Real-Time Data Drives Better Decisions and Increases Productivity on the Manufacturing Floor

In fashion and soft goods manufacturing, customer relationships are built on keeping a promise to deliver the right products at the right time and the right price. Most work in a sewing operation is manual, so it is easy to see how labor productivity and performance directly impact product cost, quality and availability.

Effective workforce management is key to meeting customer expectations. Unfortunately, the majority of fashion and home goods brands lack real-time visibility into their manufacturing operations. Enter Aptean Apparel Shop Floor Control, which tracks the progress of production throughout your sewing operation, giving supervisors, managers and workers real-time information and notifications regarding WIP, including many aspects of workforce management such as employee productivity, labor costs, and pay rates.

Streamline your production processes and increase productivity on the manufacturing floor with shop floor control. Find out how, now.
