Seasons form an important aspect in the product life cycle for the fashion industry.
The production of fashion wear is determined or varies qualitatively according to the season for which it is manufactured.
An example of seasons would be summer, winter and others. The reason for such a demarcation of a year's production schedule on the basis of seasonal requirement is understandable, as the demand of fashion wear is almost always seasonal. For instance, woolen garments are in demand only in winter.
In the fashion industry, a season belongs to a season year and can have collections associated with it. Collections can in turn have themes associated with them. Every season has a validity period.
Customizing is necessary to define the season types and activate the season determination within sales and purchasing documents
The Season workbench is used to create and manage seasons. You use the workbench to not only define, change, and delete season year, season, collection, and theme, but also to maintain sales and purchasing views for seasons and assign materials to the relevant seasons.
The season workbench offers you the following three different views:
- Full screen view
- Tree view
- Grid view
Season maintenance can be carried out using any one of the views.
All processes are controlled by season, collection and theme. Each fashion product can be assigned to one or multiple seasons and the season master data determines the purchasing and sales period of the product. Purchasing and sales documents will always carry the season information and also inventory can be split by season if desired.
