Big Data and Manufacturing – How to Effectively Capitalize on the Next Big Trend
Often, trends come and go in a matter of weeks, but for fashion manufacturing, jumping on the fad of the moment can lead to leftover inventory and profit loss. However, when companies use technology to aggregate trend data over multiple retailers and manufacturers, they can begin to predict trends. What’s more, using technology to increase efficiency can reduce production and shipping lead-times to drive products that are on trend in as few as three weeks. During a panel discussion, experts that are integral to the supply chain ecosystem will touch upon how they have been able to produce, ship and receive trend-right product in a short window, while maintaining profitability.
Global Sourcing Trends: What’s on the Horizon for the Textile & Apparel Industry
An open panel discussion on the current world trade policies and how they are shaping the textile and apparel industry sourcing choices.
