1. INTRODUCTION 1. INTRODUCTION 1. 1 ABOUT THE PROJECT STUDY: Organisational functioning is an important factor for any organisation to achieve the desired goals and objectives. This requires coordination at all levels i. e, from managing partners to the layman for the smooth functioning of the organisation. So this report aims to understand the different functions of ROYAL CLASSIC GROUPS in relation to different departments.
The main purpose of doing an organisational study is to study the various departments of the organisation and understand the basic functions, purpose, achievements, competitors and the mission and the vision of the company and the progress. This organisational study was very efficient to get the first hand information and understand the functions of all the departments directly. The actual working of the organisation can be efficiently observed through this study.
This organisational study was a great experience because I came to know about the working of the organisation by seeing it and hearing the information directly from the concerned persons rather than just collecting the information from the websites and other related books. 1. 2 METHODS OF ORGANISATIONAL STUDY: 1. 2. 1 PRIMARY DATA: The primary data were collected from the discussions with the managerial heads of the various departments. 1. 2. 2 SECONDARY DATA: The secondary data were collected from the various websites, reports and other concerned books. 2. ABOUT THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY . ABOUT THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY Textile manufacturing is a major industry. It is based in the conversion of three types of fibre into yarn, then fabric, then textiles. These are then fabricated into clothes or other art facts. Cotton remains the most important natural fibre, so is treated in depth. There are many variable processes available at the spinning and fabric-forming stages coupled with the complexities of the finishing and colouration processes to the production of wide ranges of products. There remains a large industry that uses hand techniques to achieve the same results.
Almost all commercial textiles are produced by industrial methods. Textiles are still produced by pre-industrial processes in village communities in Asia, Africa and South America, as a artisan craft and a hobby in Europe and North America. 2. 1 PROCESSING OF COTTON Cotton is the world’s most important natural fibre.

The front or side pockets, being present in the “A-Zone” of the garment can make or mark the aesthetic look of the trouser and hence the wing pocket attaching machine is of aramount importance in the connection of a good quality trouser.

Thus material handling is made easier and saves a lot of time and also provides possible staining of the garment due to multiple handling of the garment and movement between work stations. Leggers and Toppers The trousers, especially the 100% cotton trousers and more particularly the washed pieces will have inherent dead creases that are formed during the manufacturing process & drying process. It becomes difficult to remove all these creases and wrinkles in the conventional method of manual iron processing. These creases and the wrinkles need forced streaming and suction coupled with pneumatically controlled controlled pressing.
It is difficult and impossible to reach certain areas of the top side of the trousers like the front fly zone, just below the waist band and hip are with the manually handled ironed boxes and sometimes, if attempted with yield adverse results like creation of new creases and puckering or sometimes reshapes the garments as well. Therefore leggers and toppers give good ironing results by removing all the dead creases and wrinkles and also eliminate the puckering along the stitch lines. Permanent Crease Lines The latest technology from Clantex, U. K. that gives permanent crease lines to the trousers enhances its aesthetic appearance and also enables easy care of the garments.
