Calculate production time
Calculation of production time is very important in embroidery, otherwise there may be massive delays in delivery. Depending on the number of stitches, thread cuts and color changes, the results can be very different. An exact calculation is therefore highly recommended.
In Western Europe, labor costs are by far the largest cost factor in embroidery. Therefore, comparing the production times of a job on different machines can be very important. The more efficiently you use this valuable labor, the more money is left over from each job – which ultimately helps secure jobs.
If you have multiple embroidery machines, it will also calculate which embroidery machine is the most efficient and how much can be saved. This is done based on the following factors: Operating costs, manual work, investment as well as maintenance costs and the data of the embroidery pattern.
