Garment costing

Question:  I am a merchandising management student, I want to know how to calculate the cost of a garment using following details.

1. Fabric consumption: 0.8 yards per garment.
2. Fabric wastage allowance 3%
3. Fabric price: \$2.7per yard.
4. Total charges for insurance & fright \$ 0.3 (per yard). Fabric is being ordered from Hong Kong.
5. Finance charges for fabric purchasing is 15%.
6. Trim cost: \$ 1.5 per garment (excluding thread cost).
7. 5000 meter of thread cones being used for sewing, 210 meters of threads needed for a garment and the price of a thread cone is \$6.
8. Garment SMV is 40.
9. Labor rate: the selling price of a minute is \$ 0.03

To calculate the cost of the garment, I will first create a table in excel sheet. Then I will calculate material cost and labor cost. Finally sum up all cost together to calculate total cost of the garment. In the following I have shown you step by step process for calculating cost of the garment using information provided on the above.

Step 1: Arrange information in the excel table, provided on the above problem. See the following table, where I have arranged all required information to find final garment cost. I have given code number to each information A, B, ...J.
I added extra rows where I need to calculate something to calculate sub costs and necessary information. Like M, N, O and P.

Step 2: Calculate total fabric consumption including wastage percentage (M)
Total fabric consumption per garment = Calculated fabric consumption (1+Wastage%)
Or M=A(1+B)

Step 3: Calculate fabric cost per garment (N): Factory has incurred cost in insurance and freight and finance charge. I have calculated fabric related cost together.

So, Fabric cost per garment (including freight and finance charge) = (M*(C+D))+(M*C*E)

Step 4: Trim cost: Total cost of the trims has been given.

Here thread cost per garment = G*H/5000

Step 6: Calculate labor cost per garment (P): Labor cost per garment is calculated using garment SMV (standard time) and labor cost per minute.

Labor cost per garment (P) = Garment SMV * Labor cost per minute

Step 7: Calculate total garment cost (GC):
I have calculated all sub costs required to find total garment cost.
Total garment cost = (Fabric cost + Trim cost + Thread cost + Labor Cost)
Total garment cost = (\$2.81 + \$1.50 + \$0.25 + \$1.20) = \$5.76
