5 Working with Collections Management

This chapter contains the following topics:

5.1 Understanding Collections Management

A collection is a coherent assortment of style items. It may be put together by a manufacturer or designer each season to showcase new trends for a particular market. You can find many collections in the apparel industry based on seasons, such as winter collections and summer collections, as well as other themed collections, such as leather collection or cotton collection.

A collection offers total control of catalogues, seasonal offers, and collection overlap, with time frames, customer targets, pricing conditions and, if required, order entry specialization by collection to ensure control of distribution.

The main characteristics of collections are that they:

  • Are introduced for one brand (manufacturer).

  • Are time-bound.

    Generally, a collection is designed and marketed for one season or year.

  • Are specifically designed for one or more markets.

  • Have a multilevel structure.

    The collection structure defines the attributes of the base collection and different variations within the collection. The collection structure consists of multiple levels such as themes, brands, and styles.

  • Can contain the same style item that is present in other collections at the same time.

  • Are used by sales orders, purchase orders, and shop floor management.

By introducing a collection, you can:

  • Group related style items together.

  • Control style items used for sales, purchase, or work orders.

  • View and modify style item details using the Style Items by Collection program (PCW54).

  • Create collection templates from one or more collections using the Collection Templates Entry program (PCW42). These predefined templates are used to simplify order entry.

  • Manage sales prices by season and collection.

A collection structure defines the levels or segments within a collection. You can have up to five levels in a collection structure. These levels might reflect various brands, product lines, themes, and items for the collection. For example, a collection named European Summer Collection can have different levels of details based on the different customer groups for which the collection is defined (for example, women and men), and based on the variations in the style items that are included in the collection (for example, casual and evening). In the following diagram, the collection USA contains levels for brands, product lines, themes, and style items:

Figure 5-1 Collection USA structure

Description of Figure 5-1 follows
Description of "Figure 5-1 Collection USA structure"

Setting up a collection is similar to setting up a style item because you create levels and define a structure for both.

The steps to define a collection are:

  1. Define the collection structure code.

    Use the 41F/CS UDC to define the collection structure code.

  2. Define season codes and season years.

    Define the season codes and season years in the 41F/SE and 41F/SY UDCs.

  3. Create collection levels or segments by creating your own UDCs.

  4. Define the collection structure by attaching UDCs to the collection structure code.

    Use the Define Collection Structure Code program (PCW06) to specify which UDCs will be used for the collection.

  5. Create the collection.

    Use the Collection Management program (PCW07) to specify the collection name, season code, season year, and other basic information about the collection.

  6. Build the collection structure.

    Use the Create Collection Detail Structure program (PCW16), which is accessed from the Collection Management program, to specify the collection levels or segments that make up the collection structure. The Create Collection Detail Structure cannot be accessed directly.

  7. Add and remove style items in the collection structure.

    Use the Item Collection Detail program (PCW081), which is accessed from the Collection Detail program (PCW08) within the Collection Management program, to add style items to the collection structure. The Item Collection Detail program cannot be accessed directly.

  8. Create collection templates.

    Use the Collection Templates Entry program (PCW42) to create a collection template that can be used to simplify sales order entry and purchase order entry.

    Collection templates enable you to group a subset of style items from one or more collections.

See Setting Up Collection Templates.

This diagram illustrates the collection management process:

Description of Figure 5-2 follows
Description of "Figure 5-2 Collection Management process flow"

Note:

Every style item is not required to be attached to a collection. Use collections with appropriate style items to meet the needs of your specific business processes.

5.2 Setting Up Collection UDCs

This section provides an overview of collection UDCs and discusses how to:

  • Define the collection structure code.

  • Set up Season Code UDCs.

  • Set up Season Year UDCs.

5.2.1 Understanding Collection UDCs

Before you can define the structure of a collection, you must create the collection structure code in the 41F/CS UDC. You will specify the collection structure code to use when you define your collection structure.

