The role and steps, which are carried out by PPC (Production Planning & Control) for a specific order in Garment Manufacturing Industry.
Explain each step that is followed by PPC Department from beginning to the completion of the order. During the planning please consider the followings details:
Garment type • Select any specific garment (prefer the basic garment e.g. Polo shirt, 5-pocket jeans etc).
• Calculation for the consumption of raw material depends on the selection of garment.
• In order to make the costing sheet, please visit the market for price quotation.
Total order quantity 20000

I selected a knit T. shirt for this project.

Order other materials such as buttons, grommets and zippers prior to the production. These fundamentals are often ignored but they are vital in the production of a garment.
Setting up Contractors
Meet up sewing contractor before the beginning of the time period needed for production completion. Make a contract with sewing contractor stating sewing prices, turnaround time and the list of what contractor is responsible for providing and what you are responsible for. Make sure to have deadlines for all these essentials.

• Pattern Making
All these processes are planned according to the shipment schedule but the planning section always forces to all the departments to finish all the work within the...
