The Perahan efficiently controls the unique tasks confronting the garment and other similar industry. The tasks from taking orders for multiple styles, colors, and sizes, through the co-ordination of all resources required for production, to the tracking of dye lots and pieces of fabric are systematically performed. This all begins with a matrix which accepts orders for a line based upon only those styles, colors, and sizes appropriate for this garment. Resource requirements are exploded from bill of material, with routing, which incorporates all available options. Integration of Order Entry and Production with all other Perahan modules is a feature of this system. Strong data retrieval capabilities and an integrated tool set add to the power of the application.
