dear friends,

 

can anybody explain me about sap implementation in textile & cement industry.what type of process it is?either repetitive or pp-pi.

 

also i need the production process in textile industry.

(about yarn,weaving,knitting,woven fabric,knitted fabric etc.)

pl help.

 

full points will be given.

 

 

regards

    SAP Implementation in Textile Industry:

    In India Arvind Mill implementaated SAP, SCM for their Business solution.

     

    Following are the business processes considered in the Textile Industry.

     

    Texturizing

    Spinning

    Weaving

    Knitting

    Dyeing and Printing

    Finishing

    Cut and Sew (Garmenting)

     

    It uses PP-PI

    1. The Followig are the scenarios that are applicable for the textile industry.

     

    Scenario-1:For Spinning Industries

    From Cotton - Yarn = Spinning

     

    *For this we can go with Strategy 10,20 - Make to stock and make to order scenario.

    *You can have Simple Bom,Routing,Production version etc.

    • We need work with Discrete manufacturing principle where one order will be created at each stage.

    • Discrete orders will help them to trace the cost at the order level - which is very important for the Spinning industry

     

     

     

    Scenario-2:For Weaving of Yarn dyed fabrics

     

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

    Yarn dyed fabrics - which is the FG- Has to be created as Configurable material and work with make to order scenario

     

    *Neeed Super bom

    *Need Routing

    *This shoule exclusively use the Variant configuration

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

    *Costing will be done at the Sales order level.

    *Discrete orders will help them to trace the cost at the order level -

     

    Scenario-3:For Weaving of Grey Fabrics

     

    We need to work with Make to stock / Make to order Strategy

    ie)10,20

    *this will have a simple BOM,Routing etc..

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

     

     

    Scenario-4:Dyeing industry - ( exclusively for the MTO yarn dyed fabrics)

    Dyeing industry - ( exclusively for the MTO yarn dyed fabrics)

     

    *Where the shades will be changing each and every fabric

    *Neeed Super bom

    *Need Routing

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

     

    This shoule exclusively use the Variant configuration

     

    Scenario-5:Dyeing of Polyster yarns with standardshades

     

     

     

    Dyeing industry _For Polyster yarns( For the Aftermarket business where we have set of Shade bank- or we repeatedly produce the same shade)

     

    *We can use the Variant material concept

    *This is a derivative fromt the configurable material

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle Or PP- PI can also be used

     

    Scenario-6:Knitting industry -Grey fabric

     

    *For this we can go with Strategy 10,20 - Make to stock and make to order scenario.

    *You can have Simple Bom,Routing,Production version etc.

    *We can work with Discrete manufacutring

     

    Scenario-6:Knitting industry -Yarn dyed fabric

     

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

    Yarn dyed fabrics - which is the FG- Has to be created as Configurable material and work with make to order scenario

     

    *Neeed Super bom

    *Need Routing

    *This shoule exclusively use the Variant configuration

    *We can work with Discrete manufacturing principle

     

     

     

    Apart from all the above R/3 usage...we can also implement the AFS for the Garment industry.

     

    All the above information is given out of the previous implementation we have come across...There can be different views/methods/process to achieve the end result..

     

    This is all concluded with series of discsusion considering the process, people and the project environment..

     

    let me know if you need any specific details

    Hi

     

    There are 2 process in Textile Manufacturing

     

    1)one is Manufacturing of Fabric for which the rawmaterial is wool

    2)Second is Manufacturing of Apparels for which the rawmaterial is Fabric

     

    So the Business Process for the first one is as follows

    Washing

    Combing

    Recombing

    Dyeing

    Spinning

    Weaving

    Finnal sizing

    Packing

     

    For this IS mill is more suitable. Bucause there are some functionalities which could be useful exclusively for textile manufacturing

     

    I'm not sure the Business Process for the second one. But I guess

     

    May be Initial sizing

    Cuting

    knitting

    and etc

     

    I guess may be SAP AFS could be more useful

     

    Hope you are clear

     

    regards

    Vijay

    I am trying to give you the details about textile industry only. Answering to your first part of the question: Textile industry comprises of both repetitive and process related process. The repetitive process may be for the businesses dealing with yarn spinning, weaving, knitting, texturising etc. The dyeing units can be categorized as process industries.

     

    But this is only a general way of categorization. The 'spinning units' itself can be a combination of repetitive and process related business. To elaborate, spinning industries doing blends viz polyester & cotton, polyester & wool etc, wherein you may be requiring to combine both the processes. Because there are certain processes like 'tinting' where a process industry related activity do come into play. You take the example of weaving, where the preparatory processes of weaving like sizing and post weaving processes like de-sizing are actually related to the 'process related' business.

     

    To your second part of the question about the process it's difficult to give the production details of all the textile sector. However please clarify the details required like whether a flow chart of the production or regarding the total business.
