Any time a sales order comes in, there is a requested quantity, time, and location. Fashion companies need to know this information to understand whether they can fulfill the request. But it’s often not just a simple check of inventory and fulfillment — there are many factors to consider: What if the order changes at the last moment? What if something happens in the production process that could potentially affect delivery? With a first-come, first-served (FCFS) strategy, are orders from the top customers getting fulfilled in time over lower-priority orders?
These are questions that advanced Advanced Available-to-Promise (aATP) on SAP S/4HANA Fashion can help fashion companies answer. This functionality is directly embedded within the solution, designed to streamline order fulfillment, improve customer satisfaction, and increase profitability.
