The solution of the project of variants of articles regarding the management of changes of format consisted in simplifying the registration of a variant and keeping all the variants grouped so that the single item still had the same code.
The solution for the variants of articles project with regard to the management of format changes consisted on simplifying the registration of a variant and keeping all the variants grouped so that a single item shows always the same code.
After the adoption of this solution, customers of GM Food Iberica place their orders by always requesting the same code. This is performed regardless of the appearance of new formats and the discontinuity of old ones. By doing so, benefits are obtained both for GM Food Iberica and the end customer. GM Food Iberica avoids sale losses that previously occurred when changing the code (now a single code always serves the product). On the other hand, the end customer avoids suffering from service failures. As for the shipment of goods, thanks to this project GM Food Iberica is able to provide any format of the same article to its customers, therefore avoiding any possible lack of service.
