PTC, a leading Information technology company from US, has announced that beginning in spring 2018, students in fashion design management will be able to leverage PTC’s leading FlexPLM retail product lifecycle management (PLM) solution as part of research and coursework, offered by the Department of Fibre Science & Apparel Design (FSAD) at Cornell University.

FlexPLM will be introduced to students in fashion design management courses in a unique collaboration that offers an experiential component to their course of study through the hands-on use of a popular industry tool. The solution, implemented by ITC Infotech, will help students better understand PLM technology and enable students to increase their marketable skills as they go on to become product developers, merchandisers, and buyers.

Tasha Lewis, assistant professor of fibre science & apparel design, College of Human Ecology at Cornell University said, “A retail PLM solution enables a new level of teaching and research that allows for simulation of data organisation used by apparel brands and product visibility to streamline processes in support of innovative product development. Knowing how to use one of the industry’s prominent PLM software platforms will provide students with a set of unique skills required to be competitive in today’s increasingly digital and data driven apparel industry.”

FlexPLM offers robust retail PLM capabilities, including line planning, specification management, merchandising, and other essential PLM capabilities for managing a retailer’s complete assortment of products. Designed for retail-specific needs, FlexPLM enables retailers to achieve faster time-to-value and develop more innovative and profitable products. Over two-thirds of leading retail and consumer-product companies have selected FlexPLM, enabling them to create and collaborate more easily, streamline supply chains, and deliver more inspired and on-trend products to market.

The FSAD provides students with an opportunity to study and research fibres, fabrics, apparel, and the apparel industry from design, management, historical, and scientific perspectives.

Eric Symon, general manager, retail, PTC said, “There is tremendous value in educating future employees in state-of-the-art technology that is being used by leading companies. It not only benefits the student to be able to bring that experience and understanding into their new careers, but also helps companies by enabling them to hire individuals that can become productive more quickly as a result of that early exposure. We are excited to work with the FSAD at Cornell University to transform retail education.” (GK)
