What are the advantages and disadvantages to using the Shirt Tag Piece System (ST_)?
The main advantage is that by using this system, no tags will go to waste, which means more savings in the long run. A cleaner would select the style that tag they are going to use. They would then choose the colors that would designate the particular days of the week. They would then purchase the #1- #10 tags.
If a customer brought in 2 articles of clothing, the #2 tag would be used. The master tag would be attached to the invoice, with the other 2 tags being attached to the actual articles of clothing. This way, no tags are being thrown out.
The main disadvantage would be the high start up cost to implement this system. However, in the long run, money is saved because fewer tags are being thrown out.
