The Importance of Supply Chain in the Apparel Industry!
Efficient supply chain management means that the operations within the supply chain are being carried out in the most optimum manner possible. Therefore, we will not have to worry about optimizing operations further. When such is the state of our business, we can focus on business development and get a greater degree of operational flexibility since many operations are automated.
Utilization of Resources
When we manage our supply chain in an efficient manner, it means that we are utilizing your resources to the maximum. Be it the raw materials and inventory, be it the warehousing capacity, be it the packaging and be it the transportation aspect – everything is being managed in an efficient manner. This is also the reason why supply chain management is so highly regarded – because it leads to proper utilization of the business resources and minimizes the chance for wastage.
When the customer is getting their product delivery on time, they will not find many reasons to not be happy with the business service. What this will lead to is greater rate of customer satisfaction, and hence, better business prospects. We will be able to grow our apparel business and expand it to more locations.
Why Is Supply Chain Management Required in the Apparel Industry?
The areas that are handled under supply chain management include:
What are Rainbow Touches steps in handling an emergency situation?
If there are problems with your design, you can urgently contact our sales team. Rainbow Touches team (including the sales team, designers, and production supervisors) will immediately hold a meeting to determine a solution and adjust the production process as soon as possible.
When material problems occur, Rainbow Touches will promptly inform both the material supplier and you and propose a solution, such as using alternative materials. We strengthen supply chain management to ensure the timely supply of raw materials and accessories, avoiding production stagnation due to shortages or delays in supply.
If the delivery date is delayed, Rainbow Touches will notify you promptly and adjust the production schedule as soon as possible to ensure timely delivery. If you have an urgent order, tell us your delivery dates and we will evaluate and reply with a solution within 24 hours. For example, we have made 1000 T-shirts for urgent order customers within 15 days.
Production line issues
Rainbow Touches has established an agile production system, which can respond to changes in customer needs faster, adjust production plans and processes in a timely manner, repair in time to ensure the stability of the production line, optimize the efficiency of the production line or increase the production line to increase production.
Staff allocation issues
In the event of staff problems, we arrange for the replacement of staff promptly and can allocate and train staff within a short period to improve production efficiency and quality.
If quality problems are found, production should be stopped immediately, and investigations and improvements conducted. We control the quality of raw materials, accessories, and production processes to ensure that every product meets quality standards and avoid returns or complaints due to quality issues.
If logistics problems arise, Rainbow Touches will promptly contact the logistics company and coordinate a solution.
When equipment malfunctions, it needs to be checked and repaired immediately to ensure that it runs normally. We have prepared emergency backup equipment, such as sewing machines and needles.
During the production process, safety regulations must be followed to ensure the safety of employees. At the same time, we strengthen employee safety education and training to ensure safety and protection during the production process.
We can reduce the cost of raw materials through effective supplier negotiations and inventory management, ensuring the timely, accurate, and quality supply of raw materials, and provide you with more advantageous quotations.
