Sustainable Supply Chain Optimisation

A pilot project to create a data-driven platform to enable manufacturing supply chain real-time decision-making, effective track and trace, and sustainability.

UKFT is leading the project working with IBM, Tech Data and the University of Leeds, with funding from Innovate UK.

The focus of the innovation: Creative re-imagining of how the core of the UK fashion and textile sector could operate is the main driver of the work. It will build on existing state of the art technologies covering areas such as track-and-trace, smart contracting, customer analytics, IoT and AI, which will be pulled together in a single integrated platform. The solution will enable real-time analysis of current business performance, rapid problem solving and optimisation of business flows in order to drive and evidence both the sustainability and profitability of the business.
