The five status quo of the garment industry forces the supply chain to deepen reform

Over the years, the garment industry has been fragmented, disordered, inefficient and in chaos. In addition, China's economy has entered the new normal, economic growth has slowed down, and domestic demand has continued to decline.


However, a complaint has been pale, empty talk said a little powerless. At this moment, see situation to follow up reform is boundless avenue. We analyze and study the garment industry from the five aspects of "background, labor, core, spirit and opportunity". The five current situations of the garment industry force the deepening reform of the supply chain to be imminent, with painstaking efforts and flesh and blood.


Background: industry 4.0 and made in China


"As long as industry 4.0 is rolled out globally," lang said, "Chinese manufacturing will collapse and disintegrate across the board."


At present, intelligent industrial equipment has become the basis for the upgrading and transformation of global manufacturing industry, and developed countries have taken the upgrading of manufacturing industry as the primary task of industry 4.0. In the pre-industrial era, it took 21 days to produce a Harley because its production process was all fixed and mechanized. However, in the era of industry 4.0, a customer placed an order for a customized motorcycle at 9 o 'clock in the morning, and all the five modules came to life. According to the customer's needs, the customer could find raw materials by himself, find a factory to repackage and recombine, and the customized motorcycle could be delivered to the customer within six hours.


In addition to greatly reducing the time, intelligent has an advantage, the cost is basically reduced by 40%.


China's manufacturing industry is now very difficult, and the cost has caught up with that of the United States. If the United States promotes industry 4.0, the cost will be reduced by another 40%. Where is the opportunity for us to compete? The manufacturing cost of Germany and Britain is about 10% to 20% higher than that of China. As long as industry 4.0 is promoted, the cost will be much lower than that of China. Where is our hope for competition?


China as a manufacturing power, the enterprise is facing a severe economic transformation, is in the midst of a move by the manufacturer to manufacture power stage, the country put forward the "made in China 2025" national strategy, with the Internet industry, German industrial 4.0 have different strategic thinking, can effectively help enterprises to realize the upgrade transformation.


To see the small, based on the present, the clothing industry does not reform, death is not necessarily fast, but must be miserable.


Artificial: obtain employment problem is highlighted, productivity needs to be liberated when


The number of college graduates reached 7.65 million in 2016, an increase of 160,000 over last year. Although the growth rate has slowed down in recent years, the number of college graduates this year is still reaching a new high. On the other hand, as China's economic growth slows down, the employment of enterprises and public institutions will decrease correspondingly, resulting in increasing employment pressure on college students. In addition, driven by industry 4.0, ordinary repetitive manufacturing is increasingly inclined to intelligent production, and the prospect of employment pressure for workers is also poor.


Look at the clothing industry, in the traditional clothing supply chain, the workers belong to the factory, the workers' income is the number of pieces. In order to successfully complete the next order, there is usually a reserved time for debugging the machine and adjusting the process. Of course, in this idle period, there will be a large number of idle workers, which results in the waste of labor. Such waste is especially deadly in the garment industry, which is facing an overall deepening of reform.


Therefore, unleashing productivity and promoting workers' self-promotion is a potential general direction of personnel reform.


Core: it's a cliche that inventory leads to operational risk


Of all the manufacturing industries, there are probably few that have a broader and deeper impact on inventory overstocking than the clothing industry. This is closely related to the rapid change of fashion trends and the ever-changing needs of consumers.


In the traditional supply chain, orders must be placed three to six months in advance and at least one thousand items must be ordered at least in advance. As a result, clothing retailers have a large backlog of inventory, and the cash flow is not flexible enough. What's more terrible is that the forecast of the market is more than half a year, which makes it difficult for the clothing brand to grasp the current fashion trend. After stocking the clothes for half a year, they are found to be outdated, so they have to be sold at a discount, again squeezing the profit.


Inventory problem is the core problem that has always troubled the garment industry. Who can solve this problem is the leader of the garment supply chain?


Spirit: made in China, the blank of craftsmanship


Japan has tens of thousands of century-old shops and even thousand-year old shops. The secret for many Japanese enterprises to continue for a hundred years or even a thousand years is to persevere in focusing on their own business and not to be influenced by the "craftsman spirit" at present. Italy is famous for its craftsmen and workshops, many of the biggest luxury brands are made by small craftsmen in Italy. Italian craftsman, everyone pursues perfection. In Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other german-speaking countries, in addition to many well-known brands of automobiles, clocks and appliances, there are a large number of successful small and medium-sized enterprises, which focus on production and manufacturing, pay attention to innovation and research and development, and have a large number of highly skilled labor. These companies in some segments of the industry to achieve global leadership, but not known to outsiders, can be called the "hidden champion."


