Viet Vuong adopts Fast Re­act’s Evolve for ‘smarter’ pro­duc­tion

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

Viet Vuong, a two- decade­old Viet­namese gar­ment firm, has adopted the Evolve soft­ware of Fast Re­act Sys­tems in its at­tempt to trans­form to ‘smart fac­tory’.

The sys­tem is ex­pected to go live in the first quar­ter of 2018.

Over the last few years, Viet Vuong had in­vested in tech­nolo­gies like ERP as well as a hang­ing con­veyor pro­duc­tion sys­tem with real-time pro­duc­tion data col­lec­tion. How­ever, with gaps still per­sist­ing, the com­pany de­cided to adopt ‘ Evolve’.

Sub­stan­ti­at­ing fur­ther, Bao Nguyen Vinh, Di­rec­tor, Viet Vuong un­der­lined that in the fast- chang­ing mar­ket, cus­tomers are ex­pect­ing fac­to­ries to not only re­duce cost but also to pro­vide quick re­sponse pro­grammes, there­fore a smart fac­tory will help dif­fer­ent de­part­ments in the com­pany con­nect into one op­er­a­tion.

The Di­rec­tor fur­ther added that the Fast Re­act Sys­tems, which is now a part of Coats Global Ser­vices, un­der­stands the in­dus­try and its chal­lenges well and thus its knowl­edge com­bined with the proven record of the Evolve soft­ware can surely of­fer bet­ter so­lu­tions to the com­pany.

Once the soft­ware is im­ple­mented, the com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­or­di­na­tion is ex­pected to be en­hanced be­tween var­i­ous de­part­ments. The staff will not only be able to see all the in­for­ma­tion but also all the pos­si­ble bot­tle­necks so that plans can be ac­cord­ingly worked out.

“Study­ing and re­solv­ing the prob­lems will help in fix­ing the line idling and will help us en­hance ef­fi­ciency and work smartly,” added Vinh.

Viet Vuong, which man­u­fac­tures sports­wear and leisurewear among other prod­ucts, has to­day ex­panded to three fac­to­ries in HCM City and has a strength of 3,000 peo­ple.

In the fast chang­ing mar­ket, a smart fac­tory will help dif­fer­ent de­part­ments in the com­pany con­nect into one op­er­a­tion.
