OCS's Answer:

Man to machine ratio is considered one of the key performance indicators of a garment manufacturing company. Through this ratio factory management assesses how many personnel are employed per machine. This ratio gives a clear indication of indirect cost percentage on the direct labor cost of a company.

Man to machine ratio (MMR) analysis is done to control overhead cost. As each employee cost to a company how minimum their salary is. Note that different factories may have different MMR based on the factory size.

Factories those measure this ratio and use to control cost have a benchmark man to machine ratio. When MMR increases in a particular month, factory checks where manpower increases. Manpower may increase in sewing floor such as maker man, pressman and helpers or number of staffs. Department head need to confirm if that additional manpower is required permanently or requirement is style base. According to that new MMR is updated.
