Productivity Study of Shirt Manufacturing (Survey)

Last week, I was in a meeting with a group of Garment Industry Professionals. We were discussing the possibility of shirt production per machine per day for a new start-up company. In the discussion, we got productivity figures like 8-20 shirts per machine per day (8 hours shift day). The BIG question is what productivity to be considered.

I did a quick research on the internet and found that Laguna Clothing, a Bangalore-based shirt manufacturing company makes 3200 pieces with 200 sewing machines in one factory and 7200 pieces with 350 sewing machines in another factory. That means the machine productivity of that company is 16 and 20.6 respectively. Operator productivity of Madura Garments Exports is 11 pieces in conventional line and 18 pieces in the lean module.

I know many of you are working in shirt factories. What is your experience with the productivity level of factories that make shirts (Casual and Formal)?

At Online Clothing Study, we are conducting a survey on Shirt Productivity. We request you to participate in this survey. Please feel free to fill up the following survey form. We would not share your personal information. I will only share the summary of the survey with all of you.

Thank you very much for participating in this survey.
