As with other business management principles, SCM also applies to the textile and apparel industries.

In this study an attempt has been taken to develop a more effective supply chain for Bangladeshi RMG to enjoy competitive advantage in the global apparel business through analyzing the current supply chain and investigating the relationship among the players in the supply chain .In the conclusion recommendation has been made to exclude a party from the current SCM.
