Coral JIT40 follows the principles of lean production and just in time control technology, two separate organisational concepts that were combined and successfully implemented in 2005 at industrial laundry Lavanderia Adriatica srl (Torviscosa, UD, Italy).
Damiano Ghini, owner of Adriatica, collaborated closely with software developers and system and machinery producers in order to merge these two theories, creating an advanced technological infrastructure: a software suite that enables laundries to grow, specialise, and operate competitively on the market. Thanks to his computer training and context analysis expertise, together with the experience he gained in the field and his own personal sensitivity, Ghini was able to predict the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
In 2013, Ghini filed a just in time patent as applied to industrial laundries; a few years later he became majority shareholder at Cogito srl, a software house with a history of over 25 years in the sector. This was the turning point: Cogito completely reengineered the product and brought it to its current version, leading to the creation of Coral JIT40 (acronym of Just in Time 4.0), an application suite based on Coral architecture and open source ERP Odoo.
Distributed in its prototype version at the beginning of 2017, the software became fully operational in December of the same year. Today, Coral JIT40 has already garnered 3 important references.
