GSD is a Time-Cost benchmarking, Productivity Improvement and Social Compliance solution based on a scientific, ethical manufacturing methods analysis technique.
GSD accurately and consistently facilitates the creation of method, time, cost and production capacity for the sewn products industries and for more than 35 years it has been the international standard by which these industries define and improve Performance, Efficiency and Productivity.
Before any new “style” can be successfully brought to market, the real cost of manufacturing must be quantified, understood, benchmarked and communicated throughout the business. Then, once in production (or before if possible), improvements in the working method should be made throughout the product lifecycle to optimise productivity and secure profitability.
The GSD solution enables our customers to create accurate and consistent time standards upon which they reliably benchmark and manage performance and efficiency, optimise product costs and balance production lines, as well as establish and implement effective incentive schemes – all of which will increase productivity and profitability, creating benefits for both the company and the individual worker, whilst clearly demonstrating acceptable levels of social compliance.
From the industrial engineer to the costing technician, from the production manager to the planner, from the human resources manager to shop floor supervisor - costing, line balancing, investment appraisal, pre-production planning, creation of time standards, production targets, operator training and methods improvement, GSD (Corporate) Limited can help.
