OCS's Answer:

Production planning involves capacity planning of sewing processes and allocation of resources according to production demand in the specified time frame. You need to do planning for each styles due to product variation and variation of order quantity. Number of total operations, manpower and machine requirement vary based on the style. And if your order quantity increases you need to plan for extra manpower to finish the order in same time frame.  

Production planning of a style in various processes has been shown below.

Lay planning

Lay planning will depend on size ratio in an order and total number of color ways in a style. For example, When your order consist of 300 units in size ratio S:M:L::1:1:1 (100:100:100), you can plan for a single lay of 100 layers of 3 size marker. If the size ratio is S:M:L::1:2:1 (75:150:75) then you have to plan for two lays. One for size Small and Large 75 layers in one lay. Second one for Medium size double marker with 75 layers.

No. of Operations

Numbers of operation of a style will depend on garment constructions. To know exactly how many operations are there analyse the garment. For example, a man's shirt contains about 40 operations. Read Operation Breakdown and SAM of the Full Sleeve Formal Men’s Shirt.
