• Loro Piana

Loro Piana is an Italian textile and luxury goods producer. The company’s textile division has been supplying the finest wool fabrics to the most exclusive clients for more than six generations.

Loro Piana produces textiles at its facilities in Italy. What sets it apart from its competitors is its finishing department, where expert craftsmen refine luxurious fabrics to exceed the quality levels found in the marketplace.

Loro Piana chose the Quintiq planning and optimization solution to schedule machines and personnel at its finishing department. The project began in May 2011 and went live in October the same year.

The company began to see improvements in the first few months of 2012 with the rationalization of planning, enhancement of analysis capabilities, the ability to predict availability of batches of finished products, and visibility of the machine load. This made it possible to avoid bottlenecks, increase productivity, and maintain the level of service to clients.
Quintiq inspired us with its proof of concept. It was impressive how quickly they were able to model our world including the rules, constraints and relevant resources with their Solution. We immediately saw the advantages Quintiq could bring us.