In Japan, Italy, Germany and other countries, the spirit of craftsman has been well inherited.


Looking at the domestic, li ning quietly decline, the collapse of the bannilu, craftsmanship is not in, all the glitz is gone, the "made in China" soul, is still a Chinese dream.


Have blank have the market, have feelings just become business. Clothing industry made in China, when the intentions of manufacturing.


Opportunity: bad currency drives out good currency in bad trading environment


The domestic clothing market is made up of more than one million islands of information closed to each other (nearly 100,000 fabric outlets and about one million small factories/workshops scattered across the country). The scale of this low-end clothing supply chain market is as high as 1 trillion, but such a large market is always a "bad money drives out good money" freak ecology -- as long as the price is low, can deceive people can get orders, low quality low price win.


Such an abnormal market is really terrible, think very fear. But is there another opportunity brewing?


Under the opportunity, the clothing flexible supply chain is the trend point soldier arrangement


In the long-term practice, in view of the above industry status, the pioneers of the clothing supply chain have been exploring, and opened up a new idea for the upgrade and reform of the supply chain: to create a flexible clothing supply chain with all the strength. Specific operation is: through the use of intelligent production more accurate grasp of market demand; Through socialized production and in-depth optimization of production capacity, the flexible supply chain can solve the problem that it is difficult to improve the technical level of garment workers and the employment of workers. Use the "Internet plus" model to capture popular trends and improve transaction efficiency.


In the aspect of industry 4.0 intelligent manufacturing, domestic pioneers in the clothing industry have long been eager to have a try, but in the case of unknown prospects, the operation is a little timid. At this time, sindbad supply chain took the lead in investing funds and cooperating with intelligent equipment manufacturers to conduct the research and development of intelligent equipment for the Internet of things. From the flat cutting machine to the automatic spreader, computer cutting bed, the fourth generation sewing machine and the automatic template machine, sindbad supply chain realized digital manufacturing and intelligent production and established networked production facilities. Sinbad's production capacity is defined by the number of equipment, the use of intelligent production equipment, through Sinbad's Internet system automatically receive orders sent orders, idle workers nearby can decide according to their own energy to receive how many orders to earn how much money. In this way, the integration of a lot of idle capacity, improve efficiency. Each production center is divided into modules according to the production link, and each module is standardized. Through the system rating, orders are given to excellent workers in priority. The income of workers is increased. The more orders, the more money. To stimulate the enthusiasm of workers with benign competition rules. Through this mode, the productivity of workers will be completely liberated, which will not only improve the income level of workers but also ensure the stability of employment in the textile and garment industry.


On the other hand, many factory entrepreneurs have been struggling to improve the quality and expertise of their workers. Under the environment of traditional garment supply chain, the working environment of workers is dirty, messy and poor, with backward machinery and equipment, limited working hours and insecure wages. In many cases, workers have to go to several factories for a full day's work, so they cannot concentrate on improving their skills. Now, through the Internet platform to achieve the free control of production capacity, region, time, the choice of opportunities, to promote the flow of talent, increase the income of workers, began to concentrate on professional skills, improve quality, ordinary workers become skilled workers, skilled workers gradually become the real meaning of the Internet era craftsmen.


In the era of Internet +, the needs of users on the C end have changed, prompting the emergence of personalized and customized production platforms. Flexible supply chain is based on the demand, has enough flexibility, rapid response capacity according to market demand, help the clothing brands in the past 1 year and 6 months in advance order to 10 days in advance, more style small batch 100 minimum, large quantities of single, three days no matter large single small single all can ensure quality control, timely delivery of the goods. For customers, the advantage lies in the fact that they can make production plans closer to the market, rather than making predictions for a long time in advance, so as to reduce inventory, which maximizes the flexibility and quick response of the supply chain to the market. Help brand owners to seize the popular trend to increase sales opportunities, and eliminate inventory backlog risk.


New norm of Chinese economy, the domestic economy as a whole, in the deflation of the country's case, the garment industry entrepreneurs should be more firm beginner's mind, providing customers with low prices at ease worry "clothing flexible supply chain services", provide consumers with reliable quality clothing products, and for the interests of workers, builders seek development. In the future, we need more enterprises with real conscience to do practical things and make painstaking efforts and contributions to the industry and practitioners. Over the years, the garment industry has been fragmented, disordered, inefficient and chaotic. In addition, China's economy has entered the "new normal", economic growth has slowed down, and domestic demand has continued to decline.


However, a complaint has been pale, empty talk said a little powerless. At this moment, see situation to follow up reform is boundless avenue.
