Expand output while staying efficient with apparel manufacturing software

Managing your apparel manufacturing business with spreadsheets or a whiteboard is doable when you only receive a few orders per day, but what happens when demand increases and your company begins expanding? In the world of manufacturing, it is difficult to find a more competitive industry than garment manufacturing. Apparel manufacturers often have a broad range of products with warehouses full of clothes, shoes, and jewelry inventory. When you add in the deadline pressures that this industry faces, it becomes a highly demanding sector where companies must consistently perform at their best.

Step up your game by automating your apparel and footwear business

Garment production software allows companies to stay ahead of the competition and increase their manufacturing capabilities while also catering to customer requests quickly and efficiently. Most importantly, it makes it possible to improve processes and procedures without spending additional time or money on hiring skilled workers.

As automation continues to take the manufacturing world by storm, businesses can focus on designing production lines capable of operating at total capacity without requiring the attention of highly-skilled labor.

With the help of apparel software, companies can easily import customer requests and remain on time with their scheduled deliveries. Integrating its capabilities with other business management systems makes tracking everything from stock levels to manufacturing operations possible so that each task moves along smoothly without any major setbacks or disruptions.

How Katana’s garment production software helps apparel manufacturers plan and stay lean

Apparel manufacturing is increasingly competitive, and many manufacturers turn to a mix of make-to-stock and make-to-order workflows to reduce costs and expand product lines. In an industry notorious for waste, apparel manufacturers today aim for sustainable manufacturing methods. One of the most accessible paths to sustainability and leaner production is having fashion ERP software that effectively tracks raw materials and manufacturing processes in real time for efficient apparel management.

If you’re considering expanding your business with new products or geographical markets, manual processing and paper manufacturing management methods are a recipe for error. Garment manufacturing software like Katana includes a real-time master planning feature that automates sales order generation and manufacturing order prioritization, making on-time order fulfillment simple.

Creating production schedules and assigning tasks becomes easy with Katana’s Shop Floor App. It gives floor-level employees access to the information they need to complete manufacturing orders and managers a complete overview of your product lifecycle. Here’s how Katana’s apparel manufacturing software helps plan and reduce waste:

  • End-to-end production management — Combine manufacturing operations, scheduling, and resource management in one intuitive platform
  • Smart inventory management — Automate stock orders and set reorder points to prevent stockouts
  • Accurate costing — Track manufacturing costs based on your bill of materials (BOM) and operations
  • Integrations and custom workflows — Sync your manufacturing data with hundreds of e-commerce, shipping, accounting, and reporting platforms

Katana gives you a visual overview of materials and production statuses, helping you stay on top of your stock, sales orders, and manufacturing processes at all product lifecycle stages.
