Abstract: Productivity is a key determinant of competitiveness in any newlineindustry. The major sources of productivity in an industry are men, materials, newlinemachinery, money, maintenance, method and management. The textile newlineindustry is a very important sector after agriculture in India. Nearly 3400 newlinetextile fabric processing units and their chemical allied industries are newlinefunctioning in Erode, Tirupur and Karur districts of Tamil Nadu, South India. newlineIn this region, nearly 1250 industries could not function efficiently till 2006 newlinenot because of the government s stringent pollution and environmental norms newlinebut due to poor utilization of resources, poor maintenance, improper newlineproduction planning etc. These drawbacks resulted in their inability to newlinemeasure, manage, maintain and evaluate the resources available in textile and newlinefabric industries. The present research work focuses on designing the robust newlineframework by identifying and implementing the solution tools of the risk newlinedimensions which affect the productivity in textile fabric processing newlineindustries. In most of the papers studied under the literature review, newlineproductivity along with the quality of products or services has been discussed. newlineThe present work focuses mostly on papers relating to the productivity and a newlinefew papers also relating to quality have been considered, studied and newlinereviewed. In productivity related literature analysis, the majority of papers are newlinerelated to manufacturing, healthcare and banking sectors. However, newlineproductivity analyses in the declining textile fabric industries are still a newlinerelatively new topic for research. The literature review has proved that fuzzy newlinelinguistic assessment and evaluation are better than crisp value of human newlinethinking. A fuzzy Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) with productivity newlineMeasurement, Evaluation, Planning and Improvement (MERI) for enhancing newlineproductivity is very rarely found. Based on the literature review, newline
