Lawson updates its fashion PLM solution

Aug '10
Lawson Software announced a technology platform update for the Lawson Fashion Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. This latest release, Lawson Fashion PLM 3.7, supports the Microsoft SQL 2008 database and Windows server 2008 (64 bit) and is now generally available. It also supports Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8 for users running the Microsoft Windows Vista (32 bit) operating system and Microsoft Explorer 8 for those moving on to the new Microsoft Windows 7 (32 bit) operating system.

Lawson has delivered a number of updates to Fashion PLM over the last two years, delivering additional functionality based on customer feedback. This latest update offers further enhancements to the interface between Lawson Fashion PLM and the core Lawson ERP system, which was announced in September 2009. The latest release also adds ten functional enhancements to the previous list of 64 features delivered within two years. Key enhancements include:

• The Lawson PLM to Lawson ERP interface now supports the updating of style information for colorways or sizes which have been added or removed from a style, help fashion companies save time and reduce the need for manual changes.
• Mass updating of style information held within Product Manager helps improve user productivity and shorten time-to-market.
• The Fabric and Trim module now includes new user-definable search fields for fabric and trim, extending the capabilities previously introduced for product searches within the Product Manager module.

Lawson Fashion PLM supports the product design and development processes of private brand retailers and manufacturers of apparel and accessories in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The raw materials management library helps companies define, develop and test fabrics more effectively and efficiently, which helps reduce the risk of potential product issues and production delays. Fabrics can then be adapted or reused across different styles and aggregated usage data helps in price negotiations with suppliers.

“Fast Fashion and sustainability initiatives at many apparel companies are driving the need for solutions to support the product design and development process,” said Frédéric Champalbert, general manager, Fashion, for Lawson. “Lawson Fashion PLM helps companies shorten their time to market and supports technical and ethical compliance as part of vendor management capabilities.”
