Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions, has developed a new strategy to empower fashion and apparel, and automotive companies to succeed as they step into the Industry 4.0 era. Anchored in the digitalisation of industrial processes, from creation to production, Industry 4.0 is creating a new organisation of factories’ ecosystems.

Increasingly flexible with optimised resources, factories are propelling a new digitalised lifecycle for products that will benefit consumers. Furthermore, mass production is leaving increasing room for large-scale customised production, as well as providing quick-to-market, quality products expected by increasingly impatient and demanding customers. In order to face these changes, a digital value chain is essential to provide real-time connections between creative teams and product development teams, smart factories, suppliers, and consumers.

Reflecting Lectra’s new strategy is the launch of a Software as a Service (SaaS) offer, reinforced by cloud and developed since 2015. This offer, capitalising on data analyses and exploitation, will translate into even smarter, connected equipment and finely tuned integration between equipment, software and services.

New industry-specific services will reinforce the offer, enabling Lectra to continually improve customer processes. Initially tested in 2017 with select customers, some of whom have been involved with the offer since the beginning of the design, the new offer will be commercialised from 2018.

Daniel Harari, CEO, Lectra said, “To meet these new challenges, our customers can depend on our software and equipment offer, already compatible with Industry 4.0 principles, our deep knowledge of the industrial Internet of Things since 2007, and our teams’ expertise in specific industries. Thanks to these strong fundamentals, we are massively enriching our offer, leveraging the latest technologies and integrating best practices, to entrench Lectra’s position as an Industry 4.0 visionary.”

“Bringing increasing value to our customers, Lectra will increase the share of revenues dedicated to R&D to 10 per cent for the period from 2017 to 2019, representing a rise of about 50 per cent between 2016 and 2019. This way we can support our customers on their path towards operational excellence, indispensable if they are to succeed in the context of the fourth industrial revolution,” he added. (GK)
