To perform this study we take help of the tools of TQM such as Flow chart, Check sheet, Histogram, Pareto Chart, Scatter Diagram, Control Chart, Cause and effect diagram from various garment industries of Bangladesh to analyse collected data which were collected through observation method and it is found that a significant amount of rework and scrape per style, per month has minimized by applying this method.
