The Ministry of Textile Industry will conduct a “Productivity Benchmark Study” to evaluate the working efficiency of the entire textile value chain industry in the country.
The study will be completed within nine months and will help determine issues and challenges faced by the local textile industry, said Dr Khalid Abdullah, cotton development commissioner in the Ministry of Textile Industry.
The main aim of the study is to measure the existing work capacity of a unit, the current operation timing, and its possible output. It would help local industry operate at its full working capacity by minimising the cost of production with rational usage of valuable inputs, including raw material, energy and the labour force in the country.
