Case Study: Melt with You (Apparel Manufacturing Consultant)
A Research and Development team at a multinational apparel company was experiencing quality issues with their current manufacturing process of adhering flexible materials together. They were interested in exploring whether ultrasonic technology was a good option to improve the efficiency of their processes, but needed a better understanding of how exactly the technology worked and whether it possessed any visible limitations.
Technical Expertise Improve Quality Market Advice
The team came to Maven wanting to speak with other companies in the apparel/footwear space to see if they were using ultrasonic welding tools. However, since their larger question focused on limitations of the technology, Maven suggested and helped them develop an Electronic Survey to access perspectives from users across several industries. Through the survey responses, the team developed a much clearer understanding of the technology’s limitations, as well as received advice on how best to utilize it in their future product manufacturing process. With this new information, they decided to move forward with testing production using the ultrasonic technology.
“Working with Maven allowed us to reach people with valuable advice in areas we never would have considered. The feedback we received clarified months of research.” – R&D Leader
