Driving Change through Big Data

Digital Transformation Practices

We multiplied the efficiency level of our sustainable design and production processes with our digital transformation practices. We use 3D design programs to bring our designs to life using less world resources.

In order to present our unique designs to our customers in the fastest way possible with the best visual quality, we use a 360-degree high quality photography booth.

Thanks to our powerful online showroom infrastructure, we offer our 3D designs and 360-degree images that enable us to offer our customers a magnificent experience.

We create digital libraries in order to keep all the information we have acquired in our design and fabric R&D processes in our corporate memory. We use the latest technology fabric surface imaging equipment to digitalize the properties of fabric surfaces in the best quality.

We support the competencies of our expert employees, which is the most important element for the effective use of these digital tools, with the training content we prepare on the most up-to-date technology and applications thanks to our e-learning platform.

Through numerous data sets, big data enables us to reach beyond our perception and improve our judgment…

We have determined our software development strategies under three main areas in order to manage our digital transformation processes in the most effective way.

  • Software developments on SAP: We develop in-house SAP software with our ABAP software developers and Adobe Document designers.
  • We are creating a software portal where we develop non-SAP software.
  • We develop software with low code platforms.

In addition to these main strategies, we aim to make sure that all third-party software we choose must be open-source.

With the software and digital tools we have developed in-house with the signature touches of our talented experts, we measure most of the data in our processes, and transform them into meaningful outputs that support our strategic decisions.

In order to improve our data analysis capabilities by managing our entire process with a single ERP system, we renewed our entire system with the SAP software. SAP provides an integrated application to create solutions for many major challenges our industry faces. It will make our business processes faster and more efficient.

Our 2018 investment in the functional knitting facility was specially designed according to the Sun Group Industry 4.0 transformation strategies.

The latest automation technology is used in the production line, which enables machine operators to monitor machines with smartwatches that give instant warning to any production problem.

Monitor and manage

Capacity planning is done by custom-developed software and can be monitored instantly with digital screens. The main raw material yarns are monitored in the warehouse with the RFID system, so they can be easily found in the stock area and can be easily assigned to each machine on an order basis.

We have started to monitor and manage all of our fabric production processes in integration with a radical digital transformation thanks to the Production Execution System (MES), which we developed with our own resources.

Improving all aspects of sustainability

We set important goals for the practices of improving all aspects of sustainability by monitoring all operations along the value chain, which is one of the most difficult steps of digitalization. We systematically evaluate and manage all the data that we can measure for now with Balanced Scorecard (BSC) and Objectives and Key Results (OKR) frameworks.

We aim to bring a different perspective to the monitoring of the textile value chain with disruptive innovation software ideas for traceability very soon.
