Fashion Supply Chain Management (FSCM) is an important topic in the modern fashion industry. In addition to the traditional functions of logistics management in fashion companies, which include inventory management, transportation management, and facility control, FSCM places a strong emphasis on collaboration and partnership among channel members along the fashion supply chain. Obviously, FSCM provides a very strong area for establishing a competitive edge for fashion companies. FASHION SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT: INDUSTRY AND BUSINESS ANALYSIS focuses on reporting both quantitative research on FSCM and exploratory studies on emerging supply chain management issues in the fashion industry. This reference will help both academicians and practitioners understand more about the latest development and solution schemes in FSCM, as it is a pioneering text which reports many important research results in quantitative FSCM.
