1. Apparel Manufacturing: An Overview
Apparel manufacturing is a challenging business. Because many countries outside the United States have cheaper labor costs, manufacturers in the U.S. must be extremely labor efficient in order to compete effectively. As in every business, although technologies change there are basic structural and organizational steps that are necessary for operating an apparel business successfully. This program features on-site photography and a graphic presentation, which provides an overview of what's involved in running an apparel manufacturing business.
