      Any past production lot.

    Correct Answer
    A. The Bulk Production Standard assigned for that specific item-color. However, difference measurements must also be done against the TM Color Standard for communication/comparison purposes.
    Explanation
    Subsequent lots MUST be instrumentally and/or visually comparable to the Bulk Production Standard. If a subsequent lot does NOT match the Bulk Production Standard, it must be internally rejected even if it is a good match to the TM Color Standard.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Why is it important that TM production colors are consistent from lot-to-lot and season-to-season? (select all correct answers)

    • A.

      Team Apparel styles carry-over for multiple seasons. The color must remain consistent for the lifetime of the style.

    • B.

      Team Apparel styles are often uniforms, worn by all members of a sports team at the same time. Uniforms must have *uniform* color.

    • C.

      A Team Apparel order shipment to a single Nike customer may contain garments produced in two or more different seasons. Nike customers expect all garments of the same style to be the same color.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Team Apparel styles carry-over for multiple seasons. The color must remain consistent for the lifetime of the style.
    B. Team Apparel styles are often uniforms, worn by all members of a sports team at the same time. Uniforms must have *uniform* color.
    C. A Team Apparel order shipment to a single Nike customer may contain garments produced in two or more different seasons. Nike customers expect all garments of the same style to be the same color.
    Explanation
    It is important that TM production colors are consistent from lot-to-lot and season-to-season because Team Apparel styles carry-over for multiple seasons and the color must remain consistent for the lifetime of the style. Additionally, Team Apparel styles are often uniforms worn by all members of a sports team at the same time, so uniforms must have a uniform color. Furthermore, a Team Apparel order shipment to a single Nike customer may contain garments produced in two or more different seasons, and Nike customers expect all garments of the same style to be the same color.

    Suppose IM# 123456 is a spectro-readable fabric that has trouble achieving bright colors while still meeting Nike’s colorfastness requirements. Thus the Bulk Production Standard for IM# 123456-49V TM Royal (approved by Boolim) gives dLCH measurements of 0.20/-3.41/-1.61, respectively, when measured against the TM Color Standard.A subsequent lot of IM# 123456-49V TM Royal is dyed. The dyehouse technician goes to the lightbox to visually review a sample of the dyed lot. What should she VISUALLY compare the sample against?

    • A.

      Both the TM Color Standard and the approved lab dip.

    • B.

      She should only review it against the Bulk Production Standard. There is no need to review it against anything else.

    • C.

      Both the Bulk Production Standards and the approved lab dip.

    • D.

      It must be reviewed against the Bulk Production Standard. In addition, both the subsequent lot sample and the Bulk Production Standard should be compared against the TM Color Standard TOGETHER to ensure that both swatches are equally comparable to the TM Color Standard.

    Correct Answer
    D. It must be reviewed against the Bulk Production Standard. In addition, both the subsequent lot sample and the Bulk Production Standard should be compared against the TM Color Standard TOGETHER to ensure that both swatches are equally comparable to the TM Color Standard.
    Explanation
    In addition to reviewing the subsequent lot against the Bulk Production Standard, both the subsequent lot and the Bulk Production Standard should be compared against the TM Color Standard TOGETHER to ensure that both swatches (the subsequent lot and the Bulk Production Standard) are *equally comparable* to the TM Color Standard.

    Note that there is no need to review the subsequent lot against the approved lab dip.

    Let's continue using the scenario described in Question 10: Suppose IM# 123456 is a spectro-readable fabric that has trouble achieving bright colors while still meeting Nike’s colorfastness requirements. Thus the Bulk Production Standard for IM# 123456-49V TM Royal (approved by Boolim) gives dLCH measurements of 0.20/-3.41/-1.61, respectively, when measured against the TM Color Standard.A subsequent lot of IM# 123456-49V TM Royal is dyed. Upon proper visual review, the dyehouse technician finds that the subsequent lot is visually much lighter than the Bulk Production Standard. What should be done?

    • A.

      The lot should be shipped to the factory immediately.

    • B.

      The lot should be shipped to the factory only after its measurements are taken with the spectrophotometer.

    • C.

      The lot should be internally rejected.

    • D.

      The lot should be sent to Boolim for rejection.

    Correct Answer
    C. The lot should be internally rejected.
    Explanation
    If a subsequent lot clearly does not visually match the Bulk Production Standard, it must be internally rejected.

    Had this been a "borderline" case, after obtaining its spectral readings, the vendor may request that Boolim review the lot for potential acceptance. In this case, however, the lot was "much lighter" than the Bulk Production Standard; asking Boolim to review this lot would be a waste of time as their Colorist would be sure to reject it.

    Let's AGAIN continue using the scenario described in Question 10: Suppose IM# 123456 is a spectro-readable fabric that has trouble achieving bright colors while still meeting Nike’s colorfastness requirements. Thus the Bulk Production Standard for IM# 123456-49V TM Royal (approved by Boolim) gives dLCH measurements of 0.20/-3.41/-1.61, respectively, when measured against the TM Color Standard.A subsequent lot of IM# 123456-49V TM Royal is dyed. Upon measuring a sample of the lot against the TM Color Standard, the dLCH measurements are as follows: 0.05/-3.24/0.44. Should the lot be shipped to the garment factory?

    • A.

      No, the lot should not be shipped. But if the technician's visual assessment reveals a better match to the Bulk Production Standard than the spectro readings suggest, the vendor can request that Boolim review the lot for possible acceptance.

    • B.

      If the technician thinks the lot is a fair match to the Bulk Production Standard, the vendor can ship the lot immediately.

    • C.

      The dLCH values of the lot are virtually identical to those of the Bulk Production Standard. So yes, the lot can be shipped.

    • D.

      It depends on how urgently this dye lot is needed.

    Correct Answer
    A. No, the lot should not be shipped. But if the technician's visual assessment reveals a better match to the Bulk Production Standard than the spectro readings suggest, the vendor can request that Boolim review the lot for possible acceptance.
    Explanation
    While the lot's dL and dC values are comparable to those of the Bulk Production Standard, their dH values have an overall difference of 2.04, which is significant. If the visual assessment suggests that the lot is a better match to the Bulk Production Standard than the spectral reading imply, the vendor can ask Boolim to review the lot. But the shipment must be put ON HOLD until Boolim confirms acceptance.
