There is strong competition on the market for ready-made garment products, which are an important part of world trade. In this sector the technology development and research facilities have an important place because the quality and technology are a priority. In our country, Turkey, many manufacturers tend to favour valued and profitable products instead of usual, low-priced and low -valued products. In this situation, new technologies must be used. But the usage of such technology may not be suitable for every company. The sewing automat is a kind of system group that can perform any kind of sewing operation by itself. These kinds of complex machines need fewer but more skilful workers to operate them. A decrease in order quantities, rapidly changing product and production types are necessary for the workers to adapt to these changes [4]. In this paper the increase of production quantity without changing quality was researched. For this purpose, an ideal production method was proposed, with the comparison of classical sewing machines and sewing automats from the point of view of production methods.
