The aim is to reduce time-to-market even as the number of collections produced increases. Specially developed for apparel manufacturers, these new developments relate to collection, product, and resource management. Lectra Fashion PLM V1R5 revolutionizes collection and product management. First, Lectra has launched a new way of controlling the various steps in the development process: workflow alerts reflect the priority level of the relevant products, groups of products or collections.
