Produce on Demand: How to rationalize your supplies to produce as close as possible to sales?

production on demand e-scm

To meet the requirements of the AGEC law and new consumption patterns, the textile industry must align its production and source as closely as possible based on sales.


Stocks are expensive and the destruction of unsold items is now prohibited, brands must now focus on rationalizing supplies , buying in small quantities and planning orders as best as possible.


It is important to master your supply structure and to remain agile in your production to be able to react as quickly as possible.

For more flexible and more responsible production

adjust your e-scm productionWith shorter supply cycles and real-time production splitting, brands can consumer demand


The establishment of a collaborative platform bringing together all the players in the supply chain helps brands to supervise their raw materials and components, their production in real time and makes it possible to adjust production quantities according to sales.


This way their process becomes more agile and they have the ability to react quickly based on customer needs and expectations. By adjusting their production as closely as possible, this also allows them to limit their stocks.

e-SCM, a collaborative solution for streamlined, agile production

e-scm agile collaborative platformWith the e-SCM solution, procurement, production and distribution are digitalized and optimized so that they can respond agilely and flexibly to business needs, moving towards streamlined production .


This agility goes in the direction of shortening lead times and limiting stocks which will allow the brand to make significant gains (reduced costs, shortened time to market, increased profitability).

Limiting unsold items also helps with recycling and upcycling issues.


e-SCM supports the implementation of this new model which tends towards more responsible and more sustainable production for brands.

Maximize the service rate

To increase sales potential according to the specificities of each of its distribution channels

Gain in upstream logistics efficiency

To reduce costs linked to non-quality or delays and make the planning of customer order shipments more reliable.

Ensure total traceability of its production

To be able to demonstrate to end consumers how CSR is respected.

Focus on one of the key functions of e-SCM: “SPLIT”

SPLIT” function of the Purchase Order allows you to quickly and simply split an order while retaining all the original data. This function is found at all stages of the process to meet the needs for flexibility, responsiveness and traceability while adapting to industrial constraints .


This involves defining, with the supplier, a production and delivery schedule based on the production capacity of the factory, the replenishment times for the Raw Material or the delivery schedule expected by the distribution channels.


It is possible to link production batches to Raw Material batches or origins to have very detailed traceability

In the event of a production delay or to respond to a commercial emergency, the SPLIT allows you to define priority shipping on part of the production by choosing an express transport mode to speed up delivery to the warehouse.


For example, it is also possible to respond to a customer requirement by receiving the quantity of product to finalize the preparation of a customer order for example and avoid delivery in several installments which can cause penalties or additional transport costs.


The brand can separate a manufacturing batch with specific packaging instructions or distribute production across different warehouses with different shipping conditions and thus reduce customer order preparation costs and promote CrossDock, for example.

e-SCM, a tool for supply chain managers

To succeed in their transformation with agility, brands will have to accelerate their digitalization, rethink their supply process and their internal/external organizational model.

Supply Chain managers will thus be able to rely on the e-SCM solution to secure supplies, manage production planning and guarantee product traceability, in consultation with suppliers.
