The critical importance of digitizing your production shop floor

Unprecedented volatility, increasingly fragmented order books and a move to on-demand production, are driving greater complexity and margin pressure in the fashion supply chain. As manufacturers respond to these challenges, capturing and digitizing data in real time across end-to-end manufacturing processes is critical for driving actionable data insights and the feedback loop of performance to plan / standard which is fundamental to enabling early proactive actions, improving decision making and optimising operational and financial performance.

Why change?

Unlock the full potential of people, method and machine

The largely manual and siloed systems used to manage the complex end-to-end manufacturing processes are unsustainable, and simply do not provide the required level or speed of data insight that manufacturers and their buyers require. With multiple teams working (at speed) in parallel towards a shared goal, real-time data has never been more important. Manufacturers need to unlock the full potential of people, method and machine by optimising and digitizing key processes from machine inventory and line layout planning, to skills management, production tracking and quality management.
