How to build a fast, efficient and sustainable relationship between brands and vendors!

As apparel industry continues to face signi­ficant economic and geopolitical challenges, developing and executing a strategy to adapt and survive will be a top priority. Old ways of working are no longer sustainable and manufacturers that digitally transform their critical business processes will reap long-term rewards.

In this 2-hour webinar, Coats Digital, in association with Lululemon, is showcasing how a standardised approach to garment Standard Minute Values (SMVs) calculations and production methods could deliver significant and measurable benefits – both for brands and their suppliers.

The online webinar would cover the following topics:

  • How to improve quality efficiency
  • How to build a sustainable relationship with brands
  • Scientific and standardised approach to garment SMV calculations, costings, and delivery timelines


GSDCost is the international standard for establishing and optimising accurate method-time-cost benchmarks for garment costing optimisation and sustainable manufacturing excellence.

GSDCost supports a more collaborative, transparent and sustainable supply chain, in which brands and manufacturers establish and optimise ‘International Standard Time Benchmarks’ using standard motion codes and predetermined times. This use of a common language and standards supports accurate cost prediction, fact based negotiation, and a more efficient garment manufacturing process, putting people and fair wages at the heart of the fashion supply chain. Join the online seminar to learn about how to reduce SMVs, improve OTDP and efficiencies and manage costs more effectively.  Register Now!
