Supply chain management of Allen Solly:-

Let's take a little look at Allen Solly logistics for a piece of clothing; when you buy it from
the shop, the shop needs to make sure it remains in stock of all of its items, so needs to
predict sales and order more from the warehouse based on their stock levels. The warehouse,
similarly needs to manage deliveries to all of the stores, stock levels and space in the
warehouse as well as managing deliveries from factories and manufacturers.

Manufacturers then need to manage orders and deadlines while making sure they have a
steady supply of materials to manufacture the product with as well as managing deliveries
from other factories in the case of more complex items of clothing which require assembly.

That's the chain for just one item, where in a shop there may be a huge range of colours and
sizes for that item as well as hundreds of other items all with their own variations. Keeping
track of all of this soon becomes a completely insurmountable task and in comes the need for
an ERP system.

ERP is designed to keep track of stock levels everywhere from all the branches of a store to
warehouses, manage factory orders and deadlines as well as material resource planning for
the factories keeping track of material orders and predicting requirements based on orders
and their deadlines. The way this is managed is by sharing all of the order information from
the store level all the way down to the manufacturers and even the designers into a central
location where management can be centralised the whole process can then be managed from
the top down. This very easily turns a phenomenally complicated task into a far simpler one.
