Lectra India hosts seminar on sustainability in fashion
Lectra, the IT partner for companies using fabrics and leather, hosted a seminar on “Drive Sustainable Production with Lectra Design to Manufacture” on February 21, 2018 in Tirupur, dedicated to mass manufacturers and exporters. Lectra is a leading provider of integrated technology solutions for fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials.

The seminar focused on how fashion companies can optimise performance of their cutting room operations leading to increase in equipment efficiency, and thus, increasing productivity in the cutting room.

Social and economic changes have transformed the way fashion is designed, developed, produced, and consumed. To keep up with the ever changing challenges, expanding markets and to design quality clothes, fashion companies need to adapt how they work. The event brought together the top exporters and mass manufacturers present in the region to exchange knowledge on the technology to optimise operations in the cutting room.

Prasenjeet Shambharkar, solutions consultant, Lectra India took the audience through the cutting room importance and how one can improvise to achieve efficiency in the cutting room by enabling changes and monitoring the task.

Somina Mehrotra, field marketing manager, Lectra India also explained the importance of service contracts and how it actually benefits a customer along with discussing the importance of genuine consumables and spares.

In the current scenario, with growing labour issues, fashion companies realise that there is no longer a cost advantage this industry had a few years ago and the defined solution that looms up is an organisation’s ability to respond to this change and adapt automation. Investing early in the lifecycle also gives them the competitive edge in business apart from faster ROI on technology investments. With Industry 4.0, the focus is creating smart factories with importance on interoperability where machines, devices, sensors & people connect and communicate with one another increasing serviceability, predictability.

Lectra, with over a decade experience in industrial Internet of things (IoT), combined with its expertise in software solutions to automate and optimise design and development of fashion collections, is in a formidable position to help customers step into this new industrial age. (GK)
