# Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator

## What is the Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator?

The Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator is a tool used in the textile industry to calculate the amount of fabric needed to produce trousers based on the length, width, and GSM (grams per square meter) of the fabric.

## Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator

Formula:

CPD= L×W× GSM × 12 /1,00,00,000 kg

## CPD (Consumption Per Dozen) for Trouser:

Length =40″(Pant Length) + 1″(In Bottom Seam Allowance) + 2″(In Waist Band Seam Allowance)

= 43″ = 43 × 2.54 [1″ = 2.54 cm]

= 110 cm

Width =25″(Thigh) + 1″[Out Seam Sewing Allowance (0.5″ + 0.5″)] + 1″[In Seam Sewing Allowance (0.5″ + 0.5″)]

=27″ =27 x 2.54 cm [1″ = 2.54 cm]  = 69 cm × 2 (Two Thigh)

= 138 cm

CPD= L×W× GSM × 12 /1,00,00,000 kg

=110 x 138 x 230 x 12 /1,00,00,000 kg

= 4.19 kg + 7% Add for Wastage

= 4.19 kg + 0.29 kg

= 4.48 kg / dz

• Fabric quantity depends on fabric GSM and size measurement for sewing garments (trousers).
• 7% more fabric booking will be needed as wastage when the garment (trouser) is calculated for sewing directly from fabric or 15% (big order 12%) more yarn booking will be needed as wastage when the garment (trouser) is calculated for sewing from yarn.

## How to Use the Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator?

1. Enter the length of the trouser fabric (in centimeters) into the “Length” field.
2. Enter the width of the trouser fabric (in centimeters) into the “Width” field.
3. Enter the GSM (grams per square meter) of the fabric into the “GSM” field.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to determine the consumption per dozen (CPD) in kilograms.
5. Click the “Refresh” button to clear all fields and start over.

## Points to be Considered:

A. Measurement:

1) Pant Length (Side Seam / Out Seam)

2) Thigh

B. Seam Allowance + Sewing Allowances:

C. Fabric GSM: 220 230 GSM (Interlock Fabric)

## Application of Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator:

The Trouser Basic Consumption Calculator is essential for textile manufacturers and designers to accurately estimate the amount of fabric required for producing trousers in bulk. By using the CPD calculation, manufacturers can optimize fabric usage, minimize waste, and improve production efficiency, leading to cost savings and sustainable manufacturing practices.