Also, because a collection must be associated with a particular year and season, you must set up season codes and season years using the UDCs 41F/SE and 41F/SY respectively. Some examples of season codes are summer, winter, fall, and spring. However, the season codes are user-defined and not limited to these values. After you define the season code and season year values, you will specify the season code and season year to associate with your collection when you create the collection header.

See Creating a Collection Header.

5.3 Defining Collection Structures

This section provides an overview of collection structures, lists prerequisites, and discusses how to define collection structures:

5.3.1 Understanding Collection Structures

Collection structures provide a way to define and organize the levels used by a particular collection. You can have up to five levels in a collection structure. Each level represents a different attribute for your collection. For example, the European Summer Collection might have the following levels: brands, product lines, and themes. You specify and organize these levels when you define the collection structure. One collection structure can be used by multiple collections. Use the Collection Structure Definition program (PCW06) to define your collection structures. The collection structure details, such as the possible levels, are stored in the Collection Structure Definition table (FCW05). You will attach your collection structure to your collection when you create your collection using the Collection Management program (PCW07).

5.3.2 Prerequisites

Before you create collection structures, you must define the levels or segments to include in your structure. Similar to the levels for a style item, these levels represent different attributes for your collection. You describe these levels by creating a UDC and valid values for each level. These levels are completely user-defined and should be specific to your business. For example, you might have a collection with the following attributes:

  • Brand

  • Product Line

  • Theme

You could set up the following UDCs and values for the levels in the preceding example:

Attribute UDC Valid Values
Brand 56/BR Apollo, Gemini
Product Line 56/PL Casual, Attraction
Theme 56/TM Day, Evening, Travel

5.3.3 Forms Used to Define Collection Structures

5.3.4 Defining Collection Structures

Access the Collection Structure Definition form.

Figure 5-3 Collection Structure Definition form

Description of Figure 5-3 follows
Description of "Figure 5-3 Collection Structure Definition form"

To define collection structures:

  1. Enter the collection structure that you want to define in the Collection Structure field.

  2. Enter the product code and user-defined code values that you used to set up your levels in the Product Code and User Defined Codes fields respectively.

    For example, if your first level is Product Line and you set up your valid brand values in UDC 56/PL, then enter 56 in the Product Code field and PL in the User Defined Codes field.

    The User Defined Codes field is also sometimes referred to as a UDC type.

  3. Repeat entering the product code and user-defined code for all of the levels that you want to attach to this collection structure.

    You can attach up to five levels to a collection.

  4. Click OK.

5.4 Creating Collections

This section provides an overview of collection creation and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Collection Management (PCW07).

  • Create a collection header.

  • Create a collection structure detail.

  • Add style items to a collection.

5.4.1 Understanding Collection Creation

Three steps are involved in creating a collection. You must create both a collection header and the collection structure detail. Finally, you must add style items to your collection. The collection header is where you attach the collection structure. It includes the following information:

  • Collection name

  • Season code

  • Season year

  • Collection structure

  • Price reference date

  • Effective and expiration dates

Use the Collection Management program to create the collection header. The collection header information is stored in the Collection Header table (FCW06).

The Create Collection Detail Structure program (PCW16) is used to build the collection from the structure. It is called from the Collection Management program. In the Create Collection Detail Structure program, you build the collection by copying and pasting the available collection structure levels in a tree structure.

To add style items to your collection, you use the Item Collection Detail program (PCW081) accessed through the Add Style Items option on the Row menu of the Collection Detail program (PCW08). The Collection Detail program (PCW08) is accessed using the Collection Detail option on the Row menu of the Collection Management program (PCW07). You select the lowest collection level, where the collection hierarchy consists of a maximum of five collection levels, in the Collection Detail program (PCW08) and select the Add Style Items option on the Row menu. You can add style items to a selected collection level and remove style items from a selected collection level using the Item Collection Detail program (PCW081).

