Industrial System for Garment Manufacturing
Industrial garment system is a system where garment is produced for mass people according to standard measurement chart. Large number of laborers and different types of machines are required for making dresses. Here, thousands of dresses are made by following an ideal body measurement where maximum of 15minutes is required to make a dress.
