Introduction: Cleaner productions in textile industry is achieved by reducing water and chemicals’ consumption, saving energy, reducing production of air pollution and solid wastes, reducing toxicity and noise pollution through many solutions. The purpose of the present research was to apply Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats (SWOT) and Quality Systems Planning Matrix (QSPM) techniques in identifying and prioritizing production in raw materials’ warehouse of Yazdbaf Textile Factory.
Materials and Methods: In this research, effective internal and external factors in cleaner production were identified by providing the required information through field visit and interview with industry managers and supervisors of raw materials’ warehouse. Finally, To form matrix of internal and external factors 17 important internal factors and 7 important external factors were identified and selected respectively.Then, QSPM matrix was formed to determine the attractiveness and priority of the selected strategies by using results of internal and external factors and SWOT matrixes.
Results: According to the results, the total score of raw materials’ warehouse in Internal Factor Evaluation (IFE) matrix is equal to 2.90 which shows the good situation of warehouse than the internal factors. However, the total score in External Factor Evaluation (EFE) matrix is 2.14 and indicates the relative weak situation of warehouse than the external factors.
Conclusion: Based on the obtained results, continuity, monitor, and improvement of the general plan of qualitative control (QC) of raw materials and laboratory as well as more emphasis on quality indexes according to its importance in the production processes were selected as the most important strategies.
