Responding to demand. More than 100 billion garments were made in 2014, half of which in China. Production should reach 115 billion in 2016 to respond to a constantly growing demand. Finding the right balance between volume and quality requires rigorous use of materials and optimal marker-making for each production model. Gaining flexibility. Increasing production capacity is no longer enough. The accelerated multiplication and renewal of collections, as well as increased product customization, means that production must adapt to smaller orders in greater
quantities. To deal with increasing competition, manufacturers have to be more flexible in managing orders. Rationalizing production costs. Reinforcing competitiveness and productivity are key goals. The rise in raw material prices, which represent more than half the finished product cost, heightens these challenges. To offer the best price to contractors, costs must be taken into account from the very first quotation. A design-to-cost approach helps manage this constraint and respond to the demands of brands while preserving profit margins.
