Not sure how to get started? Learning to write pitches can feel like learning a new language, but there are some basic pitch formulas that can help you get started:

Formula #1: When [MAIN CHARACTER] experiences [INCITING INCIDENT] they must [ACT/DECIDE] before [CONSEQUENCE].

Formula #2: [MAIN CHARACTER] wants [GOAL] more than anything, but [OBSTACLE] is in the way. They must [DECISIVE ACTION] or [DOOM] will happen.

Once you have the framework in place, layer in details like character age (especially if writing MG/YA), and other pertinent info. You might even have room to introduce elements of voice, comp titles, etc . . . We'll soon be adding a "Pitches that Worked!" video to our YouTube channel to give you a sense of what's doable. Stay tuned!

Basic Pitch Time= (Total Basic minutes of a garment/ Total Number operations)
Where,  Basic minutes for the garment can be calculated using following formula.
Total Basic minutes = Sum of basic minutes of each operation

Generally an Operation Bulletin includes one column for calculated machine requirement and another column for actual machine requirement. Calculated machine, which is calculated requirement mostly come in fraction. See diagram-1. But in practical you can't assign fraction of a machine. Secondly you have to allocate correct number of machines to get output as per hourly target. Where work content is high (greater than Pitch) you plan for more that one machine for the same operation. When do you add one machine more and share work with other operation (machine) depends on work content and it is decided by Upper and Lower control limits.
