Consumption and costing are integrated parts to each other of a garment. To get clear idea both on consumption and costing is really a superb mixture in one executive. In fact, it’s a core responsibility for a merchandiser to know how to calculate consumption of a garment as well as how to do costing of a knitwear product. Apart from Marketing Team, everybody especially the Merchandiser, Garment Owner, Director, COO/CEO, Accounts and Finance Team should know the fabric consumption and garment costing to run his/her business with right flow. The dept of MIS/Supply Chain/IE can do the costing practice to boost-up their career as well.

In a garment, fabric cost generally holds 50 to 60 percent of total cost. So, consumption should be always perfect to get the correct price of a garment. Honestly, high price always puts you in a tough situation which may lose your business end of the day! In this circumstances, most of the cases you can’t stand in the right queue even on buyer’s choice list! So, to get a sharp price or to be a competitive supplier you always should know how to calculate correct consumption and how to do correct costing of a garment. Competitive price and timely submission of correct sample are always play a handy role to confirm order from any customer.
