Executive Summary 

In a global market which insists on ever changing styles, short production runs, on-time delivery and low margins, today’s garment manufacturers need to be highly competitive.

GSD is a Time – Cost benchmarking, Productivity Improvement and Social Compliance solution based on a scientific and ethical method analysis technique.

GSD accurately and consistently predicts benchmarks and communicates time and cost prior to and/or during the price negotiation process thereby safeguarding the profitability of the business – in short, GSD facilitates “fact-based negotiation”.

Additionally, productivity is improved through detailed analysis of existing methods and objective comparison and implementation of “best method” – a process instilled within a company-wide philosophy of continuous improvement.

GSD is THE international industry standard for the sewn products sectors. Where GSD is implemented, factory efficiencies may be measured against international standards, precise costings, effective incentive schemes, properly balanced production lines and a more productive workforce are all evident - and truly tangible benefits follow.

For more information please read the other sections on the website which explain how the GSD solution can address today’s business challenges so that new and existing styles can be delivered in a short time, on time and with increased profit - whilst at the same time maintaining a high level of quality and social compliance.
