Solution:

IntelloCut records and reconciles all the fabric data. At Song Hong, IntelloCut automated the process of making manual lay slips and lay plan reports through its auto-generated reports saving time and effort of the Song Hong team.

Process 2: End-bit utilisation

Challenge:

Accountability of end-bits and correct usage is difficult to collate manually, especially when there are multiple orders running on the floor.

Solution:

Through IntelloCut, the system automatically plans the generated end-bits and with the end-bit management process setup done during the implementation, it gets easier for the factory to utilise end-bits and improve their fabric utilisation.

Process 3: Wastage tracking and identification

Challenge:

In order to achieve better utilisation of fabric, wastage tracking becomes an important factor. The factory needed to have better knowledge and impact of avoidable wastage.

Solution:

IntelloCut accounts for all the wastage on the cutting floor and reconciles the data in the reports that can be generated product-wise, customer-wise and style-wise for any desired date range, giving the management complete visibility and tracking of wastage. The implementation team has set up on the floor process to keep a control check on avoidable and non-avoidable wastage.

Process 4: Live consumption visibility

Challenge:

Production pressure and daily workload make it gets difficult to follow the manual reporting structure in order to track down Consumptions – Order Wise/Lay Wise.

Solution:

With the live data feedback mechanism of IntelloCut, all the reports are automatically updated after every lay completion, giving the management visibility of running consumption which further helps in taking accurate decisions to handle advance on-floor planning and execution.

“IntelloCut helped us decrease 60% of the time required for making a cut-plan. It also pointed out the difference between the Production Consumption and Achieved Consumption, which provided us with a picture for consumption adjustment for the next orders, respectively.”

“IntelloCut also provided timely reports – helping the factory teams with tracking the actual received fabric along with the total fabric used. Thank you to the IntelloCut team for bringing us such a good solution with prompt support.”

Process 5: Buying trend visibility

Challenge:

The management wanted to see the clear metric between the booking consumption and on-floor consumption to identify the scope of cost reduction.

Solution:

With IntelloCut, the management gets clear visibility on the defined KPIs such as booking and actual consumption gap, on a weekly basis. This trend is visible in system-generated Buying Summary and KPI Reports. In a year of using IntelloCut, all three factories have observed a gap of 1% from their booking to actual consumption.

Return on investment
