The activities of value addition to the fabric by way of wet finishes like bleaching and dyeing, finishing printing etc., are explained in a separate book.

The book deals with the purpose of each process, the activities within the process, the knowledge required to run the process, the control points and check points, the do’s and don’ts of the process, normal problems observed in the process, the responsibilities and authorities of supervisors in the process, methods of working out the expected productivity and the workloads, so that the supervisor handling that process can handle it efficiently.
