**How to Calculate Sewing Line Capacity of an Apparel Industry?**

Sewing line capacity is an important matter in the **ready-made garments sector**. By calculating sewing line capacity we can easily calculate the **production capacity of any factory**. As its importance, today I will present here the calculation method of sewing line’s capacity of the apparel industry.

**The calculation method of sewing line capacity in the apparel industry:**

To calculate the sewing lines capacity of a garment factory, an industrial engineer has needed the following information:

- No. of sewing machines in the line,
- Workers absence percentage of that line,
- Daily working hours of that factory,
**Line efficiency of that factory**,- The standard allowed minutes (SAM) for the produced item.

Now, by using the below formula, an industrial engineer can easily calculate the sewing line’s capacity of the factory.

**Sewing line’s capacity (In pcs),**

**Example:**

Suppose, in Abonty Fashions, a line is running for producing full sleeve shirt with 30 machines at 8hrs working day, where the line’s efficiency is 60% and worker absence percentage is 5%.

Find out the sewing lines capacity for the above factory.

**Solution:**

Here,

No. of sewing machines in line= 30,

Workers absence percentage of that line= 5%,

Daily working hours of that factory= 8,

Line efficiency of that factory= 60%,

The standard allowed minutes (SAM) for full sleeve shirt= 25.

So,

**Sewing line capacity (In pcs),**

= 328.32

=328pcs

So, the sewing line’s capacity per day for the above factory is 328pcs.
