Apparel has always been a global industry, from sourcing to manufacturing to shipping. This globalization has proved to be a daunting task when evaluating and monitoring each phase of the supply chain. The apparel industry is largely run by corporations that outsource their production needs resulting in extremely widespread supply chains. The understanding of the supply chain management (SCM) process requires either hands on experience or real time data driven software. This software can be a great asset to university apparel students in learning the process of apparel production from the manufacturing facility to the retail store.
