At the beginning of 2023, the emergence of ChatGPT has added new imagination to search methods. Today, the world’s first intelligent fabric search system has also brought more innovative application space for intelligent search in the textile industry.
All things are born in spring and are born new. From March 28th to 30th, the 2023 China International Textile Fabrics and Accessories (Spring and Summer) Expo was grandly held at the National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai). Suzhou Peer Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd.’s two major products, FISE fabric intelligent search engine and PLSS product sample library selection system, were unveiled simultaneously at the Digital Fashion digital fashion innovation space and the company’s booth. Intelligent vertical cabinets, automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), robots…the technological booth layout and intelligent products attracted strong attention and extensive consultation from buyers and exhibitors.
Intelligent search leads by more than one “cloth”
Qiao Yanjin, director of China Textile Information Center, and Li Binhong, director of National Textile Product Development Center, visited the booth
“You can randomly select a sample from our sample book, or you can choose your own fabric sample. We will digitally convert the fabric on site and find the same or similar fabric sample through FISE.” In the booth, Peer Smart Technology The staff introduced the functional features of the FISE Fabric Intelligence Search Engine to the audience and conducted a live demonstration of its operation process.
Peer Intelligent Technology has a collection of physical samples of the entire textile product line. It has formed a large database through standard-defined surface feature extraction and imaging technology. The accumulation of continuous machine deep learning has created a fine-grained fabric intelligent search engine. This engine can be applied to fabric varieties. Search, fabric pattern search, fabric printing and dyeing finished product spot search and other fields.
It can be seen at the scene that after the staff digitally imaged the fabric, FISE gave feedback in just a few seconds. The physical sample taken out of the sample library was very similar to the original fabric. “Our online database and offline physical library have more than 200,000 fashion fabrics. Our original intention is to help textile companies improve work efficiency and bring better service experience to market customers.” said the person in charge of Peer Intelligence Technology , without the support of a digital platform, it will be more difficult for companies to find quality samples or rice samples. By formulating unified information collection requirements and collecting the quality, color and other characteristics of fabric samples from textile enterprises, the FISE system provides a practical path to reduce repeated proofing, resource consumption and time costs.
Make the “housing and transportation” of fabrics smarter
Driven by the dual promotion of economy and technology, product digital management has entered a period of rapid development. At the booth of Peer Smart Technology, the Product Library Selecting System was also very eye-catching. It is understood that the PLSS system can easily realize the intelligent storage, transfer and outbound selection of fabric samples. PLSS can directly send physical samples to the demander after querying the matching spot inventory information, helping companies reduce the capital occupation of inventory backlog and avoid reinvesting in weaving and printing and dyeing production.
“I am very interested in this system. The fabric products developed by our company cover multiple categories and have thousands of patterns. Daily sorting, storage and picking are big projects. If we can equip the PLSS system, we can just move our fingers in front of the equipment. If you can ‘call’ the cloth, I believe you will get twice the result with half the effort.” A fabric company saidThe person in charge said.
Product circulation is one of the core contents of internal management of textile and garment enterprises. Timely understanding of fabric storage conditions and accurate dispatch of warehouse products are the keys to efficient management. However, there are many types of goods in textile and clothing warehouses, which are difficult to find and transport when entering and exiting the warehouse. Therefore, the time cost is high, which greatly affects the work efficiency of the enterprise. PLSS’s all-weather, unbounded online working mode can realize different orders and timely capture of products, effectively improve the accuracy of enterprise warehouse operations and the speed of product transfer and delivery, improve management efficiency and space utilization, and provide enterprises with Cost reduction and efficiency improvement bring new solutions.
Exploring the new digital future together
The traditional textile industry has pain points such as long upstream and downstream chains, difficulty in timely exchange of information, and scattered and fragmented links. In the context of the accelerated development of the digital economy, the industry urgently needs to break through the constraints and transform and reform.
“The pursuit of fashion requires new products, fast delivery, and small order quantities. This is in conflict with the existing technical bottlenecks, cost control, process management, and quality standards. Many product inspection indicators are difficult to fulfill, especially when the data indicators are at critical levels. Status, whether the order can be delivered depends on the marketing situation, and the operational experience of the overall process is crucial.” Yu Weifeng, manager of the intelligent data department of Peer Smart Technology, brought the “Fabric Intelligent Search and Picking System” at the Digital Fashion Digital Fashion Innovation Space of sharing. He said that the fabric intelligent search engine FISE is gradually opening up to professional suppliers and corresponding markets according to the fabric classification module in stages, and is linked with the product sample library selection system PLSS to provide the industry with a convenient, efficient and accurate search experience.
In addition to the two major intelligent products of peer smart technologies, the Digital Fashion Digital Fashion Innovation Space also brings together seven digital technology companies in the textile and apparel industry to showcase cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, industrial Internet, and blockchain. , virtual reality and augmented reality are cutting-edge digital technology innovation technologies and application solutions supported by technology. Digital Fashion is hosted by the China National Textile and Apparel Council and jointly organized by the Productivity Promotion Department of the China National Textile and Apparel Council, the Textile Industry Branch of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the China Textile Information Center, and the National Textile Product Development Center.
Since its establishment, Peer Smart Technology has taken it as its mission to solve the development pain points of the textile industry. “Our smart application products are accelerating integration with textile companies, using standardized fabric digital systems to empower the integration and collaboration of upstream and downstream supply chains.” said the person in charge of Peer Smart Technology, “In the future, we will focus on both software and hardware. We will continue to carry out iterative upgrades of products and services, expand the application of search engines in other textile material fields, and empower textile and apparel companies with sustainable development through digital and intelligent applications.”
