Innovation for computer-supported mass production of tailored clothing
Human Solutions and Odermark develop One-Step System
23.01.2009Odermark starts into 2009 with a completely new system for the mass production of tailored clothing. In a joint project, the tailored clothing production specialists from Goslar, Germany and the world market leader in body scanning developed the One-Step System which uses the dimensions taken directly from the 3D Body Scanner and operates without slip-on sizes. This innovation in the mass production of tailored clothing sector will be presented for the first time at the CPD from the 1st through the 3rd of February, in Hall 29, the Brinkmann Group booth, Rheinmetallallee 3 in 40476 Düsseldorf.
The advantage of this new process is plain to see: The sales person is taken through the ordering process by the RETAILOR computer program - and when the material has been chosen and the details are documented (buttons, AMF cut, customer's wear preferences), there's no longer any need to take extra measurements (measurement variances) - at the press of a button, the order is sent directly to the Goslar production site. The time spent by the salesman in advising and helping customers is thus drastically reduced: the configuration of a suit used to last up to one hour - now the sales person is finished in half that time. The system is easily operated and is practically error-free, since the tailor in Goslar always has access to the scan and consequently to the customer, who is thus always available.
The purchasing process is also considerably simplified for the end user: He doesn't have to try on anything at all and his measurements are taken in seconds in a contact-free and fully automated process. "The One-Step System ushers in a new era in the computer-supported mass production of tailored clothing, providing customers with suits of the best possible quality, both for fit and exclusive style. Together we have succeeded in creating an innovation which is unequaled on the market today", said Wolfgang Seebauer, Managing Director of Odermark.
