Abstract:

The DLA and DSCP sponsored Apparel Research Network ARN programs primary goals are to reduce total supply chain costs and inventory levels while minimizing retail shortages. The foundation for the achievement of these goals is the existence of a web accessible database that provides total supply chain asset visibility to all functions that make decisions or consume apparel items. PDITs ARN assignments were to create the web accessible database, create decision support tools that utilize this database, and develop tools for use by apparel manufacturers and bill-and-hold contractors that capture the data needed to fill voids in the total supply chain asset visibility picture. PDIT initiated three key projects to address these assignments. The ARN Asset Visibility System database AAVS DataMart was developed to create the central repository for total supply chain asset visibility. VIM Virtual Item Manager was created to provide visibility and decision support tools. VIM-ASAP ARN Supply-chain Automated Processing was developed to support apparel manufacturers and bill-and-hold contractors while capturing order and shipment status data needed to make more informed decisions.
