Soft goods, including textile and apparel, industries have unique challenges in terms of number of SKUs, the uniqueness of each BOM, the right quantities of style color and size, lot integrity for color and quality consistency, and lower margins in a very competitive and fast moving world of fashion and furniture markets. The challenges are not just in the supply chain and sales and operation planning but also in production and manufacturing of goods where resources need to be well coordinated to reduce work in progress and increase efficiencies. This involves configuration of resources to match capacity with demand, reduction of set-up times and coordination of batches at dye tanks.
Adexa offers a proven and well-integrated solution that addresses all the challenges in the industry from demand planning, supply planning and inventory planning all the way down to factory planning and even machine sequencing, all in a unified data model. Predictive analytics and performance management solutions are also part of the overall solution to proactively show what measures should be taken in order to provide best delivery performance at the lowest cost of operations and inventory. Some of the world’s best and biggest textile and apparel companies in the world have been benefiting from our solutions. We invite you to talk to them to see how Adexa can benefit your operations.

Gulistan Carpet has been one of America’s leading carpet producers for nearly a century, having survived the Roaring ’20s, the Great Depression, world wars, technological evolution and shifting consumer tastes. The Challenge of providing high-end carpet products in an endless steam of design choices, as well as customizing products to satisfy individual customer orders, forced the company to make drastic changes in how it manages its production operations. Just to survive, Gulistan had to refocus the company.
Twice a year (in January and July) big sale events in the apparel world promise a field day for bargain-hunting consumers. Using Adexa’s eGPS suite, the company successfully implemented a new supply chain solution to shorten production time, improve enterprise-wide coordination and synchronization, and help the clothing manufacturers who were its customers reduce losses.
