So two months back i published “Clawing back Fabric Wastage’s Part I” This post is the second part introducingÂ IntelloBuyÂ to the equation of fabric wastage’s and how to make savings.
IntelloBuyÂ connects 24/7 withÂ IntelloCutÂ making sure that you always have the correct process loss added to your ordering of fabric for different product types.
What does this mean? Most factories don’t really know what the exact process loss is for the products that they manufacture, this is highlighted by the fact they just add a standard +/- 3% across all the orders for process losses in fabric length, damages, endloss, recuts and remnant pieces after completing an order. WithÂ IntelloCutÂ in operation in your factory you will be able to see exactly what your process loss is for different products, for example aÂ men’s short sleeve shirt, regular fit, 100% cotton may have an overall process loss of 1.2% (usingÂ IntelloCut) whereasÂ aÂ men’s long sleeve shirtÂ , regular fit, 100% cotton could have an overall process loss of 0.9% (usingÂ IntelloCut) even if both order fabrics were of the same width and the same shrinkages we would still expect a different process loss.
IntelloCutÂ is the master behind this, as it connects withÂ IntelloBuyÂ it gives your merchandisers or fabric purchasers the tools to be able to have historical data at there fingertips to ensure the most accurate amount of fabric is being purchased with the right process loss for the order.
Further more if your brands require you to make fabric bookings for hundreds of purchase orders in a short 24 hour timeframeÂ IntelloCutÂ can handle the calculations and make projected cut plans even if the actual order quantity is not available, again it will look at the historical data from all factory locations runningÂ IntelloCutÂ and be able to accurately review the orders of same style that have been Â completed (even season wise) It will also take into account the randoms or unknowns like order quantity, fabric width and shrinkage to give your the best possible result for booking fabrics.
More information can be provided on bothÂ IntelloCutÂ andÂ IntelloBuyÂ upon request, we would love the opportunity to prove to you that we can make some substantial savings in your organisation.
