Do you have the right tools to manage the difficulties of patterned fabrics and overcome the challenges of material constraints? Are you saving time, preventing errors and optimizing the expertise of highly skilled labor? Learn how digitalization enables you to achieve superior product quality and consistency by gaining greater control of your cutting preparation and execution process.
Why digitalization matters
Advances in digital technology and analytics enable fashion companies to win new customers and sell more to existing customers by developing and delivering faster the innovative products that consumers demand. Digitalization of the cutting room enables fashion manufacturers to strike the right balance of production, operations and cost management optimization to overcome material constraints and patterned fabric challenges. The result is a streamlined workflow and unmatched ability to meet market demand for a wider variety of material types and fabrics of greater pattern complexity without compromising on quality, comfort, cost, or delivery speed.
Explore the benefits of digitalization
With the right tools, it is easy to manage and control complexity in the design-to-production process. The reliability and consistency of digitalization and automation in the cutting preparation and execution process, enables fashion manufacturers to reduce labor costs, reliance on difficult to source labor expertise, and cut complex and patterned fabrics as quickly and effortlessly as plain materials.
Is your cutting room equipped to maximize efficiency, minimize waste, and increase productivity?
1. Overcome product complexity challenges and accelerate production speed
The digital cutting room enables product development teams to manage and optimize non-standard processes and handle more types of fabrics. Simplifying product complexity results in producing more products faster at a lower cost.
2. Improve product quality and win more contracts
Ensuring quality during production and distribution is dependent on end-to-end transparency throughout the supply chain and real-time communication between cutting equipment, software, employees and third party partners. The digital cutting room organizes supply chain processes to work better together to achieve product quality and consistency throughout the entire production process. The reward is retaining existing contracts, winning new contracts and growing market share.
3. Minimize material waste and reduce production costs
By embracing digitalization, fashion executives are able to maximize raw material consumption by making accurate cost simulations for fabric purchases. Designers can play out various “what if” scenarios of material consumption on the products they design by optimizing the placement of fabrics to minimize the amount of waste and reduce costs.
4. Increase operational efficiency and boost productivity
Cutting room digitalization empowers executives to boost the efficiency of their cutting machines, materials and the performance of their employees. Sensors, optics and automation capabilities facilitate predictive maintenance; enable real-time monitoring of material usage, and re-directs employees to more valuable tasks. The result is a significant reduction in equipment downtime, greater material yield and higher productivity
Fashion manufacturers first to embrace digitalization, data intelligence, and the connectivity of their cutting equipment will gain greater control over their workflows and stay ahead of their competition.
