In any business critical path management is a method for identifying, scheduling and dealing with tasks that directly affect a project’s due date. Unlike project tasks that have some space for wiggle room, critical path tasks have absolutely no slack. As a result, if a critical path task deliverable is late by even one day, the project won’t be completed on time.
For the fashion business, a critical path measures the time and process involved in creating a garment or collection, from concept to creation. It is a timeline that reflects not only the anticipated delivery date of the designer’s seasonal collection but also what steps are needed to be accomplished in order to be completed and for the designer to present the collection and fulfil deliveries.
