Aster Textiles opts for Coats FastReactPlan

Istanbul-headquartered Aster Textiles has selected Coats Digital’s FastReactPlan solution to digitally transform its manual planning processes by connecting more accurate planning and forecasting data across departments, in a bid to improve efficiencies and significantly reduce lead times.

Family-owned Aster Textiles was founded in 1993 and has grown rapidly to become one of Turkey’s Top 10 exporters of textiles and ready-made garments. It operates four large, state-of-the-art production facilities in Turkey and Serbia which manufacture a wide range of knitted and woven fabrics and clothing, in addition to a leading line of sportswear – supplied to nearly 30 global customer brands in ten countries. With an annual turnover in excess of $100 million and over 2,000 staff, all Aster factories hold Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Recycled Claim Standard (RCS), and Organic 100 Content Standard (OCS) production certificates.

“Aster Textiles utilises a LEAN production system in every phase of production to maximise productivity,” said the company’s process development director Zumrut Gungor. “We place great importance on automation across all our factory operations and aim to continuously improve our production system infrastructure in line with the best technological advancements available.

“On top of Coats Digital’s expertise, FastReactPlan simply offered the most optimum scheduling management tool on the market and we expect that this proven technology will ultimately enable us to balance production processes more efficiently and significantly improve our delivery performance so that we have much more time available to focus on other areas of our business growth.”

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.
