DSCP sends out diskettes of Micromark pattern files to its Micromark-compatible contractors. These files as received by CAR require substantial preparation before the files are ready for production markermaking. This preparation translates to additional production time and cost, which can translate to higher manufacturing costs per item of clothing and longer lead times for new items. The purpose of this report is to document the preparation activities, time, and cost to CAR before markers can be produced. This information will contribute to DSCPs ability to evaluate its pattern delivery procedures and to assess the potential system-wide costs of delivering patterns in this format to other Micromark-compatible contractors.
