Gerber Technology, a business unit of Gerber Scientific Inc, presented its webPDM Achievement Award recently at the FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, Calif. during the graduate thesis presentation event for the school's International Manufacturing and Product Development Advanced Study Program. Each year, Gerber Technology recognizes the student who best harnesses the functionality of Gerber's webPDM product data management software in the preparation of his/her thesis. FIDM graduating student, Heidi Riebs, earned the award this year.

FIDM's Advanced Study Program in International Manufacturing and Product Development is a comprehensive program that immerses the student in all phases of the product development cycle -- from the initial concept and design of the product, through technical design, sourcing, costing, production, and marketing to the consumer.

The nine-month partnership, which includes trips to Europe and Asia for research and trend shopping, ends with thesis presentations, where students reveal their collections and share their experiences with family, friends and potential employers. Students developed this year's collection in collaboration with Bisou Bisou, an exclusive women's apparel brand at JCPenney, designed by Michele Bohbot.

As an industry-leading supplier of computer-aided design and product lifecycle management software, Gerber believes it has a responsibility to continuously help expose students to the latest technology. Gerber provides software and hardware solutions to nearly 1,200 educational institutions in more than 80 countries.

Students at FIDM have been using Gerber's webPDM software for the past 10 years and Gerber's AccuMark pattern design, grading and marking software for the last two decades. “We are proud to support FIDM and to recognize the efforts of the students in the International Manufacturing and Product Development Advanced Study Program with this achievement award,” said Bud Staples, vice president of North American Sales for Gerber Technology. “FIDM offers students the real-life experience which is essential for success in this industry. Year after year, we're impressed by the graduates of this cutting-edge program.”
