Lectra unveils latest innovations at WSA Expo & Conf
Jan '08
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to the soft goods industries, will present its complete, integrated range dedicated to footwear, luggage and leather goods markets at the Materials at WSA Expo & Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 19-21, 2008.

The latest versions of Romans CAD Software – state-of-the-art 3D solution which allows for real-time modification, validation and collaboration, will be on display. Learn more about the new generation of automated cutters, combining power with intelligence.

"In a world where globalization dominates local markets, the footwear, luggage and leather goods sector has to overcome new challenges, with consumers being increasingly demanding in terms of style and price," explains Pierre Bonnet, director of the footwear, luggage and leather goods market for Lectra. "For manufacturers to build strong brands, constantly renew their styles and modernize production, innovative technologies and comprehensive solutions are vital."

The only PDM software genuinely dedicated to footwear currently on the market :
Romans CAD Software Data Management is the only PDM software dedicated to footwear currently available on the market. It significantly accelerates the collection creation process through real-time sharing between decision-makers, designers, suppliers and customers of all data generated during the design phase of new products. This information may be in the form of technical documents but may also be highly realistic 3D simulations.

The integration of Romans CAD Software Data Management with other applications throughout the product design chain can more than halve the time needed to design a new collection and drastically cut costs by reducing production time and the number of prototypes needed. Those involved in the process receive and share unique, customized information in real time, regardless of whether they are working on site or remotely.

Pierre Bonnet explains, "With traditional processes, a company with multiple sites needs a certain amount of time to develop a model from the first sketch to design approval. With the tools Lectra is offering, the time needed to develop and approve a virtual product and produce the only physical prototype necessary for final validation is significantly reduced."
