Big data and the Internet of things have gradually entered the physical factory. In the future, the plant will realize high automation and intelligence, product intelligence, production automation, information flow and material flow integration, intelligent equipment and system, with the help of intelligent judgment and decision-making, and actively exchange information with other equipment, and can operate and allocate according to the actual situation without human intervention, Completely replace the traditional beltline.
For example, the production efficiency of children’s clothing will be greatly improved. The intelligent production process is adopted: data is imported into the panel, and after the version is generated by a computer, the intelligent terminal will automatically cut off materials according to the version data; The fabric is automatically transmitted to the intelligent cutting bed for automatic cutting; The cut pieces are sent to different mechanical arms on the production line for flow sewing.
The whole garment production line adopts an intelligent assembly line to realize the transformation from automation to intelligence, which significantly improves the production of unit production area. Meanwhile, it effectively solves the problems such as hard recruitment of labour force, the rapid increase of labour cost, overcapacity, fierce competition and increasing demand of customers.
There is no doubt that from small batch production to mass customization is the eternal theme. When the pace of production continues to accelerate and the market and customer orders change frequently, the complexity of the order and material management will inevitably increase unprecedentedly. When this happens, the factory is no longer efficient, coupled with the rise in labour prices, the shortage of technical personnel, material management and customer order management is difficult to be agile and transparent.
The future change of the garment manufacturing industry, and even the whole manufacturing industry, is no longer just simple manufacturing today, but the creation based on innovation, intelligent manufacturing, more coordinated production lines, more orderly material management, and more agile information feedback.
The next golden decade of made in China has begun, and the intelligent factory will bring us into the era of customized manufacturing.
