An ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning software manages multiple business processes in a single-centralized location. With the right tools and features, a modern ERP solution can monitor and track quality control at different stages of the manufacturing and production process. Here are some ways which an ERP solution can handle quality control for fashion, apparel and footwear businesses:

  1. Inspection and Testing: ERP software can track inspection and testing results for raw materials, work-in-progress items, and finished products. This can include data on quality checks performed during various stages of production, such as fabric inspection, dyeing and finishing, cutting, and sewing, and final assembly.
  2. Non-Conformance Management: ERP software can help businesses manage non-conformance issues, such as defects, deviations, and non-compliance. This includes identifying the root cause of the issue, assigning corrective actions, and tracking the progress of corrective actions to ensure that the issue is resolved.
  3. Traceability: ERP software can provide traceability features, enabling businesses to track the movement of products, components, and materials throughout the supply chain. This can help ensure that materials and components meet quality standards and can be traced back to their origin in the event of a quality issue or recall.
  4. Supplier Management: ERP software can help businesses manage their relationships with suppliers, including tracking supplier performance and monitoring the quality of materials and components received from suppliers.
  5. Analytics and Reporting: ERP software can provide reporting and analytics capabilities to help businesses identify quality trends and issues, monitor performance, and make informed decisions to improve quality control processes.
