Abstract: Traditionally, inspectors are used to record manually the defect findings during garment inspection[1]. They experience the fact that the inspection process is time-consuming and also writing mistakes such as wrong spelling of defects and improper descriptions usually occurred. The present paper suggests a bar code scanning system of recording defects using a scanner and bar codes. As defect recording is very important in the inspection, it is believed that the efficiency and accuracy of inspection can be enhanced after applying the bar code scanning system. Bar codes appeared in the form of common defect names, size and number were created. Having designed a pre-defined worksheet, the defect recording was made by scanning the corresponding defect bar codes. During garment inspection, all the defect data were input so that the number of defects could be accumulated automatically. A summarised inspection report was generated at the end of inspection. According to the trial runs of the bar code scanning system, it was evident that there was a considerable improvement on the accuracy and efficiency of defect recording. In view of the overall trial results, it is anticipated that there are still more rooms for improvement in spite of the existing limitations of defect bar codes both in types and descriptions.
