Made to Stock t-shirt manufacturers: Made to Stock t-shirt manufacturers produce enough products and store the manufactured cloths before their final sale. This process’s success depends on the ability of the t-shirt manufacturer to forecast the market demand correctly. If the products are removed from the actual demand, it will face under- or over-production for that reason the company can face some losses. That’s why the made-to-stoke manufacturer has the most important parts to complete.

Made-to-order t-shirt manufacturer: This section is also like the made stoke sector, made to order manufacturers produce t-shirts only if they receive orders from customers or the garments own production team to make their design. The process of making production eliminates the necessity to forecast future demand for the products. MTO businesses have no chance to face overproduction or the process of company losses. But the MTO manufacturers have to face a long time between the initiation and completion of an order. In this process, a sudden increase in the current product demand can put additional pressure on the operations, which can take even higher times.

Made to assemble t-shirt manufacturer: Made to assemble manufacturers initially create the basic parts of a final good that can be quickly assembled when an order from a customer is received instead of immediately producing final products or cloths. MTA production reduces a lot of times for customer orders. The business could face lower demand for certain types of basic parts, but this process never faces a simple loss for the company or the production team and always update the right amount of products and update its products according to the market demand.
