The Process

Each previously identified garment has been scanned into the POS system. As garments are finished at the applicable work station they are moved to the CUS Order Assembly System. Running at 45 feet per minute, an operator can easily scan and load large quantities of garments onto the system. A single operator is all that is required.

  1. The operator will be asked to “log on.” This employee’s ID Number will be sent to the POS System to log the employee’s performance.
  2. By selecting the “Assemble Garments Button,” the conveyor will reference and continually run at 45 feet per minute. Speed can be increased as operator gains experience.
  3. After the conveyor is referenced, the operator will be prompted to “Scan Garment ID.”
  4. Once the first piece of an order is scanned, the customer information will appear on the screen, an invoice will be printed, and a beeping noise will sound. The operator will take the invoice and place it over the hanger; then place the garment on the conveyor within the “Load Station.”
  5. The operator will continue to scan and hang garments while the conveyor is rotating.
  6. When an order is complete, it is immediately delivered to one of the four drop stations with the invoice attached to the first piece.
  7. If a second order is completed while the first order is being dropped, it will be deposited on the second drop station. As orders are completed, a maximum of four orders can be dropped from the conveyor per revolution of the machine. The completed orders are delivered from the conveyor to a holding rail.
  8. On the holding rail, all pieces from the order are deposited with additional orders being sequentially dropped until the rail is full.
  9. Completed orders can be removed and taken to a bagging or tie-out station.
