Too many different type of machine and labor are need to give the fully production of industrial garments processing methods.
2.One or two person are need to make a dress2.Too many labor, machine, and a large management team is required to continue the production of industrial garments manufacturing process.
3.A few hours need to make a dress3.Approximately 1 or 1.5 minutes is needs to make a dress.
4.Selected dress is made for selected person’s won body shape.4.Garments manufacturing industry take an ideal body measurement and make thousand of cloth.

9.Fabric wastage is too much.9.Fabric must be cut according to pattern so wastage of fabric is less then tailoring system.
10.Unite of garment making the risk of garments making is less.10.Thousand of garments are making at a time so the risk of garment making is high.
