How and why employee evaluation in Production

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

  1. To prepare Skill Matrix
  2. Training needs
  3. Manpower requirements

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.

Employee evaluation

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:
worker 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
Now, this is an example of 5 Pkt Basic Denim Pant grading. This categorization can help you to a better understanding of the above topics. A list of 5 Pocket manufacturing processes has shown in the below table according to A, B and C grade operations.
Basic operations (C)
Medium grade operations (B)
High-grade operations (A)
Coin Pocket/Attach Mouth Rolling
Patch Pocket 2nd Stc
Back Patch Pocket Attach
Loop making
Loop Tack (Join)
Loop B/T together Loop Attaching
Front Rise Tack
Front Rise Top/stc
Front Rise Top stc (DN)
Front pkt Opening Tack
Front Pocket Mouth Make (S/N)
Front Pkt Mouth Tops Stc (D/n)
Waist Gathering Stc
W/band Attach (S/N)
W/B setting by folder (K/S)
Front Part Bartack
Body Bartack
Bottom Hemming
Side Busted Seam O/L
Side seam Top stc (FOA)
Side seam Join By Folder (FOA)
An operator who is expert in 2 or more High-grade operations & 2 Medium grade operations and operate 2 or 3 types M/C, he/she is the High-Grade operator.
The operator who can complete 1 or more high-grade operations with achieving the efficiency level, 2 medium grade operations and  2 basic operations andWho has to operate 1 or above the type sewing machine. he/she is a Medium Grade operator.
The operator who can complete 1 medium grade operation, 2 basic operations and operating 1 or 2 type machine he/she is Basic Grade operator.
So, Not only ‘work’ study, but also have to do ‘worker’ study. The worker is the key to produces, without workers, a factory can’t think to run a wheel with profit.