You use the Item Collection Detail program to:

  • Display collection details in the Collection Level field in the header on the Style Item Collection Detail form. (Release 9.1 Update)

    The Collection Level field displays the hierarchy for the selected collection level to which style items are being added or removed. This field is noneditable. (Release 9.1 Update)

  • Add a style item to the collection by selecting the row and clicking Select. (Release 9.1 Update)

  • Display existing and new style items included in the collection in aqua color highlight in the grid. (Release 9.1 Update)

  • Remove a style item from the collection by selecting the row and clicking Select. (Release 9.1 Update)

  • Display removed style items in red color highlight in the grid. (Release 9.1 Update)

To view the items in the collection, you use the Collection Detail by Style Item program (PCW082) which you access through the View Style Items option on the Row menu of the Collection Detail program (PCW08). The Collection Detail by Style Item form displays the hierarchy of the selected collection level in the Collection Level field in the form header. (Release 9.1 Update)

The collection detail information, such as different levels and style items that exist in a collection, is stored in the Collection Detail table (FCW07).

5.4.3 Setting Processing Options for Collection Management (PCW07)

Processing options enable you to specify the default processing for programs and reports.

5.4.3.1 Process

1. Allow Same Item in Different Collection Levels

Specify whether an item can exist in multiple collection levels (subcollections) belonging to a collection.

Values are:

Blank: Yes

1: No

2. Delete Collection Level

Specify whether the system validates that items under a collection level are used in an open sales order.

Values are:

Blank: No validation.

1: The system issues a warning if the items under a collection level have been used in an open sales order.

2: The system issues an error message if the items under a collection level have been used in an open sales order.

Note:

The first processing option is used by the Item Collection Detail program, which is called by the Collection Detail program when you use the Row menu to add style items to the collection. The second processing option applies to the Collection Detail program, which is called from the Collection Management program when you use the Row menu to go to the collection detail.

5.4.4 Creating a Collection Header

Access the Collection Revisions form.

Figure 5-4 Collection Revisions form

Description of Figure 5-4 follows
Description of "Figure 5-4 Collection Revisions form"

To create a collection header:

The required fields on this form have orange asterisks (*).

To create a collection header, complete these fields and click OK:

Collection

Enter a code that represents a coherent assortment of items introduced at the same time mostly for one brand (manufacturer), season, year, and market.

You must enter a value from the Collection Header table (FCW06).

Description Line 1

Enter a description of the collection.

Season Code

Enter a code to specify the season for which the collection is being manufactured.

Season Year

Enter a code that specifies the year of manufacture of the collection.

Collection Structure

Enter a collection structure that was defined using the Collection Structure Definition program. The collection structure is used to define various collection levels based on the UDCs. Collections can have a maximum of five collection levels. The UDC denotes the collection levels, whereas the UDC values denote the collection segment at each collection level.

Price Reference Date

Enter a date to be used to determine the price for the collection.

Note:

The Price Reference Date field is used at the time of sales order and purchase order entry to fetch the price of the style items attached under the collection.
Effective Date

Enter a date that identifies when a collection becomes active. This date is used for informational purposes only.

Expiration Date

Enter a date that identifies when a collection expires. This date is used for informational purposes only.

5.4.5 Creating a Collection Structure Detail

Access the Build Collection form.

Your collection appears at the top of the tree structure and all available collection levels appear below it. Use this form to copy and paste the collection levels that you want to add to your collection.

Figure 5-5 Build Collection form

Description of Figure 5-5 follows
Description of "Figure 5-5 Build Collection form"

To create a collection structure detail:

  1. Expand the tree structure to view all of the available collection level values.

  2. Select the collection level value (for example, Attraction or Casual) that you want to add to your collection.

  3. Click the Copy icon in the upper right-hand corner of the tree structure pane.

  4. Select your collection to which you want to add the level.

  5. Click the Paste icon in the upper right-hand corner of the tree structure pane to add it to your collection.

  6. Select the next collection level that you want to add to your collection.

  7. Click the Copy icon in the upper right-hand corner of the tree structure pane.

  8. Select the level that you previously added to your collection and click Paste.

    You are creating a structure for your collection, so the levels will nest within one another. For example, you may have a level called Casual and want to add a Travel-wear level within the Casual level.

    Note:

    If there is any level mismatch while building the structure, the particular level will not be added. For example, Travel-wear cannot be added under Asia Fall collection because Travel-wear is the second level. It can only be added under a first level, such as Casual.
  9. Repeat these steps for each collection level value that you want to add to your collection.

