Production Capacity Calculation Method of a Garment Factory:

For calculating productions capacity of a garment factory, an industrial engineer should confirm the below information:

  1. Machine (hr) capacity per day,
  2. Individual product’s standard allowed minute (SAM),
  3. Line efficiency of garment factory or factory efficiency.

Now, by using the following formula, an industrial engineer can easily calculate productions capacity of a garment factory.

Production capacity (Pcs),

Example:

Suppose, Noman Fashion Ltd. has 10 sewing lines, each sewing line has 20 machines. They have to produce basic knitted polo shirt items at 8hrs working day, (where machine-hr capacity is 1600hrs and line efficiency is 60%).

So, find out the productions capacity of that factory.

Solution:

Here,

Machine (hr) capacity per day= 1600hrs,

Line efficiency of garment factory= 60%,

Standard allowed minute (SAM) for knitted polo shirt= 20

So,

Productions capacity (Pcs),

= 2880pcs

So, garment productions capacity of the above factory is 2880pcs per day.
