With its aim, the buyers tend to defer buying decision to align with frequent changes in fashion trend and related colour aesthetic to maximize the retail while maintaining the lower inventory levels. With this situation, the garment manufactures required to re-visit garment manufacturing process and implemented new manufacturing systems such as lean manufacturing practices and other operating systems to shorten the production life cycle. Color approval process is one of the key activities and it is identified as nonproductive activity consume considerable time period in the total buying cycle. The objective of the study is to discover a methodology to eliminate color approval process and related timelines by implementing modem technology available. The research is carried out with a statistical analysis to find a numerical value which able to transform through the electronic media by replacing a visual judgment instantly to a decision maker. After a comprehensive literature review, the color difference (the symbol of DE) is identified as the numerical value to transform the decision of accepting the color, which is 0.806 for main raw material used for intimate apparels selected in this study.
