Product Lifecycle Management

Product Lifecycle Management
Historically, the apparel industry has utilized a wide variety of system methods and controls to develop new products, track the manufacturing process, and deliver finished products to customers. Often times designers, merchants, buyers, technical designers, and production associates perform their tasks independently. Attempts to integrate these tasks using a traditional ERP or back office systems have generally failed due to the dynamic nature of this process. ERP Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), on the other hand, offers a sophisticated system designed specifically for your market and allows you to successfully integrate product development, manufacturing, and distribution processes.

ERP PLM enables best-practice processes by providing more comprehensive, detailed, and organized information, all in real-time, to ensure accurate and informed decision-making. With data accessible through a single source, the immediate benefits include ease of set-up, little or no duplicate efforts, and standardization. Users will also leverage the extensive functionality present in other modules of the ERP Enterprise Suite to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind complete product lifecycle management offering.

ERP PLM integrates every individual, every department, and every company from design to delivery into a larger value-added supply chain that includes colleagues, customers, and suppliers – delivering new levels of efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
