Vertically integrated knitted garments manufacturer Inova Textiles is focusing on the digitization of best practice planning and control processes with the FastreactPlan from Coats Digital, which aims to deliver rapid and significant improvements in capacity utilization, speed to market and agility, while reducing excess costs.
The FastreactPlan will be implemented at Inova’s sewing and cutting facilities. It will deliver a fast, detailed and accurate order confirmation process and production plan, optimized for delivery, efficiency and speed. The FastStart project will include detailed planning of sewing lines using the highly visual tools of the FastReactPlan planning board, as well as the scheduling and visualization of load on secondary processes such as cutting and printing.
Material requirements (MRP) and pre-production product development activities critical for on-time start of production, are dynamically driven by the latest plan on a LEAN pull basis, ensuring clear visibility and alignment of priorities across departments and with suppliers.
Established in 2003, Inova Textile has three facilities in Estado de México, covering knitting, finishing, cutting, printing and sewing. The company’s passionate commitment to customer service excellence and fast turn-around, has been at the heart of its business’s success and underpinned a strong export business to the US and Canada, with customers including Target, Wal-Mart, and Disney.
