Bundle Ticket Design
Off Loading
Bundle ticket also known as work or pay control
Originates in either cutting department or the
pay-roll department
Used for pay control as well as production
control process
Can be used for unit flow as well as bundle flow
production systems

Two major divisions:
1. Returned to payroll control by production supervisory staff
2. Collected on the pay-cards submitted by the operators

* Is perforated in sections and sub-sections according to the
total number of sub assembly and assembly lines as well as
the number of jobs in them.

* Thus two divisions are formed out of the bundle ticket :
1. Supervisory division
2. Sub-section which each operator takes

1. Each of the supervisory division contains:
a) Serial number of the entire bundle ticket
b) The name of the sub-section, such as sleeve, collar, front, etc.
c) Style name or number
d) Cutting order number or spreading ticket number (move
ticket number)
e) The date the bundle was compiled in the cutting department
f) Size, amount, color of the bundle
g) Name of each job in the section and the number of the
operator who did the job, next to each job name, also the
date the operation was completed.
h) The signature of the supervisor or checker for the production
section covered by the ticket section.
2. Each of the operators sub-section contains:
a) Name of the job
b) Bundle ticket number
c) The amount, size and color of the bundle
d) The price of job
e) The style name or number
f) The move ticket number controlling the bundle (or the cutting
ticket number)

There should be only one copy of each bundle ticket (with
the same bundle ticket serial number), otherwise it would
be impossible to prevent payment twice for a given task.
Off loading is the process of removing cut parts
from the cutting table, counting, ticketing, and
grouping them.

Cut parts are considered work-in-progress
inventory and are counted and tracked through the
rest of the production processes.

This is usually done through bundle tickets that
originate with cutting orders.
The purpose of bundle tickets is to:

a) Monitor the progress of each specific garment,
b) Ensure that the correct parts are assembled together,
c) Compensate operators for their work on each garment.

Cut part identification involves identifying and marking parts
for further operations.

Throughout the sewing process, it is essential that each
garment be assembled from parts that have been cut from the
same ply of fabric, which is ensured by shade marking each
piece in the lay.

Every piece is ticketed with a style number, size, and ply

Shade marking is done prior to bundling.

Fusing applications of interlinings are frequently done as
part of preproduction operations.

This involves separating and laying out cut garment parts,
positioning cut interlining parts on the appropriate parts,
fusing the required parts, and recombining parts for

Garment parts are grouped and bundled for the specific
production system to be used. Bundle tickets are attached,
and the parts are ready to be moved to the sewing
Works best for the work station layout which permits the
bundler to sort with
a) A motion pattern devoid of backtrack or criss-cross
b) Minimum distance from stack to stack

* Manner of folding or superposing the plies in the bundles
should be such that there is
a) Minimum or no creasing
b) Minimum or no disarraying of the cut alignment

Tier stack bins (or boxes) on casters- excellent means for
bundling and transporting cut sections without the necessity
of bundle tying.

The sorted stack should be packed between two plies of
masonite or appropriate cardboard.

Perfect quality and securement can be had by
a) Making the bundle board slightly larger than the pattern area
b) Securing the sides of the board with outside latches
Cutting Instruction Issue
Fabric Control Charts
The details of individual batches are entered on a cutting instruction,
which authorises the issue of fabric and provides essential information
for spreading and cutting.

It is to be ensured that the materials are efficiently used.

The fabric reconciliation record provides a comparison of actual usage,
and reports variances.

This forms the link between cutting room activities and financial
control projections.

And, as materials comprise approximately 40% of manufacturing costs,
should be regarded as vitally important.
Cutting Instruction
The cutting instruction is the main documentary output of
the cut order planning process. It is known by a variety of
names in industry:
The cutting order, the cutting sheet, the lay sheet, etc.

The cutting instruction must have the following information:
1. The fabric to be processed;
2. The marker to be used;
3. The number of plies authorized (or equivalent).

Example format for the cutting instruction
The details of the cutting instruction as taken from the cut order plan are as follows.

Style number

Marker number

Cutting instruction number

Date issued

Marker length

Measured lay length

Fabric to be cut

Garments to be cut

Cutting Instruction Record
In a manual management information system, the issue and
progress of cutting instructions are recorded in a cutting
instruction record.
The cutting instruction record is designed to assist control. It
enables the manager to know:

1. What work is in progress in the cutting room.
2. What work is overdue and needs progressing. Comparisons
between issue dates and completion dates provide information
on throughout times.
3. Weekly production data for updating other documents.

The spreading audit investigates all aspects of
material usage and assesses the control being
exercised in the various processes.
1. Lay Details

2. Ends Losses

3. Edge Allowance

4. Splice Allowance

5. Remnant Lengths

6. Faults Processed

7. Accounting for purchased length issued
