Abstract: The textiles and clothing (TC) industry is well-known to be highly intensive in labor, raw material, product, capital, and inventory. Nowadays, companies in the TC supply chains have employed a wide array of technologies for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of different business processes. In particular, the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system has been rather widely implemented, and it has proven to be critical to the success of many TC companies. This paper aims to investigate the applications of ERP systems and explore the respective enabling technologies in the TC supply chains via studying various real company cases and reviewing some real ERP solutions. In addition, the main barriers of implementing the ERP systems in the TC industry are identified. Various critical success factors for the implementation of ERP systems are discussed. We conclude by exploring some future development directions.
