Production and Quality Area
The Production and Quality Area is led by a Director, with a broad cultural background and over twenty years’ experience, in the qualified management ot the entire production process, for the most important and affirmed brands.
This figure is supported by an Area Deputy Director, who has a significant cultural level in the fashion sector (IED Degree), in addition to important technical and specialized suitability.
A Consultant cooperates as well, with cultural excellence (Management Engineer), and scientific planning skills of the entire production process.
In support, an individuality is provided, with suitables competences of the General Secretariat.
The area has a surface of 1,500 square meters. (besides 1,000 square meters of the site destined to logistics), 45 operators (highly specialized), machinery, equipment and plants (listed below), all technologically advanced (mostly new and the remaining reconditioned), carrying out the entire production process internally, with a production capacity of over 60,000 items / year; designed to reach 80,000 items / year.
In the Production and Quality Area, the research and study of innovative technologies and systems is constant, and in this sense the production process is automated and interconnected. This brings to the use of the “Industry 4.0” process, a customized “Management System” for the control of all the executive phases, and therefore Lean Thinking methodology, in addition to the adoption of other advanced procedures and methods.
Pomme’s Production and Quality Area is divided into two sectors:
- Production Sector, made up of 3 Departments:
- Logistics Department, in which 4 Sections operate;
- Cutting Department, in which 2 Sections and 2 Processes operate;
- Manufacturing Department, in which 4 Sections and 9 Processes operate.
- Quality Sector, made up of 2 Departments:
- Quality Analysis Department, in which 3 Sections operate;
- External Performance Department, in which 2 Sections operate.
During the meeting with the Modelling Area (Industrialization Committee) the Production Sector receives the “indications” to carry out a correct production and after that elaborates the Production Plan, through which the mass production is scientifically planned, based on the principle of absolute customer satisfaction, and therefore of excellence.
In the Quality Sector, the method used is a quality control by each operator of every work phase that is carried out. In this way, the product reache the “Final Quality Control”, checked multiple times, makinig the presence of defects and imperfections, “very difficult”. All this, is part of a mentality that prevails in the Production Sector (and throughout th Pomme), which is that of conceiving total quality, as the sole purpose of each process performed (also based on the ISO Certifications acquired).
