Survey Results: Factories Using PMTS based Software for Determining Garment SAM

In the last month, an online survey was conducted by OCS on the topic Are You Using Software for Determining Garment SAM? to understand how many factories have IE departments and how many factories prepare operation bulletins of the garments out of total global garment factories, two more questions were asked in the survey. Results of those questions have been also published here.

As committed, I am publishing the survey result in this post. If you missed participating in the survey, you can comment in the below comment box.

The Result:

Total participant factories: 101 Nos.
We have received multiple entries from the same factories. Single entry is considered for each factory.

- Number factories that have IE department: 82
- Number of factories those prepare OB (irrespective of having IE dept.): 83
- Number of factories that used PMTS based software for calculating Operation SAM for making OB: 26

The survey results are shown in the following graphs.

Fig-1: Percentage of factories having IE Dept. 
Fig-2: Percentage of factories prepare OB
Fig-3: Percentage factories own SAM calculation software

Poll Result:

You might have seen that we have run a poll on the same topic for 3 weeks. We have received a good number of entries in the poll and outcome is shown in the following chart.

Note: This survey result may not be showing true stats for the global sample. The above stats are based on online survey results and sample size 101, most of the participants are from India and Bangladesh.

P.S. As per my knowledge number of factories that use Software for calculating garment SAM is less than 10% out of global garment factories. The result is showing here is high percentage due to less number of participant factories.
