Sourcing Automation & Management (SAM)
is Byte's dynamic apparel software
solution that automates the shipping of raw material inventory and
cut parts to contractors or internal plants, tracking WIP and maintaining a perpetual inventory at remote facilities, creating the
paperwork associated with each shipment for both in-country and out-of-country documents, receiving the raw material at the
contracting facility, and receiving back the finished product into the distribution center. This apparel ERP software for global sourcing is
one of the primary modules in Byte's Apparel Software Suite
That are essential to the
Apparel Manufacturing Industry.
SAM automates many of the manual procedures that get initiated when a production order is created. Once a production order
is entered, the system will create a material pick ticket for a cut or a group of cuts tied to a specific manufacturing site,
be it your own plant or a contractor. This pick ticket allows the inventory manager to determine where the raw materials should
be pulled to meet the raw material demand.
Once the pick ticket is posted, raw material cases are scanned into a shipping case using a wireless barcode scanner (PDL), the
system creates a shipment with all the proper shipping documentation: Bill of Lading, Packing Ship, Commercial Invoice, Value
Statement, user defined documents, and automatically transfers the inventory to the contractor/plant location. Upon delivery of
the materials, the contractor/plant receives the materials, which automatically transfers the goods from in-transit into their
inventory. Once the raw material inventory is consumed the contractor/plant connects via the Internet through a filter that
allows them to consume only their inventory for their cuts providing a perpetual inventory at their site.
Once the finished goods inventory is produced and received, finished goods inventory case labels can be printed for the
contractor/internal plant to affix to the cases to be received into the distribution center.
