EIM Solutions, leading SAP gold partner offering niche solutions in the smart factory, has completed a solution that integrates the sales order planning with the shop floor production process at Kandan Knitss, Tirupur. This implementation enabled flexibility, ease of use, and, most importantly, complete visibility into the operations so that the management could make better informed business decisions and delivered a future proof business solution. Kandan Knitss is a leading wholesale textile company for a complete range of products and fabrics for men, women and children based at Tirupur.
Kandan Knitss was seeking to improve the quality of their production planning. They were looking at a solution that would enable the transformation of a conventional garment plant into a smart factory and support their production lines. Collaborating with business and IT teams at Kandan Knitss (KK) EIM solutions helped implement a smart factory solution utilising the existing SAP ERP solution to extract the garment root data as per the expected template.
The smart factory solution has an exception based analytical platform which captures order status from the factory in a non-intrusive way, monitors production at various operational points and enables management level reporting through order status dashboards. The implementation of this solution has helped the company manage a rapidly evolving product line, better sales order management, inventory management, and order fulfilment. All of this in turn hasled to increased productivity, improved quality, optimised manpower utilisation, increased employee satisfaction and better margin results. The automated processes throughout the business improve inventory accuracy, reduce labour costs, minimises errors and improves responsiveness.
According to Dhanapal, the CEO of Kandan Knitss, “Our rapidly evolving business needed a scalable, flexible yet simple business solution to accelerate our growth. The implementation of the solution has driven significant improvements in business forecasting and asset utilisation with the enhanced operational visibility ensuring better control and optimisation. The EIM Solutions consultants with their domain and technology proficiency worked closely with our teams to deliver a solution in line with our vision”.