  10. If you would like to delete a collection level, select the level and click Delete.

    If the collection level that you are attempting to delete is used in any sales orders, you may receive a warning or an error depending on how you have the Delete Collection Level processing option set.

  11. When you are finished creating your collection structure, click Close.

5.4.6 Adding Style Items to a Collection

Access the Collection Detail form.

Figure 5-6 Collection Detail form

Description of Figure 5-6 follows
Description of "Figure 5-6 Collection Detail form"

To add style items to a collection:

  1. Select the lowest level of the collection and select Add Style Items from the Row menu.

    Note:

    If the lowest level of the collection is not selected, then you will not be able to perform any action from the Row menu.
  2. Enter the style items or other criteria that you want to find in the Query By Example (QBE) line at the top of the grid and click Find.

  3. Select the style items that you want to include in the collection by selecting the check box in the row header for each and clicking Select. If the style root level 0 item is selected, then its corresponding child items will be added to collection.

    Selected rows display in aqua color highlight in the grid. (Release 9.1 Update)

    Note:

    Depending on how you set the Allow Same Item in Different Collection Levels processing option, you may or may not be able to select the same item for multiple collection levels (subcollections) belonging to a collection. If the processing option is blank, you can select the same item for multiple collection levels; if the processing option has a value of 1, you cannot.
  4. You can also use the options above the grid to see all of the attributes associated with a particular style item and narrow down the style items to include in the collection at a lower level.

    For example, if you select color, all of the colors associated with the style item are displayed in the grid. You might then select size; all of the sizes with respect to the color of the style item are displayed. If you have already included the style item with the color black in the collection, all of the sizes associated with the color black have a green check mark showing that they are all associated with the collection.

  5. To deselect a particular style item, click the check box in the row header for each and click Select and the style item will be removed from the collection. The row initially displays in red color highlight. The row becomes gray after you click Find. (Release 9.1 Update)

  6. After you have selected all of the style items that you want to include in the collection, click Close.

  7. To verify that your style items have been added, select View Style Items from the Row menu.

Collection Level

Displays the hierarchy of the selected collection level to which style items are being added or removed. (Release 9.1 Update)

5.5 Setting Up Collection Templates

This section provides an overview of collection templates, lists a prerequisite, and discusses how to:

  • Define a collection template name.

  • Build the collection template.

5.5.1 Understanding Collection Templates

A collection template is a subset of style items from one or more collections. You can add style items from multiple collections to a collection template. For example, if a designer has 100 style items under six collections but only wants to use 20 style items associated with three particular collections during sales order entry, he can attach the desired style items in the template. Templates are all user-defined; no predefined templates are available. Use the Collection Templates Entry program (PCW42) to create templates. Collection templates are stored in the Matrix Work File table (FCW20).

These templates are used during sales order entry, as well as purchase order entry, to simplify the process of entering orders. A collection template contains frequently ordered style items. A collection template applies to all customers. For example, you can create a collection template that lists the most frequently ordered style items from a particular collection. Or you could identify a collection template that lists all of the most frequently ordered style items, regardless of their collection. You should regularly update existing collection templates to ensure that the order entry process remains accurate and efficient. For example, you can add and remove style items on an existing collection template. When you use a collection template with a sales order, the matrix order entry displays all of the style items associated with the collection template that you are using so that you can choose which style items to order and enter the appropriate quantities.

This diagram illustrates how collection templates are created and used during sales order entry:

Figure 5-7 Collection template overview

Description of Figure 5-7 follows
Description of "Figure 5-7 Collection template overview"

5.5.2 Prerequisite

Before you create a collection template in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Apparel Management system, you must set the processing option for the Collection Templates Entry program to specify the version of the Collection Template List report (RCW10) that you want to call. This program is used to generate the matrix entry display for the collection template that you define. It is called when you select Generate Matrix from the Form menu on the Collection Template Detail form. It is also called when you select OK after making a change to a template, such as adding or removing an item.
