An initiative called PPE Fast Start to support manufactures switching part of the production facilities and supply chains to help address the global shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been launched by Coats Digital, the software business of Coats PLC, Uxbridge/UK.
There are several PPE versions in class software solutions for apparel manufacturers. The market leading FastReactPlan production planning and control solution has a Fast Start for PPE version. It provides manufacturers with a highly visual, intuitive solution which supports a fast, detailed and accurate order confirmation process as well as an optimized production plan.
Moreover there is a Fast Start for PPE version of GSDCost, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) accredited fact-based solution to establish and optimize accurate time and cost benchmarks for garment costing enabling staff with little or no manufacturing expertise to develop a “time-cost-analysis” for selected PPE products.
There is also a Fast Start for PPE version of IntelloCut, the real-time, automated fabric planning solution for optimized fabric utilization. The company has reduced the implementation costs to ensure that the customers have software solutions to manage the business and mitigate the impact of coronavirus.
