Cambodia Garment Wage ≠ LIving Wage

Optimization Journeys

these are the day to day accounts of companies as they make their way along their optimization journeys - their problems, their victories, and their discoveries.

The Optimization Journey Blogs in this section are written by the owners and the managers of AMC's customers which have agreed to participate in putting their daily optimization journey on the web. These participating companies post directly their daily experiences and problems.  AMC's teams of consultants and contributors are able to provide guidance and feedback in real time through comments in each customer' private blog.  This provides a collaborative approach where AMC can field an entire team representing diverse disciplines.  AMC is able to is provide its international expertise no matter from which location or time zone the AMC team member is currently in.  The benefit to the factory is that it doesn't need to wait until the next scheduled visit by AMC for advice, and, more importantly, the next actual visit to the factory is greatly facilitied by AMC already understanding the current situation, already up-to-speed since its last visit.
