### How to Estimate Production Capacity of a Garment Factory?

Production capacity estimation for a garment factory is an important issue in the readymade garments sector. It plays an important role in the buyer in selecting the right vendor for their orders. How much a garment factory can produce their items per day has been estimated here. As its importance in the garments manufacturing sector, today I will present here the production’s capacity estimation method for a garment factory.

#### Production Capacity:

The production capacity of a garment factory is totally related to machine (hr) capacity, line efficiency of that factory and standard allowed minute (SAM) of produced item. For achieving accurate production capacity of a garment factory, an industrial engineer should confirm accurate cutting room capacity, finishing room capacity, and washing capacity also.

#### Production Capacity Calculation Method of a Garment Factory:

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

1. Machine (hr) capacity per day,
2. Individual productâ€™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 the 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, the garment productions capacity of the above factory is 2880pcs per day.
