Textile material is the biggest cost driver of the apparel industry, reaching up to 75 % of
total production cost, so even minimal fabric savings directly affects the overall production costs. Based on the data given in the work order in terms of quantities, sizes
and colors, the cut order plan makes efforts to minimize the total production costs
by developing an optimal cut order plan in terms of available quantities of material,
machinery and labor. Marker has a direct impact on fabric consumption. The choice
of the cut marker type depends on the type of garment, textile material structure and
work order size. Understanding how to reduce consumption of textile materials, or
in other words said increasing the utilization of cut markers is of great importance for
technical preparation in the apparel industry, due to their important role in controlling
material costs. The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect that the type and
width of markers has on the consumption and utilization of textile materials.
