Coats Digital has announced that Norban Group – leading vertically-integrated circular knitwear manufacturer – has selected its FastReactPlan solution to digitally transform its manual planning processes into a connected single platform.
The implementation of FastReactPlan will enable Norban Group to better align Time and Action (T&A) priorities, connect more-accurate planning and forecasting data, improve OTDP, and eliminate unnecessary firefighting across the business.
Shafiqul Alom Sumon, Director, Marketing and Merchandising, Norban Group, commented, “FastReactPlan will help us become a more effective vertically integrated Knit-Composite manufacturer by quickly identifying bottlenecks, reducing firefighting and providing the essential KPI monitoring and visibility we need to keep the business moving forward.”
Sumon further added that, from this point on, priorities at the group will be more aligned and integrated as FastReactPlan should enable them to handle the challenges of current planning processes better while increasing productivity and improving delivery performances.
It’s pertinent to mention here that, part of Coats Digital’s core Manufacturing Solution Suite, Fast React Plan is a dynamic, visual production planning and control tool that optimises delivery, efficiency and lead times. Designed and developed specifically for apparel and footwear manufacturers, it helps companies integrate capacity, critical path and materials into an integrated planning system.
Md Ariful Islam Arif, Sr. Manager, Coats Digital Bangladesh, commented, “We are delighted that Norban Group has joined our growing global family of newly digitized fashion manufacturing partners. Norban has been fully committed to introducing innovative solutions and advanced industry automation throughout its state-of-the-art production facilities wherever possible, and we are honoured to be helping the company progress its digitization programme with FastReactPlan. We have observed a lot of enthusiasm for digital transformation among the Norban team and look forward to the successful roll out of FastReactPlan so that Norban can quickly capitalise on advanced production methods to ensure it consistently remains ahead of the game.”
