In 1990, The Textile Institute published a book, Quick Response In Apparel Manufacturing, written by one of the present authors (Hunter, 1990). It was an account of the genesis of QR and its development in the years 1984-1988. Subsequently to this paper, a research program was started at the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University, using computer simulation to make quantitative estimates of the value of QR processes. This new book presents the results of this research and other subsequent analyses by major corporations on quick response.
Chapters include: Clothing Pipeline Fundamentals; Meeting Consumer Demand; What is QR; Elements and Fundamentals of QR; QR and the Retailer - Partnerships and Performance; QR and the Retailer - Simulation; QR and the Retailer - Sourcing; QR and the Retailer - Applications; QR and the Garment Manufacturer; QR and the Garment Manufacturer - Simulation Studies; QR and the Vertically Integrated Manufacturer: A Case Study; QR and the Textile Producer; Implementing QR - What to do; How to do it - An Evaluation Matrix.
