EGYPT: New planning system boosts Delta Textile
Delta Textile Egypt, the vertically integrated underwear manufacturer and a unit of Israel's Delta Galil Industries, has improved delivery performance and production efficiency after investing in a new planning system.
The firm, whose customers include M&S, Calvin Klein, Tommy, Hugo Boss, Victoria Secret, Wal-Mart and Pierre Cardin decided to replace its manual spreadsheets after they hampered visibility and proved difficult to amend when customer requirements changed.
By installing the FastReact Evolution planning solution and integrating this with its existing Movex business system, Delta Textile now operates a centralised and effective planning environment.
And planners are able to focus on issue resolution instead of manual data manipulation.
Production at Delta Textile Egypt is based in a mixture of own plant and various CMT subcontractors. With around 3000 employees across four factories, the firm produces an average of 80,000-85,000 pieces per day.
FastReact was initially installed in a single factory with 15 lines, then rolled out to the remaining three factories with another 51 lines.
"Production Efficiency has increased by around 10%, through the introduction of FastReact," notes Mursi Shamas, IT manager at Delta.
