AIMS donated their software to FIDM so that future fashionista’s can better understand the business side of the industry. “AIMS is considered to be the leading apparel software in the industry and education has always been a priority for us” says Henry Cherner (Co-founder/Managing Partner and AIMS Education Professor).
AIMS was first introduced to students at LA Trade Tech College in 1997. Knowing the ins and outs of the fashion industry and what fashion students were being taught at various trade schools and colleges, Henry Cherner saw that there was a gap that still needed to be filled between designing, merchandising, etc. and business concepts.
Henry and his founding partner of AIMS, Scott Chaban, had built a successful automated tool for inventory management, order taking, shipping, accounting, EDI , etc. and saw that there was a strong tie between classroom education, technology and an evolving clothing manufacturing business world and that students within this industry needed more than just a fashion sense to be successful.
So, Henry was brought in from industry to create a curriculum for Fashion Merchandising Math/Costing program and instituted it into various fashion programs. As time went on and the AIMS software itself started to evolve, and there was a need of more people to better understand how manage and apparel ERP Software, so Henry created an AIMS Certification program.
The program itself teaches how to use an inventory management software (on the AIMS platform) and how to automate the many facets of the apparel industry using the system.
AIMS 360 is dedicated to educating and training of future stars in the apparel industry. AIMS is currently being taught at colleges and trade schools such as Los Angeles Trade Technical College, Art Institute of CA San Diego, Cal Poly Pomona AMM, UCLA Extension, Saddleback College Irvine, CA and in the Fall of 2012 it will be taught at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising).
