Analysis of the sewing time in a clothing industry



The time in the clothing industry is the most important element for the organization of work and for the company's gain. This study had objective to determine an equation to calculate the time of sewing in a clothing industry. The experimental method is used to find a better approach for the study. The software “TOP CHRONO VR3” used to performing tests. Then the analysis of results was doing by Minitab Software. The method of timing and the method of General Sewing Data are using to compare the model suggested on the practical plan. The found model is statistically significant (p value=0), representative (R²=96%) and validated according to the predictor Fisher test. The practice validation of the model is made in two industries of clothing and the model suggested is validated for articles intended for technical uses and articles for clothing. The gaps between the used methods varies between “-0.22 %” and “4.3 %”, therefore this model is practically validated for the studied articles.
