abstract
Currently, migrant workers from rural areas come to the large cities of Vietnam to work in textile “sweat shops”. This study will examine if a delivery chain system can be applied to the textile industry in that country. A delivery chain system would mean the company would deliver loads of fabric, patterns, or clothing design information to workers in communities and on the due date, the company’s truck would pick the goods up and shift them to the next process. It is hypothesized that operating costs for textile manufacturers can be decreased by providing rural communities with the necessary equipment to produce products. This study will use email surveys and possibly phone surveys to Vietnamese managers and migrant workers in the textile industry in Hochiminh City as well as foreign clothing managers in America. The survey will collect the opinions of migrant workers regarding their working environment preferences. In addition, the surveys would gather managers’ viewpoints as to whether the delivery chain system would cut down operating costs for the company. If this study indicates that a delivery chain system is feasible in Vietnam, migrant workers’ may be able to remain in their home villages.
