Teamworking in Clothing Industry Manufacture

The papers listed below are an expression of the many issues raised by teamworking in garment assembly.  Some of these papers have resulted from funded research projects, others from collaboration with other teamworking specialists, and still others have emerged from the need to develop resources for teaching and industrial training.
