Garment manufacturing has traditionally been a labour-intensive industry with several complexities, including a wide range of input materials, variable production volumes, different designs, etc. However, with recent technological developments and global competition, the industry is taking strides towards transitioning from labour-intensive to technology-intensive. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are being used in garment retail but now companies started using AI/ML in the production process to enhance the quality of the end product and satisfy customer needs.
How BlueKaktus AI & ML Help the Garment Industry?
Assist Product Development
One of the most important aspects where AI can be used is automated workflows based on predictive analytics. The garment manufacturing involves several processes from the order receiving to dispatching shipment of the finished garments
Improving Fabric Design
AI can also help identify defects in a specific fabric or colours of the garment thus improving the overall fabric design. BlueKaktus mobile app helps you with hassle-free inspections and quality checks. One gets to track every stage of inspection and update defects in real time.
AI scales the manufacturing process in fashion through automating fabric quality control, pattern inspections, colour matching and defect detection. Manual manufacturing processes are completed by AI at a fraction of the time with increased accuracy.
Improved Inventory Management
AI-based predictive analytics enable fashion companies
to learn from prevailing customer behaviour and plan their inventory stocks accordingly. AI-powered tools can help fashion companies to learn from prevailing customer behaviour and plan their inventory stocks accordingly. AI-powered tools can help the fashion business identify their best- (& worst-) selling items and plan their inventories perfectly.
Lesser Manpower Through Automation
Another key benefit of AI and ML technologies is that it enables fashion houses to automate repetitive or mundane tasks usually performed by human agents. Tasks like data entry and customer support can be handled now by AI, thus freeing human agents to focus on more strategic activities.
Reduction in Returned/ Defective Products
Return of sold/ defective lots is a major bane for the entire fashion industry and can increase operational costs. Thanks to AI-enabled personalization and product information, today's buyers are more informed. This, in turn, does reduce returned products and also improves customer satisfaction.
Improves Working Experience
BlueKaktus is using AI and machine learning to maximize users' experience, improve the efficiency of working systems through intelligent automation and enhance the analytical processes for the garment industry.
In addition to conversational systems, AI is making its way into mobile apps. Users can now take pictures of products and smart image recognition systems can match the photos to real-life items. The BlueKaktus mobile app also comes with a voice command feature where users can ask about the progress and any other information about their orders.
