Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials -- textiles, leather, industrial fabrics, and composite materials -- along with North Carolina State University, College of Textiles, announces the selection of Lectra Fashion Product Lifecycle Management Software (PLM) for the college's Textile and Apparel Technology and Management program.

NC State's College of Textiles, a Lectra Privilege education partner, has been using Lectra software and cutting solutions in their program for over 15 years. With the addition of Lectra Fashion PLM, students will learn how to manage the entire process of apparel production, from creation to cutting to collection development. Lectra Fashion PLM is designed specifically for the fashion industry and allows apparel companies to shorten product development and time-to-market.

"The acquisition of Lectra's Fashion PLM software will provide opportunities for our Fashion and Textile Design students to collaborate with Fashion and Textile Management students to 'problem solve' real world industry problems. The experience of combining product development, design, marketing, and merchandising, will assist in preparing our future industry leaders," stated Dr. Nancy Cassill, Professor and Department Head, Textile and Apparel Technology and Management.

The integration of Lectra Fashion PLM at NC State's College of Textiles will allow students to leverage Lectra's full range of solutions, from the Kaledo suite for design and Modaris for pattern-making and 3D sample development, to Diamino for marker-making and Vector for high-performance cutting, thus bringing all aspects of fashion development into a collaborative process.

"Lectra's relationship with the NC State College of Textiles is long standing, and we are excited at the opportunity to expand our partnership by integrating Lectra Fashion PLM," noted Roy Shurling, President of Lectra North America. "The use of apparel dedicated solutions combined with the college's state-of-the-art program and devoted faculty prepares students for an in-depth understanding of the entire product development cycle as well as the importance of collaboration among all players along the supply chain."

Both Lectra and NC State College of Textiles are proud of this ongoing partnership and continue to look for new ways to keep students and staff tuned into apparel industry trends, innovative ways of working, and the requisite supporting technologies.

"Having Lectra technology on our campus not only prepares our students for success in the industry but also draws industry professionals from surrounding areas to the university lab, enhancing NC State's leadership position in the fashion community," commented Dr. Trevor Little, Professor, Textile and Apparel Technology and Management, NC State College of Textiles.

The College of Textiles has over 111 years of teaching, research, and extension. Undergraduate degrees can be obtained in textile engineering, polymer and color chemistry, fashion and textile management, and textile technology.
