New browser based version of the globally recognised, time-cost manufacturing standard for apparel brands and manufacturers
GSDCostv5 helps brands and sourcing companies to establish and optimise ‘International Standard Time Benchmarks’ for all sewn products, using standard motion codes and predetermined times. It is used at an early stage in the product development cycle, enabling design and cost variations to be assembled and assessed.
The stand-out feature of GSDCostV5, is the introduction of a globalised fair wage tool, which brings a new level of visibility and transparency to discussions on time, cost and compliance. Combining the international standard minute value (SMV) to produce any given style, with detailed factory efficiencies, contracted hours and the agreed wage rate, allows brands and manufacturers to quickly agree the wage allowance for any given order, in any factory in the world, and benchmark this against international fair wage standards.
Product development teams can explore ‘what-if’ scenarios with various product components to reduce the associated manufacturing costs and achieve a lower ‘in store’ price point. Costing teams can establish a technology and methodology policy for costing to eliminate subjectivity and guesswork. Brand ME teams can drive method improvements to mitigate rising labour costs and maintain ‘best practice’ consistency across different factories.
GSDCostV5 leverages the latest software architecture to deliver a highly intuitive SaaS solution, hosted in Microsoft AzureTM providing customers of all sizes with fast access from anywhere to a high performance, cost effective and scalable solution.
