The Indian subsidiary of France-based Lectra – a leading fashion, textile, technical textile and automotive technology company – organised a webinar on ‘Increase Speed to Market and Maximise Profitability using the Power of the Cloud’.
The focus of the webinar was to explain the apparel industry stakeholders the need for fabric optimisation in factories to maximise profitability. Suraj Niranjan, Marketing Head, Lectra India along with Rajeev Sharma, solution consultant, Lectra India steered the discussion and presentation.
It’s worth mentioning here that being ‘First to Consumers’ with wide range of quality products that are priced right is the key to success in the fashion market during this uncertain time.
According to Lectra India, the product development and production teams often struggle to bring innovative and cost-effective apparel products to the market quickly.
“With around 40-60 per cent of the cost of the garment being spent on fabrics, it has become significant to save every square inch of fabric in order to secure profit margins and stay ahead of the competition,” says Lectra India.
Rajeev Sharma further sheds light on Lectra’s Cloud Nesting Solution, Quick Nest using which apparel companies can get the maximum output of their fabric by accurately estimating their fabric consumption.
Simultaneously, Diamino allows cutting room to automatically process markers to further create the most cost-efficient fabric layouts through its cloud application Quick Nest.
“Imagine the fabric saving and the amount of cost indulged in it in big volume orders, if right technology is implemented rightly. Lectra Diamino does it efficiently,’ explains Rajeev.
Further, Quick Nest collaborates and shares resources across factories. Its cloud-based application helps connect multiple factories with their own marker rooms or centralised marker room with multiple factories.
“Moreover, the factories can set their own KPIs as well as measurable objectives that can boost overall process efficiency,” concludes Rajeev.
