5 Software to Establish Garment SAM (SMV)

In the apparel industry, knowing the correct Standard Minute of a product is very important for many reasons. There are mechanisms for determining product SAM other than software, like Work Sampling and Time Study. But time and motion study based calculations took a longer time to establish the standard time for a garment. Secondly, there is always a question of getting the correct SAM established by Time Study and operator performance rating.

To get rid of these issues leading garment manufacturers are adopting SAM calculation Software. With quick Standard Minute establishing, most of these software products help in calculating direct labour cost and CMT price; setting up standard sewing methods and improve production methods.

In this post, I will share leading SAM calculation software products. All the following products are developed from Methods Time Measurement (MTM) and known as PMTS database.
