This project is on “Effect of Machine Stoppage On Production Efficiency Of Circular Knitting Machine” .Textile Fabric materials are used to prepare different categories and types of Fabric products in the textile industry.For machine stoppage many defect are produced and time are waste. To fulfill buyer delivery timeline and quality it is very important to detect, to identify and to prevent these causes from reoccurring. There are many kinds of knitting machine stoppage causes found in textile industries. This Project deals with a major problem of production loss and causes of knitting machine stoppage in knitting industry. The knitting machine has to stop when defects occurred and then faults are corrected, which results in time loss and efficiency loss. Not only that the knitted fabric may be rejected if quality requirements are not met. n effective monitoring is required to avoid defects and to avoid productivity and quality losses. The study identifies two main categories of defects (average time required for correcting defects and machine down time) are responsible for reducing productivity. The thesis reflects that due to yarn breakage machine stopped for seen minutes per days, for maintaining machine stopped for two hours per month, for needle breakage six minutes per day and for technical problem machine stopped for several times. In order to produce quality product and increase efficiency we should find out the causes of machine stoppage and decrease the causes as far as possible .
