Document Fashion Master Data
Fashion Master Data (New)
Fashion Master Data is the document used by a party to provide the receiver with technical-logistic information about a product.
It may regard raw materials, components or final goods.
The present guide has been issued to assist the companies of the FASHION sector in the implementation of the standard XML document type "FASHION MASTER DATA”, providing all the instruction required for its use in any context of e-commerce between Brands, Apparel Producers, subcontractors or logistic or retail organisations.
All the rules required for the construction and validation of the document are embedded into the specific XML-Schema, which is detailed in section "Implementation guide".
The message can have various uses: for example it can be issued by the Supplier of goods to communicate the technical-logistical characteristics of an article that the Receiver will receive; otherwise it might be issued by the Brand to communicate the technical characteristics of an article to the Subcontractor that he will receive to transform or which he will have to produce. div>
The sender forwards this document when he has to feed a registry of the characteristics of the goods that will then be treated in some way (sold or stored or processed for example). div>
The main function of the message is to provide information of various kinds: logistics (dimensions, packaging, handling, stackability), commercial (category, line or group of products), technical (size, treatments, ..), operational ( eg CITES). div>
