GSD methodology training for PDS Group’s Industrial Engineering team in Bangladesh was recently completed.
We had 12 participants from Progress Apparel Bangladesh Ltd. – Bangladesh, Green Smart Shirts Ltd. – Bangladesh and Norlanka Manufacturing Ltd – Sri Lanka. We are delighted to announce that all have received the GSD License.
GSD Training Overview
GSD Methodology Training was completed in three phases which concluded in the months of April, June and December 2018.
Manjula Jeevananda was the GSD Project Manager at PDS Group. During the classroom session, Manjula provided the trainees with meticulous knowledge and understanding about the GSD codes. He also explained the GSD enterprise software and the theory of Predetermined Time Standard (PTS) system.
After this, the trainees were given licenses post the theory examination.
The students then moved ahead to the Production floor to understand the practical application of GSD. This is a deeply important step since it imparts the trainees with hands-on experience and a chance to use the theoretical knowledge.
Manjula explained how the GSD motion codes will be used on the floor for the derivation of Standard Time.
During the sessions, the students were asked to make the videos and take notes of the motions done by operators.
The observations were reviewed on regular intervals by Manjula at the macro, operation, features and style level.
This further lead to the identification and elimination of unproductive processes. Hence, helping PDS cut down on the Production Cost.
