Abstract: The consumer market is changing very fast, from mass product to customization. Apparel market is sensitive and highly affected by fashion and seasonal change, is a typical custom market. Due to the constantly changing of demand, the garment brand supplier forces to provide wide variety of product at small quantity, to fulfill the unique customer needs. To catch the selling season, entire garment chain is working on deadline basis, all partners will be suffered if any part of the chain is failed to perform. Fabric producers, downstream supplies of garments, most of them are volume producer that reluctant to work on small order. The continuous shrinkage of order forces them to produce goods beyond optimal production quantity at high cost. With facility constraint, it leads to longer production lead time and higher defect rate. This makes downstream garment factory working at more tighten timeline to catch the season.
