ABSTRACT
Be it in building a textile finishing plant, robotizing a process line, or replacing a mercerizer, executive practices squander millions of dollars. Firms without business goals, for example, may fritter away $10 million dollars of manufacturing effort for every $1 million dollars of profit ultimately earned. The competitive advantage is with textile firms that involve manufacturing managers in capital expenditure, staffing and profit-making decisions. Manufacturing is handicapped by focusing on schedules and direct costs before quality procedures and absorbing as much as 70 percent overhead in ill-founded standard cost accounting. After adding executive induced cost, gross margin may be halved from what it could be. Fortunately, managers in textile finishing who understand the reality behind the numbers achieve the greatest gain in cost performance when utilizing resources of people, equipment and money.
