Majority of the factories in the fashion industry have not made a move towards the digital realm. Some everyday challenges that such factories face include decrease in production efficiency, tedious manual data checking, lack of real time production data and limited visibility of defects.
Digitization of factory processes is the way forward to tackle these supply chain inefficiencies. It's the era of combining traditional manufacturing with smart technology. With Zilingo Production Software there’s room for both. We empower brands by digitizing the manufacturing process which contributes to increased efficiency in production output, reduction in waste and defects, and empowerment of workers through automation of live reports on factory floors. Here are 5 ways Zilingo can help you integrate technology into your supply chain:
1. Ensuring Transparency & Empowering workers
A swift turn towards automation has resulted in operational visibility on factory floors for factory owners and workers. Zilingo Production Software provides effective and economical solutions to empower the workers while simultaneously improving production output through transparency. Our centralized dashboards provide line managers with real time insights on production output across garment categories on an hourly basis. There is monitoring and analyzing of why a particular line can’t achieve the production target, post which immediate feedback is given to the factory supervisors. This way production can also be understood better by all factory personnel along with prompt solutions to prompt issues without hampering anybody's time, efficiency and productivity.
2. Access to real time factory reports from anywhere, anytime
Using the right supply chain technology plays a huge role in the industry today especially for competitors to outdo each other. Digitization of the production processes not only empowers factory workers to find product defects but to also be able to monitor production lines through a simple click from any device. There is no need to be seated behind a factory desk. Zilingo’s in depth Analytics App is equipped with performance tracking anytime, anywhere from the floor until products leave the factory door.It helps management make impactful decisions to improve efficiency through visibility on production output from wherever.
The Future of ‘Smart Factory’ lies in ‘Smart Technology’ which is critical in streamlining and innovating the manufacturing process. Especially with the majority of factories in the fashion industry not being digitized, the right supply chain technology can aid in solving critical issues of factories such as limited visibility of defects. With Zilingo’s easy to use Production Software QC Managers can now tag errors using a traffic light system which helps a great deal in product quality testing. This is also where Zilingo’s heat map feature comes into use. With this feature, factory personnel can successfully sort out every defective garment and can generate a daily defects report.
