DVDs on work methods 

Low production rates, higher wastages and poor quality are often a result of bad/wrong work practices adopted by the operatives on the job. The extent of savings that a mill can get is tremendous by training the operatives on the right means of work. A broad coverage of the right work practices to be followed by the operatives in various departments is made in SITRAs series Video Cassettes on Work Methods of Spinning Mills Operatives which are available in three volumes.
