Material utilization is mainly concerned by industrial practitioners since it contributes to minimize the total production costs for garment manufacturing. Apart from the marker loss, splice loss (the fabric loss during the joining of different fabric rolls) is one of the primary causes of fabric loss, but it has not been considered specifically in the past literatures. The amount of splice loss during fabric spreading is governed by various factors including the marker length, the number of fabric rolls, and the number of splicing intervals for laying-up. In our study, these three effects on splice loss during fabric spreading were computed and analysed.
