Getting better quality shade within lead time is desired for dyeing industries. The aim of this study focuses on the Right First Time (RFT) implementation in a textile knit dyeing industry. This concept means that at each dyeing the target shade must be achieved the first time, hence not requiring re-dyeing or re-correction shade by adding dyes/chemical. We are going to proof that Re-dyeing or topping happen during dyeing due to neglect of stuff but most of the case re-dyeing happens for critical shade (for example turquoise shade) which shows loss of profit. In this study, RFT implementation carried out in case of dyeing of single jersey knitted fabric with turquoise shade by conventional knit dyeing process and emphasis on some vital points for the achievement of RFT where different actions were taken place rather than following of regular dyeing process. According to the CMC (color matching cabinet) report the shade of the RFT sample was very closer to buyer approved sample while the regular sample failed to meet the buyer requirement. Other relevant quality parameters (wash fastness, rubbing fastness and bursting strength) of the regular sample and RFT sample were also checked. RFT sample showed the proper quality in shade fulfilling buyer requirement with the designated time and the key points for ensuring RFT in textile dyeing industry were also analyzed.
