2019 CCTC Best Practice Study Tour

2nd Half of 2019

One of the CCTC’s key strategic objectives is to advance its members’ understanding of how digital technology can be applied to the local apparel industry and used to support the implementation of Lean management systems. This was the theme of last year’s CCTC Best Practice Tour to KZN held on October 2-3. The 2018 tour provided an excellent opportunity to learn from some exceptional firms in both the automotive and clothing sectors. It comprised three firm visits over two days, including a mix of workshops, presentations and factory walkthroughs.

The 2019 tour will once again provide participating firms with cross-industry exposure and accelerated learning on a specific chosen theme highly relevant to the South African CTFL manufacturing sector.

Further details to follow.
