Targu Secuiesc, September 7, 2017: Beta version of the timeSSD was launched in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Following the high interest shown by the fashion brands, textile faculties and manufacturers during the first presentation in May 2017 at Texprocess / Frankfurt, the Beta version is running in the Cloud with seven languages installed: English, German, Russian, Turkish, Romanian, Bulgarian and Hungarian.
timeSSD Beta provide accurate times for handling, positioning, sewing, dispose, use of tools, read-write, walking and ironing motion elements used during the methods development, with focus on the sewing industry.
The Beta version of the timeSSD® is invitation based and its use is free, for commercial purposes too.
All the methods and workflows developed in Beta will be available in the commercial version.
The commercial version of the timeSSD® is “pay per use” based, no user licenses, no special keys and no maintenance costs. Its availability depends only on the internet connection for the user. The data backup is managed by Azure with geo redundant backup policy.
DataS develops garment industry dedicated software solutions to increase the operating and manufacturing performance. timeSSD provide the “must to have” benchmark data for the efficiency control and incentive payroll in labor intensive industries, especially in garment manufacturing.
However, is a collaborative platform where the user develops private working methods and workflows and has the possibility to share them with the selected partners.
Laszlo Szabo, managing director of DataS says: “For example the execution method edited in Germany on German language by the fashion brand’s development team it’s shared in timeSSD with the manufacturer from Romania. The production supervisor gets the method descriptions by default on Romanian and has all the necessary elements for the style execution with the standard times specified. This feature avoids the misunderstandings, save times and money. In the near future the Polish, French, Arabic, Bengali and Urdu languages will be implemented. Our intentions are to have the Hindi, Mandarin and Vietnamese languages included too, before the end of this year. I would like to say my thanks to our partners and supporters from different countries for their continuous support in the language translation processes.”
timeSSD has a native connection with the GPD – General Production Data – QR code based, real-time, shop floor control and materials requirement planning software solution, developed by DataS.
DataS develops and delivers integrated software solutions dedicated for the manufacturing and business processes in textile, leather, garments and knitwear industry starting from 1992.
Today are more than 1400 installed DataS software licenses in 21 countries.
DataS, today, is the commercial brand of Astailor Shine Ltd. from Romania, and of our sister company from Hungary: DataStep Hungary Ltd.
Workflow logistics are often the most complex to deal with in the production process, at least when it comes to the efforts that are being made to bring these processes online. However, the most recent innovations in this area aim to save business time and therefore money in the production process.
Having acquired SSD (Standard Sewing Data) software rights from AJ Consultants, Finland, prominent garment industry software provider DataS has just launched its timeSSD.com website, which it said incorporates all of the standard data elements set with predetermined time values from SSD, including the MTM-2 database and now is available for everyone as a more cost-effective, intuitive web-based service, extended with social manufacturing features.
With timeSSD, DataS is endeavouring to benchmark data for efficiency control and incentive payroll in labour intensive industries, especially in garment manufacturing. However, the platform is also collaborative, where the user develops private working methods and workflows and has the possibility to share them with the selected partners.
Laszlo Szabo, managing director of DataS said: “A shared workflow, based on standard methods, between the client and the manufacturer means more than transparency and confidence. The manufacturing price discussion could be limited to the price / minute factor, maybe on necessary equipment, in addition. Likewise, the web-based collaborative concept equip the manufacturing consultants with their indispensable tool, available anywhere and anytime, as a service.”
timeSSD has a native connection with the GPD – General Production Data – shop floor control and materials requirement planning software solution, developed by DataS. The GPD’s QR code-based, real-time, data collection from the shop floor provides the data sets for the self-measurement based time studies as feed-back for the method engineers.
Another business looking to enable online tracking of the production workflow is WIPtracks. Its Work in Progress Tracking System (WIP) is a hybrid web-based system that connects business process management with measurement of the direct labour on the production line.
The company said that WIP incorporates: planning; employee management; shift and break management; management of product lines; management of operators and operations; as well as providing real-time reports on operator and machine effectiveness. The technology is said to save businesses 7-10% of expenditure.
