An accurate estimation of garments production can provide the surety of garments shipment in timely. But there are some key factors which affect the estimation of garments production. As a result, sometimes it’s not possible to respect the shipment date.
Factors Affecting Estimation of Garments Production:
The main five key factors which affect the estimation of garments production are-
- Standard allowed minutes,
- Number of operators- working in a line,
- Production line running time in a day,
- Average line efficiency,
- Total break time
All the above key factors are discussed in the below:
1. Standard allowed minutes:
Standard allowed minutes or SAM of garments means how much time will require to make one complete garment. Standard allowed minutes or SAM has a great importance in estimating garments production. Here, if time required more, then production will take more times and vice-versa. It is the main key factor among five key factors which affect on the estimation of garments production.
2. Number of operators- working in a line:
It is the second important one that affects on the estimation of garment production, if higher number of worker will work in a working line, then production of an order also takes less time to complete and vice-versa.
3. Production line running time in a day:
It is another key point which affects on the estimation of garments production. If production line will run more time than its schedule time, then the production of an order also takes less time to complete and vice-versa.
4. Average line efficiency:
Average line efficiency is totally related with machine break down, imbalance line, continuous feeding to the line, quality problems, level of individual operator performance and absence of operator. If these types of problem have to face during garment production, then automatically reduce the average line efficiency of any production and vice-versa.
5. Total break time:
During garments production, a worker can enjoy his/her fixed break time for launch, tea and others. If theirs total break time will more, then production of an order needs more time to complete and vice-versa.
