Fashion Warehouse: case history Miroglio Group
The application has leveraged our ability to manage different issues associated with different customers: managing wedding dresses surely requires different skills compared to managing shoes for example. Above all, the system ensures responsiveness and flexibility allowing us to serve new customers while providing tailor-made services.

requirements

The items managed range from garments on hanger, garments on shelf, trims, shoes and even wedding dresses: in order to meet the specific customer’s needs, each brand has been addressed to dedicated areas of the DC featuring different technologies according to the operational requirements.

The warehouse in Pollenzo is a dynamic situation, constantly moving and able to change at any time along with the market demand providing thorough analysis of the customer’s requirements to arrange new layouts and operations always focusing on maximum responsiveness.

In 2016 the company decided to choose a WMS application not only specific for the Fashion industry; this solution had to be extremely flexible being able to meet the requirements of both the specific Fashion industry and many other key industries.

"We were looking for a WMS solution in order to manage more efficiently both the finished products and raw materials/components warehouses for the manufacturing-related logistics. We eventually chose the SMA.I.L:) StockSystem WMS by Replica Sistemi”.

Project

The solution we were looking for – according to B FASHION -  had to comply with the high complexity arising from a great variety of customers, industries, volume, distribution channels and specific technologies such as automation, RFID and pick-to-light.

The WMS seamlessly integrates with sorters by combining each cell of the on-shelf-sorter and each pipe of the on-hanger-sorter with their destination point and further - prior to any packaging operation - it requires the confirmation that what has been prepared matches what was supposed to.

Thanks to the integration between the WMS and the courier’s ERPs (20 national couriers) packages are marked directly with the courier’s label: this is a significant improvement for us because - as a consequence of our considerable outbound volume – packages ready for dispatch are directly taken to the central hub without transiting through local hubs anymore.

This provides much more precision - as errors are strongly reduced - and faster deliveries.

In this plant we manage also the reverse-logistics: returns coming from the shops are refurbished and processed to restore the same quality they had in the production-line and be once again available via both the retail and wholesale distribution channels.

Benefits

Thanks to the operational strategy adopted and to the integration with Replica Sistemi’s SMA.I.L:) StockSystem, Miroglio Group can: 

  • to process a huge number of orders per hour with maximum customization capabilities,
  • to increase our productivity without changing any process.
  • to have  more flexibility in Fashion industry, constantly and quickly changing besides being increasingly omni-channel oriented,
  • to manage each customer as a specific project while ensuring continuous improvements and immediate responsiveness.
