Jonsson Manufacturing in Lesotho is a revolutionary workwear-focused business, supplying quality, strong and durable garments to the international market.

The implementation of TransLution™ was rolled out in three phases, ensuring that each phase was successful before moving on to the next.

Phase 1 – Receiving

Rolls of fabric arrive in bulk and TransLution™ creates a goods received note per roll which is serialised. The system captures quality checks against each roll and tracks quality samples so they can be traced back to the original roll they were taken from.

Phase 2 – Transfers

During this phase, functions were added to TransLution™ to move rolls around the warehouse and between bays. Because the rolls are serialised, the location of each serial number in its bin is tracked outside of Syspro.

Phase 3 – Picking for Jobs

The third phase allows users to pick items required per job. The user prints a pick slip but is also directed on the scanner where to go and what to pick. This allows users to get accustomed to the new system before removing the system of printed pick slips. If rolls need to be split and only part of a roll used, TransLution keeps track of both the parent and child rolls.

Once picking has been completed, users are required to scan everything once again to complete a final check. This scan also issues the items to the job using a business object post to SYSPRO.

Jonsson uses the TransLution™ query function which allows users to scan a barcode at any time even if they are in the middle of a job and see information about what they have scanned. They can scan either rolls or bays to see more information about each of them.

Jonsson plans to roll out TransLution™ in more areas of production in the future, including material quality, managing and tracking trims, as well as tracking crates.
