Manufacturas Eliot adopts FastReactPlan to manage increase in order volumes and complexity and reduce lead times

FastReactPlan has been selected to digitize production planning processes so that Manufacturas Eliot can manage its increasingly complex supply chain more effectively and synchronize manufacturing operations to meet increasing demand.

Coats Digital is pleased to announce that Colombian fashion textile group, Manufacturas Eliot SAS, has selected Coats Digital’s FastReactPlan to digitally transform its supply chain.

FastReactPlan will enable the company to respond in an agile and integrated way to growing market requirements, reduce its manufacturing lead times and manage its complex network of sewing manufacturers effectively.

Manufacturas Eliot Production


The vertically integrated manufacturer produces more than 20 million garments per year and employs over 4,500 workers across Colombia. 


The current market conditions require an increasingly agile response to changes in consumer demand and the traditional approach of producing garments, based on a projection and sell strategy, is no longer sustainable.

We required a flexible and efficient supply chain capable of producing ever shorter runs as well as more complex products in a shorter lead time. FastReactPlan’s simulation tools will make this possible, so that we can adjust our plan accordingly and respond quickly to demand changes, without sacrificing efficiency – whilst ensuring the workload of our sewing suppliers is always guaranteed.
