W.K. Wong,     The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China

Abstract:

In the apparel supply chain, a range of key decisions are always faced by apparel enterprises. These decisions, including site selection for establishing manufacturing plant, production planning and scheduling, line balancing, sales forecasting, etc., rely on the experience and subjective assessment of management and decision makers. As the apparel industry is characterized by short product life cycles, volatile customer demands and tremendous product varieties, such decisions have become more complex. This chapter will discuss these key decision points.
