Production automation system for Gelal Corap

Gelal Corap Sanayi A.S. is a leading socks manufacturer in Turkey with two production facilities in Çankırı and Istanbul. The company also has more than 1500 employees.


Lack of flexibility, production planning, and control capabilities

Historically, the company did not have an all-in-one solution for business management and production planning — this lead to a range of inefficiencies, a lack of flexibility, poor planning, and control.

The main challenges for Gelal were:

Multiple business automation solutions, including two ERP systems working simultaneously
A lack of capabilities to optimize employee performance and knitting machines effectiveness
Warehouse management
The need to integrate an ERP with industrial robots used at the production facilities
Planning for the equipment load

Real-time production control, better planning, and labor cost reduction

The implementation process was divided into several stages. First, DND, the 1Ci partner in Turkey, conducted a thorough analysis of the Gelal business processes and requirements. Then, 1C:Enterprise ERP integration with industrial robots was designed. Afterward, the employees and the production machines' performance evaluation module was developed. A planning system for the knitting machines was created as well. After these preparations, warehouse management, finance, and accounting business processes were automated.

A total of 125 seats were automated, including 65 users in the Çankırı factory and 60 workings in the Istanbul facility. The whole project took approximately three years: one year for the Çankırı factory automation and two years for Istanbul.

Overall, the Gelal company was able to achieve the following results:

Due to the more efficient business processes, the production potential has increased. As a result, global sports goods distribution brands, the biggest Gelal socks purchases, increased the volume of their orders by 20%.
Labor cost was reduced by 10% due to the integration of the 1C:Enterprise with the industrial robots.
The implementation of the industrial machines management module allowed achieving 7-8% productivity improvement.
Management reporting became 20% faster.
