Under the banner 'Lectra 4.0: Digitalizing and Connecting Your Value Chain', Lectra asserted its leadership as the trusted advisor to fashion, furniture and automotive companies undertaking digital transformation. Smart, connected supply chains are at the core of the fourth industrial revolution. In all industries using textiles, the intelligent factory requires a high degree of flexibility, maximum efficiency and optimal planning processes for a variety of production types, from mass production to on-demand production. These requirements are paramount to the future success of companies competing for business on Asian markets.
In 2017, China accounted for 46 per cent of global furniture production and is currently the world's premiere apparel exporter. With nearly 60 per cent of the world's millennials living in Asia, sustained demand for personalised, rapidly delivered products continues to drive the trend toward mass customisation. Product personalisation is rapidly becoming a top-of-mind concern for fashion and furniture industry decision-makers, as well as the optimisation of small-batch runs.
Launched for the first time in Asia at CISMA 2019, pioneering end-to-end solutions Fashion On Demand by Lectra and Furniture On Demand by Lectra automate the complete process from order processing to fabric cutting. Suited to the respective needs of each industry, the two solutions comprise Lectra's digital cutting platform and single-ply fabric cutting solution Virga. They allow users to manage their workflows seamlessly for both small series and customised order production. This enables manufacturers to readily switch from mass-production to small-batch runs, as well as optimise the product personalisation process in the cutting room.
Because fabric can account for up to 60-70 per cent of garment costs, Lectra has released additional versions of its cloud applications, to help fashion manufacturers in Asia make more informed development and bidding decisions. Quick Estimate generates fabric consumption simulations in seconds for accurate profitability projections throughout product development. During the RFQ process, Quick Nest marker-making software makes it possible to win new contracts by responding faster, with competitive pricing. Quick Nest furthermore brings speed and agility to production through parallel processing of marker lists.
CISMA 2019 also presented an opportune occasion for Lectra to reveal its new VectorAutomotive iP9 fabric-cutting solution. It is the first solution on the market to enable zero-buffer cutting on a wide variety of materials. For automotive suppliers, this amounts to hundreds of thousands of dollars in material savings annually when compared to other solutions, an increasingly important pathway to operational excellence.
To enable CISMA participants to project themselves into Lectra's vision of smart factory cutting operations, Lectra captivated audiences with demonstrations of its latest advanced-technology solutions.
"Despite the challenges currently faced by China, it remains the world's fastest growing major economy," said Javier Garcia, president, Asia-Pacific, Lectra. "Lectra has long had a finger on the pulse of Asia’s markets. We are ready to support manufacturers operating here as they meet Industry 4.0 objectives as fast as technology allows."
For companies that breathe life into our wardrobes, car interiors, furniture and more, Lectra is crafting the premium technologies that facilitate the digital transformation of their industry. Founded in 1973, today Lectra has 32 subsidiaries across the globe, serving customers in over 100 countries.
