors in the world among all woven garments industry. The rapid changing monetary conditions like as global challenge, declining overall revenue, client interest for high quality item, variety of product and diminished lead–time and so on had a crucial impact on manufacturing plants. The interest for higher incentive at lower cost is expanding and to endure, clothing makers need to enhance their operation through-delivering right first-time quality and reduction of waste or reworks. Defects are the main concern in quality assurance of denim garments. Most of the defects are visualize in denim washing. This research emphasizes the cause effect and remedy of washing defects of denim garments. This research initiated by collecting quality inspected data of consecutive three months for the Whisker and Hand Brush process to have an overview of the defects of the washing plant and then analyzed the root causes and effects of the defects to provide a recommended solution both for Whisker and Hand Brush process on which standard operating procedure (SOP) is introduced to reduce the level of defects. After ensuring the standard operating procedure both for dry and wet process, quality inspected data was recorded for the following three months for Whisker and Hand Brush process. Finally, a significant level of defects is reduced in Whisker and Hand Brush process.
