Collection Development and Planning

React Quickly to Shifts in Seasonal Requirements and Material and Product

The Apparel industry is challenged to respond more rapidly to market trends and changing consumer demand for more choices, better pricing, and quick turn-around. These challenges include increased global competition, as well as the need to target new markets and create new revenue streams.

Apparel industry leaders are looking to differentiate themselves and create a competitive advantage by aligning and coordinating design, procurement and suppliers early in the design process to accelerate time-consuming product sample review iterations and placement decisions. In addition, they can standardize product development procedures on an enterprise-wide basis and establish common metrics and procedures for measuring product development milestones and performance.

Collection Development and Planning enables companies to rapidly deploy a state of the art, scalable enterprise solution for apparel design and development to take products from trend to design to sourcing to manufacturing to the customer. Collection Development and Planning comes complete with industry-specific best practices for apparel design including pre-defined work processes, industry specific-data models, reports, role-based user interfaces, and document management capabilities. It has been optimized based on Dassault Systèmes track record of helping fashion product-design companies solve the strategic challenges of increasing global competition, shrinking product lifecycles, and reacting to ever-changing seasonal consumer demands.
