Coats Digital, the leading digital transformation partner announces that textile and clothing manufacturer, Thygesen Textile Vietnam, has significantly increased its SMV efficiency on core style production as a result of implementing Coats Digital’s GSDCost solution.
The solution has provided Thygesen Textile Vietnam with accurate and transparent costing and capacity forecasting, leading to an increase in order opportunities, freeing up additional capacity, and a more motivated workforce. This has enabled the company to establish international standard time benchmarks based on accurate SMVs, improving productivity, and setting achievable performance targets across the business.
Prior to implementing Coats Digital’s GSDCost solution, Thygesen Textile Vietnam faced significant uncertainty surrounding its production planning and waste elimination due to the lack of a scientifically based method-time-cost standard. The factory was overstretched with workloads and found it difficult to adapt to sudden production changes to fulfil customer orders. However, with the GSDCost solution onboard, the business, planning, and production departments were able to make informed business and costing decisions based on accurate capacity forecasts, which also afforded them significant time gains to focus on other areas of the business.
Chris Nguyen, Chief HR Officer, Thygesen Textile Vietnam, said: “We are exceptionally thankful to the Coats Digital team for providing such meaningful support and superlative training throughout the GSDCost implementation. With the help of the Coats Digital team, we are looking forward to exploring how GSDCost can eliminate further inefficiencies and reduce resource waste in the production process. GSDCost will consequently play a pivotal role in our digitization journey as we continue to invest significantly to improve our operation and enhance our service and delivery to customers.”
Coats Digital’s GSDCost method analysis and pre-determined times solution is widely acknowledged as the international standard across the sewn products industry. The solution supports a more collaborative, transparent, and sustainable supply chain, in which brands and manufacturers establish and optimise ‘International Standard Time Benchmarks’ using standard motion codes and predetermined times. This use of a common language and standards supports accurate cost prediction, fact-based negotiation, and a more efficient garment manufacturing process while delivering on CSR commitments.
Patrick Chau, Customer Success Manager, Coats Digital, said: “We are delighted to be working closely with Thygesen Textile Vietnam to establish a robust standard working hours database that fully supports its ambitious digitisation programme. Thygesen’s team quickly grasped the rigorous training required to understand the scientific methods of GSDCost, and we look forward to enjoying a long-term partnership to ensure it continues to remain one of the leading, most innovative textile manufacturers in Vietnam.”
Established in 2004, Thygesen Textile Vietnam produces over 10 million textile and clothing products a year, including activewear, fashionwear, underwear, kidswear, and workwear. The company boasts an annual turnover of 80 million USD and has an impressive customer portfolio, including DKNY, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, G3, Mascot, and Girlfriend Collective.
