Dyeing Cost Calculation Method in Textile Industry:
Find out the dyeing cost and rate per kg from the given chart.
 Parameters Amount or Quantity Fabric quantity 400kg Dye A consumed 5kg Dye B consumed 3kg Dye C consumed 2kg Chemical A consumed 50kg Chemical B consumed 10kg Shift in a day 3 shift Total process time 12hrs No. of labors 3 Labor wages Rs. 200 per shift Steam Rs. 75000 per month Power Rs. 50000 per month Transport Rs. 20000 per month Salary Rs. 100000 per month Other expenses Rs. 120000 per month Dyes A price Rs. 250 per kg Dyes B price Rs. 300 per kg Dyes C price Rs. 400 per kg Chemical A price Rs. 5 per kg Chemical B price Rs. 50 per kg Profit 20%
Solution:

To calculate the dyeing cost in textile sector, the following formula have to maintained:

Dyeing cost per kg,

Direct materials (D.M) + Direct labor (D.L) + Direct expense (D.E) + Overhead
= ………………………………………………………………………………………….…             ….. (1)

Total dyeing production

Total Dyeing Production Calculation:
Total production
= Fabric input
= 400kg

Total Production Time Calculation:

Total production calculation,
= Process time
= 16hrs
= (16/8) shift
= 2 shift

Direct Material Cost (D.M) Calculation:
Dye A cost = Amount of dye × Dye price = 5×Rs. 250 = Rs. 1250
Dye B cost = Amount of dye × Dye price = 3×Rs. 300 = Rs. 900

Dye C cost = Amount of dye × Dye price = 2×Rs. 400 = Rs. 800

Chemical A cost = Amount of chemical × Chemical price = 50×Rs. 5 = Rs. 250

Chemical B cost = Amount of chemical × Chemical price = 30×Rs. 50 = Rs. 1500

So,
Dyeing material cost stands at,
= Rs. 1250 + Rs. 900 + Rs. 800 + Rs. 250 + Rs. 1500

= Rs. 4700

Direct Labor Cost (D.L) Calculation:
Operator wages,
= No. of labor × No. of shift × labor wage per shift
= 4×2×Rs. 200

= Rs. 1600

Direct Expense Cost (D.E) Calculation:

Direct expense = 0

In case of steam,

= {(Cost × 2 shifts)/ (30days × 3 shifts in a day)} = {(75000×2)/90} = Rs. 1667

In case of transport,

= {(Cost × 2 shifts)/ (30days × 3 shifts in a day)} = {(20000×2)/90} = Rs. 445

In case of power,

= {(Cost × 2 shifts)/ (30days × 3 shifts in a day)} = {(50000×2)/90} = Rs. 1112

In case of salary,

= {(Cost × 2 shifts)/ (30days × 3 shifts in a day)} = {(100000×2)/90} = Rs. 2224

In case of other expenses,

= {(Cost × 2 shifts)/ (30days × 3 shifts in a day)} = {(120000×2)/90} = Rs. 2667

So,
= Rs. 1667 + Rs. 1112 + Rs. 445 + Rs. 2224 + Rs. 2667

= Rs. 8115

Now, from equation (1), we get,

Dyeing cost per kg,
= {(4700+ 1600+ 0+ 8115)/400}

= Rs. 36.00

After adding 20% profit, dyeing rate stands at
= {36/ (1-20%)}
= Rs. 45.00
