188.8.131.52 Task Scheduling:
It is the process of planning of time and action calendar for each order from the receipt of order to dispatch of the same. The task schedule comprises a list of jobs to be processed for the style of garment. Alongside of each tasks the production planner cited about when to start a task and what is target date for completion of the same. For example, scheduling planned cut date (PCD), line loading date etc.

188.8.131.52 Calculation of SAM of a Garment
SAM or Standard Allowed Minute is used to measure task or work content of a garment. This term is widely used by industrial engineers and production people in the garment manufacturing industry. For the estimation of cost of making a garment SAM value plays a very important role (Martinich 1997). General Sewing Data (GSD) has defined set of codes for motion data for SAM calculation. There is also other methods through which one can calculate SAM of a garment without using synthetic data or GSD.
Calculation of SAM Using Synthetic Data
In this method 'Predetermined Time Standard' (PTS) code are used to establish 'Standard Time' of a garment or other sewing products.
Step 1: Select one operation for which one wants to calculate the SAM
Step 2: Study the motions of that operation by standing at the side of an operator and seeing how the operator is performing it and noting down all movements used by the operator in doing one complete cycle of
