Store Dept: Raw material quality is the first step to ensure the quality of the product. But the raw material purchased from the good suppliers not ensures the quality. For that solution we need to control the quality according to the buyers’ specification we need to emphasis to the quality of purchased raw material by the quality inspection. For the good production flow, the company deviled sousing. Finishing trims and accessories into different places which are obviously the good idea for maintaining or supplying the products. Those are calledAccording to the buyers’ zone1. EUROTEN buyers’ store 2. U.S.A buyers’ zone In SQ Group (CML). we have visited in two different stores. The stores are1. Fabric stores 2. Trim and accessories store Fabric Store: It is a store where the fabric was kept up according the buyer mains and order. The main function of this store is to inspect the fabric and send it to the cutting according to cutting requirement. In SQ Group (CML) I found that they have followed 4 point system for fabric inspection. The inspection sequences for fabric inspection SQ Group (CML) are as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Collect the fabric from the suppliers. Prepare general defective swatch board for all fabric. Select the sample size randomly from the lot. Mark the defects. Inspect for the sample according to 4 point system. Report to the quality control personnel.

1. Collect the fabric from the suppliers: According to the purchase order sheet the store in charge receive the fabric to color, shade and quantity. 2. Prepare the general defective swatch: Common defects that can arise during inspection are prepared earlier as swatch, which is hanged on the wall. Those defective swatches are helped for identify the defect to the responsible persons. 3. Sample size selection: The sample is 10% of total lot and it is selected randomly. The points that are considered during selections are1. Color 2. Quality 3. Construction If the quality does not exceed the acceptance quality level they will go for another 10% inspection. If it also misses the accepted quality they will go for 100% inspection. 4. Mark the defects: Often inspectors are given the responsibility if inspecting garments without adequate training in fabric and their causes. The ultimate solution, of course, is to provide actual examples or photographs of both major and minor defects. The quality control manager can provide this list to inspectors as a particular tool for achieving uniform inspector inspection decision. Major defects: A defect that, it conspicuous on the finished product would cause the item to be second. (A second is a garment with a conspicuous defect that affects the salability or serviceability of item.)

Minor defects: A defect that would not cause the product to be termed a second, either because severity of location. When inspecting piece goods prior to cutting it is necessary as major. Since the inspection will not know where the defect may occur or the items. Equipment Uses: 1. Light source:- For the inspection of the fabric fault we need sufficient light. The sources of light are tube light. 2. Top light: There is 1 tube light in perpendicular to the direction of the fabric and another is back light. 3. Machine: For inspection the need power driven fabric inspection machines which brand name TSSM. 4. Arrow sticker 5. Measuring tape Various Files in use: • Order Sheet • Delivery chalan Inspect the sample according to 4 point system: They apply 4 point system for fabric inspections are as follows: Size of the defects (length) 1. Up to 3” 2. 3” to 6” 3. 6” to 9” 4. Over 9”

Penalty points 1 point 2 point 3 points 4 points

Only major defects are considered for the penalty points. Major defects are classified as follows: slubs hole soil printing defect other fabric defects Lacking existing in the fabric inspection:

shading dye defect

1. The space of the fabric inspection is not enough to ensure the quality. 2. The lighting positioning is not correctly maintained. 3. The light power is not enough to ensure or specified the defects. 4. All important points are not identified to the swatch board or no list can used in the comfortable. 5. Bowing and skewing are ignored during the inspection. 6. The RPM of the inspection m/c are not better during inspection. Suggestions against the fabric inspection: 1. 2. 3. 4.

The place should be increased with proper lightings. All the important defects should be specified in the inspection room. The RPM of the m/c must be adjusted according fabric and defects. Skewing and bowing should be considered during fabric inspection

Lacking of the fabric storage: 1. Storing/placing one by one not good or correct for that any types of permanent 2. effect can be happen to the fabric. 3. The segmentation of buyer wise block is not maintained perfectly. 4. No use of order/color/shade wise demarcation and racking system. For that any mistake can be occurred. 5. The ventilation system for ensures the quality is not maintained for that present ordered fabric condition and the excess or extra fabric can be damage without any trace. The suggestions against the fabric storing: 1. The fabric lot should be stored with crossly one another. 2. The fabric should be segmented with the demarcation and shade wise for the order basis. 3. The ventilation system should be increased to maintain the temperature. 4. The racks can be used for the fabric storing Trims and accessories store: It is a small store where trim and accessories are arranged in the rack according to buyer wise. The main function of this store is to prepare or an inventory report compared with purchase order and input packing goods. They also prepare an accessories swatch board to get approved from buyer.

In inspection sequence those maintained by SQ Group (CML) are as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Compare with purchase order specification. Select the sample size. Categories the defective accessories from each product. Compare the defective accessories with the limit of AQL 2.5 Report to the quality control personnel.

Sample size: The sample size should be 10% lot of total quality. If it is rejected then they will go for another 10% of total lot. If the total quality is within 500 they check 100% of lot. Lastly if the last inspection failed then they go for the total lot inspection. Categorized defective accessories: They usually check individual product separately. 1. 2. 3.

Sewing thread Button Price ticket

Cutting: Plan to measure, mark and cut the binding and border strips before cutting patches from the same fabric. Cut larger patches before smaller ones. For best use of fabric, arrange patches with cutting lines close or touching.

