Dassault Systèmes, a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Wing Tai's Zymmetry Group, the leading manufacturing and sourcing solutions provider focusing on the apparel industry, announced the availability of the ENOVIA Apparel Accelerator for Sourcing and Production. Jointly developed, the Apparel Accelerator for Sourcing and Production seamlessly connects global sourcing production offices and external parties with brand and retail headquarters, all on one PLM platform.

The ENOVIA Apparel Accelerator for Sourcing and Production is based on Dassault Systèmes' new V6 platform. It supports DS's PLM 2.0 vision – product lifecycle management on line for everyone – as well as the ENOVIA V6 key values: global collaborative innovation, single PLM platform for Intellectual Property (IP) management, online creation and collaboration, ready to use PLM business processes and lower cost of ownership.

“Over the past five years the apparel industry has experienced remarkable changes, generating challenges from intense competition to pricing pressures to season and line complexity to time-to-market,” says Joel Lemke, ENOVIA CEO.

“As a result, apparel brands, retailers and suppliers need a system to streamline their communication and make sure everyone is on the same page, which ultimately benefits the overall business. We're proud to partner with global apparel industry leader Wing-Tai's Zymmetry Group to deliver the very first solution to address these demands by approaching product development and sourcing as a unified business process.”

Mike Relich, CIO of Guess Inc, says, “For global, virtual teams designing products 24 hours a day, faxes and e-mails don't work anymore. Our industry needs a system that helps create a seamless, responsive relationship between the trend-setting creative side of the business and the practical business and production side where costs can be managed. The ENOVIA apparel sourcing solution is the glue that ties everything together.”

The ENOVIA Apparel Accelerator for Sourcing and Production integrates sourcing within the design and development process, allowing companies to seamlessly manage collaboration with production offices and retailers. It supports sourcing, costing, and pre-production processes and offers visibility and process control for brand and retail global operations.

The new solution will enable companies to:
• Improve gross margins by allowing more control over the cost analysis and negotiation with vendors, as well as enforcing more structured hand-offs between headquarters, buying offices, agents and vendors.

• Increase management control by providing visibility beyond product development activities into pre-production and production processes and assigning associated costs accordingly, including the ability to determine how changes in materials and sourcing options may impact the product's supplier costand estimated landed cost.
