What are the components affecting fabric utilization?
The above mentioned are some of the major factors affecting fabric consumption. Other factors which affect can be a symmetry of the garment, better size mixes, nature of the fabric or even the manual handling of fabric during spreading and cutting.
How material utilization in the cutting room can be enhanced?
Sort your fabric rolls width wise and shade wise Once you sort the fabric according to the fabric width, you can prepare multiple markers depending on the fabric width. This way you can improve fabric utilization by reducing edge loss that normally happened when we follow the same marker for different fabric widths.
How is fabric wastage calculated?
If you know the area and fabric width, you can calculate the length of the fabric. Let’s say your sample marker is made using 3 garments patterns (3-way marker) and the marker length is 4.2 meters (including with end loss). Here fabric consumption would be 4/3 = 1.4 meters (this is before adding the fabric wastage).
How do you minimize fabric wastage when cutting?
How to Minimize the Wastage during Fabric Cutting:
- Reduce the Ends of ply losses.
- Minimize the Selvedge losses.
- Reduce the Loss of fabric ends.
- Careful about Fabric Purchase.
- Identify Fabric defects.
What is percentage of fabric utilization?
It means how much fabric is being utilized in cutting for garment patterns out of total fabric laid for cutting. Generally, fabric constitutes 60% to 70% of the total garment cost. So, through effective fabric utilization factory can save lot of money from fabric.
What is marker efficiency?
Marker efficiency is defined as a ratio of area of marker used in a garment and area of total marker. Secondly, Glock and Kunz have defined this term in their book, Apparel Manufacturing as Marker efficiency is determined from fabric utilization, the percentage of total fabric that is actually used in garment parts.
What is material Utilisation?
Material utilisation (MUT) is the amount of a structure’s capacity that is ‘used up’. It can refer to the material’s strength, stiffness, durability, and so on. It is normally given in % terms, so something that is working very hard might have a MUT ratio of 95%.
How do you increase cutting productivity?
6 ways to improve speed, efficiency and quality in materialographic cutting
- Cutting is the foundation of a good quality control process and any mistakes can jeopardize your verification result.
- Improve sample quality by avoiding thermal damage.
- Improve reproducibility by avoiding cracks in brittle materials or coatings.
How do you make fabric consumption?
- Fabric Consumption by Single Formula Method: (Body length + Sleeve L. + Allowance) × (Half Chest + Allowance) × 2 × 12 × 160.
- Fabric Consumption by Individual formula Method: Body part consumption; (Body length + Allowance) × (Half Chest + Allowance) × 2 × 12 × 160 × 1.10.
- Fabric Consumption by marker planning formula:

How is Sam Cutting calculated?
How to Calculate Cutting SAM?
- Do cycle time of Jobs (time study for 5 – 10 cycles)
- Do performance rating ( Assess how fast or slow the operator doing the job in 1-100 scale)
- Calculate Basic time (Basic time = cycle time X performance rating)
- Add allowances (machine allowance + personal fatigue)
