**How to Calculate Operator Efficiency in Textile & Garments Industry**

**Introduction:**

For making maximum profit in garments industry every production officer should know operator efficiency. An operator with higher efficiency produces more garments than an operator with lower efficiency in the same time frame. When operators work with higher efficiency,

**manufacturing cost**of the factory goes down. And garments industry will make profit easily.

**Operator Efficiency Formula:**

To calculate the operator efficiency following formula should be followed by any industrial engineer.

Total minute produced by an operator

**Operator efficiency (%) = ..........................................................**

Total minute attended X 100

Total minute produced=Total piece made X

Total minutes attended=Total hours worked in the machine X 60

**Where,**Total minute produced=Total piece made X

**SAM**of the operation (Cutting or Sewing) &Total minutes attended=Total hours worked in the machine X 60

**Example:**
An operator was doing an operation of SAM 0.50 minutes. In an 8 hours shift day he produces 500 pieces.

So according to the efficiency calculating formula, that operator’s overall efficiency,

Total minute produced by an operator

Total minute attended by operator X 100

= (500 x 0.50) / (8 X 60) X 100%

= 250/480 X 100%

= 52%

So according to the efficiency calculating formula, that operator’s overall efficiency,

Total minute produced by an operator

**Operator Efficiency% = ……………...........…………………………**Total minute attended by operator X 100

= (500 x 0.50) / (8 X 60) X 100%

= 250/480 X 100%

= 52%
