Dear Bipul Bhai
Seeking your permission for allow me to share the answer of Mr. Rahman's Question . if i make any mistake pls correct it .
Sweater don’t have solid or finished fabric like Woven & knit item, by linking one yarn with another the shape of the different part of sweater is made. so that there is no such consumption formula for sweater like knit & woven item .
For costing of sweater, we need to make a sample first as per customer required style, measurement & weight . It is wise to make the sample following the middle size of customer spec. Then weight that sweater & multiply the weight with 12 pcs to know the weight of per dozen sweater. Then add wastage percentage (Generally we calculate 10-20% wastage based on styling). This way we can found the sweater consumption
In the view of above the sweater costing formula will be like as below…….
= Yarn weight (in LBS / dzn Garments ) + wastage X price of yarn /lbs
= Result of usable total yarn cost
- Yarn :- Total usable Yarn cost/dzn
- Add total Accessories cost /dz
- Add Print/Emb.(If any) / dz
- Add Zipper cost (If any) / dz
- Add Button cost (If any) / dz
- Add CM (CM based on styling and gauge) /dz
- Add Commercial cost / dz
- Add Profit /dz
Weight of following sweater is 8 lbs/ doz (12 GG basic Style)
Wastage is 12% of total weight = 0.96 lbs / doz
Yarn price is $4 /lbs
Basic Accessories cost is: $5 / doz
Print cost : $ 0.65 / doz
Zipper + button cost : $1 / doz
CM : $28 / doz
Commercial cost : $2 / doz
Now the costing formula will be
= (Total usable yarn in lbs + 12% wastage ) X Yarn price/lbs + Accessories cost + Print cost + Zipper & button cost + CM + Commercial cost
= (8 lbs + 0.96 lbs ) X $4 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2
= 8.96 lbs X $4 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2
= $35.84 + $5 + $0.65 + $1 + $28 + $2
= $ 72.49 / dozen
Then divided by 12,
$ 72.49 /12 Pcs
$ 6.04/pc FOB .
Now add your profit & submit the quotation to buyer.
