    Diploma in Productivity & Quality Improvement Major in Lean Manufacturing

    The readymade garment sector (RMG) is the hub of the economy of Bangladesh, accounting for more than 78 percent of the country's total export earnings. It is likely that the future economic development of Bangladesh will be highly correlated with this sector's performance.

    Presently, the RMG sector faces critical operational challenges due to rising production costs and decreasing product prices. Consequently, efficient utilization of existing resources and workforce is paramount to improve management structure, productivity, and to help the local industry remain competitive. Better utilization of resources is closely linked with qualified management personnel, such as industrial engineers, production manager, and quality controllers.

    With this is mind, the Promotion of Social and Environmental Standards in the Industry (PSES) project of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH is going to launch a diploma course named  "Productivity and Quality Improvement, major in Lean Manufacturing" in collaboration with Bangladesh Institute of Management (BIM) to develop skilled professionals in these areas.

    The course is designed to develop the professional knowledge and skills required to:

    - implement industrial engineering tools and techniques in garments factory
    - develop production planning
    - minimize waste by integrating tools and techniques of lean manufacturing
    - control the quality according to the customer requirements

    The training program is equipped with an extraordinary pool of faculty who are practitioners with hands-on experience in lean management while holding on to academically competitive degrees. They also went through the Training of Trainers (ToT) with an aim to further develop their teaching expertise in the field of productivity and quality issues of garments sector. They also have a passion for sharing their technical knowledge and skills with those who, like them, strive for performance excellence.
