The Cicero group conducted a cost benefit analysis of restructuring a domestic apparel unit by shifting all operations to Asia and shrinking U.S. production and operations. Following this analysis, Cicero conducted satisfaction surveys with over 1,000 clients of this apparel vertical to determine if there were quality issues or other noticeable changes in the product after moving the production from the United States to China. Cicero conducted in-depth interviews with various store owners who supply the apparel line and analyzed the differences in cost, quality and arrival times. The quantitative analysis supported the initial strategy to move manufacturing and operations to Asia.
