It gives us immense pleasure to announce that Star Fashion Company Ltd. (Vietnam) recently completed Phase 1 of the GSD practitioner training. The first step towards identifying their real production cost.
The training took place from May 27 to June 21, 2019, and was attended by trainees from 2 factories – Star Fashion Company Ltd, Vietnam, and Lian Feng Company Ltd, China.
During the course of training, the team achieved substantial time savings with the implementation of GSD SMV per operation.
Week 1: GSD Practitioner Theory Training
The participants learned the purpose and the application of pre-determined time standards and GSD motion codes and sequences.
Practical implementation examples, test scenarios, and exam preparation revision prepared the practitioners for the final theory and practical examinations delivered at the end of the week.
These exams are designed to measure the participant’s understanding of the GSD codes, motion sequences, and application for operation analysis.
Week 2: GSD Software training & Database Configuration
As training proceeded to its second week, the GSD Enterprise software was introduced to the participants.
This phase included operation analysis, method study and report generation training for the team.
Week 3 & 4: Application & Method Improvement (Core Style Analysis)
During weeks 3 and 4 the focus was on core style analysis, which included the guided application of GSD codes and techniques.
The participants studied an existing style through video analysis and then worked collectively to identify and implement method improvements.
The method improvement activities included enhancing the current workplace layout by incorporating the principles of ergonomics and method study. The activities also included handling improvements and sewing burst reductions.
In this phase, 26 operations were analyzed for potential method improvement. The team’s collaborative effort increased the style productivity by 14%, giving the organization an estimated profit of $45,284 per month. This profit has the potential to go up to $66,660 in 3 months after implementing the agreed methods and line re-balancing.
Congratulations to the Team!
We congratulate Nguyen Thi Khuyen, Hoang Dinh Binh, Doan Thi Cuc, Nguyen Thi Huong, Truong Thi Hoa, Do Thi Giang, Nguyen Thi Linh, Nguyen Thi Phuong, Ha Thi Thuy and He Shaofeng for successfully completing the Phase 1 of their GSD Training.
