With the rapid rise in global manufacturing costs and risks, fashion and other sewn products retailers and brands are rethinking their supply chain strategies.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
CGS, a leading global provider of technology solutions, announced today the release of a new white paper, entitled “Sewn Products Manufacturing is Returning to the Americas.” To help companies address the challenge “Do You Have What it Takes to Seize the Opportunities?,” the report provides fashion and sewn products companies with insight on how they can seize the opportunities presented through reshoring and discusses the benefits they can achieve by bringing their operations back to the Americas.
“With the rapid rise in global manufacturing costs and risks, fashion and other sewn products retailers and brands are rethinking their supply chain strategies,” said Jim Hoerig, VP of Manufacturing Solutions at CGS and author of the paper. “At the same time, socially and environmentally conscious consumers and organizations are taking greater interest in where and how products are made.”
Among the topics discussed include the reasons why companies are returning to the Americas, how to leverage the latest technology to increase productivity and competitiveness, and managing “true production costs.” The report details how one company gained greater success by increasing productivity by 35% and cutting cycle time by 60%.
The white paper also illustrates how utilizing a Real-Time Shop Floor Control solution can enable manufacturers to reduce costs, increase productivity, enhance quality, and achieve sustainable success.
“To effectively compete and win in this new era of opportunity, sewn products producers must exhibit world-class speed, efficiency, and visibility,” said Hoerig. “To achieve this, manufacturers must take full advantage of the latest software and information technology for the factory floor.”
