Last updated on JULY 14, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Apparel Management - Version 9.1 to 9.1 [Release 9.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


EnterpriseOne 9.1
In the EnterpriseOne Apparel Product, there is currently not any functionality to produce Sewing Instructions to feed into a bundling system (also not currently in the base software of EnterpriseOne).

In a make-to order-environment, the Master Planning Schedule (MPS) will generate master work order messages, which when processed will lead to the creation of the child work orders. A master work order may lead to the creation of 20 child work orders. For example, a child work order for waist sizes 30,32,34,36, and 38. Inseam sizes 30,32,34,36.
This combination will result in 20 work orders and 20 patterns, but the customer doesn’t want an even number of each item, they may order difference quantities for different sizes.

Currently, the process is to use a third-party software - Gerber (CAD System) to optimize the placement of the various patterns.
1. The patterns, when assembled, form a marker, or several markers.
2. A calculation is then applied to determine the optimal layout on the cutting table. This calculation objective is the largest number of piles and lowest number of copies. Copies being the number of markers on the cutting table and repetitions being the duplication of the pattern within the marker.

3. The following is a summary of the restrictions.
A. The number of of repetitions cannot exceed 3.
B. The number of plies cannot exceed 40.
C. The smallest number of copies.
D. The highest number of piles.

The calculations result in a set of instructions which directs the employ on how to spread the cloth on the table.

Note: The sewing instruction are actually produced twice. Once as a guide and second as the result. This is due to the fact that the actual spreading of the fabric isn’t known until the job has been performed. The fabric roll could have damaged section, or the roll could be short, forcing the spreader to use multiple rolls. The Cutting instructions solution includes providing the planners with the ability to define which rolls (Lots) to use and the spreader with the ability to add additional rolls (Lots).
