Academic leader The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and product lifecycle management (PLM) software developer Yunique Solutions Inc are partnering to bring an innovative new fashion product lifecycle management program to FIT students and fashion industry professionals.

Facilitated by $400,000 software and services donation by Yunique Solutions and a State University of New York (SUNY) grant, FIT will develop new training programs centered around the latest techniques and technologies for product development and other front-end fashion business processes. In addition to their plmOn software, the Yunique Solutions donation also includes related system installation, implementation, and training services.

FIT will initially offer the new PLM training as a program in the school's Enterprise Center. Under the management of Ms. Christine Helm, the center serves as a business training resource for artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals.

The new program will be promoted through a series of upcoming FIT seminars aimed at helping students and fashion companies realize the benefits of PLM. The new PLM program will also complement the extensive Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop training courses currently being offered at FIT.

Following an evaluation of fashion industry PLM solution providers, FIT selected Yunique as the software partner for the new program. “We were impressed with the flexibility of the Yunique software”, noted Holly Henderson, assistant adjunct professor and fashion industry consultant.
