manufacturing revolves around three entities customers, banks and suppliers. A customer gives a sales order to the company and this forms the basis for production planning. Raw material is purchased and dispatched to the mills. Receipts and payments are made through banks. Before the ERP development, most of the work was done manually resulting in inaccuracies both incorrect and missing entries.

With the new system, the group wanted to maintain

its procedures. ERP has enabled accountability, accuracy, and transparency without breaking the existing workflow.



facilitates a company wide integrated information systems covering all functional areas such as manufacturing sales and distribution accounts Payables & receivables inventory management human resources etc.

steps in development of an ERP software package

1.Defining the problem:It includes feeding of data (i.e. specifications of input and output processing requirements).Thus to design such a system one requires to know various parameters of textile. Fiber module Yarn module

Technical parameters like yarn count, strength,

weight, twist, quality ratio, breaking strength. Purchasing Module procurement of required raw materials. It automates the processes of identifying potential suppliers, negotiating price, awarding purchase order to the supplier, and billing processes.
Inventory Control Module The activities of inventory control involves in identifying inventory requirements, setting targets ,monitoring item usages, reconciling the inventory balances, and reporting inventory status.

ERP Sales Module Revenues from sales are live blood for commercial

organizations. Sales module implements functions of order placement, order scheduling, shipping and invoicing. Finance module:- How the finance comes and how it is been utilized. Total flow of money (Cash/Bank) and total expenditures will be reflected here. HR module:- HR modules routinely maintain a complete employee database including contact information, salary details, attendance, performance evaluation and promotion of all employees.

Designing the programme

The first step is to input incoming orders, check the

feasibility of requested dates for delivery, suggest possible delivery, allow orders to be accepted via internet, order taking, booking of stocks. Second step is article coding (giving codes to different end products). Planning is next step Next step is checking of product manufacturing

Debugging ; It is the procedure of correcting the

errors. Testing:- Checking of correction of individual programme as well as complete system. Documentation :- It gives full description of package and details for executing the system. Maintenance :- It is the preservation of complete package. Redesign:- Extension and changes as per the requirements of individual situation.

Datatex has created TIM a specialized ERP

(Enterprise Resource Planning) product addressing the information requirements of all segments of the textile .

Benefits of TIM

Information integration with unique database.

Business process streamlining. Optimal use of manufacturing resources. Monitoring of profit margins. Quick response Improved customer service. Higher quality, less waste. Reduction of work in process and inventory. On time deliveries.

TIM consists of the following integrated functional

modules: Sales: for order acceptance, shipping, and invoicing, Planning: for optimizing and scheduling of production orders Manufacturing: for the management of the production cycle, including dye-house management, and quality control Inventory & Purchasing: for the optimization of reordering, stock control, and valuation policies Costing: for the monitoring and control of standard and actual costs.

COBRA/TRP: (for stock manufacturing) VIP: (for order-driven manufacturing) COPS: manages the entire order cycle from acceptance and entry to picking list, packing list, shipping and invoicing. TPM: (for third-party manufacturers) ECHO: the e-business module which allows orders to be accepted via the Internet.


working from a given budget and production plan, calculates material and capacity requirements necessary for the completion of the specified processes. VIP: checks stock availability and manufacturing capacity allocating and scheduling resources to the critical production steps. DISPO: launches production orders and identifies divergence of orders being processed from planned production schedules.

DISPO: allows planning, launching and tracking of

production activities across the whole textile production cycle. CATS: handles fault reporting and mapping, optimizing the cutting of pieces at each inspection table, recording quality and rectification details for each piece.


MASH: manages and evaluates raw materials and

finished products in terms of inventory levels, requisitions and allocations MRS: defines purchasing and stock policies by specifying minimum inventory levels, re-order quantities and replenishment times. SRS: allow authorized personnel to enter purchase requisitions. SOS: handles purchasing up to the issuing of the order and the checking of purchase invoices.

MAIS: calculates standard costs (direct costs or full

costs) for all articles, calculates contribution margins and indicates the production mix required to maximize profitability MACO: calculates actual production costs and indicates divergence from standard costs.

Umble and Umble describe 10 categories of ERP

implementation failures which area as follows: Poor leadership from top management Automating existing redundant or non-value-added processes Unrealistic expectations, Poor project management In adequate education and training Trying to maintain the status quo

Mismatch between the system capabilities and the

organizations processes and procedures Inaccurate data Implementation viewed as an IT project Significant technical difficulties.
