Bale management is the judicious selection of cotton bales in the laydown in order to obtain consistent quality as well as economic spinning performance.

The categorization is done on the basis of different fiber properties. Here it is done on the basis of Mic and chrome (+b) value. At first all the bales are categorized. Then from there they gives the list of bales for each lay-down of required number of bales. The average fiber properties from lay down to lay-down is kept constant. The list is sent to the warehouse. From there the store personnel procures the bales according to the category and send a list of the ID. No. of the bales.
