Monte Carlo owned two huge production units that were located in two distinct manufacturing houses.
One unit was placed in manufacturing house of Woolen knitted garments. Production of this particular unit was sold to multi brand outlets and exclusive brand outlets (MC only). Within this unit, 90% of the manufacturing work was done in-house and rest 10 %, which was mainly embroidery, was third party job work.
The other unit was placed in the manufacturing house of Apparels.Production of this unit too was sold to multi brand outlets and exclusive brand outlets (MC only). 10 % of the manufacturing work of this unit was done in-house and 90 %, which was mainly embroidery was job work.
The entire manufacturing process was outside SAP. Though there was a WIP system which was used to track the in-process material and for printing the bar codes, but keeping regular tab on master data, inventory management,production processes, third party job work, sales and distribution etc became cumbersome,and details began missing out.
Hence, there was a dire need of sector specific solution!
