Vijetha Textiles was established by Anup Joshi (Anup), a textile engineer, a year ago. It manufactures T-shirts. The manufacturing of a T-shirt involves various stages like dyeing, cutting, design printing, stitching, checking of quality, ironing and finally packing. The process takes a stipulated amount of time at each stage. However, being a startup the processes of the company are not yet stabilised and the output of the company is ineffective and inefficient. The process gets stuck up at some stages and is slowing down the whole process of manufacture. As Anup is apprehensive that the slow process may bring in losses, he is considering as how to improvise the company’s processes to be effective and efficient. The case study tries to analyse the process of Vijetha Textiles and helps students to design a process that will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the company’s processes, which in turn will help in increasing its productivity.
