Modular approach: How experienced brands allocate their quality budget

In order to maximize production efficiency, textile manufacturers and brands have to navigate a twofold path – minimizing cost while maximizing production quality.

To do so, they need to find cost-effective quality management solutions that can help detect and evade potential production risks and inefficiencies. Besides, failure to preempt risk factors and manage quality at the initial stages can have terrible consequences:

However, there is a simple solution to all of these problems — Modular Approach.

In this article, we’ll explain the ins and outs of a Modular Approach and how it can help you with cost-effective and timely quality management.


Modular Approach 

In most cases, manufacturers and brands follow a reactive policy in terms of quality management. They take quick and decisive actions if and when problems arise. This can save the company time and money at the initial stages, but it proves to have terrible consequences in the long run, as illustrated above.

A Modular Approach, in contrast, takes a preventative rather than a reactive approach to quality management. As such, instead of putting out fires after quality issues or supply chain failures arise, they can preempt the potential risks and avoid them altogether.

A Modular Approach functions with the assumption that all manufacturing processes are inherently flawed to an extent or prone to inefficiencies. As such, by making time for risk-assessment and by taking preemptive measures at the initial stages, focusing more on where the risks are, manufacturers can be sure that their entire production process would proceed without errors, delays, or inefficiencies later.

In the long run, this approach can have numerous benefits for all textile actors.


The Two Dimensions of a Modular Approach

There are two primary dimensions of a modular approach in terms of the risks they have to monitor. All errors and inefficiencies arise from one of two production aspects.

Manufacturers Risks:

The company’s suppliers are vetted based on the following factors:

Products Risks:

These are challenges associated with product design and execution:

The higher the risk involved in one of these dimensions, the higher the level of control and monitoring required.
