India’s largest apparel manufacturer and exporter, Gokaldas Exports, has selected Fast React Systems to help improve its production planning and control.

The clothing maker produces sports, casual and formal wear, and has aggressive plans to grow its business with both global buyers and the Indian retail sector. Current customers include Gap, Nike, Levi’s, Adidas, Abercrombie & Fitch, H&M, Debenhams and Zara.

“In a tough market, productivity in manufacturing and on-time-deliveries are both critical parameters sought by customers,” noted CEO Gautam Chakravarti. “We expect Fast React will help us improve our performance on both these dimensions.”

Adopting a disciplined and systematic approach to production planning is key for Gokaldas Exports, which has 30 factories and processes over 400 styles a month to produce 3m garments.

FastReact complements existing systems by extracting order information to a flexible and graphical production plan. This enables the business to make more effective planning decisions, improve production efficiency and maximise on time delivery.
