There are so many factors that affect to use of outsourcing methods. The most important of them is to decreasing the costs. To use outsourcing for lower costs causes to companies’ production process or some part of this is made by the other companies. And that makes the company smaller. Actually, this situation means; instead of making investment of working with so many employees, to take advantage of some companies that make the same job by using outsourcing. So companies will be free of labor costs and will be able to respond their costumer’s requests. Trying to respond costumers’ needs when making big investments and working with too many employees, brings high risks economically. Today there is a global economical crisis all over the world and costumers’ requests and expectations are changing quickly. Also production diversity is becoming more. So, the companies which can’t catch those changes are producing under their production capacities. This situation makes lower their capacity utilization rates. In this opinion, to use outsourcing is an effective method to eliminate the risk.
In this work; firstly general information about outsourcing methods, the reasons which expose outsourcing methods and capacity utilization rate will be told. After that information which obtains as a result of a survey which was done in apparel companies will be appreciated. And the relation between using outsourcing methods and ratio of using capacity in apparel companies will be worked to fix.
