CHALLENGE

Founded in 1972, Chinese group Shandong Ruyi is a global leader in the textile and apparel industry, boasting annual revenues of more than RMB 48bn ($7bn), as well as one of the world’s largest industrial supply chains for wool and cotton processing.
Its Tai’an plant, which specializes in manufacturing high-end menswear, turns out over a million suits a year. In 2015, the Chinese government unveiled “Made in China 2025”, a ten-year plan intended to transform China from a manufacturing giant into a world ...manufacturing power by upgrading its industry to smart technology and emphasizing superior product quality and brand image.
The new initiative, coupled with Ruyi’s ambitious plans to expand its business into the US and Europe, meant the company needed to radically overhaul its approach to manufacturing so that it could run at peak efficiency, while producing impeccable-quality clothing that reflected the government’s new vision for what “Made in China” means.

SOLUTION

Ruyi turned to Lectra for help transforming their Tai’an factory from a traditional garment plant into an Industry 4.0-ready production facility empowered by technology and smart manufacturing. After conducting a preliminary analysis of the plant’s existing workflow, Lectra consultants worked closely with the company to map out a transformation plan for the facility, laying out short- and long-term goals along the way, and looking at how international best practices could be applied to improve the company’s management and operations. With the help of Lectra’s experts, Ruyi began implementing leaner cutting methods at the Tai’an location, kickstarting productivity in its cutting room by adopting Lectra’s automated marker- making software and adding 6 new Vector cutters to the factory floor.
