@rgeMAS system in the eyes of NQC

İsmet Tayak (H&M-COS \ NQC)

Hello. Could you briefly introduce yourself and your work?

I’m Ismet Tayak. I have worked in different positions in textile for about 23 years. I have been serving as the representative of H&M in Görkem Giyim for almost 2 years.

Can you describe your work in detail?

Representing H&M here, we’re checking out the launch and mooving products.At the beginning, we do the sample stages, which we call pilots sent by H&M.We sew 2-3 of each size for both size and quality control.After all the controls are done, the production starts.At the beginning of production, we perform in-line control within the line.We are also advancing the packaging part.After the products are finished, it looks at the products according to the AQL table determined by the customers.If there is no problem, we start the shipping process.If there is a contrary situation, unfortunately, we take the products under control again. These are the situations we experience from time to time.

The @rgeMAS system has been used in Görkem Giyim for a while. Are there any reports that you have used here?

There are of course. Let me explain, @rgeMAS is a system that meets the demands of H&M and similar customers.I had heard @rgeMAS before and had seen it in other factories, but I met this system at Görkem Giyim.Frankly, I really enjoyed working here one-on-one.It takes the factory far ahead in terms of quality, performance and quantity. We have lived here and seen it ourselves.I recommend it wherever we go. I liked it very much and it added a lot to us. The best part is that we can see the wrong parts of the line instantly and who made it.This system is also installed on our computers.I will make a small analogy.We can think of it like Istanbul traffic.So at that moment, we can see where the line is clogged.We can see it instantly without going into the line.This is a very nice thing.

There is also a 2D barcode application. Can you also talk about this application?

All operators have readers. Since each operator has his work to be read, the system knows who is doing which job.When the product is finished, when we have the 2D barcode read, we can see who prepared the pocket, who closed the collar, and who made the mistake with a pinpoint shot.We can see it as a direct name.I want to say one more thing here.We put a 2D barcode under the washing instructions.This is an innovation added by the @rgeMAS system apart from customer requests.In this 2D barcode, there is all the information of the product such as the cut and the serial number. When we have the 2D barcode read, we can see which operations were carried out and who carried out these operations.When we encounter any error in the inspection, we scan the 2D barcode , and when we have a problem with the pocket related to the collar, we scan the data code.And we can clearly see who made this mistake. This takes us a long way in terms of both quality and quantity. This made our job very comfortable. We can prevent the errors in the line.

How do you control the product?

Here we got our quantities according to the AQL table. We will carry out both quality and measurement controls of the products. Washing instructions, barcodes and labels are strictly and strictly checked when starting the product.Otherwise, the number does not matter at all, even if there is only one product, unfortunately, the product fails. Apart from that, we do all the sewing controls. The important thing here is to look through the eyes of the customer who buys the product in the store.We definitely make the following sentence when we dispatch the product from here. ‘Will I buy this product in the store?’ We also say this to the personnel doing quality and optical control here.“You will look at every product you look at as if you were buying it yourself.” We also make sure that all the stitches are correct by making the stitches check.After looking at the stiches, we do the optical checks. We also do fit images again. We also look on the mannequin. Apart from that, we also do size control.Again, we have a size chart determined by the customer, and we control them as well. If there is no problem, we say “good luck” to our friends and finish the job.
