Book chapter + STUDIO

Size designations for apparel products delineate a body size, which is indicated by a letter code or number on a garment label to assist consumers with purchases. Letter code sizing typically encompasses two to three numeric sizes and is reported as one or more letters. A common range for letter code sizing is XXS (extra, extra small), XS (extra small), S (small), M (medium), L (large), XL (extra large), XXL (extra, extra large), or XXXL (triple extra large). The number of sizes offered in the ra

Book chapter

Production is the functional department of any apparel company. The production department is responsible for making sure that raw goods are procured and made into finished goods. Learning the workings of the production department is critical to understanding the value of the technical package, which you will learn about in Part III of this text.

Costing

Book chapter

The relationship between cost and profit is a fundamental theory of business management. Cost is the outlay of expenditure, or dollar amount, the company has invested in a product. Profit is the surplus remaining after total costs are deducted from total returns.

Production Planning and Scheduling

Book chapter

Planning can be one of the most demanding challenges the production manager meets, as controlling daily aspects of a business requires a great deal of experience and organization. Many studies have shown that organizations should have formal plans; those that do generally show higher profits and higher return on profits as well as other positive financial results (Robbins and Decenzo 2004). These studies also revealed that better planning leads to higher performance (Robbins and Decenzo 2004).

Sourcing Production

Book chapter

Global sourcing is the process of identifying, evaluating, negotiating, and configuring supply across multiple geographies in order to reduce costs, maximize performance, and mitigate risks. A structure is formed, linking raw goods suppliers, manufacturers, factory vendors, and, ultimately, retailers (Figure 4.1, next page). The role of a sourcing agent is to carry out the production plan in a reliable and cost-efficient way. The sourcing agent may work for the manufacturer or as a consultant who

Most people today are aware of the impact of labeling. The design of a label—its size, type, color, and placement—helps create brand recognition and builds brand loyalty. Yet label information must also meet certain federal regulations—labeling laws that require merchandise to be correctly labeled and displayed (Figure 6.1, next page).

The Technical Package

Book chapter

A technical package (tech-pack, TechPack, techpack, or teck pac) is an assemblage of information required by an apparel manufacturer to create, put together, and package a garment. In other words, the tech-pack encompasses all the garment specifications needed before mass production. The package can be simple or complex, depending on the user’s needs. The design of a technical package, also known as a production package, varies greatly within the industry. As mentioned previously, parts of the do

The Design Sheet

Book chapter

The design sheet, also called a cover or lead sheet, offers the user a first visual of the garment. The design sheet is akin to the cover of a school report, providing a look at what is to come. Much of the information contained on the design sheet is repeated on the tech-pack sheets that follow, although this depends somewhat on personal preference; not all designers will show both a front and back view of the garment on the first sheet, for example. Regardless of the information included, desig

The Illustration Sheet

Book chapter

The illustration sheet looks very similar to the design sheet. It can be eliminated if designers or production managers choose to give a more in-depth version of a design sheet. The advantage of an illustration sheet is that it clarifies the colorways, or color scheme, of any given design. As mentioned previously, the designer may choose to forgo the illustration sheet, simply showing the colors in small images on the side of the page (see Figure 7.1, page 74Building a Tech-Pack). However, the de
