Preventing Escapes in Luxury Goods Manufacturing With Apps

📅 Date:

🔖 Topics: Product Escapes, Digital Work Instructions

🏭 Vertical: Apparel

🏢 Organizations: Tulip

There are two main causes of escapes. The first is a quality issue in a manufacturer’s production line — and the second is a lack of material and production data to detect and mitigate these quality issues in real time. Quality issues occur in your production line when your workers follow inconsistent processes and turn out variances of the same product. Another reason why escapes occur is the inability to detect quality issues early on, most commonly due to a lack of operational and material tracking data.

Unlike many other sectors, luxury goods manufacturing has a highly manual production process. After all, it’s the handmade quality that attracts buyers and justifies the premium price. While manufacturers need to maintain the human element in their production process, they also need to solve the challenge of inconsistent quality and late detection of defects. By adopting digital tools such as digital work instructions, luxury goods manufacturers can start building human-centric operations in which technologies serve to augment their employees’ skills — enabling them to work faster, better, and more efficiently.

IT vs. OT: The Difference Between Information Technology and Operational Technology

📅 Date:

🔖 Topics: IT OT Convergence

🏢 Organizations: Tulip

For organizations with a heavy reliance on OT assets, including manufacturers, IT/OT convergence offers the potential for cost savings and resource efficiencies. It allows insights provided through sales and inventory data to be fed into the operational side of the business, enabling manufacturing equipment and power use to be optimized.

When IT and OT are seamlessly integrated, factory operators have more direct control over their manufacturing processes and the ability to monitor their operations. They can easily analyze data from complex systems in real-time, unleashing a new level of improved decision-making and operational efficiency.
