In addition to standard ERP solutions, caniasERP offers industry-specific and multi-platform support for the carpet industry.
The most widely used types of carpets today are acrylic, polypropylene, polyester and wool depending on the raw materials used in the carpet. Carpet manufacturing companies can supply the yarn through the facilities they have established in their own buildings and also they can supply acrylic yarns, which are used in the interior market especially in the interior market, by direct purchase. The warp yarns used in production, jute yarn and other chemicals are supplied from domestic and foreign markets
The main processes that can be followed in caniasERP in the Carpet Sector are:
- Sales (Bidding, Order, Dispatch and Invoice Management),
- Warehouse Management and Quality Control,
- Product Design
- Production - Planning and Machine Loading,
- Machine Maintenance,
- Finite Capacity Planning,
- Cost analysis,
- Finance / Accounting,
- Human resources,
- Advanced Reporting (OLAP),
- Export and Import Operations,
- Merchandising Management.
In addition to these basic processes in the carpet sector, the following sectoral solutions are at the forefront.
Effective Variant Configurator and Usage
With the caniasERP variant concept, carpets and yarns can be managed with minimum preliminaries in all processes of the company. With this concept, the product code is defined as quality + version while carpet definitions are made. All remaining variants are defined in the variant key. Variant properties of carpet;
· Edge form
· Ground, border and overlock colors
As a result, Only infinite number of alternatives can be produced by using the material card, product tree and route prefixes made on the basis of quality and the above variant properties. This concept is important in terms of labor productivity in the sector; As it may be desirable to use it in any other qualities that are being worked on, for example the pattern feature. In this way, a new quality design can be used without any prior identification. On the raw material side, the color property is generally used as a variant property in the yarns.
Handheld Terminals at Each Stage, Touch Screen, Online Job Order Management and Customer Order Tracking
An important feature that caniasERP offers to users is the Online Job Order Management tool. The work orders followed by the barcode number are given to the production area by planning. Operational orders and work orders are initiated and terminated by the operators themselves. The barcode is very important so that the system can be used effectively. Operators can enter system start preparation-finish and production start-finish or stop data with minimum steps with barcode reader and touch screens without using any keyboard. With this application;
· Online team of production field,
· Customer orders follow operational and instantly respond to customer,
· Performance follow-up (hand labor), machine utilization rates (on machines)
· Productivity analysis,
· Standard times are measured by caniasERP itself,
· Effective or pre-cost effective data collection,
· Online stock follow-up (with product approvals and raw material consumptions with operational approvals).
In addition, applications such as hand-held terminals, transfer between depots, sales returns, counting, etc. can be managed via the user-friendly mobile screens via caniasERP.
Order-based Customer Special Stock Follow-up
Product inventory management based on customer order is very important in the industry. All stocks are managed with an order (external order no) number given to the customer order. Any system in the system can report which customer order it belongs to when it reports the stock in the warehouse. In the companies that have Home Office sales channels, production stages are made. In this case, a separate order for production can be opened. When triggering the order production process, it is stated that the customer does not have a special order. With caniasERP functional approach, it is easy to plan the production of customer specific or stochastic products.
Entries related to the purchasing of consumed pile, warp and jute yarns connected to the work emrine can be followed by lot numbers given by the supplier. At the delivery note entries, the barcodes produced by the system are affixed onto the pallets and these barcodes are used in the transfer operations to be performed later. The bar code for the yarn speeds up the transfer process and speeds up the counting process that will be done in the future. In instant stock reports, batch quantities of yarn kg and package can be listed quickly.
The situation is somewhat more complicated when the work is produced due to emrine. In any case, there is a serial number which is not unique in itself. This number is produced by the system and is the only number used in production, shipment, quality, apparel, counting and if any return processes. The number indicates both the technical knowledge of the product and the customer order, and is the industry's must-see for material traceability. Party tracking policies are managed through caniasERP support tables and the sector includes specific resiliency.
Sales Practices and Fast Data Entry
The surplus of optional features (pattern, size, pallet combinations etc.) made it difficult to place orders in the carpet industry and it became a necessity to design sector specific applications in addition to standard order entry screens. Different sales channels can be mentioned in the sector. The names of these channels and canias are ERP solutions;
Export (Customer Special): Fast data entry with matrix order entry application.
· Region Dedicated (Customer Specific): Fast data entry with matrix order entry application.
· Home Office (Stock Order): Fast data entry with pattern-available stock queries.
· Web (Stock Order): Web portal- caniasERP integration and online order entry and tracking.
