Intelligent manufacturing revolutionary clothing industry


For how to practice garment intelligent manufacturing, you need to take three key steps:


1. Build an industrial Internet of Things to realize the interconnection of participation factors


The evolution of the Internet of Things has gone beyond the original category of "Internet of Things", which combines technologies including machine learning, embedded software systems, and wireless connectivity. It is undeniable that the Internet of Things is very important for the development and advancement of smart manufacturing of clothing. The sensors of networked devices collect data in real time, which can help the company optimize the process of product manufacturing.


In the future, intelligent manufacturing will apply sensing technology, communication technology, transmission technology, data processing technology, and control technology to all stages of production, batching, and warehousing to achieve digital, intelligent, and networked production and control, improve manufacturing efficiency, and improve Product quality, reduce product cost and resource consumption, and finally achieve a new stage of upgrading traditional industries to intelligence. At the same time, through the cloud service platform, for industrial customers, the integration of cloud computing, big data capabilities, and help the transformation of traditional industrial enterprises.


Second, the use of industrial software, especially in the design and development stage


Industrial software models, codes, and digitizes the rules of each link in the whole life cycle of production, and empowers R&D, manufacturing, sales, and service through algorithms, which is the key to achieving intelligence. Design and development is the core of the apparel industry, and it is the basis of intelligent manufacturing, especially the need to use industrial software. At present, there are already industrial software such as CAD, PDM, MES, SCM in the industry, and it is showing a trend of cloudization.


The DFX (Design for X) model has been repeatedly mentioned in smart manufacturing. X can represent an object or stage of the job in the product life cycle, such as the manufacturing-oriented design variable DFM (Design for Manufacturing), the component-oriented design variable DFA (Design for Assembly). With appropriate design and development software, according to the needs of networked acquisition for different X, the corresponding design and development are provided to improve the success rate of design and development.



Third, intelligent integration to achieve advanced manufacturing


The structured data of product design brought by DFX enables advanced manufacturing, which requires data to flow automatically, realize intelligent and automated production, and promote the intelligent integration of software and hardware to realize advanced manufacturing.


In this process, it is first necessary to realize the production information management and control under the driving of design structured data, and connect the industrial software such as ERP, APS, MES, GST to the cloud, open up the enterprise, and even open up the inter-industry chain. System interaction.


Based on the industrial Internet of Things, the interconnection between devices and devices, people and devices, products and devices is realized. The structured data of the product design brought by DFX and the data integration of the smart device itself, the data flow drives collaborative operation, and realizes Intelligent automatic operation of production machinery and equipment. At present, automatic drawing machines, intelligent cutting machines, automatic sewing machines, intelligent hanging lines, intelligent warehousing and other equipment have appeared on the market, and intelligent integration is underway.
