This product can cater to three different segments of "Gem and Jewelry" Industry
with different functionality as its own versions.
This product helps in defining design information for each design uniquely, right
from 2D design specifications. Once the design information is captured and authenticated,
it can move into manufacturing process, where the manufacturing process can start
from 3D CAD Design, Master Model Making and all the casting processes until finishing
stage where the final finished product comes out.
The manufacturing stages can be defined for each design for each of its work order
from each of its customers. The entire WIP tracking is provided for each work order,
which will even facilitate information capture regarding wastage, cost of “labour,
materials and processes” etc (estimated and actual), time frame to complete each
task (estimated and actual), skill set required to handle each task, the specific
manpower allocated to each task etc.
This product is linked to an Image Processing Solution (built-in) where a box comes
fitted with camera and necessary lights. Using this, at each stage of manufacturing,
the output is placed inside the box and the still image of this output is c aptured
and added to database. This is used to verify the quality of output from the image
itself. The images captured are from various views that would make the quality check
feasible even from a remote location.
Once the finished product comes out of the last stage, the image captured of the
finished product gets added to a gallery/catalogue.
If any manufacturer would have its own distributed network of retail outlets, then
these images of finished product is made available on-line through internet connectivity
with periodic auto downloads (in the background) of design information with images,
where each retail outlet will run the retailer version of this product.
Manufacturer’s/Gem Stone Trader’s Version.
This product using unique Image Processing Technique, can identity each stone by
its characteristics such size, color, shape, texture pattern etc. This product helps
in adding images of different possible stones (differs by its different characteristics)
into database as different stone master records, as a one-time activity. During
this exercise, each stone image along with information on characteristics gets added
to database against a unique id.
Subsequently, any stone that need to be identified when placed inside the Image
Processing Box, the software captures an image and does intelligent image processing
by which the relevant/corresponding stone information from the database is retrieved
that matches the characteristics of the stone placed inside the box. This helps
stone sorting department of any Gem Stone Dealer/trader or a Jewelry Manufacturer
in a great zeal. We are also in the process of working out a mechanical conveyer
belt sorter, which can automatically take stones to relevant pockets/chamber based
on the characteristics identified through software.
The "manufacturer's version" of this software could be used by "Gem Stone Processing"
Units, where they would have different processes to arrive at a final cut and finished
The latest designs are available on-line in the form a gallery/catalogue by any
retailer to sell their products efficiently, even if the physical may not be available
in the outlet. Customers, who walk into any "retail" outlet can browse themselves
through the various designs of their choice with a help of touch-sensitive monitors.
Customers can also look up designs that best fit their budgets too. If design chosen
by any customer will not be physically available at the outlet, no sweat! Customers
can give a photo shot of the relevant profile of their body (either face up to bust)
or the hands. This software can integrate their profile photos with the designs
chosen by them and give customer a feel of how the chosen designs look on them,
be it Necklace, Ear Rings, Rings or Bangles. This virtual feel of designs (although
it is just 2D) on customers is a great feature from the point of view retailers,
not losing their customers just because they are unable to impress any customer
in the absence of a physical piece at the outlet.
We are working on the Sales Promotions and on the regular POS functions with an
integration of daily sales by each POS to its Head Quarters.
