Retail supply chain effects of digital product fitting on product returns
Paper in proceeding, 2020

One factor that affects product returns is fit uncertainty – when customers have difficulties evaluating the fit of a product pre-purchase. This paper determines the proportion of returns arising from fit uncertainty when end-customers order fashion shoes online and assesses the supply chain effects of fit-related returns and how digital product fitting technology can mitigate fit-related returns.
