IMPROVE PROFITABILITY AND COMPETITIVENESS BY OFFERING MORE CHOICE AND AN OPTIMIZED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

China accounts for almost one third of global upholstery consumption and the demand continues to rise. This means furniture manufacturers need to develop an increasing variety of innovative products more quickly and produce to deadlines. They must also reduce the number of expensive physical prototypes. By using Lectra’s 3D upholstered furniture design software, customers can explore a multitude of 3D styling variants, control costs and deliver ready-to-produce models.

OPTIMIZING FABRIC USE

Fabric is one of the key drivers of product cost, so manufacturers are always looking for ways to optimize its use. An improvement of only 1% of fabric use can mean considerable cost reductions.
Lectra solutions generate fabric savings at every stage in the cutting process, guaranteeing optimized production costs.

BOOSTING HIDE SAVINGS IN LEATHER CUTTING

Manufacturers of leather furniture face two main challenges: the rising cost of hides and the lack of skilled labor. They are looking for a cutting solution which makes the best use of each hide and which also frees skilled workers to perform tasks where they bring more value. Focused on quality and productivity, the comprehensive solutions designed by Lectra give maximum efficiency to the leather-cutting process.
