Textile is the ancient branch of engineering. Now textile engineering study is becoming more demand-able then before. Because textiles have not only used for wearing but also hugely used in different sectors like as technical textile. Many research works are being done on textile. But doing research anything it needs huge information. Books have not alternative of information. But price of every book is out of range such like us third world country’s people. For fulfillment the demand of information I will give a list of textile books. All books I have collected from my friends and fans who are studying in different famous universities around the world. I think these books will be helpful for students, researchers, businessmen, entrepreneurs as well as all people who are interested to know about textile. 

Warning: If you want to get any book from the following list then you must have to publish Article or Assignment or Project work in this blog for promoting purpose. Without these please don't send email.

In-Process Inspection in Garment Industry

In-Process Inspection in Garment Industry
Mayedul Islam

In-Process Inspection 
From the starting point of garment manufacturing up to garments ready to shipment, the inspection done is called in process inspection. At least 65 to 80% faults can be checked and controlled through in process inspection.
In-Process Inspection in Garment Industry
In-Process Inspection in Garment Industry
Benefits or results of in process inspection:
  • Reduction of major ‘surprises’ from the customers due to bad quality.
  • Decrease in labor cost due to decrease in repair rates.
In process inspection includes:

Spreading inspection or Spreading defects
  1. Not enough plies to cover the quantity of garments required.
  2. Narrow fabric or wide fabric; alignment of one side should be accurate.
  3. Plies all are not facing in the correct direction i.e. not all the plies are spread face down, face up, or face to face as required.
  4. Mismatching of checks i.e. plies not spread accurately one above another for cutting.
  5. Spreading tension to each ply should be uniform and optimum.
  6. Splicing or bowing
  7. Overlapping should be in proper length and width.
Pattern and marker making inspection or defects
  1. Pattern parts missing; correct number of parts for all sizes not included by the marker maker.
  2. Mixed parts; parts are not correctly labeled in marker, so a marriage of wrong size parts.
  3. Patterns not facing the correct direction or napped fabrics.
  4. Patterns not facing the same direction on a one way fabric.
  5. Patterns not aligned with respect to grain line of fabric. As a result garments may not drape or fit properly.
  6. Line deflections poor (e.g. chalk-too thick, indistinctly printed line, perforated lay not fully powdered), leading to inaccurate cutting.
  7. Inadequate marking; either the marker did not use outside edge of the pattern or the pattern was moved or swung after partial marking to squeeze the pattern into a smaller space in the interest of fabric economy. Alternatively, the pattern is wound around the edges and should be replaced.
  8. Adequate marking; a combination of points 7 and 8 results in components being sewn together with puckering or pleating.
  9. Marker too wide; garment parts at the edge of the lay are cut with bits missing.
  10. Not enough knife clearance freedom.
  11. Mismatched check and strips.
  12. Notches and drill makes omitted, indistinct or misplaced.
Cutting inspection or cutting defects
  1. Frayed edge; the amount of fraying depends on fabric finish and construction, improper cutting tools or blunt knives.
  2. Fuzzy; ragged or serrated edges; may come due to faulty knives edges such as burrs, chips or dullness.
  3. Ply to ply fusion; single ply whose cut yarn ends are fused to form a hard brittle rim on the cut edge.
  4. Pattern precision; misshape of the patterns perimeter as cut also top, bottom and middle plies part should be checked against the patterns.
  5. Notches; notch size should not be too large (more depth large notch).
  6. Drilling; the drill holes should be in optimum size and no fusion problem along the plies.
Sewing inspection or sewing defects
In sewing section, the in process inspection is divided into three defects by Lowe and Low Coke as sewing defects:

Sewing defects:
  • Needle damage: evidenced by holes, picked threads, ruptured threads or damage to the fabric; caused by wrong size or types of needle, blunt needle, needle heat, machine feed difficulty.
  • Skipped stitches
  • Thread breaks
  • Broken stitches
  • Seam grin
  • Seam pucker
  • Pleated seams
  • Wrong stitch density
  • Uneven stitch density
  • Staggered stitch
  • Improperly formed stitches
Seam defects:
  • Mismatched of adjacent part
  • Wrong seam or stitch type used
  • Wrong shade of thread used.
Assembly defects:
  • Finished components not correct to size or shape or not symmetrical
  • Finished garments not to size due to from incorrect patterns, inaccurate marking or cutting, shrinkage and stretching fabric, incorrect seam width.
  • Parts, components, closures or features omitted, caused by bad work flow, parts omitted in cutting, careless operator.
  • Components of features wrongly positioned or misaligned arising from incorrect marking or sewing not following the mark.
  • Interlining incorrectly positioned, twisted, too full, too light, cockling.
  • Lining too full, too tight, showing below the bottom of the garments, twisted, incorrectly pleated and so on.
  • Garments parts cockling, pleated, twisted, showing bubbles and fullness.
  • Garment parts shaded due to being mixed after cutting.
  • Parts- in one way fabric in wrong direction
  • Mismatching trimmings
Finishing inspection or finishing defects
  1. Spots/burn/melt at the time of ironing
  2. Broken button, zipper and so on.
  3. Flattened nap or surface
  4. Change in color
  5. Crease not correctly formed
  6. Garments not thoroughly dried
  7. Stretching in fabric during pressing
  8. Pocket and collar incorrectly aligned at the time of pressing and ironing.
  9. Lining showing pleats, creases, wrinkles, shines, etc.
  10. Shrinkage due to heat and moisture.
  11. Incorrectly folding
  12. Mismatched trimmings
  13. Incorrectly packing (not as per packing instruction). 


