Like most industries that adopt a reactive manufacturing strategy, the clothing industry changes only when external forces dictate that the current approach or strategy will no longer satisfy the prevailing business environment. This paper presents the Apparel Manufacturing Systems and discusses the underlying premises that support the success of Apparel Production Systems both in the formative stages and during sustained operation. A review of the known origins of manufacturing processes illustrate how the production system can be used to advantage for clothing manufacture. No single solution fits all products/tasks in fully optimizing Socio technical System (STS), given different technologies, environment and people, etc. An attempt was made in this paper to show the handy uses of diverse production system in Bangladeshi Garments Industries.
