Lay slip: A format or slip used to record lay details is known as lay slip. Lay slip is also known as lay order. In the lay slip normally records, such as the number of each lay, lay length, a number of fabric plies, a number of markers and number of plies spread from each fabric roll etc. are recorded. Later the fabric left out such as end bits, and end loss is calculated using lay slip data.

Lay length: The length of the fabric ply in a lay is called as la length. The lay length is planned according to the marker length.

Lay height: After complete spreading of the fabric, we got a certain height of the lay. Lay height is maintained while fabrics are spread on the table to allow the cutting machine to cut the fabric. Lay height may vary depending on the cutting machines. Secondly, the number of fabric plies on a lay depend on the fabric thickness.
