2018 Software Developments in the Textile and Apparel Supply Chain - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 27, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2018--The “Software Developments in the Textile and Apparel Supply Chain” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The report begins by summarising the current types of application software and the way they are used in business today. This software and the method of its implementation - i.e. separate applications running in parallel - have become barriers to business success. However, this problem is attracting global attention, both from software developers and from the textile and apparel manufacturers that use their products.

The software has been used to automate manual business and industrial processes for many years, with the development of both Enterprise and Manufacturing and Cell Zone applications. However, some have questioned whether this automation is really more efficient than manual processes, because of the lack of integration between software products used for different areas of management. The use of software in this way is likely to have several negative business implications, causing pain not only to the specific departments concerned but to companies’ overall financial performance.

Whilst integrated software may, historically, have been difficult to achieve with the appropriate level of technical specialisation, the developing years of Industry 4.0, with its exploitation of AI and big data, have induced several vendors to move into this territory.

Implementing new software to bring about business improvements implies a fundamental process of change. To achieve an effective transition in a key business element that affects all departments, companies must have a well thought through project plan. In this, anything that touches on management needs to be monitored, to be preceded by a risk assessment, and to be accompanied by a backup alternative.
