Apparel maker Aalfs Uno SA is implementing NGC's Shop Floor Control platform to help manage operations at its denim and twill manufacturing plant in Nicaragua.

The US-based company employs 5,500 people worldwide, with manufacturing facilities in Mexico and Nicaragua in addition to its US offices.

NGC's Shop Floor Control tool will help Aalfs continue to develop high-quality, low-cost twill and denim.

The platform provides real-time labour and production reporting throughout the entire factory network, NGC said. The system optimises on-time completions, evaluates plant workload, determines capacity needs, tracks employee performance and calculates complex incentive payroll.
