What is SMV (Standard Minute Value)

The full form of SMV is Standard Minute Value. The work study team and industrial engineers in the garment industry, use 'SMV' term to define the standard time of an individual garment operation as well as for the whole garment SMV. The SAM is another term used for standard time.

What is SMV

Considering the SMV as the standard time required for making each garment, factory plans manpower and machine requirement for the garment orders.

The daily production target of a line is calculated from the SMV. 

Individual employee performance, as well as the production line's performance, is measured based on SMV produced by the employee and by the line.

For example, say SMV of a shirt is 22 minutes (including stitching and non-stitching operations), that means the established standard time for the shirt is 22 minute (given time).

The Garment SMV is used for labour costing for garment production. SMV is used for performance benchmarking as well.

You see the importance of the SMV in the garment manufacturing industry.

The accurate SMV of an operation (task) can be established through motion analysis and using PMTS codes and time. PMTS software is available for establishing garment SMV.

In the SMV time, a certain percentage is added as allowances. 

SMV is an estimated time. In practice, the average time taken by the operator does not match most of the time. 

For the same operation of a garment style, operation SMV can be different, when SMV is established by two different engineers. 

One should aim to set accurate SMV for the garment as well as individual operations. A wrong SMV will give you wrong labour costing value, will generate incorrect worker's earning, wrong employee performance, wrong factory performance, and wrong planning.
