This exploratory study addresses a conceptual supply chain management (SCM) model for ready-made garments (RMG) industry of Bangladesh. As different parties i.e. the suppliers, manufacturers, buyers etc. are involved in different phases of supply chain of this industry, every stage (procurement, manufacturing, replenishment, customer order) is conflicting with its next stage with the goals and objectives. In this conceptual model, attempts have been taken to create the layout and design of the procurement of raw materials, work-in-process, inventory and finished goods from various sources to the ultimate consumer in this garment business. This framework provides the opportunity to integrate and optimize the supply chain process of RMG industry of Bangladesh. The proposed conceptual framework for the RMG industry provides a novel approach for decision makers of supply chain components to review and appraise the performance toward fulfillment of ultimate goals, i.e. producing high-quality garments product, and reducing the wastage of human labor, time and money.
