VLISCO: Taking optimization to the next level




Sector:  Textiles & Clothing
Tag:  Planning & Scheduling
 Production Optimization
 Lead Time Reduction

Since 1846, the Dutch-based Vlisco has been designing and producing colorful fashion fabrics. The company initially focused on the Dutch and Dutch-Indonesian markets. By the end of the 19th century, the West-African market was also well developed. After the Second World War, this became Vlisco's main market. Today, Vlisco is an undisputed market leader in Benin, Nigeria, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast and the Congo.

At Vlisco, the existing JD Edwards ERP system is linked to the Quintiq software solution. The two environments were integrated seamlessly. Delivery performance has improved and Vlisco has more insight into its production flows and capacity availability. This enables the production department to make informed decisions on the work that needs to be completed and the optimal sequence for it. With Quintiq, Vlisco has reduced lead time by 50 percent and work in progress by 18 percent, and improved delivery reliability from 50-60% to 80-90%.
"After we had analyzed and modeled our production processes, we incorporated them into the planning system. Next, planners and production staff were trained, and then the system went live. All this went very smoothly. Now, we will work on fine-tuning the system. With this, we also receive excellent support from Quintiq".

Manager of Planning and Warehouses,
