May '08
Fast React Systems and Industry Forum are pleased to announce a co-operation to examine the use of the latest information technology as an aid to improve supply chain performance.

The co-operation will involve a series of workshops taking a look at the issues faced by fashion businesses and the principles that enable a reduction in speed to market.

The first of these workshops, entitled 'Fast Fashion, Critical Paths & Effective Management of Fast Supply Chains', will be held on June 24th at the BCIA Boardroom, 5 Portland Place, London.

The workshop will provide delegates with the opportunity to learn from best practice; giving valuable insight into the key issue of how to achieve speed to market and short turnarounds from concept to delivery to the consumer.

The 'Fast Fashion' model will be examined, looking at examples such as Zara and New Look, plus what can be done to achieve effective critical path monitoring and flexibility within the supply chain.

Reducing time to market and improving responsiveness to customer demand are key issues and will be imperative for the survival and growth of apparel and footwear businesses.

Using case studies and team activities, the workshop will demonstrate how retailers and manufacturers can improve their own speed to market, manage critical path exceptions and meet the challenges that are faced in fast moving fashion industry.

'Fast Fashion, Critical Paths & Effective Management of Fast Supply Chains' is aimed at all functional areas within the supply chain and is relevant both to senior management and the design, buying, merchandising and technical teams operating in international supply chains in the different fashion market sectors.

Fast React specialise in the provision of Planning, Sourcing and Critical Path solutions for the Apparel marketplace. Industry Forum Services is the commercial arm of the Industry Forum, the government and industry sponsored project to develop best practice in supply chain management from product creation through to delivery to the consumer.
