Simparel Expands Solutions Footprint with Next-Gen Real-Time Shop Floor Control

Share Article

By removing traditional infrastructure barriers and adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for the plant floor, Simparel SFC is making the many benefits of real-time production management more accessible and simpler to use for today’s sewn products and consumer goods manufacturers.

Simparel, Inc. (, the innovator in next-generation information technology for the fashion and consumer goods industries, is expanding its already extensive product suite with the launch of the all new Simparel® SFC real-time Shop Floor Control (SFC) solution. A state of the art twist on the decades-old SFC tools generally available in the market, the new system leverages wireless technology and off-the-shelf mobile devices to collect production data immediately as it occurs and help manufacturers better track and manage orders, productivity, incentive payroll, machine downtime and other vital processes and information. By reducing overall cost of ownership and making SFC simpler to use and deploy, Simparel SFC will empower companies with the real-time visibility and control they need to increase competitiveness and profitability.

According to Simparel Chief Operating Officer Roberto Mangual, “Without up to date information and visibility, today’s manufacturers are challenged to deliver the speed, transparency and service their customers demand. By simplifying system use and removing significant cost and setup barriers inherent with legacy SFC systems, we are making real-time shop floor management much more accessible and affordable. With Simparel SFC, everyone from small contractors to major brands can leverage the latest technologies to quickly achieve the many benefits of real-time visibility and control.”

Key among the business benefits of real-time shop floor control are increased worker productivity, reduced throughput time, improved off-standard cost control, excess cost savings, work in process inventory reduction, and enhanced customer service.

The new Simparel SFC solution leverages plug-in data collection technology powered by Georgia-based Shopfloor Support LLC. The system utilizes an innovative Android® app and Wi-Fi networking tools to collect production data and provide real-time feedback to workers and managers. This information can be integrated with Simparel ERP, as well as third-party engineering, payroll and other software systems to share, report and analyze performance.

“We are excited about the opportunities this innovative solution brings to both our clients and our business,” added Steve G. Vogel, Simparel Chief Executive Officer. “With so many companies taking a more hands-on approach to manufacturing, we saw an opportunity to drive even greater efficiency, quality and flexibility by adopting Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity for the entire plant floor and supply chain. We are already experiencing strong interest from new and existing customers.”
