SMART SHOE MANUFACTURING: METHODS AND INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGICAL INSTRUMENTS AIMED AT STREAMLINING MANUFACTURING PROCESSES AT SANTONI SPA

 This will improve production organisation standards as well as speeding up information circulation and monitoring activities throughout all product development and manufacturing phases;

Product specifications (data guided by the configurator and biometrics acquired by special instruments) are then modelled using virtual prototyping and virtual-reality technology specific for the footwear industry and which are based on a thorough understanding of the product and the process. It will be possible to further personalise the various parts of the shoe with 3D printers and build prototypes which are not just geared to function but to aesthetics as well.

In this respect, the human-centred business model will enhance working procedures and the experience of human capital, contributing to the implementation of functional, performance and technology usability checks for different categories of users.

Lastly, product traceability systems will be introduced throughout the entire manufacturing chain so as to monitor the progress of each single order and manage the post-sales product data. This will enable us not only to offer personalised services but also to trace the materials flow within the various manufacturing departments.
