A DIGITAL TRADITION

THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION INVOLVES INDUSTRIES

Facilitating a production process

For Ermenegildo Zegna, we have created a solution that makes it possible to facilitate a production process through its graphic representation on a monitor and the introduction of barcodes capable of interfacing, in real time, with the management system.

THE CUSTOMER

The dream: the most beautiful fabrics in the world

Founded in 1910 in Trivero, Ermenegildo Zegna is a fully vertically integrated company, an unusual feature for a menswear brand, which allows it to achieve the highest quality in all aspects and to offer diversified products, from clothing to accessories.

THE SCENARIO

Digitization in the industry

Diversification of the offer and topicality of the entrepreneurship demonstrate the constant desire to look to the future. The continuous commitment to innovation and improvement has led to the need to also digitize the production process phase concerning the transit of trolleys with thread reels.

THE NEEDS

Improving processes to increase productivity

Ermenegildo Zegna’s requirement was to create, for the textile division, a graphic representation of the filling level of the trolleys that, from the yarn warehouses, have to carry the thread reels from the looms to the weaving mill. The organizational need was to monitor in a single screen the filling level of the trolleys and to be able to give orders for handling, picking and unloading.

THE SOLUTION

Data integration and graphic representation for industry 4.0

The solution developed consists in the graphic representation of the filling level of the trolleys that, from the yarn warehouses, have to carry the thread reels from the looms to the weaving mill. Through a step diagram, we are able to identify the full trolleys, those to be filled or to be emptied. The operations are carried out with barcode readers that download information on Ermenegildo Zegna’s management system. In addition, we have developed a software that allows integration with the customer’s ERP system, which updates, in real time, the graphic situation. 

It is also possible to view a forecast calculation based on the production of 5 days of yarn availability thanks to a bar graph. The looms also communicate, in real time, their state: if the drum is stopped for some problem, if it is running, if it is loaded or unloaded, continuously updating the data. 

Everything is displayed on a Samsung monitor equipped with a Livion player, tailored by CWS, which allows you to manage the power on and off of the devices, to update data when the plant is not operational and to save electricity and data traffic on the network.

THE CWS VALUE

THE RIGHT TO HAVE UP-TO-DATE DATA

The entire solution offers the possibility of having a specific production area under control, without having to carry out manual checks by moving inside the plant. 

A modern and complete graphic of the existing situation in a specific production area allows you to visualize the error messages sent by the machines and to identify the sections in which to intervene to solve the problems that have occurred with a reduction in time.
