One of the applications of Datome in the textile industry is the certification of the supply chain, in order to ensure regulatory compliance concerning the materials used and to enhance transparency towards consumers.
Managing the procurement and processing of materials through a unified platform for sustainability information tracking. Datome serves as a tool for mapping supply chains and sustainability information (certifications, origins, quantities), acting as an aggregator between the company, suppliers, and regulatory bodies to facilitate data collection necessary for the transparency of a raw material or a product.
Company X manufactures high-quality leather products using foreign-sourced raw materials and outsources their processing.
- Company X places an order for qty N of leather, communicating the order to the supplier.
- The supplier accesses Datome and creates a "Leather" asset, inputting the required data (e.g., certification, production date, type, quantity). Once the asset is generated, the supplier downloads the associated QR code, attaches it to the order, and marks it as "sent." In case of a third-party lot inspection request, scanning the QR code provides access to the product sheet with the necessary information.
- Upon receiving the leather lot, Company X logs into Datome and marks it as "In stock."
- Using the leather lots in stock, Company X requests processing of a specific quantity from a third-party processor.
- Upon receiving the request, the third-party processor logs into Datome and updates the status of the assigned lots from "In stock" to "In processing," completing the sheet with all required information (e.g., processing type, processing date, ingredients, certifications).
- After completing the processing, the third-party processor marks the assigned leather lots as "completed."
- Company X has visibility, through the list of "leather" type assets, into all ordered, in-stock, in-processing, and completed materials.
- When Company X initiates production of a finished product (e.g., bag), a new "Bag" asset is created on Datome, linked to the leather(s) that will be used. In addition to the information about the raw material used, the product sheet can include additional details, such as the number of pieces produced or the production location.
- Each bag in the lot is paired by a QR code linked to the respective lot, providing access to the lot's information and the to details ok the leather used.
The unique nature of the processing for various materials demands adapting the supply chain management process. Datome easily meets this requirement by allowing customizable mapping of the processes, accommodating any supply chain specifics.
