Production planning and control is one of the most important aspects of the garment manufacturing industry.
Garment manufacturers can’t afford to lose time or materials in the production process. Lost time can lead to late fees when products aren’t delivered as promised. Buyers quickly find other companies to replace manufacturers who can’t deliver, and in an industry that already faces tight competition, you can’t take that chance.
With styles changing rapidly and vendors making increasingly smaller orders to keep up with changing trends, the planning phase of each production piece must be as accurate as possible.
