The critical importance of manufacturing excellence

Unprecedented volatility, increasingly fragmented order books and a move to on-demand production, is driving greater complexity and margin pressure in the fashion supply chain. As brands and manufacturers respond to these challenges, driving successful manufacturing excellence programs will depend on the digital transformation of business critical processes to drive data insights that are essential to sustainable supply chain partner performance and the achievement of brand strategic objectives.

Why change?

Digital transformation, a catalyst for sustainable supply chain partner performance

Despite investing in some form of ERP, most manufacturers still rely on largely manual methods, disconnected systems and excel spreadsheets to manage business critical manufacturing processes which have a disproportionate impact on operational and financial performance. This approach is inefficient, time consuming and unsustainable.

In order to respond to unprecedented industry challenges, and build the resilience, agility, speed, efficiency and sustainability that is critical to meeting brand strategic objectives, brand manufacturing excellence teams are working with key supply chain partners to optimise and digitize business critical processes.
