The UK’s textile and clothing industry is worth almost £9 billion to the country’s economy

The UK’s textile and clothing industry is worth almost £9 billion to the country’s economy – and its value is growing. The sector also supports more than 90,000 jobs, with more positions being created every year.

Manufacturing businesses working in this sector, however, must overcome a number of unique challenges in order to achieve and maintain success. Together, these obstacles can make it difficult for factory managers to analyse, plan, schedule and execute operations.

Complex supply chains

Every business in the fashion and textile industry makes up one part of a complex supply chain that often spreads across countries and even continents. International outsourcing is now the norm.

Wide geographic dispersal

Clothing and the related items must also be distributed widely across various markets, each of which has its own standards and regulatory considerations.

Sustainability and ethical concerns

The pressure to balance cost-efficiency with ethical responsibilities has grown in recent years, with manufacturers forced to live up to consumer expectations when it comes to both value and moral duty.

Varied workforces

With so many different cogs in the fashion manufacturing machine, workforces are particularly diverse. Companies must manage the performance and morale of a mix of skilled and unskilled labourers, working both full and part-time.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.

LYNQ is built to complement the best-of-breed ERP systems your company already relies on, and can improve operations in a number of ways.

  • Become paperless on your shop floor and minimise waste with the help of online messaging, document and alert systems.
  • Keep track of product quality with measurements delivered in real-time from the factory floor. This allows you to identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Gain complete visibility of employee and machine performance, making it possible to optimise processes and streamline equipment and workforce resources.
  • Highlight long-term performance trends across the factory floor to provide motivation for year-on-year growth.

LYNQ’s comprehensive solution is already in use across the textile and clothing industry to increase efficiency, productivity and profitability.
