Implementation of modular manufacturing in the clothing industry in KwaZulu-Natal: a case study.

By Kemlall Ramdass and Leon Pretorius

Abstract

There are many challenges facing the clothing and textile industry in the world, and South Africa is no exception. Competition from both the domestic and international markets is crippling both the clothing and textile industries. However, with a reservoir of experience and expertise within the industry, it could re-establish itself as a forceful industry with an ability to challenge competitors both domestically and internationally through a focus on added value, exceptional quality and the effective application of all resources through technological application. A text analysis has been conducted on the experiences of individuals through the implementation of modular manufacturing in a case study.Mechanical and Industrial Engineerin
