Abstract or Summary
  • A study of the apparel industry in the State of Washington was accomplished through the use of a questionnaire which yielded data concerning the types of automated and mechanized equipment used during three time periods. Descriptive information about the apparel industry in this state was gathered in order to analyze the former data. The apparel industry in the State of Washington produces primarily skiwear, general outerwear and down products. Other types of apparel are also produced, but on a smaller scale. The factors which were related to the increase in mechanization and automation were the size of the firm, the class of products made and whether the plant was part of a multi-plant firm or was a single-plant firm. No appreciable relationship was found between the degree of mechanization and automation and the age of the firm, the age of the plant or quality level of the product. Automation and mechanization are generally seen by manufacturers as possible "solutions" to many of the problems which plague the apparel industry.
