Sri Lanka’s leading enterprise solution provider H One has launched a quality management solution tailormade to minimise defects in apparel manufacturing. RES.Q is a cloud-based IT solution that provides decision-makers with a 360 degree view of the factory floor. It uses data analytics to improve production quality, eliminate reporting time lags, enable faster and more accurate decision-making, and reduce waste. It can be used by anyone with minimal training, and easily adapted by apparel manufacturing businesses of any size - small, medium or large. It doesn’t require costly servers and can be set up in under a week. The platform is also 100 per cent paperless and functions via a device positioned with a supervisor at the end of each factory line.
The solution improves the overall cut-to-ship ratio faced by apparel manufacturers. The cut-to-ship ratio is a key performance indicator in any garment factory, and represents the losses incurred from the point a factory cuts pieces of a garment to fulfill an order to when it is shipped out to the customer. In Sri Lanka the average cut to ship ratio is 98 per cent.
With RES.Q manufacturers can cut back on this two per cent loss, for example, by reducing internal sewing line defects by 50 per cent and cutting the traditional ten per cent end of line defect rate by half.
