  • Factory - This specifies the details of the location and other relevant details of the factory. 


  • Zones- Zones are the designated areas within a factory. For example, Bra zone, Pant zone, etc.


  • Sections - These can be defined as the specific areas of the factory to better manage the sewing lines.Multiple sections can exist in a particular zone.

For example, Training pool, idle pool, etc.
