# How to Estimate Operator Efficiency in Garments Industry

**How to Estimate Operator Efficiency in Garments Industry?**

The term “Operator efficiency” has a great impact on the **garments manufacturing** sector. Operator efficiency is proportional to the higher production of an order. So, operator efficiency estimation or calculation is very important to achieve the production target. As its importance in the **RMG sector**, today I will present the estimation method of operator efficiency.

**The calculation method of Operator Efficiency in Garments Industry:**

Before estimating or calculating an operator’s efficiency an industrial engineer should confirm the following items:

- Total number of pieces made by the operator,
- SAM (Standard Allowed Minutes) of the operation (Cutting or Sewing),
- Total working hours in the machine.

Now, by using the following formula, an industrial engineer can easily estimate or calculate the operator’s efficiency.

**Operator’s efficiency (%),**

Now, one example is enough to remove all the confusion from the above discussion.

**Example:**

In Noman Fashion Ltd. an operator was doing an operation of SAM 0.60 minute. In that time he produced 400 pieces in 8 hours working shift per day. Now calculate the operator’s efficiency.

**Solution:**

Here,

Total number of pieces made by the operator- 400pcs

SAM (Standard allowed minutes) of the operation (Cutting or Sewing) – 0.6minute

Total working hours in the machine- 8hrs

So, by putting all the information in the blow formula, an industrial engineer can estimate or calculate the operator’s efficiency.

**Operator efficiency (%),**

= 50%

So, the operator’s efficiency stands at 50%.

**Note:**

You can try to solve the below two problems related to this question:

- An operator of Tawhida Nishat Apparel Ltd. was doing an operation of Standard Allowed Minutes (SAM) 0.50 minute. He produced 300 pieces in that time in 7 hours working shift per day. Now calculate the operator’s efficiency of that factory.
- Rahela, a female operator of Chittagong Fashions Ltd has completed an operation of Standard Allowed Minutes (SAM) 0.55 minute. She manufactured 350 pieces in that time in 9 hours working shift per day. Find out the operator’s efficiency of that clothing manufacturing factory.

this is verry helpfull and essential.

thanks.
