Existing worker evaluation is related to the categorizing of operations, worker’s grading, work measurement, salary review, rewarding, promotion, growing of effectiveness, etc.
We can measure worker performance accurately by operator evaluation & assessment processing. Also, we know who needs training, whose no need. Which worker is operating which operation who is specialized in which operation or process of the Garment.
These can help to preserve & explore skill matrix data. It may be called general performance data. Today we discuss why need worker evaluation and how to apply it in garments or any type of Production house.
Especially evaluation is for existing operator study and evaluation for the new recruiting employee. But we do not vary the terms because we need it.
Key Benefits of operator evaluation

Evaluation of a sewing operator:
In the interview on the workstation, the work-study officer or Industrial Engineer collects the worker’s educational qualification, job duration, present operation, others operation and which machine he/she can operate. Then IE will observe the worker’s cycle times & calculate productivity/capacity/efficiency & making a new work profile of the operator.
Collect the other skills data:
In the collection of other skills we have to know How many operations he/she knows, how quality, how are the previous output, Achievable target, SMV target and Quality. If any other skill adds the skill in the skill evaluation area as above.
Example of Skill evaluation:
Operator grading by type of operations
An Assessment by Operation categorizing is not so hard. Basic, Medium and High category sewing operator will be selected in this grading system, where Basic, Medium and High category is perfect for completing different types of operations accordingly and how many types of machines can operate individually. Where we found the multi-skilled operators. In this case, the assessor has to concern the below points.
Skill level (proficiency) required to perform an operation,
Target & Achievement ratio
How many Critical and non-critical operations
Different types of machine can operate individually
Different types of operations in different parts of the garments.
I prepared a list to show discovering a skilled & multi-skilled operator
