Accurate Fabric Cost

(Improving Fabric yield and est)
 
The process of estimating fabric yields involved in offshore or in-house manufacturing.
Fabric is 25-40% of the cost of a garment,so accuracy here is worthy of attention.
In an environment of faster turn time we look at the possible ways to estimate fabric usage for our client Local or Offshore manufacturing.
Graded pattern offer a more accurate way to estimate yield than using the sample size pattern.

For example look at the 8-18 size range with a sample size 10.

 
Size                          8      10      12      14      16      18
% of production   8%    17% 25% 25% 17% 8% =100%
Sales Ratio              1       2         3        3        2        1
