Product output & reliability on the rise for fashion fabric designer

Challenge: Due to the volume of concurrent orders, our client, a designer and producer of fashion fabrics was finding it difficult to continue managing its planning and scheduling manually, which had historically been its mode of operating. It needed to implement platform that could offer a solution to the current problem and manage further business growth.

Solution: We conducted in-depth research into our client's business and used the findings to adjust existing processes via a configured logistics-led approach. This allowed minimal disruption to business activity. This approach also adjusted the methods conducted on the production floor giving greater transparency into the process.

Results: Our platforms created plans based on finite machine capacity, and as a result production lead times reduced 50%, while production reliability has increased from 60% to 90%, boosting efficiency. In 2012, our client expanded our platform and increased output 7% in a few weeks.

About the Solution Provider: Quintiq's revolutionary supply chain planning and optimization platform enables enterprises to improve efficiency at every stage of the supply chain journey. It powers end-to-end planning and optimization of personnel, resources, and processes in a single planning environment, across all planning horizons.
