For administrating the product development of their collection, many brand owners and wholesale companies within fashion use Microsoft Excel or a PDM – Product Data Management – tool. Total Concept Group, developer and supplier of itSuitsFashion, offers two solutions as an addition to itSuitsFashion ERP. In this article we offer you more information about the differences and similarities between itSuitsFashion add-on PDM and Delogue.
itSuitsFashion add-on PDM
In the PDM module, additional product information like Bills of Material (BOM), size specifications and washing instructions can be defined. Based on the Ready Made Garment (RMG) quantity in the sales order or purchase order, the required raw materials can be calculated. When the raw materials are received in the own warehouse, a transfer order can be generated based on a purchase order of the RMG to be send to the production side. When the RMG is received back in the warehouse you are able to deduct the inventory of the raw material in the usage journal based on the usage in the BOM and the quantity received of the RMG. The itSuitsFashion add-on is suitable for fashion wholesalers specialized in CTM – Cut Make and Trim – production. It is also suitable for wholesale companies that want to add a technical construction sheet from NAV to the purchase order. We can develop a custom technical instruction sheet, based on your specific needs and requirements.
Delogue is an online PDM tool and a supplier portal in one, allowing communication, process and data to be shared. The communication related to the product development is centralized within the application, making the communication visible to all internal users and external partners. In the intuitive system, all relevant information about the RMG can be defined, such as BOM, size specifications and washing instructions. Delogue also offers functionality for monitoring and tracking (regarding to meeting deadlines). Thanks to a standard interface between itSuitsFashion and Delogue, data don’t have to be double entered. PDM tool Delogue is suitable for fashion wholesalers who need visibility and control over their product development and clear communication with suppliers.
Depending on your needs, it is also possible to combine the two PDM systems.
