Waste Reduction Model in a Small Clothing Company-Umbrella Model

Producción científica: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulorevisión exhaustiva


Excess waste problem is encountered by small and medium-sized
companies in the textile and clothing sector, which has a negative impact on the
profitability of these companies. Herein, a diagnosis analysis is performed in a
small company using the Ishikawa diagram to identify the root causes and they are
measured using indicators. Based on these results, a change management model is
proposed, which supports the implementation of lean manufacturing tools and
production system components during the 30-day pilot application. Then, each
indicator is reassessed to verify the feasibility of the proposed umbrella model.
Results show that this model reduced the amount of waste by 81.21%.
