Delta Textile improves production efficiency with FastReact

The FastReact Evolution planning solution has been installed and has been fully integrated with the Movex business system to provide a centralised and effective planning environment. The installation of FastReact has removed the reliance on spreadsheet technology and has enabled the planners to focus on issue resolution as opposed to spreadsheet manipulation.

A phased approach to implementation was undertaken with FastReact being initially installed in a single factory with 15 lines. The implementation proved so effective that it was quickly rolled out to the other 3 factories with another 51 lines. When asked about the implementation of FastReact, Mursi Shammas, IT Manager at Delta commented “The level of support provided has been excellent”.

Since the implementation of FastReact, Delta are no longer using spreadsheets to plan. This has resulted in many business benefits being achieved including better On Time Delivery Performance (OTDP) to customers, better staff utilisation and increased production efficiency. “Production Efficiency has increased by around 10%, through the introduction of FastReact” explained Mursi Shammas.

Production is based in a mixture of own plant and various CMT subcontractors. With around 3000 employees across 4 factories, Delta Textile Egypt produce an average of around 80,000-85,000 pieces per day. They also have the ability to handle a high volume of small order quantities (300-500 pieces per order).

The main business system in use at Delta is Movex, which had been enhanced through own development. However, before FastReact was installed, planning was mainly performed on spreadsheets.

These largely manual based systems caused a lack of visibility and proved very difficult to amend when customer requirements changed. Planners were not able to see the knock on effect of any changes made, which meant that much 'fire-fighting' needed to take place to ensure that customer deliveries were made on time.

Delta is a leading global apparel company specialising in intimate apparel, men's underwear and socks. The company produces customised, innovative fashion and basic apparel for leading retailers and brands around the world.
