Fashion Industry Time and Action Calendar

The fashion industry topic of the day is time and action calendars.  This sort of planning tool is a critical component utilized by clothing companies on a weekly or possibly daily basis.  Organizing & maintaining an appropriate as well as accurate T&A plan is crucial for success.

First of all, “What is a fashion industry time and action calendar?”  If you are not certain the answer to that question we suggest you read the fashion industry time and action calendar term here on Apparel Search.  That would be a good first step.  In summary, a Time & Action Calendar can be used for certain stages or the entire product development process.  It is a method to know if the delivery date requirements for the final product will be met.

Here are a few educational resources that may help you further.

The pre-production and production process has many steps that need to be carefully followed in order to manage the timely production of apparel, footwear, or accessories.  Garment companies that wish to avoid buyer cancelations or chargebacks, need to make certain to ship product on the agreed upon dates.  In order to make this happen, clothes companies need to manage the schedule for 1st patterns, fabric purchases, trim delivery deadlines, etc.  If you are a fashion designer and plan on presenting your collection at Fashion Week, you better make 100% certain that the clothing needed to be worn by the models arrives on time.  If you are planning a trade show event, line launch, or if you have a order from a buyer, you must make sure everything rungs smoothly and on time.  Stay on track, stay organized, and make sure you have enough time to complete each of the required stages of design, production, and delivery.
