Problem statement of client

Their textile manufacturing plant has more than 50 machines working with over 5000 threads of varied colours and materials. This huge mix of raw materials and orders became difficult to handle with increasing demand as there was no proper method for accountability. They could not use any normal off the shelf stock management software because of the variants associated with a textile industry.

Process

They needed a custom ERP system that would improve their manufacturing process efficiency, manage data and stock centrally and organise the entire end-to-end operations. Our ERP developers used the below 3 step methodology to achieve their goals:

01

Research

Research

Our team visits their manufacturing plant to understand the entire workflow, raw materials and finished goods. This helped to understand the complexity of the project and think of ideas and solutions accordingly.

02

Mock-ups

Mock-ups

After understanding how all the departments and intra-departments function, our enterprise application development team were able to fixate on and create mock-ups of a few design layouts.

03

Development and Launch

Development and Launch

A custom ERP system was designed and built which incorporated excellent features particularly needed in the textile industry. This software could be used for multiple functions including thread management, stock management, client database management, and sales management.

Solution

This resource planning system was developed after a detailed study on the client’s requirements to improvise their manufacturing efficiency and reduce manual work. Here is a glimpse of the solutions we provided through this custom ERP solution:

A
Thread management system
Manufacturing of the fabrics involves tons of logic and calculations, such as how much thread or what kind of thread will be required. We have integrated such thread management logic and calculations with our ERP solution. Now the designers are able to save a thread recipe, alter it or use it multiple times hassle-free. Designers are also able to add photos for each fabric design to make their work easier and faster.
B
Stock management system
With the ERP system, users can check the quantities of threads used per order and how many resources are available to make one order. Stocks are auto-calculated. It allows them to generate a purchase order if the raw material is not in stock to complete the order. They could analyse their demand and supply and take or place orders immediately. They could track their most used materials, threads, designs etc.
C
Orders and Accounts management system
Once the designers enter their design and thread recipe as per the sales order, a manufacturing order invoice is auto-generated and calculates the metres required. It has the code, colour, width and details of the thread that helps manufacturing floor workers know what to use zero error. Simultaneously an accounting receipt is generated to send to the client. It ensures an end-to-end automated workflow enhancing their efficiency.
D
Delivery management system
Our ERP system also allows them to schedule whole delivery or partial delivery so that all the employees could be aware of the deadlines and dispatch dates. We have also added a feature for material wastage. Every time when designers see the material wastage, they will get an automatic pop up. It is to remind them to schedule the delivery of wastage when there are any clients to deliver the waste material.
F
Reporting
Apart from seamless workflow with the ERP solution, they benefit a lot from the reporting feature. They get reports at all levels of the manufacturing process. It helps them track the number of orders received daily, weekly, monthly or yearly, star customers, most and least used threads, last used dates of threads etc. These reports on customers and threads help to build marketing and business strategies enormously.

Result

25%
