Program Received from Buyer:
First step of proto sample development is program receive from buyer. Buyer gives us a tech pack to develop a proto sample. We collect all the details from buyer regarding development program.

Personal Stud y on Tech Pack
After receiving program we have to study on it. Because of to check whether we are capable to develop a proto sample, to check how much requirement of buyer and how much we have.

Meeting with Internal Team
After case study on tech pack then arrange a meeting with internal team who involved in this development program. In this meeting to discussed how much important this program and what is the dead line also discussed we are capable or not for this program.

Advice for pattern Making

If buyer wants any washing in sample we have to apply it.

Finishing and QC
After washing we will get a complete garment which is treated with steam ironing & also several finishing processes are done for example extra loose thread cutting etc.

Tagging
Tagging is very important in proto sample development program because if we do not keep tagging against each style it is possible to mix with other style.
