Pre Production


In addition to Marking and Grading, this the stage where preparation takes place before launching production and the main goal of avoiding costly mistakes

Why have UDS handle pre production

Our combined experience handling all aspects of the process allows our clients to focus on their strengths knowing that we won't miss any of the critical steps of pre production

We handle pre production by ensuring that every aspect is resolved before starting production:

* Material Performance
* Production Pattern
* Material Allocation
* Pattern Grading
* Marker Layout

Processing Time

Material Performance

Depends on client
Production Pattern
1 - 4 weeks depending on amount of fit sessions and quality of pattern submitted
Material Allocation
1 - 2 business days depending on amount and quality of information available to start with
Pattern Grading
1 - 4 business days from PAD System pattern completion and grading specification approval
Marker Layout
1 - 4 business days from graded pattern release + receiving all materials in our warehouse + receiving marker request from client

Material Performance
All fabrics and trims must be tested for durability or suitability BEFORE going into production

Production Pattern
A patterns is released for production once the first pattern has been perfected for fit and optimized for the lowest fabric consumption and number of sewing operations.
Material Allocation,Pre-Production
My Image
Material Allocation
We provide clients fabric and trim allocations required to run their production order of each style
This service will
prevent fabric shortages and costly surcharges associated with rushing secondary fabric rolls or trim to complete the order or having to cancel production due to material shortages
Pattern Grading,Pre-Production

Pattern Grading
The process of making your pattern into different sizes is carried out after your base size pattern has been released for production
We can
propose a set of grading increments from our stock libraries (as a starting point) or we can grade according to increments or measurements provided by the client
Marker,Pre-Production
My Image
Marker Layout
When a pattern that has been released to go into production and all pieces (of every size) have been laid out into the fabric to get fabric usage
We can
propose pattern changes to improve efficiency as there are many factors (besides fabric width) that will contribute:
* One way Nap
* Engineered one way (Stripe)
* Engineered two way (Plaid)
* Border Print or Selvage
* Tubular Fabric

A mini-marker will be e-mailed to the client for approval to confirm that the fabric usage is satisfactory

Marker copies can be
printed to 66" Bond Paper as required

Pre-Production Price

Estimates
Due to the great number of variables, every pre-production project is priced on an individual basis and written estimates are prepared once we know the specific details of each garment to be produced:

* What fabric and trim will be used for each style
* How many pattern pieces each garment style requires
* How many sizes each style requires
* What sizing standards (grading rule specification) are we following
* What is the most efficient ratio to use for the number of sizes and laid pieces each marker requires
* What operations (machines) are required for the assembly of each garment
* Material allocations based on BOM & Yield

Price Calculator
If you want to get an idea of how much to budget, our price calculator is available to get possible price ranges for different configurations of services
In order to get the most out of the price calculator, you'll need this information readily available:

* Grading - Number of pattern pieces per style to be graded X number of sizes per style
* Markers - Number of laid pieces per style X number of sizes X ratio per size
