Introduction:
Costing is very important for a productive factory. Without proper costing all production curriculums will go vain. Because a factory cannot reach to its goal without achieving good profit and good profit is not possible without skillful costing.
Costing of the product:

Let, price of yarn is \$ 3.00/kg
Process loss of yarn for knitting (10%) = \$0.30
Knitting fabric cost = \$3.30
Cost of dyes & chemicals = \$2.50
Process loss for dyeing (12%) = \$0.30
Dyed fabric cost = \$6.10
Packing cost = \$0.05
Production cost of fabric = \$6.15
Fabric price (with 25% margin) = \$7.79

Fabric consumption/doz,

(Body length + Sleeve length + 10) x Chest length x 2 GSM x 12
= …………………………………………………………....................………
10000000

Garment specification:

Body length = 78 cm
Sleeve length = 33 cm
Chest length = 62 cm
GSM = 210

(78 + 33) x 62 x 2 x 210 x 12
Fabric consumption/doz. = ………………………………
1000
= 3.469 kg

Fabric consumption/doz (with 10% wastage) = 3.816 kg
Body fabric cost/doz = \$(7.79 × 3.816) = \$29.73
Cost of collar & cuff/doz = \$4.00
Cost of trims = \$2.25
Cost of trims (with 5% process loss) = \$2.36
Production cost of garment/doz = \$36.09
Garment price/doz (with 25% profit) = \$45.12
