Calculation of Garments Production

Calculation of Garments Production:

There are some points which must be needed during calculation of garments production,. Those are-

  1. Standard allowed minutes (SAM),
  2. Number of operators- working in a line,
  3. Number of hours running-production line work in a day,
  4. Average line efficiency,
  5. Total break time including Launch, Tea and Others.

During calculation of garments production, we have to follow a formula, that is-

Per day production (pc),
Here, total man-minutes mean number of operators working in a day including total break time for Launch, Tea and Others.

Or,

Total man-minutes = [Total Number of operator’s × {(Working hour in a day × 60minutes) – Total break time}]

Now, we can write equation (1) in the following way-

Per day production (Pc),

So, it is the main formula for estimation/calculation of garment production.

Now, one example is enough to understand the estimation of garment production and that is in the below:

Example:

Let,
For a polo shirt garment,

  • Standard allowed minutes (SAM) is-25 minutes,
  • Number of operators in a working line is-20
  • Number of hours running-production line work in a day- 8hrs
  • Average line efficiency – 60%
  • Total break time including Launch, Tea and Others- 60 minutes

So, calculate the estimation of polo shirt garment production.

Solution:
Now, applying the above information in equation (2), we have-

Per day production (pc),
= 336 × 60%
= 201pcs

So, Estimation of polo shirt garment production per day is 201pcs.

Note:

Calculate the below problem by following the above formula:

Calculate the garment production of a polo shirt order from H&M by following some key information like Standard allowed minutes- 23 minutes, total no. of operators working in a sewing line 8hrs in a day- 15, line efficiency- 55% and total break time is 1hrs.
