Automation and import policies and the textile industry
This paper deals with the impacts of import policies and automation on the textile industry. The methodology employed uses the tools of dynamic system analysis. A preliminary mathematical model of the textile industry incorporating dynamic interactions within the industry has been formulated. The model is simulated on a digital computer using textile industry data of the last ten years. Sensitivity analysis of the model to a variety of automation and import policy options has been conducted. Typical results from these simulations are included in the paper.
