After conducting an in-depth analysis, Lectra experts worked with the company to create a customised action plan that would allow them to move all their cutting in-house and automate certain aspects of development and production. Once the changes had been made, the company was able to speed up its development process, reduce its fabric consumption by 5 per cent. This gave Maxwell the agility it needed to pursue its goals for expansion, according to a press release.
With Lectra's support, Maxwell was able to automate its pattern making, marker making, spreading, cut planning and cutting. Lectra's integrated solutions also streamlined communication across the company's different departments.
Lectra experts helped Maxwell Industries redefine the workflow in their cutting room based on lean methodology. The company has also been able to move all of its cutting, previously partially outsourced, in-house. Between automation and a new efficient process, Maxwell has reduced its fabric consumption by more than 5 per cent and seen a 1 per cent drop in rejections due to poor quality.
Kapil Pathare, director of Maxwell Industries said, “We outlined our specific challenges in production, pattern and marker making, and Lectra helped us address and find solutions for each one. Their experts walked us through a detailed project plan and explained the methodology behind it. Because workflow improved in the cutting room, it improved in sewing, which gave us a smooth process from beginning to end. Thanks to Lectra's patternmaking technology, we eliminated paper patterns, which saves us a great deal of time and fits in with our green initiative.” (GK)