Final Inspection in Garment Industry

Final Inspection:
Final inspection consists of inspecting finished garments from the buyer’s point of view; size measurements, form fitting (putting garments on the proper size manikins to see if they properly fit labeled sizes); and live modeling if necessary (again to see if the garments properly fit the labeled sizes). Final inspection may occur before or after garments are packed in poly bags and cartons. If it is done after garments packed, then proper size and style markings on the package can also be checked.
Final Inspection in Garment Industry
Final Inspection in Garment Industry
Total Acceptable Product (TAP) & Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL)
TAP means the number of acceptable products in a lot. On the other hand, AQL means maximum acceptable capability or rejected % of products in a lot.

10,000 dozen T-Shirts have AQL of 4%. Then find out TAP of that lot.


100 dozens T-Shirts have acceptable limit = 4 dozens
1 dozen T-Shirts has acceptable limit = 4/100 dozen

10,000 dozens T-Shirts have acceptable limit = (4/100) X 10,000 dozens
                                                                       = 400 dozens


TAP = (10,000 - 400) dozens
       = 9600 dozens

Generally in garment industries, inspections are made 1%, 1.5%, 2.5%, 4%, 6.5%, 10%, etc. This depends on the buyer’s requirements.

Uses of AQL

In this system, sample is selected by random sampling technique from a lot. After proper inspection, the decision is taken whether the lot will be accepted or rejected. This is applicable for raw materials to finished products inspection as well as garments. This system is popular and used widely in the world trade.
Acceptable sampling system consists of 5 parts:
  • Lot size
  • Sample size
  • AQL
  • Accept number
  • Reject number
Customer’s choice is given priority in this system. It is the customer who decides whether the goods will be inspected at AQL of 1.5%, 2.5% or so on. They generally give preference to the major defects (such as oil mark, holes, torn, etc) i.e. which at a glance seems to be odd for use. They also give the direction on sampling technique.

In garments industry finishing is a process which consists of pressing or ironing, folding and packing of garments. Among them, by pressing we remove unwanted crease or wrinkles from garments. Again folding is done by ironing. After pressing, the process used to fold the garment in a required size and shape is called folding.

Types of Packing and Folding
There are four types of packing and folding for shirts, they are mentioned below:

1. Stand up pack
In which collar is folded and kept at 900 angles with the body.

2. Semi-stand up pack
In which collar is folded and kept at 450 angles with the body.

3. Flat pack
In which collar is folded and completely laid flattened on the body.

4. Hanger pack
In which shirt is supplied in box by hanging on a hanger.

Badda, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Work study is the systematic examination of the method of carrying activities, so as to input the effective use of resources and to setup standards and performance for the activities being carried out. It is a term that is used in garments industry as to count the work and to utilize the man, machine and materials. Work study examines both the method and duration of the work involved in the process. Now a days have great demand of work study engineer in textile and apparel industry. In this article I will discuss about requirements to become a successful work study engineer.
Working area of a work study engineer
Working area of a work study engineer
Characteristics of work study engineer:
A work study engineer need to be educated, expert, smart, confident, personal dignity and honest. Details below-

Sincerity and Honest:
The work study person must be sincere and honest only if is the case will he she gain the confidence and respect of those with whom he or she will work.

He/she must be really keen on the job, believe in the importance of what he or she is doing and be able to transmit enthusiasm to the people round about.

Tact is dealing with people comes from understanding them and not wishing to hurt their feeling by unkind or thoughtless word, even when these may be justified. Without justified no work study person is going to get very far.

Good Appearance:
The person must be neat tidy & look efficient. This will inspire confidence among the people with whom he or she has to work.

This can only come with good training and experience of applying work study successfully. The work study practitioner must be able to stand up to top management, supervisors or workers in defense of his opinion and finding, and to do so in such a way that will respect and not give offence.
