How to keep up with a booming workwear and protective clothing market
Garment manufacturers seeking to benefit from the rapid growth and activity of the workwear and protective clothing market will need to keep up with production demands and quality expectations by optimizing its production process with the latest digital, agile, and collaborative solutions.
A unique challenge of producing workwear and protective clothing is that workwear needs to be certified. Developing a single garment for user comfort, that is suitable to protect the wearer against multi-hazard environments, such as fires and chemical splashes, is a product design and development challenge that becomes more complex as the amount of requirements and number of participants in the overall development process increases.
Efficient production planning and optimal nesting strategy require the ability to adjust quickly to various fabric handling specifications. The key to success is optimizing fabric handling requirements and production rules by embracing digital, agile, and collaborative solutions to overcome specific material, product development and production challenges.
