Job-queue bottlenecks due to high volumes and multiple file formats
Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, leading apparel manufacturing and original design manufacturing (ODM) company Pan-Pacific processes an average of 590,000 garments daily at production facilities owned and operated by the group.
Growing production volumes were making it increasingly difficult to centrally manage the manufacturer’s marker-making activities. Balancing workloads was challenging because supervisors had no means to track individual team members’ progress. Because workers shared automated markers within a team, job queue bottlenecks caused processing delays. With multiple file formats to manage, Pan-Pacific also needed to improve efficiency by reducing time spent on file compatibility.
Faster marker-making with the processing power of cloud nesting
Workstations equipped with Diamino marker-making software were clearly no longer adequate to meet Pan-Pacific’s requirements. To shorten processing times, company management decided to relocate part of its marker-making activities from corporate headquarters to a shared service center in Hanoi, Vietnam.
After looking into competitor solutions, Pan-Pacific decided to migrate from Diamino desktop software to cloud-hosted marker-making solution Flex Offer by Lectra. In addition to enabling faster nesting and improving marker efficiency, the Lectra solution has allowed Pan-Pacific to decentralize pattern and marker operations. Files managed at headquarters can now be downloaded and processed remotely, at overseas production sites.
