Apparel TrainingSolstice, a Dhaka-based apparel export house, has proposed the framework of training programme derived from the “Design Thinking” ideology aimed at de-stressing workers on the shopfloor to enhance efficiency.

The apparel manufacturer advocates the sequence of observation, imitation and repetition where they teach their operators to start slow, observe and imitate the process and handling methodology, slowly and repeatedly. “With accurate imitation and repetition, operators will be able to achieve excellence, as the thickening of neurons facilitates faster conduction between neurons upon more repetition,” feels Rahman Hasibur, MD, Solstice.

By re-engineering the layouts and systems, 15 per cent efficiency has been achieved; and with operators training for a week – 30 per cent efficiency enhancement has been achieved. The daily output of 45 machines has surged from 900 pieces to 1,200 pieces through these interventions.

“Garment workers are always concentrating on the needle that puts huge stress on their eyes. It is their eyes that need replenishment. I feel that the garment workers should have an ‘eye massage’ after every 2-3 hours to de-stress themselves,” adds Rahman.

Working on this principle the company is creating modules for the same at their research library. In the one-day training schedule, a 15-minute presentation is shown to the operators on the ‘eye massage’ exercise and the food they need to eat for the energy required.
