Woven Consumption

Consumption for Woven Fabric
Welcome to ''Consumption'' brief. if you want to find out consumption first of all we try to know what is ''Consumption''. Actually quantity of fabric which is required to produce a garment is called consumption. 
Woven Fabric Consumption

How much fabric is required to produce a garments production of goods. We can determine it through marker planning and mathematical system. We can calculate and determine the consumption of fabric by the following two systems: 

1. Marker planning system 
2. Mathematical system . 
Later will be discuses above those issue ...

There are also two formula for fabric consumption. 
One is woven fabric consumption formula and another is knit fabric consumption formula

Now I only discuss on Consumption of woven fabric. Which is done in mathematical system.
Consumption of woven fabric
To calculate the woven fabric consumption the following requirements is need.

    > Fabric Description.
    > Fabrics width/weight.
    > Measurement chart with technical spec.
    > Washing shrinkage if any.
    > Style Description.

Formula for woven fabric consumption:

Formula = Length X Width / Fab width X Fab Unit

Solution : 01
Length = length of the specific parts + allowance

Width = width of the specific parts + allowance

Fab width = Fabric width ( after considering the shrinkage allowance). Say example that fabric width is 45″ & the shrinkage allowance is 1″, Then the Fabric width will be (45″-1″) = 44″ in the formula.

Fab unit = Fabric calculation unit, here it will be 36 because we are going to calculate the consumption in Yards.

For example, calculate the consumption of a Shirt (front part):

Center front length = 32″+1″ (Sewing allowance) = 33″

Width (Chest) = 24″ + 1″ (Sewing allowance) + 3″

Pleat.W (1.5*2) = 28″
= Length X Width / Fab width X Fab Unit (unit = Yards)
= 33″ X 28″ / 44″ X 36″
= 924″ / 1584″
= 0.5833333
= 0.59 Yards. (for front part) 

If you have any confused or any thing matter feel free comments me no hesitate....