Patches for hand piecing require precisely marked seam lines. To mark the patches, place the template face down on the wrong side of the fabric and draw around it

accurately with a sharp pencil. Leave approximately 1/2" between the patches for seam allowances. After marking, cut outward from the seam line 1/4", measuring the distance by eye. For machine piecing, accurate cutting of the patches is very important. Place template face down on the wrong side of the fabric and mark the cutting line Reverse (r) templates for both hand and machine piecing should be placed face up on the wrong side of the fabric. Templates for appliqué do not include turn-under allowances. Place the template face up on the right side of fabric (face down on right side for a reverse patch); draw around it with a pencil. Cut out each appliqué patch about 3/16" from the penciled line Grainline: One or more straight sides of the patch should follow the lengthwise or crosswise grain of fabric, especially the sides that will be on the

outside edges of the quilt block. We indicate lengthwise or crosswise grain with an arrow on the pattern piece.

BOILER: Ciever Brooks Boiler 10 Ton/Hr Water treatment plant There are two deep tubeweel by the two side of the treatment plant. There are also two submersible pumps in the deep tubeweel one is 100 ft deep and another is 140 ft deep. The submersible pump transfer raw water in the water tank by creates force. The formation of oxidation of the water by showering with the help of another two pumps in the water tank. Iron content removes by the oxidation. Two circular transfer raw water in the (vessel no 1) Multigrade filter unit. The large size plastic, iron that means solid content are removed in the multigrade filter unit. The water is transferred in to the (vessel no 2) Activated carbon filter unit. In the (vessel no 2) Activated carbon unit to remove chlorine that means bad smell. The water then transfer in to the (vessel no 3) softener unit from the activated carbon unit at the presence of cationic resin (Zeolite) is reacted with water to remove the hardness of water. The water is transferred in to the reserve tank from the softener unit. The soft water is supplied from the reserve tank by the 7 Boosting pump in the different section of the factory. The back wash & regeneration process: The back wash process to clean the vessel no 1, 2 , & 3 . The back wash process should be done after 8 -12 hrs .After 40-48 hrs later the regeneration process should be done. It should be done after back wash process. After back wash the common salt dissolved with water in to the STT (salt saturated tank) the solution of common salt is ringing the resin by the injector. The use of 18% salt in the total solution. (Suppose, 5000 lit of solution the amount of salt 600 kg). The resin is activated by the salt rising. Here used cationic resin (NaHSO3). If the pH of the water increase or decrease it should be control by the dosing chemical (Sodium Hypochlorite) from the chemical tank. Details on ETP: Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) is a plant by which waste water is treated in order to make the waste water environmental friendly. Effluent Treatment makes sure that water releases meet Bangladesh Environmental Association water quality standard. It is very important and essential to keep the environment pollution free. Now a day ETP is the most important term to set a textile industry. Government, Environmental Association and foreign buyers are

creating pressure to set ETP in every textile industry .So to ensure the proper growth of textile sector and pollution free environment every textile industries have to set up an ETP. There are three effluent treatment plants which are:   1.

Physico-chemical treatment plant Chemical-biological plant Biological treatment plant

Chemical treatment plant:In this process effluent water are mainly converted into sludge of metal complex by chemical reaction. Then it is separated from the water and dried and dipped into the soil. But the sludge remain activate which is harmful. Effluent → hazardous)


Sludge of metal complex → Dry sludge → Dipped into soil (Activated

Biological treatment plant:This process is mainly build up by using micro-organism. This is Bacteria, Amoeba, and Protozoa. Bacteria are two types, one is Anaerobic& Aerobic. First one is hazardous for our environment and second one is friendly for our environment. In here Bacteria break the bond of harmful chemical by enzyme secretion. As a result harmful chemical converted into environmental friendly. The sludge produces by this process is also used as different functions such as fertilizer, fuel in the brick field.

Micro organism is the main raw material for Biological plant: • • •

bacterial amoeba protozoa

Bacteria: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Bacilli Cocci Beggiatoa Spirillum Vitereoeilla

Protozoa:  Paramecium caudatum  Euplotes  Colpidium Amoeba:  Rotifiers  Cillities  Novcotidia

Remarks: As the biggest project the SQ GROUP (Color master Limited) so the vast utility systems. There is a skill manpower group of engineers and other technical staffs to look after these utility services.

Conclusion The industrial training gives me the first opportunity to work in mills. It was and experience of normal academic learning. 40 days long training gave me actual picture about man, m/cs, money, material, method and market and interdependence. I have Learned the direct practical knowledge about the raw materials, actual running condition of the m/cs, works of technologist, administration. SQ GROUP (color master Limited) is a 100% export oriented industry. The Whole factory building contains 4 sections, such as Sweater knitting, Yarn dyeing, finishing and garments dyeing. The machinery of this industry is most modern which can be produced quality knit goods. The mill is a well planned mill with enough expansion facilities. Their exist a wonderful employer and worker relation. Working environment for the labors is also good. This mill does not follow the routine maintenance schedule of international standard. So I think that installation of raw materials quality control section will must. The Sample fabric inspection section is also so improved. During our training I visited administration section, godown, store, boiler house, generator room etc. Everywhere I got cordial response from the employees. Above all this training for 40 days in the SQ GROUP (color master Limited )has given me a new experience for practical life.
