VF Corp. Installs SAP Apparel Footwear Solution

VF Corp., Greensboro, N.C., announced that it has successfully implemented the first phase of the SAP Apparel Footwear Solution (AFS) in its domestic jeanswear operation.

AFS is a comprehensive industry-specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that simplifies the way companies plan, process, track and ship products.

SAP AFS controls the systems that comprise the informational backbone of the supply chain. The procurement, materials management, production planning and finance components of SAP went "live" in February in VF's Jeanswear coalition, marking the first successful large-scale implementation of an apparel-specific SAP solution.

"Three years ago, we identified SAP as a partner who could help us design a real time interactive supply chain solution specific to our needs as an apparel manufacturer," said Mackey McDonald, VF chairman and CEO. "Now, with their help, we have been able to create a world-class ERP platform that will streamline our internal ordering, tracking, shipment and goods fulfillment, and achieve operational efficiencies throughout our system."