· Merchandising: If merchandising business processes are available,caniasERP Retail Management Module will follow these processes in a modern way.
Labeling operations in the sector vary depending on the customer. The customer may want to see the desired code on the label instead of the pattern or material code defined in the system and to make a few different carpets as a team or set. With caniasERP, firstly the current card labeling parameters are defined as preliminary information, if desired, labeling operations can be carried out on this preliminary information or only specific specifications for that order can be changed in the order document.
The full integration of all patterns generated by the pattern office with the used ERP software is important in that this information can be used in other processes of the operator. Designs prepared in the design program are recorded with caniasERP system, variant features and pixel equivalents of the colors used in the patterns. In addition, images in bmp format are automatically saved in the image folder on the caniasERP server, and the revised data base and patterns are updated. Otherwise, these images can be used throughout the system (eg creating plans, loading workbenches, printing labels, etc.).
The designs are in all processes of the operator; especially in planning, determination of raw material consumption and ordering over the web.
The new pattern requirement can be found in the sample workings as well as on the orders processed in the system. Pattern control should be done through sales orders and automatic pattern work orders should be created via application. Pattern job orders are a good tool for measuring the performance of staff.
Calculation of Production Consumption, MRP and Fashion Factor
The first materials and materials used in carpet production;
· Calculation of production expense, MRP and fashion factor
· The first materials and materials used in carpet production
· Pile yarns
· Threading yarns
· It's in the form of chemicals.
Other materials used other than pile yarns are calculated from the product trees defined in the caniasERP product design module by direct factor. For the calculation of the amount of pile yarn, Weft density, weave type, NM coefficient is used; Pile height and pixel percentages are taken from the pattern information.
The yarn in the sector is generally stapled with the safety stock. Parameters in the material master records such as the quantity of safety batch, min or max batch sizes, reorder levels, alternative material definitions must be color-based.
Work Load, Bench Integration and Scheduling
Unlike other sectors, the task of loading workbenches is a rather difficult task in the carpet. There are a number of rules in order to decide which order to touch on which machine. It is also possible to connect more than one order item to more than one route with a minimum width of drawstring minimum wage principle. The decision to install the counter with caniasERP can be made on an order basis so that it will be determined which order the order will be touched on which counter and which counter of that counter.
The loading decisions taken in caniasERP are loaded on the counter with the software of the counter. Operational approvals or posture records are automatically transferred to caniasERP with feedback from the loom.
The next time you decide to touch the counter or bench where the related order is to be touched, the order in which it will touch. It is possible to schedule jobs with the priority rules defined by caniasERP and manage these jobs with the gannt scheme and thus to give smooth term to customer orders.
Operational Quality Control at Each Stage
We can divide quality control applications into two in caniasERP.
· Goods check-in.
· Operational control.
· Goods input quality control is made at the yarn entrance to the purchase order. The goods are first taken to the quality stock level (the level of materials waiting for quality control). The material board is checked according to the quality criteria and sample plans specified in the quality parameters. Sample plans can be created parametrically according to the supplier. This practice is particularly essential for supplier evaluation. The result is a transfer to the available level or block level at the quality level.
Operational quality control can be performed before, during, or after operation. The confirmation result will be transferred to the appropriate stock location. Sectoral quality criteria and sample plans are entered into the system. Quality Control Criteria can be associated with material cards and material-supplier basis rules can be created.
Some operational quality control criteria specific to the sector
· Carpet pile height (bottom-top and right-left separately)
· Error checks (Abraj, lot difference etc.)
· Weft Extension
Effective Cost Tracking
One of the sine qua non of the industry is cost. Cost is managed in two ways by caniasERP:
· Standard cost (Pre-production cost analysis)
· Actual cost (post-production real cost)
Based on the standard cost study, Product Trees (Prescription) and Operational Data, it is working to determine the approximate cost before production. Standard Cost is used in the process of bid and price analysis. Actual cost is the actual cost of materials consumed, approval times and costs. The customer for the past turnaround can be done on an order basis. At the end of the period Standard Cost - Actual Cost comparison is reported by caniasERP and deviations can be detected.
Fason operations are not widespread in the industry, but are used especially for dyeing yarns on the raw material side, spooling or making single yarns from two separate yarns. The standard facsimile concept offered by the canias ERP to the user can be used for yarn spinning.
On the carpet side, freeway operations are partly preferred for engraving and leather bonding operations. For this it can be added to the carpet production emrine fason operation or the fason service can be matched with the invoice job invoice operation. In the sector, it may be preferable to purchase as commercial goods instead of carpeting
