Effective immediately, assyst and Ahlers AG, one of Europe's leading men's fashion manufacturers are to cooperate closely with one another in the development of technological innovations. The companies' focus will be on process and product development in the apparel industry.

“In order to achieve our strategic, vertically-oriented objectives – and these include short time-to-market, high quality-to-market and costs savings – we intend to expand and further optimize our use of technology.

In this respect, assyst gives us a real edge on the market and customized solutions”, says Uwe Dubbert, Managing Director of the Ahlers Zentralverwaltung GmbH (Central Administration). “This innovation partnership means a high level of commitment for us. We laid the groundwork for our agreement during intensive discussions - and now we're looking forward to a mutually trusting and rewarding business relationship.”

One of Ahler's partnership aims is the seamless continuity of processes, from development right up to production - and to achieve this, the company is equipping all its CAD workplaces with cad.assyst 2010, the new release. Ahlers is also testing the automarker.com platform for structured laying and order optimization.

Another cornerstone of this cooperation agreement is the development of an expanded, vertical framework collection planning program, including complete integration with the Ahlers area management and ERP software systems.

The collection development will be harmonized throughout the entire range of Ahler's brands. The next few months will also see the company's various PDM systems standardized, based on plm.assyst. Here particular attention will be paid to the functional system expansion of the PLM system, which will be optimally supported by the verticalization of the Ahlers Group.

The software company and the apparel manufacturer intend to use these products to realize a seamless process. To help achieve this objective, Ahlers will participate in the further development of the software. In return, Ahlers will receive new functions some time before they are introduced to the market.

In the workwear sector, Ahlers will also test the use of Human Solutions products for the Pionier Workwear brand name. The use of 3D body scanners and XFit, the mass customization software will increase the future efficiency of employee measurement in corporate fashion customer projects.

This close cooperation with Ahlers means a huge market advantage for assyst and Human Solutions as far as knowledge is concerned. “Close cooperation with our customers in the form of innovation partnerships enables us to accurately gauge the requirements of the market”, explained Dr. Andreas Seidl, Managing Director of assyst and Human Solutions.

“This means we can develop the right technologies to enable our customers to surmount the challenges in their own markets. Innovation partnerships are therefore an important integral part of our 'Your business first' strategy”, he added by saying.
