The quick response quality management (QRQM) platform for the apparel supply chain is a cloud-based computing platform with the use of network connected tablet devices to capture, highlight, and upload product defects information by gesture control. The product defects information (e.g. photos and diagrams) will be stored in the cloud-based quality analysis server for the data analysis and quality management. Charts and tables on quality analysis will be generated. This platform takes a proactive approach of quality monitoring and alert, which could help garment manufacturers face the short lead time in the fast fashion supply chain.
