The Digitization Journey
A long-time Coats Digital customer, Industrias MyR already utilises FastReactPlan production planning solution, and is continuing its digitization journey with Coats Digital by adopting the market leading time-cost benchmarking solution, GSDCost. The solution will help Industrias MyR to utilise accurate standard minute values (SMVs) and provide a strong foundation for increased efficiency through better planning, balanced production lines and optimised capacity predictions, while concurrently delivering on CSR commitments.
The team at Industrias MyR recognised that a lack of manufacturing method standardisation was leading to subjective costing and inaccurate planning. As a result, it was difficult for the team to accurately calculate labour costs or gain complete visibility into the realistic manufacturing costs. Ultimately, this had a detrimental impact on profitability. Committed to innovation and continuous improvement on their digitization journey, Industrias MyR was looking for a fact-based approach to quantify and optimise manufacturing methods and costs.
With GSDCost, Industrias MyR will be able to use international standard motion codes and pre-determined times to establish and communicate open, fact-based garment costs based on sustainable method standards. This will allow MyR to eliminate over or under costing, and ensure that accurate, fair and sustainable labour costs are considered at an early stage of the product development cycle.
“As we continue to grow, we need to keep innovating and digitizing our business to improve our bottom line results, but also our employee well-being. Implementing GSDCost will allow us to accurately calculate fair labour costs, standardise our working methods and further improve our productivity.”Edgar Peña, Operations Manager,
