The development of Smart Clothes is a promising new market for the clothing industry and trade. Nearly all of these new products use electric power to run the electronic or microsystem devices, integrated into the garment. The availability of robust and flexible solar cells makes it possible to avoid complicated and uncomfortable processes of charging batteries or accumulators. The integration of solar systems into Smart Clothes result in a mobile socket for any kind of device. The Smart Clothes Solutions can be autarkic or can lengthen at least the running time of the equipment carried on.
Facing the fierce competition at home and abroad, the Chinese clothing enterprises' should not only improve their innovative ability and brand reputations, but also know well about their competitors and the whole fashion industry, if they want to survive and develop in today's global market. Ecommerce platforms and the Competitive Intelligence Systems (CIS) can provide the most effective means for them to get such useful information. However, despite the fact that most small and medium-sized Chinese clothing enterprises have begun to use clothing e-commerce platforms to release or get supply- demand information, most of them have a lot of difficulties building their own competitive intelligence systems for human or financial reasons. This paper is based on a study which is designed to establish a seamless connection between the clothing e-commerce systems and the Competitive Intelligence Systems in order to provide an integrated platform of e-commerce and competitive intelligence system for the small and medium-sized enterprises so that they can make efficient and right decisions.
Use cloud service to share inventory resource in traditional garments industry, it will allow the staffs to focus on its core business and thus helps it to become more competitive. This article intends to establish a set of indexes for evaluating outsourced cloud service systems in terms of three aspects, i.e. supply, demand and supervision. We then apply Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to collect opinions of related group decision and adopt TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) for the evaluation and ranking of the cloud service system providers.
The clothing industry globally has undergone rapid change within the past few decades. The production of fashion has evolved into a multi faceted industry that is not only concerned with the manufacture of clothing but also the systems of production, distribution, diffusion, reception, adoption and consumption which drive the fashion industry. The South African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (Sactwu) estimates 13400 jobs were lost in the sector in the first 11 months of 2009. SACTWU researcher Etienne Vlok says that in the mid-2000s, the industry was losing about 20000 jobs a year, but in the past three years' job losses has dropped to between 12000 to 14000 jobs a year. Changes in the global economy have enabled the requirement for flexibility, adaptability and innovation that have led to new education and training demands in order to remain competitive. The most significant demand is the proposed need for a highly skilled labour force that has the ability to employ new knowledge, technologies, business improvement methodologies and ultimately add value to existing goods and services. Essentially, these skills and capabilities are developed through a broad general higher education system. Based on research undertaken as part of doctoral studies at the University of Johannesburg, the paper highlights current experiences in the South African clothing industry and academia, and proposes the alignment of industry and academia in order to improve the skills of the workforce.
This study applies an assessment model to measure the efficiency of companies in Vietnam garment industry based on Grey theory (GM (1, 1)) and data envelopment analysis model. The objective of this research is to provide an effective method to find the right strategic partners. Total 11 companies of garment industry are chosen with realistic data collected from financial statements of Vietnam published stock market during period 2007 to 2010. Firstly, the GM (1, 1) is employed to predict the inputs and outputs factor. Secondly, Slack based measure of supper efficiency (Super-SBM) model is applied to help the target company to find the right partners. The empirical results show that companies who have better efficiencies do not guarantee them to get the good performance after alliances, companies with low-mid efficiencies may have the chance to put in efforts for alliances because they may get some benefits for both candidate and target companies. This study could give companies some recommendations about how to improve productivity as well.
In today's garment industry, speed to market is important considering the fast fashion trend. In particular, the efficiency of new product development (NPD) is critical in gaining competitive advantages. The garment industry is material intensive, thus making it more difficult for merchandisers to ensure material availability for sample development compared with other manufacturing industries. Conventionally, when materials with a long lead time affect the sample-making progress, merchandisers formulate action plans based solely on experience. Without any knowledge support for merchandising operations, these merchandisers may fail to make wise decisions, resulting in a long sample development cycle and poor customer satisfaction. The current paper proposes a sample development decision support system to provide knowledge support for sample development. The present study attempts to use rule-based reasoning for determining sample-making operation lead times and material delay times for sample making, followed by case-based reasoning to support the knowledge manipulation involved in sample order processing. After a pilot study in a Hong Kong garment company, the proposed system is found to help accelerate NPD processes by considering both material arrival dates and sample delivery dates to provide merchandisers with suggested guidelines in the sample development process.
While green manufacturing operations have been implemented for many years; many manufacturers are still facing the challenge of balancing the environment cost, social cost and production cost. Though China has been considered as the manufacturing center of the world, due to many non-environmental factors such as the pricing issues driven by customers, uncertainties of the economy and the priorities of management, many manufacturing operations in China are still struggling to achieve the goals of green operations. Furthermore, legal regulations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the brands are pushing hard on the manufacturing plants to solve green issues. This paper investigates the green operation initiatives of three manufacturers to gain insights in how to maintain the intricate balance between profit, social cost and environment cost in the garment industry in China. The strategies and practices in achieving green manufacturing are identified and analyzed. It is envisioned that the strategies and practices identified can be adapted in other industries and can serve as a guideline for other manufacturing operations to benchmark their green practices.
The South African clothing and textile industry has the potential to create jobs, but this potential has been steadily diminishing over the last ten years before 2007. In this context, the clothing industry is regarded as a powerful engine for economic and employment growth, the focus of the research in this paper. Nevertheless, the performance of the clothing industry, whether in terms of efficiency, working conditions or degree of social protection, is unstable. The industry's ability to generate sustainable and productive employment varies according to geographical locations. In general, wages, job security, health and safety, opportunities for skills training in the smaller enterprises (< 50) compare negatively with those offered by larger enterprises (> 100). As most new jobs are in the micro and small enterprises, addressing their poor working conditions and sometimes exploitative practices constituted a mammoth task for the bargaining council (BC). Moreover, evidence indicates that improvements in working conditions and social protection are key ingredients of business efficiency and competitiveness. Sound policy and regulatory environments, with the existence of collaborative structures are crucial for achieving a fair balance between enterprise development and workers well-being. Issues affecting the SA clothing industry are evaluated in some depth. Furthermore a strategic framework and its implications for developing the clothing and textile industry are addressed.
