An Apparel special report: PLM for Apparel 2017
A recent Gartner survey asked fashion brands which top features PLM software vendors should add to their solutions. Calendar, workflow and critical path management came in second while virtual prototyping and 3D visualization in product design and development took the top slot.
Fashion companies are increasingly adopting PLM technologies, which include dashboards, analytics, production automation and business intelligence to improve their business performance. When digging deeper to discover the most sought-after benefits, process standardization, less time spent in development, higher quality and shorter lead time to market have emerged as part of their wish list.
Discover these and many more results in this Gartner apparel report and see why PLM applications are key to meeting the requirements of your entire product lifecycle.
