All the production processes of the Kanggye Unha Garment Factory are put on a power- and labour-saving basis.

Such successes are unthinkable apart from the dynamic drive for improving skills of its employees and innovating techniques.

According to chief engineer O Yong Chol, more than 60 percent of the employees are enrolled on online courses of central and local educational institutions including Kim Chaek University of Technology and Pyongyang Han Tok Su University of Light Industry, and its sci-tech learning space is operated in an effective way.

Last year alone, the factory introduced over 140 valuable technologies, thereby achieving 1.2-time production growth and saving much labour as compared to previously.

Among its new introductions are a forced AC contactor which helped save nearly 500 kW of electricity in a year, an artificial fur cutter which doubled the production efficiency, a cutting automation system based on a pattern arrangement program which saved six workers’ labour on a daily average while increasing production rate several times, and a digital tape cutter which automated the work previously done manually.

The network infrastructure and computer interface program which links the general control room with production sites and the daily production and financial review program which ensures a real-time command over production are also conducive to arousing workers’ enthusiasm for production and improving output.

The factory carried out last year’s economic plan at 150 percent and overfulfilled the plan for last January by 100 percent.
