Rapid developments in international competition have obliged textile enterprises to take new approaches in order to gain a competitive advantage. Nowadays, enterprises are placing more importance on creating a structure in which the expectations of consumers are significant. The old approach of '' What I produce, I can sell '' is being left behind. The limits of acceptable quality levels for the enterprises have fallen back down to critical points due to the effects of liberal policies in international markets. We can see this as a result of the effectiveness of quality control, prevention and valuation from procurement, as well as customer services. Statistical quality control applications are gaining in importance because the textile & apparel sector is a sector in which consumer expectations and preferences are of primary importance.
