Benefits an Apparel Manufacturer gains from GudAnuf's Manufacturing Manager. 

 

Manufacturing Manager enables an Apparel Manufacturer to track and manage the Operational Work Flow. By providing a central location for Sales and Manufacturing into an extensible application everyone is able to view information germane to their needs.  This enables managers and users of the system concise consistent real-time information to make informed decisions based on accurate current knowledge.

Key Business Objects, available as Enterprise Data Object Modules (EDOM), are be implemented as required without needing other departments to alter their workflow.  Once an EDOM is implemented more data becomes available as other areas come into the system.

The Base manufacturing manager system includes base implementations of the Customer, Style, Order, Salesforce and Invoice EDOM objects.  The base system allows connected users access to information. 

Depending on the configuration desired, once information has been entered into the system, pieces can be made available internally over an Intranet as well as externally of the internet and does not always require a fat client. Options to run from an Application Server, Browser and web services are available separately or can be combined.

Implementing the base Web Configuration can allow External sales people, as well as customers (if desired) to have access to real time order and sales information.

An enhanced web configuration allows user to sign up and get special information such as vendor being allowed to view prices and place orders.  The Store front configuration allows for selling to the general public and includes a catalog and shopping cart.  Different Payments configurations such as PayPal and custom Gateways can be added.
