Your Own Fabric Utilization Dept
I WILL SETUP YOUR DEPARTMENT
This department should be independent and act as the connection/bridge between departments, a department that has access to raw data to be able to utilize this data to create the best consumptions and efficient use of raw materials and available capacity. For over 25 years I have observed the same routine in companies when it comes to cut plan and lay planning.
The Fabric Utilization Dept should get the order quantity from Merchandising, use the roll information from the warehouse. From here the department can produce the cut plans.
Make sure you get the best out of the fabric! Sounds simple and logical but unless you make a dedicated management of fabric/raw material the risk of BOM’s growing and warehouses filled with unallocated raw materials is huge. Remember raw materials cost up to 80% of the cost of your garment depending on where you manufacture.
This is a new way of producing your cut plans and markers, but this is where your money is either saved or wasted. Every company has historical data but very rarely gets used, this department will be setup to use historical data. Look at it in the way you look at an Industrial Engineering department that calculates SMV's they dictate to the production the time study likewise you have the Fabric Utilization Department dictate the proper fabric usage.
