An intuitive product life cycle management (PLM) solution for fast, efficient product development and collaboration
VisionPLM is a flexible, browser-based solution that streamlines and integrates the key pre-production processes required for a style to be fully approved and production ready. Supporting both ODM and OEM manufacturers, and configured to reflect industry best practice, VisionPLM provides ‘one version of the truth’: from design, material and product development (including tech packs), to sampling, approvals, costing and PO tracking.
VisionPLM improves visibility, coordination, and control across the business and with supply chain partners (suppliers and buyers), ultimately increasing the speed and efficiency with which manufacturers can develop and produce new styles.
The launch of GSDCostV5 builds on a market-leading heritage as the international time-cost benchmark for costing and manufacturing excellence.
GSDCostV5 supports a more collaborative, transparent, efficient and sustainable apparel supply chain, taking time-cost benchmarking, costing optimisation and method improvement to a new level and placing people and fair wages at the heart of the recovery from the global pandemic.
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.
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.
GSDCostV5 launches with a native integration into the Res.Q shop floor suite of solutions providing a real-time, digital feedback loop of actual versus standard minute value at the operation level, highlighting variances and opportunities for proactive, continuous improvement.
A data-driven fabric buying solution for accurate fabric consumption
IntelloBuy is designed to help optimise fabric cost at the fabric estimation stage itself. It aids manufacturers in buying the most accurate amount of fabric for their orders, thus, reducing fabric cost.
IntelloBuy uses advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Big Data Analytics to solve the problems of complex new styles (fast fashion), shrinking lead time, and manual tools. It also solves the restrictions in accurate fabric booking due to incomplete information.
An advanced approach to fabric buying, intelloBuy looks-up the best fabric buying consumption from historical booking data to avoid any dead stock or short shipment, saving fabric cost at the fabric estimation stage.
A dynamic, highly visual production planning and control tool to optimise delivery, efficiency, and lead time
FastReactPlan is a dynamic planning and control tool which brings together capacity, critical path, and materials into a single, integrated system. The highly visual and flexible ‘drag and drop’ approach to planning allows effective master planning across multiple factories, as well as the detailed and accurate scheduling of manufacturing lines/ machines. Critical pre-production activities (e.g. samples and approvals), and material requirements are dynamically-driven in a LEAN pull system based on the latest plan, which supports the reduction of inventory and lead time.
FastReactPlan is typically interfaced with other business systems (e.g. ERP, PLM, inventory & shop floor). Sharing key data reduces data entry workload, improves accuracy and speeds up the planning process and response times. Developed specifically for fashion manufacturers of all sizes, FastReactPlan is quick to implement, configured to reflect industry best-practices and specific business requirements. It is proven to deliver significant and measurable improvements in speed, flexibility, and efficiency.
A real-time fabric planning solution for optimised fabric utilisation
IntelloCut is designed to give control over fabric usage in the cutting room. It optimises the processes of cutplan, lay plan and allocation, end bit usage and management, tracking, and reporting. intelloCut generates real-time optimised plans based on cutting floor feedback.
IntelloCut’s automated, closed-loop approach to fabric planning reduces the amount of effort and time spent on re-planning and at the same time maximises fabric utilisation.
Backed by artificial intelligence, intelloCut is suitable for fashion manufacturers of all types and sizes, which learns and advances with your cutting floor. All this to deliver an effortless approach to fabric utilisation.
