In textiles, bundles are assembled pieces organized by type, color and number. There are three basic organization systems that manufacturers use most frequently: item, group and progressive.

Bundling Types

Item bundles group the parts of a garment together. Group bundles send several garments to one person or group who assembles them. Progressive bundles are pieces of each section of the clothing item (like a leg or a sleeve) grouped together and given to one person. Others sew together other parts of the garment, and the final pieces are assembled at the end of the process.

Advantages of Progressive Bundling

The big advantage of progressive bundling is that it allows individuals to specialize in one part of the garment. As people specialize in their particular portion of the job, it speeds up the entire process.

Disadvantages of Progressive Bundling

As on any assembly line, slow or inefficient workers can cause production delays down the line. Equipment failures and absent workers can also slow production for the entire operation.
